Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In a sea of diet cookbooks and healthy eating plans, the American Medical Association Family Health Cookbook is a breath of fresh air, with its easy-to-follow cooking instructions and handy nutritional charts. The AMA is the nation's largest organization of doctors--so you're in safe hands with these authors.

The collection kicks off with a 50-page section on good nutrition based on the USDA's food pyramid. Here you'll learn how to incorporate the essential food groups into your family's diet without breaking a sweat. Then comes the pièce de résistance--350 recipes that prove healthy eating doesn't have to be dull. These dishes are vibrant and creative, and will certainly appeal to young taste buds. A Modern Macaroni and Cheddar dish is just as tasty as traditional versions, but contains considerably less fat, and the Double Chocolate Brownies use apple sauce as a substitute for some of the shortening. Cooks can choose from a huge selection of ethnically diverse or more traditional entrees--from Thai Stir-Fry with Ginger and Mint to Summer Sloppy Joes. There are also delicious recipes for salads, appetizers, desserts, drinks, and light snacks.

Whether you're whipping up a light lunch or commanding a huge dinner party, the book abounds with fresh and inspired ideas. Simple step-by-step cooking instructions make this a great book for those new to the kitchen, or for cooks in a hurry. --Naomi Gesinger --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A miraculous three-quarters of the recipes I've tried from this book have been keepers. The authors have somehow managed to avoid the pitfall of trying to make palatable meals out of skim milk and celery. Instead, they have chosen dishes that at their best do not rely on unhealthy ingredients. Butter, cheese, and the like do appear in some recipes, in moderate amounts, just enough to prevent feeling that there's something missing. Among the best of the book: Fennel and prosciutto risotto, Bulgur taboule, Butternut squash soup, Minted couscous salad, Fiery pork tenderloin, and a gingery won ton soup that will be in heavy rotation at our house for years to come.

My mother-in-law gave me this book, and I have to say that I was not sure what to expect since it was an AMA cookbook--that doesn't exactly scream "delicious!" However, I have to say that I love this cookbook. I've had it for a couple of weeks now, and keep going back to it again and again. What I like best is interesting and inviting variety, along with tools and ideas on how to prepare things more healthfully. For example, last night I made the Yogurt Corn Bread. It tastes like corn bread, and it was good. Instead of a lot of fat, there's a yogurt-milk-oil mixture instead to give it its moisture. I feel like I'm learning how to make food using healthier ingredients just by trying many of the recipes. One thing I've noticed is that there's often a substitute for mayonnaise that involves yogurt, a little mayo, and a little sour cream. The taste doesn't suffer either. I made the traditional southern chicken salad and it was good, even my husband said so and he's not a fan of "light" cooking when it sacrifices flavor.

Good recipes, great variety including very homey dishes, and it's even an attractively printed book, very pleasant to read with nice illustrations and colored ink.
