We did it! Our first cookbook!

by Lori and Michelle on December 11, 2012

After months of picking the right recipes we finally are ready to share our top favorites. We are already planning to do more ebooks!

Many weeks of testing all the recipes (some we did a few times), setting up the scenes to photograph them, cleaned up all the dishes, did all the photo editing and typing up recipes. Then the final days were filled with placing, designing, editing, correcting, moving, cutting, adding, changing, etc. From start to finish we did it all!! So thank you for everyone’s patience with us!

It is here! Just in time for the holidays! This will make a great Christmas gift for anyone, new or familiar to gluten-free, or even vegan or raw foods. We share tips for each recipe!

Our first e-book is available! You can download a PDF copy here. (You can also find the link on our sidebar for you to purchase). 22 gluten-free vegan recipes for ONLY $6.99!

This cookbook is a collection of 22 of our favorite classic recipes including some we used to make and sell at our bakery. So for those of you who loved our biscotti, truffles, carrot cake (our favorite) and scones you are in luck! We have never shared these recipes before, but we wanted to give back to everyone that supported our bakery over the years. Sharing these recipes are our way of saying thank you and now you can enjoy some of your favorites again!

Trust us once you make our cardamom almond biscotti or chocolate truffles you will want to make them all the time :)

Even our top baked donut recipe is in there!

All of our recipes are free of gluten, dairy, eggs, and soy, with some grain and sugar free too! There is a mix of raw and baked goods as we love both worlds.

We have tested our PDF and it works on the iphone and ipad, but we are working on getting it on other formats for those that have kindles, nooks, ipads. It will be up for purchase on ibookstore and amazon in a few weeks. Sorry for the delay on those other platforms. We had some issues with getting everything in the right format since you had to have an ePub file. After spending all day yesterday trying to get it to work with the tools we had, we decided to go through a third party company (BookBaby) to help us get our ebook on all those other platforms. They said it could take about 10 days to make that all happen. In addition we are still working on a printed copy (soft covered book) of it as well, we will let you know when that is available.

But in the meantime, if you want to go ahead and get your copy now. Click add to cart.

As we mentioned you can download and view the PDF on digital platforms, but if you want to wait we will announce when it is available on ibookstore, amazon, and more digital stores. Thanks for understanding! There is a lot of behind the scenes things that have to be bought and done before selling on those stores.

We sure have learned a lot during this process that hopefully future books will be quicker to turn around. We wanted to make sure we got this one right, being our first ebook cookbook. We want EVERYONE ANYWHERE to be able to have our beloved gluten-free vegan recipes!

If you have any issues with your copy please contact us at purelytwins@gmail.com

Thank you for your support!

Hi Ladies! I found your blog via the Fitnessista. LOVE IT! :)

I am hosting a new years party this year and want to make your Pure2Raw Biscotti Cookie recipe. In terms of nuts my fiance can only eat almonds and peanuts. Can almonds be used instead of pecans in this recipe, or would it mess it up?

Thank you!

Congratulations on your first cookbook! I am quite health conscious and always looking for new *AND EASY* ways to drop some weight. I have quite a few friends who are gluten intolerant and have opened my eyes to the world of gluten free cooking and I am always looking for new recipes! I would also recommend the website http://www.ninacucina.com/. I recently purchased her book, Nina Cucina: Your Healthy Gourmet and I love her gluten free *and many dairy free* recipes! I am not a great cook but I found this book (and website) so informative and so easy to follow. For every single recipe the author, Nina Pucillo, gives the nutritional value of each dish and step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the dish. Thanks for sharing! I wish you much success and I hope my suggestion inspires or helps with future writing :)

Congratulations! :) So happy for you all. I’ve been following the site for awhile now, really great stuff.

I just found out about this diet called “The Virgin Diet”, I was thinking about trying but it seemed really difficult at first. But after checking back with your site again, it looks like Pure2Raw will really be a good source for recipes for “the Virgin Diet”. Thanks guys!

Lori and Michelle January 25, 2013 at 11:55 am

Thank you Gena!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail January 31, 2013 at 7:10 pm
