For weeks I've been pouring over this cookbook.  I had heard about it around the net but had no intentions of purchasing it. In fact, it never even crossed my mind. I don't eat gluten free, I'm not vegan, and I'm not on an elimination diet -- all three things that this book embraces.  What drew me in was the cover. It caught my eye in the book store and I started flipping through it. The gorgeous photos kept my attention but the recipes really are what spoke to me.  The ingredients are natural, healthy, and simple.  The food sounded amazing AND healthy - bonus.

The first recipe I made were


They're called Sweet Potato Five Spice Muffins and they taste JUST like my chai tea smoothies (which I'm trying to cut back on) so they were a huge hit.  Made from sweet potatoes, some gluten free flour, and my new best friend, Chinese Five Spice, I ate these babies for days.  I should also note that they are THE heaviest muffins I've ever made. I couldn't believe the weight of them! This is great because they actually keep me full. And I'm always hungry. Seriously, ask my family.


I eat with my eyes -- aka, I'm ascetic. I mean, look at all that color! I love to cook with colorful and beautiful dishes, not to mention ingredients -- which this cookbook is loaded with! (This cute cup measurer from Anthro doesn't hurt in the color department, either.) This week I plan to cook up one of her chicken recipes and I'm really looking forward to it. If it's anything like the muffins, I won't be disappointed.

As a side note: I just bought my first loaf of Ezekiel bread. This book made me do it. Verdict coming later.


Find "It's All Good" here for a lot less than what I found at Barnes & Noble.
