I purchased this book after much success following the author's blog. The book is not 100% gluten free but is easily convertible for those of you (like me) who must follow a gluten free diet. Recipes are delicious and incorporate healthy, wholesome ingredients. Ingredient combinations may not always be typical, but always satifying. A favourite has been for me the roasted cauliflower capellini. The wholegrain, carrot muffins (though i converted to be gf using the Art of Gluten Free Baking's flour mix), broccoli salad, stuffed squash, brussel sprout salad and roasted tomato soup have also been repeatable favourites (we have tried many more recipes and liked all save the lentil balls). I like that most recipes are quick to prepare, perfect for a hurried weeknight.

Love this book. The recipe for the multigrain carrot date muffins is worth the price of the book alone. Aside from this house favourite, there are many other recipes that were absolutely over the top delicious such as the roasted tomato soup (can't wait to make it again when my garden tomatoes ripen), the pumpkin pecan granola, and the braised white beans and leeks. I really love the simplicity of the photography, the white space on each page, and the ease of the directions. This cookbook has earned its space in our home and look forward to another. I also enjoy recipes from Sara Forte's blog.

I am savouring this cookbook. Both the recipes and the photography. The recipes are very user-friendly with a creative approach to whole foods and fresh ingredients. This cookbook is great for someone who enjoys cooking, but needs a bit of inspiration in the kitchen every now and then. So far, I am enjoying the tahini and soba noodles and am looking forward to trying my hand at the moroccan stuffed squash and the scallops & pomegranate quinoa.
