As I have mentioned before, Elana's Pantry was the first recipe blog I found after going grain-free 5 years ago. I took solace in knowing that Elana and her family were able eat so many delicious looking foods without the grains and refined sugars that I was so accustomed to using. Reading her blog and seeing how she helped so many people inspired me to start my own blog, and here we are today! Now, we chat frequently online and spent hours discussing all things blogs, food, and books a few months back in Colorado when I was there for a visit. And as someone who looked up to Elana for so long, I am honored and get such affirmation when she tries my recipes and loves them (my bread and truffles are two of her favorites!).
Elana has a new cookbook, Paleo Cooking, that just released today and I am excited to have had the chance to review it as well as GIVE AWAY A COPY! We made her Bran Muffins and they were fantastic! I even ran out of dates and threw in a ripe banana to help sweeten them up and they still turned out perfectly. She uses a combination of flax and pumpkin seed as the ‘flours' so they are nut-free! She has a talent for creating sophisticated recipes with minimal ingredients and simple preparation so her book will be appealing to all levels of cooks.

Elana has also graciously allowed me to re-print one of her recipes from the book so you can have a chance to try something out and feel more confident in purchasing her book. I wanted to share this Asian Stir-Fry because it has been calling my name ever since I opened the book!
