Cookbooks come and go… some are beautiful but quite impractical. Others become family favorites with dog eared pages and personal notes, and are passed on through generations. I have a hunch that Elizabeth Nylands’s Cooking With Coconut Oil will be one of the latter! It has beautiful pictures of course… but most importantly, it is filled with practical, healthy recipes for tasty dishes that that you will actually want to serve and that ou and your family will be very happy to eat.
You do not have to be a follower of the Paleo diet/lifestyle or eat gluten or grain free to enjoy these dishes and make use of this book.
Elizabeth starts out by explaining how the book came to be, and then shares some information about the the health benefits of using coconut oil, and also describes some of the other basic ingredients she uses in her kitchen. The recipes are divided into practical categories:
- Salads and Dressings
- Snacks and Starters
- Desserts and Baked Goods
We have enjoyed a few of Elizabeth’s dishes so far… and as a matter of fact, I am making the Zucchini Pancakes for breakfast this morning!
I hope you will have a look at Cooking With Coconut Oil for yourself. I have checked out the Amazon page for this book and see that it is also available for your Kindle. You can have a ‘peek inside’ the book there as well. ( I am not affiliated with Amazon in any way... just thought I should mention that.)
You can find Elizabeth at her blog Guilty Kitchen if you want to learn more about her and keep up with her news.
