My Favorite Cookbooks for the Paleo Lifestyle 2015 – GIVEAWAY!

best cookbooks of 2015

The days of the “paleo diet” being all about quick weight loss are long over and this collection of my favorite paleo cookbooks for 2015 reflect that! Today, people all over the world have discovered that eating more nutrient dense real foods while limiting the amount of inflammatory and processed foods makes them healthier, helps them perform better, is better for the environment, and just tastes darn good. As I did last year, I have been keeping notes all year long as new cookbooks have been released and am now sharing with you my 10 favorites. This is by no means a comprehensive list and I am not going to try to rank them, but am instead presenting them in the chronological order in which they hit the market.

Ready Set AIP - Your on ramp to the Autoimmune Protocol lifestyle

Now, on to the books…

Best Paleo Cookbooks of 2015

The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book: 500 Easy Recipes for Every Machine, Both Stovetop and Electric by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough (Clarkson Potter, February 2015)

OK, this one isn’t a “paleo” cookbook but it had to go on my favorite list for 2015 because this was the year that I really fell in love with the Instant Pot, an electric multi-function cooker that works as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, and more. I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books, but would have gladly paid for it myself, and have in fact sent it as a gift to several other new Instant Pot devotees! Every one of the recipes I have tried in this book have turned out great and the principles I have learned are allowing me to create my own pressure cooker recipes. Obviously, not all of the recipes are paleo-friendly but I guarantee you will still find plenty to cook even if you ignore the chapters on legumes and grains.

He Won’t Know It’s Paleo: 100+ Autoimmune Protocol recipes to create with love and share with pride by Bre’anna Emmitt (February, 2015)

Bre’anna specializes in comfort foods that everyone will enjoy eating, whether they follow a paleo diet or the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP) or neither! The name of her cookbook and blog of the same name comes from the story that she was able to feed her husband paleo foods for a full 6 months without him catching on. This is a comprehensive cookbook with a recipe for pretty much any condiment, treat, or dish you might be missing when you go on AIP. That’s impressive work because not only does AIP follow standard paleo guidelines of eschewing grains, dairy, legumes, and refined sugar, it also puts nuts, seeds, eggs, and nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, etc.) off limits until one has healed enough to begin reintroductions.

Nourish: The Paleo Healing Cookbook: Easy Yet Flavorful Recipes that Fight Autoimmune Illnesses by Rachael Bryant (Page Street Publishing, March 2015)

I’ve been a fan of Rachael’s cleverly named blog, Meatified, for a long time, so I knew that this cookbook would be packed with deliciousness and gorgeous photography and it has not disappointed. Every single one of the over 120 recipes are free of eggs, nuts, seeds, nightshades, and seed spices but they do not skimp on taste in the least. Rachael has a knack for capturing the essence of old favorites while reinventing them into dishes that are even better than their inspiration. Example #1 comes from the “Bring on Breakfast!” section of the book in the form of Sausage Gravy “Benedict” in Portobello Mushroom Caps, a play on eggs Benedict and gravy and biscuits. Recipes range from traditional comfort foods like Chicken Fried Steak to more exotic flavors like a Hot & Sour Soup with Shrimp Dumplings and Seaweed. Quite simply, this is just good food!

My Paleo Patisserie: An Artisan Approach to Grain Free Baking by Jeni Hulet (Victory Belt Publishing, April 2015)

I drool over this cookbook even more than I cook from it, because the photography is incredible! If you have ambitions of making delicious grain free desserts, then you need this book from Jeni Hulet, who blogs as The Urban Poser. This book is unlike any other paleo or dessert cookbook though because instead of just presenting recipes, it presents templates and countless ways to create something new and personalized, hence the name “my” in the title! Each section introduces and adapts the fundamental elements and techniques of traditional patisserie baking for the grain-free baker, drawing upon Jeni’s two decades of experience in traditional and modern patisserie-baking.

One-Pot Paleo: Simple to Make, Delicious to Eat and Gluten-free to Boot by Jenny Castaneda (Page Street Publishing, May 2015)

This book features the international flavors Jenny has become known for via her popular blog Paleo Foodie Kitchen but has streamlined all of them so that you can make them in a single cooking vessel. Jenny is highly influenced by the cooking style of her Filipino heritage, which is truly a melting pot of flavors from Spanish, American, and Asian cultures. She’s also an avid world traveler and you see evidence of that all over this cookbook. But you don’t need any special cooking skills to make any of these dishes, so it would also be a great gift for people who are new to cooking from scratch in general. The flavors and dishes have such universal appeal, so this would also be a great cookbook for people who are not necessarily interesting in totally “going paleo” or for inspiration when it comes to making dishes to serve mixed groups, such as a non-paleo potluck or family gathering.

