      Robert that means so much- thank you for your support (and for going through the trouble of printing them out!). Cannot even describe how much this means, so awesome to hear your enjoying the recipes so much with the fam!! What an honor!

      • Rob says:

        My 10 yo son was diagnosed with T1D last year and our whole family has adopted this Low Carb High Protein diet as part of the solution to managing it. #typeonegrit #drbernstien

        When I said I wanted to learn to cook, I had no idea that I was going to have to learn how to cook in this way, but now that we have, we are all a lot healthier and believe that he is as well.

        Your recipes have been largely responsible for his happy transition away from sugars and have expanded his tastes in ways we never would have predicted. Even he shares your recipes with his friends 😍

        We have tried all the keto author’s recipes and yours are the ones that most consistently produce the smiles. Please keep experimenting and writing. You have a true gift.

        If we can ever help promote your work, please let us know how.


    • Paola van der Hulst says:

      Hi Sheila! Remember please that we’re like any other person out there and need to take weekends off (occasionally, because I end up working most!) and little holidays too (I was definitely not working over the holiday weekend!). We have roughly 500 comments and emails to go through today, please bear with us! xo and thank you so much!

  3. Teresa says:

    My son and I LOVE your recipes. I am trying to buy your ebook now (via the SALE), but it doesn’t seem to be working. It says $4.99, but when I click yes, the price changes to $14.98. 🙁 Am I doing something wrong?

    • Paola van der Hulst says:

      Teresa that’s so awesome to hear (kiddos approval is always the best lol!)!! The $4.99 is for the bundle deal with our other ebook Speedy Comfort Foods (if you just want to purchase summer, select no thanks and its on sale from 12.99 to 9.99. Apologies for the confusion, I know the checkout is a bit confusing and I’m trying to find something better xo!

  4. Pea Green says:

    Woohoo! I just treated myself to your cookbooks as yours are the only recipes I trust, Paola. Your recipes have helped me with my weight and diabetes and I can’t tell you how much we all adore you and thank you for all you hard work testing and baking this delicious food. x x x x x x x x x

  5. Retta Dodge says:

    I purchased the summer favorites ebook along with the keto speedy ebook as a package. I was able to download successfully the keto speedy one but the summer favorites never downloaded correctly and I do not have access to it. Can you please either email me a pdf, or reimburse me for the summer favorites?

    • Paola van der Hulst says:

      Hi Miguel! I’m SO sorry this happened! It looks like we had a major email outage and a few of your emails got lost (again I AM SO SORRY I didn’t realize sooner!). I’m emailing you guys today xo! Paola

  7. Bev says:

    I have done some reading about keto and I am not sure I can believe the hype. But I really want to believe it. I have over a hundred pounds to loose and I was wondering if your book cover how keto works? How to get started on keto? If not can you advise me on a reputable website?

    • Heather Hinson says:

      Pardon me for butting in. Bev, Keto isn’t hype it’s very much based in science. It not only sheds pounds but the way you feel on it is life changing. There is a wealth of info online but for a clear explanation that’s easy to understand look up Dr. Berg on YouTube. He has lots of videos explaining many aspects of keto. I’ve lost a lot and am still going. Feel free to email me if you need a friend to help you start!
      Just so it’s clear I’m not selling anything nor am I a doctor. I am on keto FOR LIFE and love to help people discover how amazing this way of eating is.
      Sorry Paola if my answering was rude. I adore you and your blog and meant no offense!!

      • Betty Sovereign says:

        So glad to hear your enthusiasm! I am of the much older generation and have been doing Keto for 11 months. Not far from my goal weight, but when I get there, I will not change my way of eating. Maybe just a few more carbs, if I can afford them.

      • Adell says:

        This is one of the things I love about the keto community. I’m new. 6 weeks in. Love the energy and the sleep and the wat I feel. Especially the inflammation in my hands is gone. Big bonus…down 19 pounds. Would have been more but I went to Youth camp and added 8 pound gain. Had to relose that.

    • Georg says:

      Hi Bev

      Keto is a way of feeding yourself in a matter that allows you to run your body on fat instead of carbs and that is what makes the difference. Thomas DeLaur and Dr Eric Berg are some reputable youtube public speakers. It is free to watch all their videos and and and.

      I am on keto foods in one shape or form over 14 years now after my addiction to wheat (carbs) came to a standstill with several severe heart attacks and all this due to undiagnosed diabetes. I was insulin dependent for 2 years until I started a different approach with better food intake (paleo) and that made me shred an incredible 55 kg of fat.

