Mark Sisson's "Primal Blueprint: Quick & Easy Meals"

By Gerry

I recently bought a copy of Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint: Quick & Easy Meals. I already had Mark's prior cookbook (which was suprisingly good) and I was expecting the Quick & Easy version to be a "dumbing down" of the first. It's not! I can't say enough good things about the new book. Not only is it a visual feast for the eyes, but the recipes are amazing. Mark uses a 3-pictures-per-recipe format to show how the recipe is put together. This is very helpful, especially if you're a more basic cook like me. The photographs are high quality, the layout is awesome, and just looking through the book is a treat. Mark's added an appendix, which is also a great improvement on his first book.

I have about 30-40 cookbooks. Most have given me 3-4 recipes as I pick through the ones that look the most appetizing. After a week with Quick & Easy Meals I'm already 5-6 recipes in and each one is so good that I'll be adding it to my regular cooking routine. And there's a lot more I want to try. I expect that I'll end up trying about 75% of the recipes.

The recipes really are quick and easy to make. But they're also innovative and delicious. I had the Berry Pancake this morning. For lunch I had the Fried Pork Cauliflower Rice. Both were recipes I'd never had before and both were real winners.

Quick & Easy Meals is easily my favorite cookbook now. I'm looking forward to trying as many of the recipes as I can. If you're looking for a great cookbook I can't recommend it enough.
