Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
As she did in Ice Pop Joy—making popsicles with kale, mascarpone and other atypical ingredients—Daulter concocts some surprisingly kid-friendly treats in this beautifully crafted guide to organic family living. The recipes for every meal, snacks and desserts, and tips for involving kids in organic gardening (“potted parties,” school gardens), food preparation (family cooking days), conservation (repurposing, composting) and community action (herbal tea stands; baking for the homeless), come directly from Daulter’s experience with her four children. Her creativity ranges far, from sneaking vegetables into homemade fruit leathers and mixing leftover sweet potato baby food into a savory flatbread to making a “stone soup” that grows into a feast with each guest’s addition to the pot. Daulter, who studied cooking at the Tassajara Zen Buddhist retreat in Carmel, Calif., takes a spare but deep approach to meals. For example, the addition of chia seeds, wheat germ, flax seeds or hemp seed powder transforms simple dishes into nutritional powerhouses, and the saying of blessings during preparation and at the table unites a family in gratitude. (Oct.)

This cookbook has some great ideas for healthful breakfasts, snacks, sides, lunches and dinners. The kids have already bookmarked their favorites, including pumpkin spiced cookies, butternut squash soup with parmesan crisps, sweet potato fries, pretzels, and a bleu cheese melt.

I was sent a copy of Anni's newly released work of art, the Organic Family cookbook: growing, greening, and cooking together, and I am truly blown away. Not only does the cookbook include the most delicious wholesome recipes, it is a work of art with the photographs by Alexandra DeFurio.

The swap attracted a diverse group of people. Some people teamed up, such as couple, Jason and Corey Cox, who prepared peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and quiche with eggplant and radish greens. Others were more elaborate, including the author of, The Organic Family Cookbook, Anni Daulter.

With Organically Raised - Conscious Cooking for Babies and Toddlers, author Anni Daulter offered families some fresh and organic ways to feed your youngest tots. Then she made hot days more fun and tasty with Ice Pop Joy. Now Daulter's tackled the hardest task of all - feeding the whole family on a daily basis with her new book The Organic Family Cookbook.
Library Journal
Professional cook Daulter (Ice Pop Joy) advocates conscious, ecofriendly living, cooking, and parenting. Her latest cookbook pairs wholesome, family-friendly recipes with sidebars containing simple cooking, gardening, and green-living tips. The book doesn't cater to a specific diet or nutritional style, but the recipes favor vegetables, whole grains, and unrefined sugars. Dishes like Red Velvet Carrot Cupcakes and Veggie Sliders get a nutritional boost from ingredients like coconut oil, whole wheat pastry flour, wheat germ, hemp seed, and agave nectar. Daulter clearly loves cooking with her family, and her passion and candor will resonate with like-minded parents.

    Healthy Recipes

    Clean eating using organic foods can sometimes be intimidating and expensive without resources like one's own garden or year-round farmer's markets available to everyone, but cookbooks like this one by Anni Daulter help. I was glad to discover that none of the recipes were "weird" - something that can be a challenge with cookbooks focusing on "health food" - but actually used ingredients I recognized and could find in my local grocery store even if they aren't locally grown.



    The only recipe I've tried so far was the Dill Dip for fresh veggies and my family really liked it so I'll make it again. Other recipes I want to make are the quinoa with peas and corn, apple cranberry tuna wraps, and the roasted sweet potato and potato fries.



    The photos are great and include not only many of the recipes but also some of Daulter's family, along with stories about how her kids have grown up with healthy, organic foods yet still have developed personal tastes for foods that can present a challenge, and how they have learned to experiment with food to come up with their own recipes.



    Even though this is marketed as a family cookbook with kids in mind, the recipes are for everyone and will appeal to adults as well. Chapters include breakfasts, snacks, lunches, dinners, side dishes, desserts, and a chapter of extras such as condiments, flavored butters, jams, sauces, salsas, and dips. There are a few gluten-free recipes as well.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
