Absolutely! I don't think it's me, though. I think it's the ingredients. DH and I were pretty adventurous, students of FoodNetwork, always lamenting the crap selection of good ingredients in our local grocery stores, but we were a little timid when it came to meat portions and use of cooking oils and fatty ingredients. I have really stepped up my cooking and shopping contribution, because I am the primal driver in the family and everybody is happy with the primal meals that have been appearing. I have sourced pastured meat, dairy and eggs, local organic produce, good olive and coconut oil. Nearly every primal recipe I've made has been a winner, according to my family, whereas previously, DH and I were happy with a 50% success rate.