Paleo Takeout: Restaurant Favorites Without the Junk by Russ Crandall (Victory Belt Publishing, June 2015)

After having the opportunity to be part of the early recipe testing for this book, I knew that Russ Crandall – also known as The Domestic Man – was working on something incredible. The finished product did not disappoint! It includes over 200 paleo-friendly recipes that recreate all your favorite takeout dishes and some you probably don’t even know yet are your favorites. The book is divided into four major sections and dishes run the gamut of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Filipino, American, Italian, Mexican, and Greek. While not quite as convenient as picking up the phone, if you choose one of the “fridge to face in 30 minutes” dishes or reheat one of the “make-ahead deliciousness” dishes  you could batch cook and stash in your freezer, you will likely be chowing down in less time than the whole takeout process. And it will be a heck of a lot healthier and in my opinion, more delicious too!

Down South Paleo: Delectable Southern Recipes Adapted for Gluten-free, Paleo Eaters by Jennifer Robins (Page Street Publishing, August 2015)

Jennifer, who blogs at predominantly paleo, is a fourth-generation Texan and her debut print book features more than 100 recipes for comforting family favorites from south of the Mason-Dixon line, including soul food, Tex-Mex, Cajun and creole, and Gulf seafood-inspired dishes – all of them free of grains, dairy, soy, refined sugar, and other junky ingredients. The book is also infused with Jennifer’s charm and wit, evidenced by the cheeky chapter titles such as “When the Rooster Crows” for breakfast dishes, “Roughage” for salads, and “Wet Your Whistle” for cold and hot beverages. Every single recipe in this book is gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and soy free and  additional allergen information is provided in the headnotes to each recipe, so if you have sensitivities or allergies to nuts, eggs, or nightshades (or all three), you will be able to easily see which recipes will work for you.

The Food Lab: Better Home Cooking Through Science by Kenji Lopez-Alt (W. W. Norton & Company, September 2015)

Even though I didn’t particularly love science when I was a student, I find the science behind cooking absolutely fascinating, and since I’ve started blogging and developing my own recipes, I have found it extremely helpful to understand more about the whys behind what works and what doesn’t. This book is another that isn’t strictly paleo and there are sections that I mostly ignore, but still recommend it to anyone who shares my food nerd-dom. The massive book delves into the interactions between heat, energy, and molecules that create great food, and shows that often methods based on conventional wisdom actually don’t work that well. If you like photographs you’ll love this book as it has over 1,000 full-color images!

Growing Tomorrow: A Farm-to-Table Journey in Photos and Recipes: Behind the Scenes with 18 Extraordinary Sustainable Farmers Who Are Changing the Way We Eat by Forrest Pritchard and Molly McPeterson (The Experiment, October 2015)

This is another book that doesn’t technically fit the list because not only is it not-strictly-paleo but it isn’t just a cookbook either. Rather, it is the story of 18 farmers across the country who are growing sustainable food for their local communities, as told by fellow organic farmer Forrest Pritchard and photographed by Molly McPeterson. Between the two of them, the prose and the photographs truly pay homage to these heroes of food grown the way it should be. The 50 recipes are just the (very delicious) icing on the cake!

The Healing Kitchen: 175+ Quick & Easy Paleo Recipes to Help You Thrive by Alaena Haber and Sarah Ballantyne (Victory Belt Publishing, December 2015)

This new AIP-friendly book doesn’t release until December 15 but I was fortunate to get an advance review copy. Every recipe I tried was delicious and I suspect will become a part of my regular rotation, and I have many more bookmarked to try in the coming weeks and months. These recipes definitely pass the “taste” test, which is my number one criteria for a cookbook to stay in my collection (as much as I love them, space is limited!). The recipes also pass the “easy” test, which is why I’m not only excited to have this book for myself, but why I’m happily recommending it to all my readers, whether you are a kitchen newbie or an experienced cook. One of my favorite features of the recipes is that all of them include tips for storage and when relevant, reheating as well. This is awesome, especially since eating paleo means giving up convenience foods and batch cooking and relying on leftovers helps fill that void for busy people.

