Review and Giveaway! “The Paleo Chocolate Lover’s Cookbook” by Kelly V. Brozyna

Friday, December 13th, 2013 by Lisa

"The Paleo Chocolate Lover's Cookbook" by Kelly V. Brozna.  The perfect gift for your chocolate-loving friend or family member!  Enter to win a free copy at StephanieODea.com!  Giveaway runs 12/13/13 - 12/20/13.

 Friday, December 20, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Thanks so much for your comments!  I enjoy reading them!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations Laura!

 

 

Happy Friday!  I love that I get to end the week with chocolate!  :-)

Doesn’t the  picture on the cover of this cookbook look enticing?  It sure does!   This is Chocolate Crepe Cake with Coconut Cream.  It’s just one of the many delicious recipes in “The Paleo Chocolate Lover’s Cookbook” by Kelly V. Brozyna.

Kelly Brozyna is well know for her blog The Spunky Coconut, where she shares her wonderful Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free recipes.  She is also the author of “The Spunky Coconut Cookbook”, “The Spunky Coconut Gluten-Free Baking and Desserts” and  “The Spunky Coconut Dairy-Free Ice Cream”.  Kelly has celiac disease, while her daughter is allergic to gluten and has autism.  She has found, like so many others, that her family’s health depends on a very healthy, grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, Paleo diet.

While Kelly doesn’t suggest that the chocolate treats in her book be eaten everyday, she believes that healthy desserts can be an important part of your diet.  After all, chocolate has many health benefits including lowering blood pressure and releasing those feel-good endorphins!

Now, on to the recipes!  Here is a sample of what you will find:

  • Chocolate Swirl Cheese Danish Cake
  • Chocolate Chunk Buttermilk Muffins
  • German Chocolate Cake
  • Macadamia Brownies
  • Lava Cakes
  • Black Forest Cupcakes
  • Birthday Cookie Cake
  • White Chocolate Dipped Macadamia Biscotti
  • No-Bake Chocolate Chip “Peanut Butter” Cookies
  • Salted Caramel Bacon Bark  (Yes.  That’s what I said.)
  • Chocolate Truffles

There are so many more!

The beautiful photos in this book were taken by Kelly herself!

“The Paleo Chocolate Lover’s Cookbook” can be easily purchased at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, at Costco and at local independent bookstores!

Kelly has generously offered to give away a free copy of her book to one very lucky reader!

Monday, November 4, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Thank you for all of your wonderful comments!  This is really a great book and would make a great gift for yourself or someone you love!  Now, on to the giveaway!   The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations Veronica!

Trying to prepare healthy, quick Paleo meals for your family can be daunting.  That’s where Author Tammy Credicott’s new book, “Make Ahead Paleo: Healthy Gluten-, Grain-, & Dairy-Free Recipes Ready When & Where You Are” comes in!

Nobody likes coming home after a busy day at work, only to find that they need to start a meal from scratch in order to get dinner on the table.  I don’t know about you, but some nights, I’d rather just pop a frozen dinner in the microwave!  Unfortunately, that’s not always the healthiest choice.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a meal ready in the fridge or slow-cooker?

From the inside cover of  “Make Ahead Paleo”:

In “Make Ahead Paleo”, you’ll find:

  • Recipes and tips for whipping up freezable meals
  • Inventory sheets to help you keep track of your frozen creations
  • Delicious timesaving recipes for your slowcooker
  • A busy work-week menu with full grocery list
  • Recipes to take on the road
  • One-pan meals you can make in your hotel room
  • Sweet indulgences that freeze and travel well

 

There a lot of things I like about this book.  I like that Tammy shares her tips and tricks for cooking, making meals ahead and more.  I really like the way the book is laid out by Make & Freeze, Low & Slow, On the Go, Room Service, Travel Treats and Week in a Day.  So easy to find what you are looking for!  I also like that there are grocery lists and freezer inventory sheets in the back of the book.  Very user-friendly!

