So far I've made two recipes from this cookbook: Chunky Tomato-Bean Soup and Tuna and Broccoli Bake. Both turned out well and I'll make them again. I've tagged many recipes to try such as Toasted Philly Turkey Sandwiches, Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches, Cheesy Chicken and Artichoke Pizza, Greek Split Pea Soup, Onion Topped Turkey Divan, and Loaded Baked Potato Casserole.
The recipes aren't necessarily "health food" fare and some may be higher in fat and calories that what is preferable, but any of the ingredients can be substituted with low-fat, lower sodium versions and whole grain pastas can be used. Since I need to watch carbs I can use more meat and less pasta in many of the recipes and add more veggies, or I can make an open-face sandwich using one slice of bread instead of two, etc. I also like that the recipes use regular ingredients that can be found in any grocery store.
The focus is on dinner entrees so breakfasts, side dishes, and desserts are not included but does feature a menu planner with suggested side dishes for the recipes, as well as a metric conversion chart. Each recipe has a suggested variation and has the nutritional information per serving, including exchanges for those following a weight loss or diabetic program using that method.
This would be a great cookbook for a new bride or anyone of any level of cooking expertise who wants plenty of variety for supper menus.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
I especially enjoyed the first two pages, where the Betty Crocker teams helps the reader out by giving them fresh ideas with a section called Dinner Dilemma Solutions and Moment's Notice Menu Planner.
The Dinner Dilemma sections walks the reader through how to avoid the Dinner Dilemma by having a well stocked pantry, menu planning ideas, and helpful hints to be a smart shopper.
The Moment's Notice Menu Planner shows how to plan out a few meals for the week that will make cooking dinner a snap.
The rest of the book is packed with nothing but amazing looking recipes.
This week I've got planned a few meals from this cookbook, but the one I'm really looking forward to trying out is the Cheesy Rigatoni with Eggplant Sauce.. YUMMY!!