Post your comment below… Be sure to tell me which cookbook you want to win and WHY! Then, make sure you verify your entry with the Rafflecopter widget above. You must do both in order to win. Good luck!

Sorry if this is a duplicate…technology troubles!! I would love Nourish…been eyeing that one for a while! But I’d also love the Pressure Cooker one if I get my Christmas gift wish of an Instant Pot!!

I would love to win “The food lab”. After reviewing the pictures on Amazon the were supplied about the book, I was surprised I never noticed it before. The book is full of colorful pages, step by step instruction for the novice cook. Recipes look like they can be done with ingredients I already have in my home. These are just a few reasons why I would love to win this book. I own “one pot paleo”, and “paleo takeout” which are both excellent books to add to anyones paleo cookbook collection.

I would love to win the Healing Kitchen the most, although all of those books look great. I need easy recipes that will appeal to my 13 year old and I think this would be the best option.

I would love to win the He Won’t Know It’s Paleo cookbook. This book has been on my Amazon wish list since its release.

So many great books – it’s hard to choose, but I would probably say Paleo Takeout because the recipes and pictures look really great, and I love spicy, flavorful food!

I would love to win the Great Big Pressure Cooker Cookbook because both my parents and I just bought one this year and would love to learn more recipes for us to cook!

I’d love to win Paleo Takeout because I’ve made some successful paleo reintroductions and I’m ready to experiment with those gray area foods that Russ uses so well!

I am such a fan of Jennifer’s and have had my eye on Down South Paleo for some time. My fiance is transitioning to a paleo lifestyle, and I think these recipes would be a great resource to help him still enjoy his comfort foods in a healthy way.

I would love to win He won’t Know It’s Paleo. I cook for my family of 5. All of them picky. I would love this resource of healthy comfort foods.

I would love to win Patisserie. I have a sweet tooth that needs to find some paleo treats that it has been missing since my ulcerative colitis diagnosis. I know how to make some things, but they usually turn out pretty ugly. It’d be nice to be able to make something I could actually serve at dinner! And it would be great to use with our new kitchen aid mixer!!

I’d love to win “The Healing Kitchen” because I love the recipes by these fantastic ladies and I know that this book is going to be so helpful in healing my autoimmune conditions. We all need inspiration to keep going and to find different recipes to make our diet as interesting and nutritional as possible.

I would love The Healing Kitchen. it is one I have been thinking about, it looks great. Although I am sure my family would love Paleo Takeout so I will definitely have to check that one out at the book store for down the road as a treat for me. I love new cookbooks!

Thanks for the chance.

I would LOVE the Paleo Takeout because I love Chinese takeout and I would love to see how he makes them Paleo. He is amazing! It all looks so yummy!

I would like to win My Paleo Patisserie – I would love to learn how to make the sophisticated desserts in this book in a gluten free/paleo form since I haven’t had many of those pastries since I was diagnosed with celiac. I would love to share them with my family 🙂

Thank you so much for doing this! I love your blog, it’s such an inspiration to me!!

I would love to win “the healing kitchen” and other AIP books for my mother, who has an autoimmune disorder. I’m trying to convince her to try paleo!!

I would love to have The Food Lab: Better Home Cooking Through Science book. Knowing the science behind cooking would be fascinating and helpful.

I’d love to win One Pot Paleo because the recipes would be easy and convenient to make without having a ton of dishes!!

Omgosh I’d take all and any! Lol The Healing Kitchen will have to be my pick I think. I’m AIP and am looking to cook more meals that my family will eat aswell. Save me some work lol. This book will surely inspire me and help me transform my families intake

Growing Tomorrow, absolutely! I am inspired by the many farmers and folks who dedicate their lives to sustainable food, so this would be fantastic. Thanks!

I would love to win all of these but if i had to pick on, it would be the new book “The Healing Kitchen” by Sarah Ballantyne and Alaena Haber. The reason for this choice is that part of our websites aim is to provide up to date and relevant information to the AIP community in Australia, and knowing that Sarah is the AIP guru, and I already own her two other books, this would complete my collection and ensure I have all the information and reference to keep Australian AIP’s informed.
Thank you for the opportunity.

oh, my! what a great collection! so hard, although I have 2 (or will SOON with my pre-order). I finally got the instant pot, so I would really love the pressure cooker book. (have really wanted Bre’anna’s book though!) thanks so much for a chance!