 

MyPixImage (149)

 

Some of the great recipes you can find in “Make Ahead Paleo” are:

  • Chocolate Cinnamon Sweet Potato Waffles
  • Sausage Stuffed Portobellos
  • Fajita Burgers
  • Coq au Vin
  • Bacon & Onion Roast
  • Sweet ‘n’ Smoky Deviled Eggs
  • Best Ever Chicken Strips
  • Br-Egg-Fast Hot Dogs
  • Pumpkin Pie Bars
  • Elvis Muffins
  • No-Bake Sunbutter Bars

I am always looking for a great tasting, easy to make, gluten-free pizza dough mixes.  I had never tried Pamela’s until now.

Pamela’s makes so many wonderful mixes!  I have really liked all of the Pamela’s mixes I have tried so far!

 Instead of using my sample mix to make a pizza, I decided to try the dinner roll recipe on the bag!  Since I don’t have a stand mixer, I decided to use my bread maker to mix the ingredients together.  I added some garlic powder, dried oregano and basil.

 

MyPixImage (63)

 

 

After mixing the dough, I covered it with plastic wrap and let it rise until it was double in size.  Then I rolled the dough into little balls, placed them on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet and baked them!  They came out really good.

MyPixImage (64)

I will definitely be making these again!  Pamela’s Mixes are gluten-free, wheat-free and non-dairy

Review and Giveaway! “Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking” by Cybele Pascal

Wednesday, May 22, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Thank you for all of the wonderful comments!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations Stephanie KL!

Hello Everyone!  I hope your week is going well so far.  It’s half-way over!  ;-)

Today, I am happy today to be re-reviewing “Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking: 30-minute meals without gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and sesame” by Cybele Pascal.  I first reviewed this book back in December.  You can check out my  original review HERE.

When I am asked to re-review a cookbook, I think it’s really nice to be able to make one of the recipes from the book.  So for this review, I decided to make Buffalo Wings with Ranch Dressing.

I have never fried chicken wings, only baked them because I’m totally afraid of hot oil on the stove!  I enlisted my hubby to help me with this part.  It really wasn’t bad.  I would suggest a splatter screen (which I don’t have) to keep the mess down a little.

MyPixImage (33)

I tossed the wings in the sauce.

MyPixImage (34)

I served the wings with celery sticks and because we are not dairy free, blue cheese dressing.  If you are dairy free, there is a great recipe for dairy free ranch dressing!

MyPixImage (35)

These wings turned out great!  I probably will even try them again, now that we have the frying part down! ;-)

You can purchase “Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking” on Amazon.com, and at Barnes & Noble.com and on Cybele’s website store!

I am pleased to be able to offer a free copy of “Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking” to one lucky reader!

Review and Giveaway! Pamela’s Biscuit & Scone Mix

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013 by Lisa

Wednesday, April 17, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Thank you to all who entered!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations Honest Tom!

Lisa Irvine writes at Lisa’s Blogety Blog. You can find her at @Lirvine98 on twitter. If you have an idea for a giveaway, please let her know!

 

Have you tried Pamela’s Biscuit & Scone Mix yet?  I think of all of Pamela’s mixes, this is my very favorite.  Maybe because I *love* scones.  Yes.  I do.

 

I reviewed Pamela’s Biscuit  & Scone Mix back in October HERE.  Back then, I made cranberry-walnut scones.

 

This time around, I considered making something other than scones, but when it came right down to it, I really, really just wanted more SCONES!  :-)

 

As I have said before, I love the simplicity of Pamela’s mixes.  I decided to make cinnamon-raisin scones.  I followed the instructions on the bag, adding sugar, butter, milk and raisins.  I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients.

 

 

I shaped the dough into a round on greased parchment paper and cut into wedges and sprinkled the tops with a little sugar.

 

 

I baked the scones according to the directions.  They came out perfect!  Crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside.  Yummy!!!

 

 

Pamela’s Biscuit and Scone Mix is so easy to use, even for non-bakers.  ANYONE can use these mixes and come out with something great!

 

Pamela’s Mixes are gluten-free, wheat-free and non-dairy.

 

You can purchase Pamela’s Sugar Cookie Mix at many retailers near you or you may order directly from Pamela’s.

 

I am happy to be able to giveaway a free bag of Pamela’s Biscuit and Scone Mix to one lucky winner!

Good luck everyone!
