Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry is showing up on bookshelves everywhere.
Although it seemed like a long time coming, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry was released on June 18! While devoting some time and energy to promoting the book locally over the next few weeks, I am also enjoying reading reviews as readers get their hands on copies and start preparing the gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and nightshade-free recipes for their families and friends.
I hope these reviews help provide a representative sample […]

Recently it was brought to my attention that I made a rather large factual error in my post Gluten Free is Not Healthy. You see, in this post I claimed:
Gluten free goods are generally made with ingredients such as rice, corn, potatoes, sorghum, tapioca and millet, which are higher in carbohydrates and lower in protein and other nutrients than wheat flour.
I apologize, as I did make a mistake in claiming that sorghum is not as healthy as wheat flour itself. […]

If you’re the type of person that isn’t fooled by the growing volume of processed gluten-free goodies on grocery store shelves, you will love the forthcoming book Eat Like a Dinosaur from the Paleo Parents. This book is full of family friendly, super healthy, and may I say, super delicious, recipes. And I am proud to say that I wrote the forward to it.
You will love the recipes for 50-50 Bacon Burgers, Chocolate Chip Cookies (date sweetened) and everything in between. […]

I must confess, when it comes to anything related to the Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook, I am completely biased.
Stephanie O’Dea, the author of that book, as well as her latest tome of recipes More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: 200 Brand-New, Budget-Friendly, Slow-Cooker Recipes is a good friend of mine.
I met Stephanie at Blogher Food 2010. I did not know a soul at the entire conference (though Shirley and Diane were kind enough to take […]

Just in case I didn’t make it perfectly clear from my Spiced Pecans and Cinnamon Pecan Brittle posts, I’m madly in love with Dorie Greenspan’s latest book Around My French Table –it’s quite a collection of recipes.

Today I’m giving away a copy of The Spunky Coconut Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts: Gluten Free, Casein Free, and Often Egg Free by Kelly of The Spunky Coconut. This is an amazing cookbook, whether you’re gluten free or not. I love Kelly’s food. It’s delicious and I find her cooking just a bit healthier than mine –which is a good thing.
I had the luxury of eating actual recipes from this book made by Kelly herself. They were all delectable. My […]

I had the privilege of listening to the lovely, brilliant and beautiful Georgia Pellegrini speak on a panel at Blogher Food 2010. Afterwords we chatted for a bit and Georgia was kind enough to give me a signed copy of her book, Food Heroes: 16 Culinary Artisans Preserving Tradition.
I promptly devoured this book and highly recommend it to all folks that are interested in where our food comes from, along with great writing (and recipes too!). This tome of […]

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving day. And I have so very much to be thankful for. Yes, life has its challenges, however, today, I am focused on gratitude and all of the many blessings I have.
First, I am so thankful for my amazing husband and my 2 delightful (and oh so helpful and cooperative) boys. Second, though maybe not even in that order, I am thankful for my health, especially given all of the challenges I have faced in this arena. Getting […]

Below is a list of my favorite restaurants in Boulder Colorado. I am asked by readers daily about good restaurants here in Boulder that will cater to special dietary needs and work for those eating gluten free.
Keep in mind, these restaurants for the most part do not have dedicated gluten free kitchens, or even gluten free menus. They are simply restaurants that I go to that have great, fresh, wholesome food (well, at least the restaurants listed in the first box) […]

Eric Schlosser examines the birth of fast food culture in this captivating survey of postwar America.
Fast Food Nation reveals the impacts of this industry on our country, taking a hard look at how fast food has lead to the homogenization of our society, hastened the “malling” of our landscapes and lead to the systemic exploitation of the teenage workforce.
Schlosser reveals frightening information regarding the unsanitary conditions of fast food production. He also uncovers the industry’s efforts to entice the […]

Peter Singer, a bio-ethicist at Princeton University and Jim Mason, who grew up as a fifth generation farmer, have written this book, an engaging tell-all about the origins of the food in your fridge.
Their voyage literally begins at the dinner table of three average American families with differing tastes and socio-economic backgrounds and continues as the authors set out to trace the provenance of the foods we eat, with stops along the way to check out the validity of labels […]
