5.0 out of 5 stars Wide Variety of Amazing Recipes 24 Aug 2011
By Shirley Braden - Published on Amazon.com
I really love this second edition of Kelly's first cookbook! She's added new recipes like her stunning Strawberry Cake and her incredible grain-free Tortilla Wraps. Plus the format of the new edition is more user friendly. I love all the gorgeous color photos, too. This is such a beautiful and informative cookbook that even when I'm not cooking from it, I like picking it up, reading a bit (Kelly's writing is clear and straightforward), and then flipping through the pages and trying to decide what to make next. With "still-to-be-tried" recipes like Nutty Banana Quinoa Bread, Butternut Squash Lasagna, and Custard Pie, that's not always an easy thing to do! Our family's standby favorites are Spinach and Artichoke Quiche, Chicken Meatballs, Chicken Strips (yes, healthy ones!), Almond Muffins, and Flourless Brownies. This second edition is a cookbook for anyone who likes delicious food, but especially for those who eat gluten free, casein free, and refined sugar free!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 22 Jan 2012
By S. Buchanan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beautiful book to look at... not anywhere near as many coconut flour recipes or low-sugar (uses a lot of honey etc) as I would have hoped for... she should call it nut recipes, lots of nut flour this and that a lot more than coconut flour :-( There are some good recipes in here, she has me enthusiastic to make my own nut milks but not the coconut cook book I was hoping for by the title. Also you have to buy dehydrator, ice-cream machine, food processor etc to make the stuff in this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 23 Aug 2011
By Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book when my 3 year old was first diagnosed with a casein intolerance and I cannot recommend it enough. Kelly has come up with some amazing dairy-free alternatives for hard to replicate items like vanilla pudding, whipped topping and my favorite, pumpkin ice cream!

I wholeheartedly recommend this cookbook, not only for those who are on a gluten-free, casein-free, and sugar-free diet, but also for those who simply love delicious food and are bored with the status quo.

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids love this cookbook! 28 Oct 2011
By Cara - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a Mom, I have struggled to help my family with making the switch to gluten free, casein free and sugar free living. Many of the cookbooks and recipes I have tried online have made my kids and well, to be honest, my husband and I miserable. So when we found Kelly's cookbook and began serving ice cream for breakfast..the kids began bragging to all of their friends that maybe this wasn't so bad. And we are now going on three weeks and we haven't tried a recipes we don't like. Seriously. So I'm buying her other cookbook..she obviously has kids in mind when she makes her recipes and my kids (and the adults here too) thank her profusely. And let me tell you...I have picky kiddos. You won't be sorry. Yes, I buy some ingredients on amazon but when you do the subscribe and save, and then consider how much I am saving in doctor's bills...I think in the long run...I'm saving.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Our Son Needed 9 April 2012
By Lexie - Published on Amazon.com
This was the first cookbook I bought upon learning that we had to go strictly gluten-free and casein-free with our son who was diagnosed with mitochondrial dysfunction--a condition in any autistics that makes it far more likely to have deficits in their ability to produce cellular energy than in typically developing children. Following a clean diet high in short and medium chain fatty acids (found in coconut oil, palm oil and ghee) are important for these kids. The Spunky Coconut cookbook embraces both coconut oil and ghee (which when certified is casein-free).

Other prominent ingredients in this cookbook are eggs, stevia (a zero-calorie all-natural sweetener which I LOVE), cashew nuts, legumes, coconut flour, and almond flour. When the author describes the book/recipes as "sugar-free," I believe she is meaning cane sugar-free. Honey (and alternatively agave) and coconut sugar are used in some of the recipes--albeit very sparingly--and often combined with stevia to reduce the measures of these sweeteners considerably.

I've read reviews here of folks being disappointed that the bulk of the recipes are not coconut based. To the author's defense, "The Spunky Coconut" is the name of the author's blog. The title is not "The Coconut Cookbook." Many of the baked goods do contain some coconut flour and as I mentioned before, coconut oil is widely used. But the book name is referring to the author's blog and is not a description of all the recipes contained therein.

There is a great array of recipes in this book. From granola to quiche to soup to bbq beans. The book goes real light on the grains (brown rice flour) and relies more on nutrient-dense nuts, seeds and legumes.

There are pictures of many of the recipes which helps you see what the end result will look like (I like that). The ingredients and directions are laid out in a step-by-step format which I have no problem with. I tend to cook that way anyway. I'm not one to get all my ingredients lined up in a row and then start in on the directions. Rather, I grab what I need when I need it, measure it out and put it away.

Ms. Brozyna is an innovator. Out of necessity she has developed a unique approach to cooking whole and healthy foods that taste GREAT! I highly recommend adding it to your special diet library. Her second book, The Spunky Coconut Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts, is great, too!
