    I bought this for myself after browsing through it in a bookstore. I like the combination of healthy (but not so healthy it is boring or gross) recipes and fun ones. My son has food allergies to dairy, egg and peanut so I am always looking for recipes to feed the whole family. This cookbook has recipes that seem hearty but are not cheese heavy. They also have a couple vegan desserts. I made the sunshine bread (no dairy and I substituted applesauce for the eggs) and it was dense and moist and hea I bought this for myself after browsing through it in a bookstore.

    Borrowed from library. Definitely picked up a few winners I'd like to use a lot, especially dinner things. I like that the book calls for common ingredients with plenty of options for substitutes, and that recipes are streamlined for minimal fuss. The Sunshine Bread was extremely good, but the other baking projects were just fine - measurements are not provided in grams which I struggled with. Points off for some of the vapid chatter prefacing the recipes: "Some women collect shoes. I collect bana Borrowed from library.

    I have a recipe from her website for a Paleo Pumpkin Loaf that is SO SO SO GOOD, so when I saw she had a cookbook coming out, I was excited. I was disappointed to find that all of the dessert recipes contain sugar, but there are other good looking recipes in the book, and some of the breakfast foods are made with honey or maple syrup instead of sugar. There are quite a few here that I would try, and based on my experience with the recipe that I got from her website, I expect good things.

    I had just discovered Erin’s blog when I heard the cookbook was coming out! So I ordered 5 of them for myself and several family members and friends. When they arrived I took the time to sit down and read through the entire book (which I think I’ve never done with a cookbook!) It’s truly so much more than a cookbook! The recipes are easy and so good tasting and love the ability to alter ingredients to your liking. Photography is fantastic as well. But my absolute favorite part is the short intro I had just discovered Erin’s blog when I heard the cookbook was coming out! So I ordered 5 of them for myself and several family members and friends. When they arrived I took the time to sit down and read through the entire book (which I think I’ve never done with a cookbook!) It’s truly so much more than a cookbook! The recipes are easy and so good tasting and love the ability to alter ingredients to your liking. Photography is fantastic as well. But my absolute favorite part is the short intro leading into each recipe, including the first meal Erin made for her now husband, stories about cooking with her grandmother and stories about her sweet Dad. This is a book of love of more than just food - but the food is awesome too! Make sure you add this to your cookbook library - I’m so happy I did ❤️

    Officially influenced to buy this one after seeing so many delish recipes on Instagram. I’ve only tried a few myself so far but I have about 30 more post-it’s on this book to try down the line. I love that the pantry staples listed in the beginning are repeatedly used throughout, and many other ingredients may be ones you already have—it makes it so much easier (and fun!) to make new recipes with things you already have!

    I've been following Erin's blog for several years now and she has yet to let me down. Many of her recipes are on constant rotation in our little household (in fact, our all-time favorite blog recipe was one of the very few to make it to the cookbook! Such a pleasant surprise; now I can throw away my stained printed copy!) So the first day I could preorder her first cookbook, I did. Everything about this book is a delight. The pictures are stunning and really drive that "I HAVE to make this!" inst I've been following Erin's blog for several years now and she has yet to let me down. Many of her recipes are on constant rotation in our little household (in fact, our all-time favorite blog recipe was one of the very few to make it to the cookbook! Such a pleasant surprise; now I can throw away my stained printed copy!) So the first day I could preorder her first cookbook, I did. Everything about this book is a delight. The pictures are stunning and really drive that "I HAVE to make this!" instinct. Many recipes include a "Market Swaps" text box giving tips on what ingredients can be swapped out for others (i.e. tofu for chicken, seasonal veggies for ones that may be out of season). She even offers suggestions for how leftovers can be used. Plus there's so much versatility offered for things like simple shredded chicken and a bolognese sauce. Erin clearly cares about making your family meals delicious, healthy, and easy. I was reading through this book last night and realized this may be the first of my MANY cookbooks where I end up trying everything at least once. Truly, if you're only going to buy one cookbook (I don't know how anyone does that but hey, you do you!), "The Well Plated Cookbook" should be that one. I can't imagine being disappointed.

    There are a lot of good things about this cookbook. The pictures are clear, the recipe descriptions have the right mix of educational and personal notes, and the author doesn’t come across as pretentious. She understands what a weeknight meal really means, her recipes are very clearly written, and never does she use ingredients I can’t find. However, this isn’t a five star book from me because I don’t want to purchase it. The recipes were just fine, but I have no craving to make them again.

    Angie Dahl

    I’ve tried 2 dinner recipes from this book already and loved them! The recipes are easy to follow, and Erin is mindful of making meals healthier while not sacrificing flavor and texture. There’s also a handy guide in the back that lists which recipes take 30 min or are one pan, so it’s much easier to do your meal planning during the week.

    I just can't get enough of this gorgeous edition! I love how well-organized this book is. You can easily find sections you need, such as salads, entrees, desserts. The photos are vibrant and beautiful. They just inspire you to try the recipes and create new dishes for your family. I am not a great cook by any means, but this book provides simple, easy to follow instructions, with accessible ingredients you don't have to hunt for at the special stores.

Decadently delightful recipes that you will want to make and not feel too guilty about eating a bit more than a serving. Try the Portobello Philly melts and the No-bake granola bars they are easy to make and even easier to eat!

    This was a beautiful cookbook with great photos and recipes. I liked the conversational style of it. I wished that it had nutritional info included on the recipes as I felt like I would have had to do some adjusting to make each one fit my needs otherwise.

    My absolute favorite cookbook I own. I use this book weekly. I can’t wait to make my way through all of the recipes. I have never made such a delicious cake in all my life; the German chocolate cake is a must. I routinely make the granola for my family. It’s now a staple in my house.

    I have now purchased a total of three cookbooks and have given away two of them as gifts. This collection of recipes to make affordable, healthy and tasty food is a rare treat. The beautiful photography adds to the overall awesomeness!

    Great, healthy tweaks on Midwestern classics. I have bookmarked a few to try. Dishes for all flavors and preferences but all with healthy twists.