I would love to win Paleo takeout so that we can have great food at home without going out. My current favorite Paleo cookbook is falling apart from too much use so it would be great to try something new.

While I think all the cookbooks listed are fantastic, I would love to have The Healing Kitchen. This is my first year cooking for myself (I’m a college student) after realizing how hard it was to eat paleo in a cafeteria – I couldn’t even tell what animal some of the meats came from! Anyways, I’ve been using Pinterest to plan meals, but feel like a cookbook would be a much better way to do it. I’ve tried several of the Paleo Mom’s recipes (including fish and chips – they are to die for), so I really trust them and with the “1-week meal plans”, I think it could really be an asset to me. I think it would also help me learn more about the paleo diet (there always seems to be something I don’t know about it). Finally, I love that the focus is on healing instead of simply tasting delicious or being like “normal food”. It goes deeper than that – and what a lovely attitude to cook with. 🙂

So many good cookbooks to choose from! I preordered the Healing Kitchen and I believe I’m getting He Won’t Know It’s Paleo for Christmas and already enjoy my digital copy. Also having won Nourish in a similar giveaway on Instagram when it released I won’t be needing it, although it’s great. That all being said I think my top pick would be the Pressure Cooker one or My Paleo Patisserie. I haven’t yet found my stride with my InstaPot or Paleo baking and I would like to do both.

Would love the He Won’t Know It’s Paleo. I would love to secretly test some new amazing recipes on my husband. He’s not in to Paleo at all but some of my “new” recipes during the Whole30 are some of his very favorite!

I would love One Pot Paleo. I’ve been considering buying it for some time but just can’t spend the money. I just lost my job and have a family, and I think being able to use some of those recipes would be very helpful.

It’s hard to pick just one I would want this has been a hard journey. I would love to have My Paleo Patisserie: An Artisan Approach to Grain Free Baking by Jeni Hulet. I am recovering from a tramtic brain injury along with 4 autoimmune disorders from 2 car accidents & it’s hard to reinvent how to know how to bake with these strange ingredients & on a tight budget. Being a single mom with 2 kids that have celiacs as well it would be nice to just make 1 thing we all could enjoy as a treat. The reviews are really encouraging with step by step & photos. Looks like a must have. I would have to pick Nourish as a 2nd runner up for making healthy healing meals.

I would love to have all of these books, however my top three (did you say just one – no that can’t be), are the One Pot Paleo because I have an Instant Pot on my Christmas wish list, He Won’t Know it’s Paleo because I made her coconut cream pie at Thanksgiving and it was awesome, and the My Paleo Patisserie because having a template is very appealing to me so I don’t have to search for an exact recipe for something.

I was just diagnosed with an autoimmune condition with a possible other one as well. I would chose Healing Kitchen since it have clicked to read the description every day for the last week!

I’d like to read the Healing Kitchen, I’m always looking for easy to prepare meals with fresh ingredients. I get stuck in meal ruts and know my family is too nice to complain, haha!

I am most interested in “He Won’t Know It’s Paleo”. We recently realized that my seven year old son needs aPaleo type eating-style. However, he is very picky, and although I have been eating Paleo myself for a couple years, I am in need of recipes that my children will embrace. This looks like just the cookbook!

*Note, I cannot see my comment, as it is typing white. Sorry for any misspellings or grammatical errors!

I would love, love, love My Paleo Patisserie! I adore baking and was learning how to make some special items gluten free before I had to go Paleo for health reasons. To be able to continue my baking adventure grain free would be phenomenal

I would love the patisserie book. Have been gluten and dairy free since 1987. Have the healing kitchen on order. Also numerous other Paleo books. But the Patisserie looks sublime. I love this style of cooking but it hasn’t been in my repertoire for years. Looking inside at the huge recipe range has been inspirational. And yes, I been almost aip compliant for 3 years. Thank you for this opportunity.

I would love “He Won’t Know it’s Paleo. I am starting to replace my extensive non-paleo cookbook collection with Paleo choices. I started Paleo over a year ago and just recently seem to need a wider variety of options. It is not that I am bored as I am happy with what I make, just need a change. Thanks for opportunity to win.

