    Incoherent instructions: Book desperately needs an editor, August 3, 2015

    Edited review: I’m revising my rating from 2 stars to 4, despite the problems noted below, because the recipes taste so good. The seasonings are great, and not what I would naturally have combined from my own experience. There is a good balance of flavors and textures — the writer has a wonderful talent with food. I’ll repeat that she very much needs an editor (when adding eggs to hot liquid, for instance, in the egg drop zucchini noodle soup, the author should have told us whether the liquid should be simmering or boiling or whatever, and not just told to “bring to temperature” — what temperature??), but if you have enough experience to fill in for the gaps and to decipher the sometimes incomprehensible directions, the flavors and textures are very, very good.

    original review:

    This book desperately needs an editor to put the recipes in standard format (“dissolve” the butter? Heat the “stove” to 375? boil water in a pan? [is there another way to do it?] “In a saucepan spray with oil”? “Now use the bacon fat and drop the noodles into the water”?????) One recipe has two steps (“put the tomatoes in the oven for 20 minutes,” and then “char the tomatoes” — I suspect that the tomatoes are charred during their time in the oven) — incoherent instructions like this make me hesitate to trust the recipes; will I be able to figure them out? Misspellings abound. There is no index; there *is* a table of contents … but since every last recipe is titled “Spiralizer [this]” and “Spiralizer [that]” and the titles are not alphabetized by second word, it’s an incoherent jumble — good luck finding anything. It’s a poorly designed book with poorly designed pages — your middle schooler could probably have set it up to look nicer and be easier to read and use.

    I *am* going to try to figure out some of these poorly written recipes, and will revise my review if the recipes work and are tasty. At first reading, though, I have little confidence in this book.

    This book is really great! It features multiple different ways to use vegetables – zucchini, sweet and regular potatoes, carrots and more – to create tasty and pretty meals for your family. You also can spiralizer many fruits to create healthy desserts too! Because this book has so many recipes, there is sure to be something for everyone. I discovered a number of things that I have already tried and there are so many more that will become a part of my menu in the future.

    STOLEN RECIPES IN THIS BOOK – SHAMEFUL!! COPYRIGHT INFRINGER!, December 3, 2015
    By 

    This author has stolen DOZENS upon DOZENS of my recipes from my own cookbook and my blog, Inspiralized.com. It is complete copyright infringement and VERY illegal. Do not support this author who is blatantly stealing my recipes – it’s terrible and Amazon should take this book down IMMEDIATELY. Terrible, this person should be absolutely ashamed. I’m disgusted and contacting my Intellectual Property lawyer.
