After reading the primal blueprint, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the cookbook. There are a wide variety of recipes, ranging from meats to veggies, beverages to not-so-guilty desserts. The recipes are easy to follow, many have very few ingredients and the pictures are very helpful. We especially LOVE the cardiff crack (aka tri-tip marinated in red wine and cracked pepper), primal ice cream, green chili burgers, bison chili, peachy chicken salad and the enchiladas (yes, I said enchiladas). There are even recipes to convert the most skeptical eaters!!! Eating primal has helped us both to look and feel better, and the primal blueprint cookbook makes it super easy to enjoy really delicious meals.

Supa Sucky format!

I think it's just the Nook thing. My brother has the hard copy and I was looking forward to having this with me on my iphone. The book's format has been changed. Compared to my iBook files, the Nook is completely lame! You can't zoom in, you can't flip thru the pages quickly, completely bogus. What I wanted to do was to look at the ingredients and then focus on the cooking part. With this lame design doing that is incredibly challenging.
I am exploring the options of converting this thing to a PDF file and importing it into iBook to see if I can do anything with it...

    Tablespoon should be capitalized

    This book, and eating style are excellent. I've been eating this way, without recipes for 1 month and lost 15 lbs and feel great, not hungry or grouchy at all. I highly recommend these books by Sisson, especially the cook books. Read the paperback book first to understand what you are doing. People will come to you and ask what I'm doing to lose weight, because the weight loss is noticeable. If you've read the paperback, you have the answers to all their curious-interested questions, and sometimes condemning-ignorant questions, too. Referring to the "Standard American Diet" as SAD usually gets a laugh. If you are the type of person who doesn't care about they "why" just the "how" then you can get away with the cookbooks & some additional creativity on your part & maybe supplement with an internet search for specific item recipes. But be ready for curious people who knew you before asking you after how you are getting into shape.

    My one complaint about this book is that the print in the cookbook can cause some miserable COOKing and Food Prep FAILS...if you are not paying close attention. In a list of ingredients, these two words - tablespoon and teaspoon look so similar, usually, but the typefaces of these words in these two books, make the tablespoon and teaspoon EXTRA SIMILAR. The typeface does not use a Capital T for Tablespoon. It is very easy to mistakenly add too much or not enough of a particular ingredient. I speak from experience with this mistake, and I am a great reader & good recipe follower. It is the typeface & lack of Capital T, for Tablespoon, that I normally rely on in every other cook book or recipe I own or use. My solution - I used a little pen to put capital "T" on all the tablespoons, turning them into Tablespoon. This way it looks more like we were taught in school & every other recipe on the planet:
    tablespoon
    teaspoon
    teaspoon
    tablespoon
    tablespoon

    vs.

    Tablespoon
    teaspoon
    teaspoon
    Tablespoon
    Tablespoon

    If you have good eyesight and never make this error, then the cookbooks by Sisson are without fail - yum yum yum recipes. Go for it. Highly recommend. If you do have a tendency to be in a kitchen with less than ideal writing, have to look at recipes from farther away that you'd read a book, or are just glancing back and forth with the recipe - then mark the Tablespoons. Else you will have some funky tasting and cooking stuff sometimes.

    Not truely paleo

    The recipes seem okay, but aren't completely paleo. Many recipes include butter (dairy) and tomatoes, peppers, and pepper spices (nightshades). Just not what I was looking for.
