    I just put my copy into the trash. The recipes I made were very, very bad. The “Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies” hit the trash. The recipe I got from her web site “Valencia Orange Cake” was off too – off taste and texture – yuk. I do a lot of cooking and baking and use quality ingredients ($$$). This is not a 5 star cookbook — I wish it was. Pretty book – failed results. ­čÖü

    I bought this book and made some of the recipes in it and all turned out very bad. At first I thought it was because I am new to cooking with almond flour but I also bought two other mainly almond flour cookbooks at the same time and their recipes were actually pretty good. I made the cheese crackers in this book…the ones she says her friends say taste just like Goldfish Crackers…don’t believe it for a minute. Mine went in the trash. The book has nice paper and the pictures are attractive but the food …at least what I tried was bad, bad bad. I suggest you go to her website and try some of the recipes she has posted online before you decide to purchase the book. I personally wouldn’t have the nerve to publish a book with recipes this bad and put my name on it.

    I love this little book. The recipes are quick and easy to make. Plus they’re delicious. I’m presently working with some of the recipes to decrease the amount of grape seed oil in order to lower the calories-from-fat in some of the desserts to which I have developed an addiction!

    I have to maintain a gluten free diet, but the rest of my family does not. Many of the recipes in this cookbook are favorites of my children and my husband. The added bonus is that the recipes are nutritious, compared to some other gluten free products and cookbook recipes which unfortunately contain too much sugar and not enough fiber. The author also has a great blog with additional recipes which can be found at […]

    I purchased this book with great expectations because of the many positive reviews. Then read the section about stocking the pantry and found that Bob’s Red Mill almond flour will not work in these recipes. Since that is the only brand of almond meal/flour available where I live my only choice is to purchase almond meal flour online and have the added cost of shipping or not use this cookbook. I tried one recipe using Bob’s Red Mill brand almond meal and it tasted terrible. I strongly recommend that anyone considering purchasing this cookbook scout their local stores and determine whether they can buy an almond meal that will work with this book. Apparently all brands except Bob’s Red Mill will work.

    My other problems with the book are the extensive use of Agave Nectar and grapeseed oil. I would prefer a sweetener such as stevia which doesn’t contain fructose and an oil with more omega 3. Grapeseed and agave nectar are also very expensive, making every recipe very expensive to prepare.
