    Oh man, this is great. I am downloading it as I write. Thank you so much for sharing your creative mind with the world. I love your recipes!

    damn you and your food porn making me spend 13 dollars,, i guess its the least i owe you,,, zucchini hummus is a lifesaver

  3. says

    Hi, I’m ready to buy your book, and I want and idea of what kind of carb counts we’re looking at. Can you tell me the one for the mushroom & goat cheese lasagna (swoon)? Thanks!

  4. says

    Congratulations! I am so excited for you (and for me, because I just purchased it!!)
    I’m hungry! Darn, I wish I had not promised myself that I would stop eating after 8pm. I can’t wait till tomorrow to get cooking!

  5. says

    Just downloaded, I’m so excited!!

    I do have a question though, have you considered converting it to an epub file format? I can’t speak for other devices, but on the iPad it is INFINITELY easier to read things that are saved in the .epub (because you can bookmark, highlight etc). I tried to investigate how easy the conversion process would be and found this neat post which also goes into more detail about what epubs are. And actually if you are ever interested in converting file I’d be more than happy to try my hand at helping!

      Thanks Tort, I’ll look into it and check out your link! I originally planned to have it available in all of the different formats but since pretty much everything can read a pdf it seemed easier to just offer that. But if I convert them I can offer a special link to different formats with the confirmation email after the sale and then people can access them. Thanks for the offer to help, I may take you up on it! :)

    • Alisa says

      I just downloaded your cookbook too. So excited! But I have to agree with tort – epub is a much better way to go. While just about every device can read pdf, the problem with it is that it doesn’t reflow, meaning that how you have it set is how it will show up on every screen. This is not so bad if you’re always looking at a pdf on a computer, but if you should ever want to look at it on a smaller screen, be it a tablet or a phone, if you make it so you can see the entire page, the text will be so small you’ll never be able to read it. If you make it large enough to read, you’re going to have to spend a lot of time dragging the pdf from side to side to be able to see all of it. ePub, on the other hand, will take the text that you have and reflow it to fit the size of the screen you’re viewing it on. The reader can set the font size as big or as small as they’d like, and it’ll just adjust it so it all fits on the screen at that size. Oh, and epubs are also a format that can be read by pretty much every device out there. I’ve actually done a lot of work converting ebooks from one format to another. If you’d like, I can run it through one of my conversion programs and see how I can get it to come out. It may not look exactly like the pdf version, but I think I can get it pretty close.

    Made the Faux-lafel. You’re right, the flavour is out of this world. It’s festival season here in Alberta, and everywhere I go there are falafel stands, selling my favorite street food ever. I made yours for lunch. I must have had a very juicy cauliflower because I had to add extra coconut flour to get to hold together (ended up doubling it). So good with your tahini sauce.

  7. says

    Bought the book today and so excited to try out the recipes. Melissa, the recipe for “Buffalo Balls” seems to have the wrong introductory paragraph (cauliflower).

  8. says

    I’m such a hard-copy person. Is there a chance this will be printed at a future date? Otherwise, I *will* be buying the e-book. It looks wonderful! Congratulations!

    • says

      There are no current plans for it to be printed in hard copy though I plan to shop it around to some agents just in case. To self publish a printed hard copy with all these pictures would be really expensive per book so I doubt that will be happening anytime soon. It would be nice though! :)

  9. says

    Congrats! Looks terrific. Self-publishing is definitely the way to go these days – unless you’re an established author (and even then), publishers expect you to do most of the promotion anyway. And I say this as someone with a ton of experience in the publishing world (I was a book editor for years). Good luck with this.

  10. Abbie says

    Just downloaded it, and I am very excited. I’ve been in a rut lately with my eating, and it’s pretty boring. Looking forward to getting inspired again! Thanks and congrats!

  11. says

    Great job Hon! That was a little like giving birth right? Not that I would know..or presume to tell you how that feels…or that its the same thing…um…never mind. You’re the best! ;)

    • says

      Thanks Mr. Hungry (that’s your new name what do you think??), and you’re right, it kind of WAS like giving birth! Except I didn’t almost squeeze your fingers off when giving “birth” to the book! And you didn’t buy me a new sparkly when it was over. Not yet anyway – hint hint! ;)

  12. Eric says

    Just downloaded the cookbook… Looks terrific! Love the variety and presentation. Just one question that struck me as I was reading through it: Coconut cream? I have cans (or cartons) of coconut milk, which I assume is not what you mean. And I am sure you don’t mean Coco Lopez, which is seriously sweetened. Can you enlighten me?

    Thanks, and congratulations on a job well done.

    – Eric

    • says

      Thanks for purchasing the book Eric! I hope you enjoy the recipes! Coconut cream can be bought in canned, block or powdered form and it’s a more concentrated version of coconut milk – kind of like the difference between whole milk and heavy whipping cream. It’s not easy to find in the regular grocery store, usually you’ll have to go to an Asian, Indian or even Latin American to find it – or you can order it online. Worst case you use regular coconut milk and it just won’t be as thick.

  13. says

    WHAT? WHAT? Dude you did not email me. I am furious.

    Okay, I’m totally not. Lol. I am however dying for a copy cuz you are a rock star.

    So proud of you my friend. Smoochies! xx

  14. lc4good says

    I really love your recipes but could you consider listing total carbs instead of just net carbs? Many of us long term low carbers don’t subscribe to the net carb theory :)

  15. says

    I just purchased my copy of your cookbook and have printed out 4 recipes to try this week! I like to have a copy of the recipe in the kitchen with me and your ebook makes that easy to do. That being said the cookbook doesn’t include the Bangers & Mash recipe which I am making tonight, well not the bangers part of the recipe, and I can not find an easy way to print it. Am I missing something? Is there a print option I’m not seeing? Thank you. btw, since I found the pancake recipe 2 weeks ago I’ve made them 5 times…love them!

    • says

      Hi Dori, sorry about the Bangers and Mash. I had limited space in the book and since the cauliflower recipe is already in it, I figured putting the B&M recipe in there too would be kind of redundant. Unfortunately the blog doesn’t have a print recipe feature though that’s something I’m working on in the new design. In the meantime, while inconvenient, you can cut and paste the text of any recipe from the blog into a word document and print it that way if you really want a printable copy. I’m working on the redesign and relaunch so this won’t be an issue in the future. So happy that you are enjoying the book and recipes!! :)

  16. says

    Congratulations on your website and cookbook Mellissa. You have done a great job and it looks awesome. I also love your food pics they make us hungry. Looking forward to try my hand at cooking like you because I miss your cooking. We also miss you, Matt and Mason and hope to see you soon. Love you, Auntie Annette

  17. Lisa says

    I made your Roasted Chicken w/ Lemon, Olives & Artichoke Hearts tonight for dinner. It was AMAZING! It turned out looking exactly like your picture and tasted just as good as looks! I was so proud of myself! For dessert I made the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream (used raspberries, since that’s what I had on hand). It christened my new ice cream maker, can’t wait to put a dollop on top of a Chocolate Brownie Mug Cake ;)

    • says

      Thanks Lisa! I haven’t made that in ages but it was one of my favorites when I was testing recipes for the book! So glad you liked it and thanks for taking the time to let me know! :)
