Cavemom’s Cooking by Anne Hoelz Cookbook Review

Cookbook, Paleo - Cavemoms Cooking, simple paleo meals, Print Version

Sometimes we say we still live in the “Stone Age” but really we’re just joking, or are we?  Did they know something we don’t?

This Cavemom’s Cooking cookbook not only shows and shares some great and healthy recipes, but it also shares about Anne and her son.  Her journey began with her son being born and his health problems.  I have not had to deal with a child having seizures or the extremes that she has, but I have had to deal with kids having some of the other issues.  We have food allergies in our house which I’m sure you’re aware of if you follow this blog.

While we are not Paleo, we do have a gluten free and dairy free lifestyle.  I have experimented with Paleo recipes before and have found some that I love.  I also love some GAPS recipes and of course gluten free recipes.  Her recipes are ones that we can easily cook and enjoy.  They are simple, they are delicious, and they are good for you!  I really like the simple part.  As a homeschooling mom, simple is good.  I know not all of you homeschool, but you probably say as a _____________ mom simple is good.  So whether you’re just a busy mom, a mom of many, a working mom, or not even a mom, sometimes you just want a simple good meal to feed your family or even just yourself.

The print version of this cookbook(what I received) can be purchased at Greenchild Creations Etsy shop.  The shop also sells cloth diapers and soaps as well as other things that would make great gifts!  The print version of the cookbook can be purchased for $22.95 and is 125 pages long.  It has some great photographs in it of the recipes she has fixed.  I made several of these but my pictures don’t even compare!

You can also purchase a digital cookbook of the Cavemom’s Cooking if that is how your prefer your cookbooks.  I love mine in print so that I can mark them up and dog ear them and feel the papers.  I’m a bit old fashioned, but it is just the way I am.  I love the smell of paper and ink.  Books are special to me.

I’m afraid we didn’t try out the recipes with brussel sprouts. . . . . long story but it involved my husband looking at the cookbook and saying if I fixed brussel sprouts he might hire an attorney. Guess he doesn’t like them!  I personally have never had brussel sprouts so guess that is something I will need to try in the future along with turnips.  Yes I was deprived as a child.

Oh yum!  See doesn’t that look wonderful!  Who ever would have thought you didn’t have to eat potatoes to have “mashed potatoes”?  Oh yum yum yum!  And did you know you can add lots of yummy things into these potatoes without them tasting off and the kids will love them!?  Oh yes it’s great!

The cookbook isn’t so much a cookbook but a story.  A story that keeps going.  A story that will continue in a second volume if the rumors are true.  This is more than just about eating good foods and keeping our kids healthy.  This is about how to heal our bodies by what we put in them instead of just covering up the symptoms with medications.  I’m of the lets not use medicine unless necessary viewpoint.  We don’t use a lot of medicine here.  I have a little girl who can’t even have tylenol because it gives her hives. . . . why would that happen you ask?  Because of the red dye they put in the tylenol.  So instead of making her better, it makes her worse.

I hope you like what I’m sharing about Anne Hoelz’s cookbook.  Please take a moment to go visit and check it out yourself.  I think you’ll find that you need a copy too.

Dairy and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I recently received an awesome package from Good Cook with items from their Sweet Creations line.  I love making “sweet creations” and this time our challenge was cookies!   I knew immediately which cookie recipe I had to try first!  These yummy dairy and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies!  They’re the best and perfect for those Christmas cookie exchanges!

In my super awesome package were cookie cutters(watch for those being featured soon), a cookie dropper(an awesome invention!), a brand new high temp spatula with wooden handle and handy conversion chart(ingenious), a handy-dandy flex cookie turner(scratch free!), two aluminum cookie sheets(of the large variety), and a set of three sweet mixing bowls.  For this recipe I used the spatula, cookie scoop, cookie turner, and cookie sheets.

We love cookies in our house and the first cookies I had to make were for my husband.  He loves chocolate chip cookies but I honestly can’t remember the last time I made them for him.  So I’m sharing our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe which is also gluten and dairy free.  You can make it egg free by making a chia egg to replace the eggs as well, but since we’re not egg allergic we don’t do this.  I have friends with an egg allergic little boy so I always test it out to make sure it works before letting you know.  This one recipe gets the A.O.K. for adding the chia egg instead of an egg.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup palm shortening
1 cup firmly packed coconut palm sugar
1/2 cup organic raw cane sugar
3/4 tsp sea salt
2 tsp pure vanilla(I make my own)
2 large eggs or 2 chia eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2-1/2 cup baking flour(gluten-free of course) you can try this blend or this blend they both work well
2 cups of your favorite allergy friendly chocolate chips

I use my kitchenaid to mix these up.  It makes a really good whip and it’s needed to make these turn out right(trust me I’ve messed them up before).

First preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Now you are going to mix the shortening, coconut oil, and two sugars together.

Mix, mix, mix these.  I mean really mix them.  Make sure to mix them until they are light and fluffy to make these cookies work.

While these are mixing in a separate bowl mix up the dry ingredients so that it’s ready to add to the cookies.

Mix in the vanilla.

Mix in the eggs.

Now mix in the flour and dry ingredients.

Using your cookie sheets and cookie scoop dish out the cookie dough.

Bake for 8-9 minutes.

I leave mine on the cookie sheets out of the oven for 1-2 minutes before placing on a cooling rack.

Once cool they’re ready to enjoy.  My husband loves his with fresh cold milk.  I like mine with my coffee.

gluten free dairy free chocolate chip cookies

These are great for those Christmas cookie exchanges or for taking with you to those Christmas get together.  We enjoy them year round here in our house as our whole family can enjoy them!!  Also, my husbands favorite cookie is Chocolate Chip!
