I have a bit of a cookbook addition. So when my girlfriends were raving about The Whole Smiths Good Food cookbook, I had high expectations. I spent a week cooking lots of different recipes from it, I wanted to be sure that I could give my authentic opinion on it based on all the content, not just the pretty pictures.
I related to a lot of things in this book. I feel like the author Michelle and I could be best friends (except for the Dave Matthews thing). We share the same food philosophies and I love her approach to social media. Girl keeps it real but still produces great content. (See, it can be done!)

Full Cookbook Review

I tried to vary all of the dishes that I tried, I even branched out and made pork loin. I’m really not a fan of pork loin but this one was pretty good. I smothered mine in the caramelized onion. I’ll eat basically anything with caramelized onion on it. The sweet potato hash, ranch chicken potatoes and sweet potato hash were all winners in our house.
This is a great cookbook if you are interested or doing or have done a Whole 30 round. I loved my experience with Whole 30 and have a lot of resources on this site if you need motivation, meal plans or a list of all the must have gadgets to be successful with the program. That’s not to say that this is a Whole 30 only cookbook because there are a lot of non-compliant recipes in here and ones that you can adapt either way.
Bottom line – this cookbook is worth every penny. It’s beautiful and has great content. What more can you ask for?
