Cookbook Review: Eat Dairy Free — Alisa Fleming

Today, I’m stepping away from my typical product/restaurant reviews and recipes to focus on an exciting milestone for a long-time food blogger and friend of mine, Alisa Fleming.

Alisa has been known for her online presence at since 2004 and has taken the leap to publish her second cookbook— Eat Dairy Free!

She was generous enough to send me a pre-order copy {and it’s shipping to the public NOW! Click here for a non-affiliate link}.

The imagery from the front cover to the back cover is absolutely exquisite.

Alisa’s second cookbook, Eat Dairy Free, is particularly focused on everyday eating— the type of cooking I’m most likely to do! If it has a long list of ingredients and lots of cookware, I’m out. Luckily, Alisa has everyone covered with simple and delicious meals, snacks, and desserts for the whole family.

The introduction of her cookbook even includes full meal plans and quick snack ideas!

But, my favorite feature of Eat Dairy Free is the first page of each chapter:

Every single recipe in Eat Dairy Free has alternatives for gluten free, egg free, peanut free, and soy free in addition to dairy free.

This full-color masterpiece is sitting prominently on my countertop with a handful of other favorites. In an age of digital search, Alisa has masterfully crafted a cookbook that is not only visually enticing but also suitable for many food restrictions.

Some of the recipes in her cookbook that I cannot wait to try are: Chocolate Banana Split Muffins, Impossible Vegan Quiche, Crispy Italian Polenta Fries, and Korean Beef with Bok Choy! Don’t those sound just delicious? I mean, just look at this adorable muffins Alisa has created!

    My favorite cookbook is The Everyday Ayurveda Cookbook by Kate O'Donnell. Wholesome recipes using simple ingredients. Kate not only teaches how to listen to your body with what you eat and how you eat it, but also cooking tools so that you can create food on your own that follow the same principles. I use it every season and re-read it cover-to-cover every year.

    This might be a little mainstream, but I love my Cooks Illustrated Cookbook. It’s not dairy free, but I’ve gotten great results when substituting dairy-free-substitute products in the recipes.

    My current favorite is Inspiralized: Turn Vegetables into Healthy, Creative, Satisfying Meals by Ali Maffucci. It’s given me some great options for serving veggies in fun meals my kids will eat!
