A new cookbook

Several weeks ago, a publishing company sent me a cookbook to try - Eat Well, Feel Well by Kendall Conrad.

Normally, I pour through a cookbook and stick post-it notes all over the place to mark things I want to try. Some of these recipes look absolutely wonderful. However, 'round these here parts, cashews cost a pretty penny, if you want to get decent ones. And I rarely settle for substandard food unless I absolutely have to. A lot of these recipes call for cashews.

So I have a few things marked that are not cashew-based that I plan to try. The plan that these recipes are based on makes a ton of sense. Anyone who has a digestive condition that won't subside could benefit from the information in this book.

Ahh...I spy the coconut cake recipe. Because my men hate coconut, this would be ALL FOR ME. Stay tuned for this one. Or maybe the tarte tatin. We have an eenyty-meeny-miney-moe situtation here, folks.

Hi, Sheri! I've just found your blog, so unsure whether you are GF or SCD ... but if GF ... Have you seen GF Goddess's Coconut Carrot Cake recipe? I can no longer have grains myself, so this is off-limits to me now, but before I was restricted I made this and MMMM it is EXQUISITE - highly recommended! :)

Welcome! I am GF :-) I have the recipe you mention printed but haven't tried it. Definitely going to now, though!