      After this I am convinced, doing very moderate excercise and best high fat intake, that I am in control of my health. No longer do I require medication or ultraregular Dr visits. In short all is well!! If you helprequire or a chat then drop me a line and we will get there.

      Go for it because it is you who you are looking after so look after the one you must love the most which is YOURSELF. Just drop me an email to

    • Deborah Herren says:

      Watch the Magic Pill, you tube Dr Ken Berry, MD has over 200 videos and starts at where to get started- this is one of the best sites for recipes and Im about to checknout this sale. I have never made any of her recipes and not like them! Leto for life here! Was on 4-5 shots of insulin a day. No now diabetic meds and a normal A1C, down 60 lbs. it works great!

    • Jan Oldham says:

      Hey Bev, I have been on Keto for 10 months. I lost 35 pounds the first 6 months. I have been on a plateau for a few months, but the exciting part of this is that I didn’t gain any back. I just keep eating Keto until I am satiated and I stay full longer. I have less of my chronic pain, I do not have cravings and I have more energy than my 60 year old body knows what to do with. I am certain I am putting on muscle as I work and play this summer and that accounts for my clothes getting looser even though the scale hasn’t budged. Muscle weighs more than fat. The biggest thing for a yo-yo dieter, that I had been for 40 years is that I have not cheated once. I don’t need to cheat with these awesome recipes. It is food that satisfies. 😀

  8. Kandace Thompson says:

    I am going to be making your tres leches cake tomorrow for my husbands 40th birthday party.. That is his favorite cake! Is there a whey protein you suggest? Do I get vanilla or unflavored?? Thank you!!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Kandace!! I use the unflavored Isopure brand (I would always get unflavored!). xo and hope you enjoy (ps do allow it ample time to soak up the milk!) xo!

    • Paola says:

      Yay!! It’s coming asap (had a few hiccups with the site this week so I decided to postpone the launch, keep posted next week ;)!)

  9. Roxann Selby says:

    Please Paola please please please publish a cookbook!!! Not just summer stuff ALL of your stuff break it off into season if you want for bettering sales but if you made any physical cookbook that is available through Chapters Indigo I would be one of the first to purchase it!!!

  10. Debby Konecny says:

    I do like cookbooks in the ebook format….
    however, will you ever make this into a regular hardcover (soft cover) format?
    I’d love to be able to purchase it that way, first and foremost.
    I absolutely love your recipes!
    All I’ve tried so far have been fabulous!!
    Sure wish it was available in more than just the ebook format, however.

  11. Felix H. Rodriguez says:


    I truly have to say you are God’s blessing to many of us on the keto diet. What you’ve done and continue to do is invaluable. Speaking for myself, with many physical health, your recipes bring variety along with good health that hopefully will help me get back to being healthy; however, I do have a recipe request. Would you be able to make into keto an italian classic, Pizza Rustica? If so, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you for the recipes you’ve developed and the future ones that you’ve yet to do.


  12. Tamara says:

    Hi Paola! Big fan of your site. Have made many dishes but it’s my first time commenting. You are really bringing back joy to foodies like me who love to cook, who loves food and who has gone keto. So thank you! Oh and please please please come out with a new Christmas cookbook! Looking forward to making your eggnog this year. And more noodle recipes are so appreciated. Your pad Thai recipe rocks! Have an awesome Fall!

  13. Maggie says:

    Dear Paola!

    You are so wonderful!! Thank you for all of the delicious and beautiful recipes!! Thank you for the care you put into everything you do! Such a joy!!

  14. Libby says:

    Love, love, love your recipes and this cookbook! Will you be creating more cookbooks? I’d love one with fall/winter recipes! Just made the carrot cake cupcakes and oh my goodness!

  15. Tiffany says:

    I just purchased your cookbook, but every time I try to download the pdf it says site not secure and doesn’t download 🙁
    I don’t want to blow through my limited attempts by continuing to try. Is there any other way I can receive my pdf? THANK YOU!

  16. Jon Rueter says:

    Dear Paola, thank you so much for sharing your enormous talent with the world. I am only too happy to be able to purchase this cookbook to support the hard (and delicious) work you do. I identify primarily as a baker in terms of the culinary arts 🙂 but love cooking everything. What I love most are your baked goods and desserts and the complexity and texture you manage to achieve! I started eating low carb/lazy keto about 10 months ago and am perfectly fine accepting some tradeoffs in taste and texture in exchange for the many, many benefits of cutting the carbs. However, now that tradeoff margin is razor thin! Your biscuits OMG, your tortillas! The list goes on – your mayo is a recent fave – oh, and the coffee ice cream! I’m in love!!! Ha ha. And if I may… I’d love to put in a request for a salted caramel ice cream one of these days! Feel guilty asking for anything when you have given us so much. Anyway, thanks again, you wizard! My husband and I love your creations. There are many great sites out there who I also love and frequent, but you are at the top of the heap, Paola!

