The first recipe I made was the caramelized cauliflower in coconut oil. Absolutely amazing. I followed the recipe exactly as she said and was so glad to have a result that was absolutely perfect.
The second I attempted, was the creamy polenta with veggies. Again, I followed the recipe explicitly and the results were excellent. The flavors and consistency, and clear instructions were perfect.
Third, I made the coconut yogurt and was very surprised at the texture and flavor. If you have not made or tried coconut yogurt, you MUST.
I attempted the creme brulee and it failed, but I was rushed and think I skipped a step or missed an ingredient.
I really loved this book. Natalie not only provides so many recipes for every single course, she also explains the various coconut products and their uses. I.E. coconut amino s, coconut oil, coconut milk, palm sugar etc. It was an incredibly fascinating read.
My one criticism, is that there are not very many pictures accompanying the recipes, something I really appreciate when trying a recipe for the first time. I need a visual reference to know what the end product should look like.
Other than that, this cookbook is gorgeous, and well worth the buy. I was given this book ARC in exchange for my honest review, by blogging for books.

The church.. It's a sea of shipwrecks and broken boards. tattered souls, little pieces of gypsy cloth all sewn together in a patchwork quilt; a beautiful wonderful mess and all that pieces it together is the golden thread that is Jesus. At least that's how it should be. We are not all one in the same we are ebbs and flows we are highs and we are terrible lows we are outsiders and insiders we are a kaleidoscope of stories whose single thread is Jesus Christ. I do not look like you, you do not look like me we are different.. our eyes don't see the same things our hearts don't feel the same things.. our minds don't think the same things,we are different. But He binds us together so that I can see you and you can see me and we can love each other

You don't raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn out to be heroes, even if it's just in your own eyes. ~Walter M. Schirra, Sr.
