I couldn’t wait for Elizabeth‘s book to be in my hands. Yes, she is a dear friend, my mentor (more on this on a future post) and an occasional FSC contributor, but also because her newest book, World’s Easiest Paleo Baking (Lake Isle Press, 2016), was sorely needed in the paleo cookbook marketplace.