  17. Sheila Durnil says:

    Do any of the recipes need adjusted for High Altitude cooking? We are at 5000+ and some things do not lift, rise, or cook the same as they did when at lower levels.

    • Paola says:

      Hi Sheila! I’m currently in Mexico City (12-13,000 ft!) so no need to worry- all the recipes work for high altitudes (a lot of readers from Colorado comment frequently) xo!

      • Patsy Sturrock says:

        I’ve just downloaded my purchased copy of your book, but I can only see one page, with 3 lines of print. Can you suggest a solution?

  18. Kathy says:

    You’re my new go-to gal for delicious, trustworthy recipes. So glad I found you!!! Thank you for giving us delicious, non-eggy deliciousness!!! I hate that other stuff!!

  19. Laura Eldred says:

    I thought I purchased your cookbook but must have deleted the download. Would you please resend it to me?

  20. Kay says:

    Hello Love! i am enjoying my ebook, that cone recipe was da bomb and barbecue sauce is on point(minus oregano…lol)…I have tried many other recipes as well, one behooves me though…I cant seem to get my chips to “puff” .They become concave on one side but never creating the puff you have in the photos.. 🙁

    • Paola says:

      Hi Kay! So awesome to hear you’re enjoying the book 🙂 Regarding the chips, it’s happened to a few readers before and usually what solves the puffing issue is to decrease the water (large eggs or various brands simply absorb water different- coconut flour is notorious for this). So try either eliminating the water completely or just adding 1 tsp! Hope this helps! xo

  21. Lorie Cooper says:

    Thank you thank you! Your recipes are so easy to follow and so darn good! As I continue the ketogenic life I look forward to tasteful yet easy recipes. You have won the medal!!!
    I’m always looking and waiting for you to post new recipes.
    Thanks again,

  22. LAURA V says:

    Hola paola

    Me encantan tus recetas. Siendo mexicana ha sido muy difficil para mi familia (tu sabes por lo de los tacos, las tortas 🤪 y los tamales ) hacer el cambio a una vida cetogenica pero gracias a tus recetas hemos sobrepasado el primer mes. Mi hijo que siempre ha sido super super picky le encantaron tu receta de waffles y las galletas realmente les ha ayudado a quitarse la ansiedad del pan y azucar acabo de comprar tu libro y no puedo esperar en hacer todas las recetas. Muchas gracias por toda la informacion

    • Paola says:

      Laura que gusto leerte y que las recetas les han funcionado!! Y sip, te endiendo PERFECTO con la situación de la vitamina T 😜! Espero que sigan disfrutando mucho y gracias por apoyar comprando el libro! Un beso!

      p.s. no se si haz visto, pero es un gran ahorro para comprar ingredientes keto y lo mandan a Mexico (tarda como dos-cuatro semanas).

  23. DB says:

    How many of the recipes require the use of an oven? Just hate the way it heats up our whole apartment so I want to avoid using the oven in summer if possible!

    • Paola says:

      Hi DB! I just did a quick count and about 17 require an oven (mainly the baked goods). Some you can do on the grill instead (roasted aubergines can be grilled for instance). xo!

  24. Sharon says:

    I have just received your Keto summer e-cookbook. Recipes look great & I am excited to try some of them. I have one question-you say that you can probably substitute the flaxseed meal with psyllium husk powder–when doing that it the measurement 1:1 ex. 1/4 cup flaxseed meal = 1/4 psyllium husk powder. I do not use flaxseed or chia due to much controversy in the keto community. I have tried many of your recipes and I have had very good results with them. Just made graham crackers last week for the grandchildren & they loved them. Also make your cinnamon toast cereal all the time for them. Thanks for all your hard work and willingness to share your recipes with others.

  25. rebecca ferrier says:

    Hi Paola!
    Your recipes are fantastic! I know that I can make anything from your website and it will be perfected to deliciousness! Our current favorite is your peanut butter choc chip cookies, which we make every week and gobble them up! I’m buying your book today, can’t wait! Please keep up the good work! Xx rebecca
