Congrats, I just got mine a few days ago as well..bookmarked and have read it all the way through..it is now known as my bible..
does she use the dehydrator alot in her recipes. I'm asking cause I don't have one so I'm not sure if buying the book would be worth it for me?

There are all kinds of recipes in it that don't use the dehydrator :) . But beyond that, it's just been so incredibly helpful with my raw endeavors, I would have bought it again in a heartbeat even if I didn't have my D (but I'm glad I have both :D)

I agree with theRawPilgrim..There are lots of recipes that doesn't require a dehydrator..and all the info in her book is invaluable.. I highly recommend it.

I love this book! I read mine in an entire afternoon, but I like that idea about the highlighter and bookmarks. :) I find myself always skimming through it for reference, so it would probably help if I mark off key points that tend to help me along. :)

Just got my book today, and I am so excited about preparing the recipes. I also ordered my Excalibur Dehydrator today! I have a small round dehydrator that I have been using, but have wanted the Excalibur for a while. We plant a garden each summer, so i will be dehydrating a lot of the veggies to use in the winter months, and I love making the breads and crackers. JOY!:D

oh thank you everyone for not making fun of the way I spelled alissa. :rolleyes:
I read the whole thing and I can't wait to try the enchiladas especially! There are lots of recipes I want to try but those are calling my name!!!
thanks for the tips!

I actually find that the recipes from her book I've used the most over the years are the non-dehydrator ones. Her marinara sauce (still my fave over the others I have tried), almost-tuna and mock salmon pate (great in nori rolls!!) and especially the avocado chutney (SO delicious) come to mind right away. Also broccoli soup and some of the pies! mmmm
