5.0 out of 5 stars Great, fresh ideas for the family kitchen 3 April 2012
By NiferS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Here's the thing about Anni Daulter's The Organic Family Cookbook: it's chock full of new ideas. There are so very many of them, I had trouble choosing things for us to try.

The book is beautiful; the photos, by Alexandria DeFurio, are gorgeous, and the sections are organized to walk you through a day of eating. Anni presents ideas for breakfasts, snacks, lunches, dinners, sides, desserts, and extras. Most of you also know that health and nutrition are big in our home, and Anni delivers here as well. The recipes are generally very healthy, and even the sweeteners used tend to be on the healthier side. Anni does seem to use agave nectar a lot, which I am not a big fan of for many reasons; it is, however, easy enough to substitute honey or maple syrup, and Anni usually notes this.

As far as the recipes themselves, we have loved most everything we've tried. So far, and there are many more in the works, we've tested out:

Natural Cran-Strawberry Red Roll-ups - I liked these, but they are a bit tart. The boys and hubby were not fans, but the texture was great and the flavor was perfect for those of us who like things that pucker you up a bit. Of course, a bit more sweetener would also diminish the pucker factor here.
Cantaloupe and Arugula Salad with Crispy Prosciutto and Spicy Orange Vinaigrette - I LOVED this salad. It's the perfect combination of salty, spicy and sweet. I couldn't stop eating it, and I put the Spicy Orange Vinaigrette dressing on another salad I made with sauteed pineapple over baby arugula with astounding results. If cantaloupe isn't your thing, make the dressing anyway; it's delish!
Zoe's Favorite Baked Parmesan-Crusted Artichokes - I have to confess that I ended up altering this recipe quite a bit; I can't have dairy right now, so I had to skip both the butter and the cheese. I used olive oil instead. Hubby doesn't like the smell of vinegar, so I skipped that as well. Without it, however, I found that the artichokes didn't bake as quickly or evenly. I ended up baking the second trial batch for nearly twice as long with a bit of water in the bottom of the pan; they ended up being wonderful. I will have to make them at lunch one afternoon when Hubby isn't here to be bothered by the smell of baking balsamic.
Anni's Favorite Roasted Tomatoes - This recipe is amazing. It is deceptively simply, with only 4 (5 if you count salt and pepper separately) ingredients, and I cannot stop making them. I've added them to standard family dinners, and I even start them at mid-morning to have them warm to dress up left overs for lunch. Honestly, roasted tomatoes are now a staple around here!

Recipes we can't wait to try include:

Pumpkin Pancakes
Super Green Crispy Kale (which is not like all the other crispy kale recipes I have seen!)
A spinach-pineapple-banana version of the fruit roll ups
Roasted Tomato Garden Tacos (I bought tomatoes for this today! Yay!)
Super Crunch Apple Cranberry Tuna Wrap
Grilled Lemon Caper Halibut
Vine-Roasted Tomato Soup
BBQ Chicken (I really want to try this sauce recipe!)
Asparagus with Tamari and Almond Slices
Luscious Garlic Beet Chips
Fall Pumpkin Spiced Cookies
Red Velvet Carrot Cupcakes
Dana's Raw Vegan Apple Pie

And that's just SOME of what I still want to try. This volume, while still under 200 pages, just has THAT many ideas in it.

Anni's also packs in a lot of fun ideas for green family living in the margins. They include ways to grow food as a family, impact the environment in your kitchen, and cook with your kids. The ideas range from heading out to pick at a farm to baking for charity and supporting local agriculture. I love how Anni presents and embraces the true and complete impact of an organic family kitchen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Green Family Cookbook 3 April 2012
By Jennifer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I actually would have given this book 4.5 stars, but since Amazon won't allow that, I've knocked it down to 4. Overall, I'd highly recommend this cookbook as it's full of lovely images, flavorful recipes and great green tips (for families newer to greener living) to boot.

The best part about this book is that it's written for a family full of different people (go figure). Most cookbooks for families seem to assume everyone likes to eat the same, when we all know that's far from true. This book offers up meals for picky eaters, wild eaters, meat eaters, vegetarians and so on, not just one type of eater. So far we've enjoyed almost all the recipes we've tried and there's a huge focus on finding fresh, organic ingredients to cook with.

I also like that Daulter encourage kids to be adventurous eaters and she encourages parents not to hide food, but make it something kids will want to eat.

There were some cons though. Daulter's books, this one included, tend to include some harder to find, more expensive ingredients. Some of these ingredients are used so minimally, that it's hard for me to say the cost is justified for a green family on a budget. Many of the recipes in this book call for more than a dozen ingredients, and if you're new to healthy cooking, this might overwhelm you. This also is not a great book for gluten-free families.

I normally borrow cookbooks from the library before buying, and I encourage other families to do the same, but in this case, I think if you borrow it, you'll end up buying it eventually, because it's got a high re-use value.

5.0 out of 5 stars real whole food for families 12 Feb 2012
By Amy Bowers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently received a review copy of the cookbook, The Organic Family Cookbook: growing, greening, and cooking together by Anni Daulter. Ironically, the book arrived on a day that I purged many other cookbooks from my kitchen, realizing I rely on them less than ever these days. Organic Family is a little different and will stay on my shelf for a while.

The recipes and concepts Daulter touts are sensible, whole food focused, easy and delicious. I have other whole foods cookbooks that do not appeal to my kids at all - with flavors that just don't jive with 6 year old tastebuds.

I appreciate that Daulter included sections on breakfasts, snacks, deserts and condiments - areas that can usually use some healthy rehab. Homeade fruit roll ups, berry quinoa and red velvet cake (without the red dye!) all temp me into the kitchen.

This book is in no way gluten, dairy or fat free... just healthy, whole food recipes. It would be ideal for a young family or parents who need help learning to cook nourishing food - but do not want to be bogged down with complicated ingredients and recipes.

Essays sprinkled throughout the book support connecting food to children in the family and are great reminders to include kids in the planting of, shopping for and preparing food. My children have grown up in the kitchen and garden and are pretty good eaters for it.

I needed to make a quick lunch and decided to try Daulter's Pasta with Spicy Tomato Caper Sauce. I am not a huge pasta fan (but my kids are), but I really wanted to make the sauce. Every time I cook with fresh tomatoes the sauce seems too juicy - so I was on the lookout for a new way. And I love capers.

This recipe is brilliant because it is made from things you might easily have in your pantry, and after you make it once, you can start customizing. It took under 30 minutes to pull together and was delicious! The tomatoes and lemon made it fresh and the capers added their wonderful floral breath to the dish. A keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and Personal CookBook 4 Feb 2012
By JulieMarie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am loving this cookbook so far! We are vegetarians and dairy free but I am finding that most of the recipes are easily workable with substitutions or omissions. It's a gorgeous book to browse through and I love the personal touches and extra info/inspiration. Can't wait for her newest book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy Recipes 22 Feb 2012
By Books and Chocolate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.