So many awesome choices, it’s hard to pick just one! I lean towards He Won’t Know it’s Paleo because I know Bre’anna creates amazing recipes, but I think the Great Big Pressure Cooker book would be a better resource since I am still learning how to best use my Instant Pot.

The Healing Kitchen looks spectacular! The reviews are amazing and would love to re-create the recipes for myself and the family

I would like Paleo Takeout because Russ had provided an addendum as to how many of the recipes can be converted to AIP.

I have dreamed of the He Wont Know It’s Paleo book for a while. The reason is so my hubby won’t know it’s paleo and our marriage can remain (mostly) harmonious! Thank you so much for this giveaway!

Not easy to choose a favourite book, they all seem very interesting. To choose one, I would say” he won’t know it’s paleo “. I love the idea that home recipes can be adapted and the family wouldn’t realize it. It would I great source of inspiration to find healthier yet tasty recipes to feed my family.

I’d love to have Russ new cookbook Paleo Takeout. I’ve got his previous cookbook and it is amazing. Every recipe I tried was a success. This cookbook looks like fun especially with convincing the rest of my family to go Paleo.

That is a great choice! We absolutely love both of his books and cook from them all the time. Plus, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Russ and he is just the nicest guy!

Tough choice! I’d say One Pot Paleo because dishes are the most time-consuming and frustrating part of my meal prep. Awesome giveaway!! 🙂

This is so awesome- I would love to read He won’t Know It’s Paleo. This sounds fantastic and would teach me a thing or two since I am so very picky.

I would love to have The Healing Kitchen: 175+ Quick & Easy Paleo Recipes to Help You Thrive …I’ve been reading about it and would enjoy learning more about maintaining health through food choices.

I would love the One-Pot Paleo: Simple to Make, Delicious to Eat and Gluten-free to Boot becasue like the idea of one pot easy cooking and I think its something my family would embrace. I already like one pot meals and this would be awesome to have.

I’d love to win The Healing Kitchen: 175+ Quick & Easy Paleo Recipes to Help You Thrive because I love the fact that the recipes are organized into how long they take to make and that aip treats are included.

The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book because I love using my pressure cooker, and am always looking for good recipes for it.

I would love to have The Healing Kitchen. I am determined to overhaul my family’s diet and with our busy schedules I need tasty and quick recipes. Based on your notes and the reviews on Amazon, this book could be the game changer we need to get started!

I do love books!
The one that interests me most now is The Food Lab.
Food science fascinates me, and the author’s personal introduction is fascinating.
Thank you!

I’d love to win The Healing Kitchen. That’s a crazy-good selection of books, but I can’t go past the original mistress of AIP , the Paleo Mom.

Hi! Well, I would love to win either, My Paleo Patisserie or The Healing Kitchen! The Urban Poser is an amazing baker and I have been wanting this book for a loooong time, but I love Sarah Ballyntine and her work! It’s so hard to choose. I’ll let you pick for me…

Ahhh I can’t decide between Nourish and Healing Kitchen!!! They both look so good but I think I’ll go with The Healing Kitchen! I want the other ones too but I follow aip still and already have the ebook of He Won’t Know It’s Paleo. Thanks!!!

I would honestly love a copy of any of these books, but I think out of the bunch (and being that I already have a copy of The Healing Kitchen), I’d most like My Paleo Patisserie. I so rarely eat treats, I’d like to “do it right” when I do indulge. 🙂

I would love to have all of these cookbooks. Many have been on my wish list, like Paleo Takeout, He Won’t Know it’s Paleo (even though I have the eBook), Nourish and the Healing Kitchen. I’m 1.5 years into going AIP. I am rethinking some of my reintroductions because I’m not feeling as well as I was, so some new and diverse recipes for AIP would be so helpful. Nourish and The Healing Kitchen would be my top choices, but if I had to choose one it would be the Healing Kitchen. I have Sarah Ballentyne’s other books and I’m excited to check out this new book.

Would love the Great Big Pressure Cooker book! Just received a new instant pot and am hungry for creative recipes and ways to use it!

I would love the big pressure cooker book! I bought a pressure cooker last year and have only used it for a few things, because I am at a loss for what to do with it. I am sure this book would help me get it figured out!

