FAQ’s

 

Here are answers to some questions you might have:

Do I need to be an experienced cook to be able to make these recipes?

No, you don’t need to be experienced at cooking. This book isn’t geared toward complete beginners, and it’s not a book about how to cook, so it assumes that you’re familiar with the basics of cooking, but these recipes are simple and don’t require any advanced cooking techniques. 

Do I need any special equipment to make these recipes?

No, you don’t need any special equipment at all. All you’ll need is just the basic tools like an oven, mixing bowl, mixing spoon, measuring cups, and baking pans. 

Will this cookbook work for me if I’m on a special diet (gluten-free, paleo, vegetarian, GAPS, etc.)?

If you’re following any special diet or restricting any ingredients or food groups, this might not be the best cookbook for you. 

​The recipes in this book use a variety of ingredients, including grains, meat, dairy, and eggs (along with fruits and vegetables.) Most of the recipes do not use any nuts, though.

Will these recipes take a lot of time to prepare?

Some of these recipes take more time than others. For most of them, the extra time is usually for things like waiting for bread to rise, and the amount of active time you spend actually working in the kitchen is fairly minimal. 

These recipes do involve cooking from scratch, though, so if you’re used to using a lot of mixes and pre-made foods, then these recipes will take more time than you’re probably used to spending in the kitchen.​
