Hate eating cardboard? Tired of salad with grilled chicken? This cookbook's for you!
Classic catch-22, I want to eat healthy, but I have a deep aversion to the words "light," "fat free" or "low carb". America's Test Kitchen to the rescue! They made certain that these recipes actually taste good. Seriously. Guiltless pleasure.
However, use the ingredients they tell you to use. They used every trick in their repertoire (and invented quite a few new ones) to use the least amount of fat and still deliver full flavor. If they use something full fat, it's because the lower fat versions didn't work. Repress the impulse to switch it out!!! Take a deep breath, look at the fat/calorie breakdown (good, right?), and prepare to enjoy something delicious.
Full disclosure: I'm not the best cook... I've been known to burn the onions and overcook the greens. However, these recipes are practically foolproof. If I do manage to goof up, I usually know just what i did wrong (it's still pretty good...), and I get it right the next time.

The book is entertaining to read as they tell about the process they went through to make each recipe possible and I really appreciate the nutritional information. The recipes are wonderful and the recipe stories are a wonderful inspiration for more recipes.

Light & Healthy 2011 offers a fine compendium of the year's best recipes - lightened up and tested for this collection. From a 1960s popular, originally-calorie-laden Chicken Cordon Bleu to Spicy Spaghetti Pie, this is packed with dishes that are old favorites modified for modern times. Extensive descriptions on why they have been altered and how they work make for an outstanding collection suitable for any general lending library.

Always been an ATK fan but most of their recipes fall into the holiday only category because as delightfully tasty as they are, they are also heart stopping artery cloggers (tomato mac and cheese anyone). This book allows me to make these whenever and they still taste amazing. The instructions are, as always, very complete and easy to follow and I love being able to enjoy these great recipes more often. Thanks ATK!

There are so many awesome recipes and the photos and tips can not be beat. I purchased all 3 years of this series and am working my way through trying many of the recipes. Perhaps the best is the Spinach lasagna...so good and not difficult at all.

I love ATK cookbooks, and this one has so many great recipes. I've used it for so many dinners, some favorites are spa chicken with various sauces, and the fish cakes with home made tartar sauce are two of ours.