I would like to win The Paleo Patisserie because of all the desserts I will still be able to enjoy and share and still be paleo. Thank you for the giveaway.

I’m very interested in Paleo Patisserie. I would love to be able to make lovely desserts than even my non-Paleo-eating friends and family would be wowed by. Thanks!

would love the pressure cooking book! got an instant pot for Christmas… always looking for more ideas. Healing Kitchen would be wonderful too. Have Paleo Mom’s AIP book, but recipes are always hopeful for that challenge.

I would love One-Pot Paleo: Simple to Make, Delicious to Eat and Gluten-free to Boot by Jenny Castaneda – I have a lot of family members, and now a co-worker, who are gluten-free. I’d love to be able to cook meals everyone will love, and I love the idea of an easy one-pot meal that won’t make me feel overly bloated and uncomfortable!

I want the one-pot paleo because I’m looking to simplify my life as much as possible in 2016 AND find more joy in cooking the way I should for me and my family. I think this book is definitely for me then. 😉

Pick one, really hard to do. They are all great bloggers and cooks! I would go with He doesn’t know it’s Paleo, because I have a husband and children who aren’t on board with how I want to change their lives, and help them change their health!

I would like Down South Paleo because I miss comfort foods and think that it would be a fantastic resource to be able to have them again in a way that won’t make me ill.

Paleo Takeout would be my pick. I love those flavors and know when I go to most restaurants that serve that kind of food it is alot of sugar ;(

I would love to win Healing Kitchen. I understand it has some time friendly recipes, which would make AIP a little easier. I hope I’m lucky!

I am fortunate enough to already have a number of these, but one that I haven’t gotten is One-Pot Paleo, and it’s one that I’ve had on my Amazon Wish List for awhile. My husband would LOVE to have less dishes to clean up after I cook!

I would love to win the “Paleo Takeout: Restaurant Favorites Without the Junk”. When eating out, I have a very difficult time making the right Paleo choices. This book would really provide me with much needed insight.

I would love to win “The Healing Kitchen” to give to my mother who is starting an AIP diet in the new year.

Love your reviews of these books. I have had my eye on The Healing Kitchen for months now, so that is certainly my top choice. The few recipes I’ve seen shared by bloggers from The Healing Kitchen have all been SOOO yummy, I think this book will be a wonderful addition to my library. 🙂

Happy New Year!

I’d love to win He Won’t Know It’s Paleo. I’ve been searching for good AIP books, and this one comes highly recommended.

I would love to win the Paleo Takeout cookbook! I’m an asian with a severe soy allergy, while also following AIP. It would be so wonderful to recreate the comfort food I’ve been missing so badly. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

I would love to win He Won’t Know It’s Paleo! As a newlywed with Crohn’s disease, the description of this book really resonates with me. Finding flavorful AIP recipes to satisfy my husbands “all American” (that’s a nice way of putting it!) diet is a dream come true!

I would love to win the one pot paleo cookbook. I am not the best cook and am very intimidated by long and complicated recipes. I’ve been dabbling in easy paleo recipes trying to change my bad eating habits. I am also pregnant with our first child and now it is extremely important for me to be eating better. This sounds like the perfect first cookbook for me!

I would love to have Nourishing Kitchen. I am always looking for new ideas for meals that can easily be made on a week night. Thank you for doing this- I truly enjoy following you!

I just got an instant pot for Christmas so I would love the big book of pressure cooking recipes! The instant pot still scares me so I would love to have some guidance during my journey of eating for healing!

So many great books! It was very hard for me to choose just one, and obviously you get it since you’re off and $25 Amazon gift card – awesome, but I think I’d have to say Paleo Takeout. Hello! Healthy takeout?! Sometimes we just want to be a little sinful and not regret it.

I would love to win He Won’t Know It’s Paleo. I have had my eye on it for a while, and it was going to be my birthday or Christmas present… But then we decided to get a kitty (also good!) and the cost of getting all that set up is my present this year. Anyway, I love how simple and tasty Bre’ana’s recipes are. I’ve loved every one I’ve tried!

I would love The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book: 500 Easy Recipes for Every Machine, Both Stovetop and Electric by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough. I also got the Instant Pot for Christmas & I have been using my mom’s very old Presto since she passed it on to me. Besides, Bruce makes wonderful ice cream too, so how can you go wrong!
