I have said it before and I will say it again, Tammy Credicott is my absolute favorite cookbook author!! Her books are the ones that I recommend to any foodie whether gluten-free or not. When people say they only want one cookbook right now for this new gluten-free lifestyle, I recommend her first book, The Healthy Gluten-Free Life. It is full of delicious recipes that also use clean, wholesome ingredients to promote healthy living to heal your gut. From that first cookbook, I was hooked on Tammy’s warm, inviting style of writing and the beautiful, clean design of her cookbooks.
When it came time to review her second cookbook, Paleo Indulgences, I was not surprised in the least to find that I too, loved it. I was a little worried only because I am not a big sweets person but Tammy of course delivered in providing not only sweet indulgences but savory ones like Cincinnati chili and BBQ beef as well. Seriously, Tammy rocks!
I was so thrilled to review Tammy’s latest installment to her cookbook genius series, Make Ahead Paleo. Over the years, Tammy has found that a Paleo lifestyle is even more beneficial to her and her family’s bodies. The great thing about her way of sharing Paleo eating is that she makes it appealing and delicious to any foodie. I dove right in and found delectable recipe after recipe that made a busy mom like me excited to cook because they didn’t take hours and still delivered amazing creations. When I saw this recipe, Deviled ham and eggs, I was smitten. I love deviled eggs and ham separately so I thought Tammy’s mash up of the two was genius! I was right, this recipe was SO good! I loved the perfect harmony of spices Thyme and Parsley in the recipe. I wouldn’t typically use these in a deviled egg recipe but they worked very well proving again why Tammy is so talented. The recipe was very easy to follow and put together in limited time. I actually had a leftover ham hock from Thanksgiving so just threw that in the crockpot for a few hours then used the leftover meat that fell off for this recipe since it was going to be chopped (or shredded like I did) anyway. My 2 year old also loved these eggs and kept sneaking them off my plate. I actually heard him say while taking one, “I think I’m going to like another one!”. I love when healthy food is so good that my littles want to eat it as well.
In this book, Tammy provides a slew of great information in the beginning which makes it easy for anyone to understand the Paleo lifestyle. Her writing style again makes it not only easy to understand but interesting. As with the other two cookbooks, I was very impressed with Make Ahead Paleo. I would highly recommend this to any foodie out there.
So are you ready to win ALL THREE of Tammy’s autographed cookbooks all for yourself?!
