Review

Bringing sensibility to sensory pleasures, this accessible, health-minded cookbook is a welcome resource in a burger and bacon-obsessed moment. Recognizing that there are good biological and emotional reasons why we seek out starchy, hearty, creamy dishes to sate ourselves, dietician and Food Network star Krieger (The Food You Crave), sees no reason why anyone should have to give them up wholesale. The goal, then, is to reduce fat, sodium and sugar without sacrificing flavor. Krieger avoids using artificial sweeteners and egg replacers—instead, she relies on what she terms the 15 Fix Factors to make her recipes healthier. These include substituting low-fat milk, evaporated milk and Greek yogurt for cream; baking breaded dishes instead of frying; adding smaller quantities of real, extra-flavorful cheeses and employing trimmed lean cuts of meat. Mango Stuffed Challah French Toast is lightened up with light ricotta, low-fat milk and nonstick cooking spray for a calorie savings of 150, while chicken parmesan loses 210 calories with light bread crumbs, egg whites, nonfat milk and part-skim mozzarella. With a nod to the cultural relativism of "comfort food," Krieger's repertoire runs the international gamut, from Easy Cassoulet to Kasha Varnishkas to Banana Pudding with Vanilla Wafers. Krieger's simple, time-conscious recipes with easy-to-find ingredients will satisfy sophisticated eaters and down-home palates alike. Photos. (Oct.) (PublishersWeekly.com)

I have all of EK's cookbooks, and she doesn't disappoint. The thing I find so appealing about her approach is that she totally gets people and food. She never says "I know you love it, but it isn't good for you so just don't eat it." She knows that people love to eat good food. She doesn't preach and she doesn't make you feel horrible about yourself because you really, really like cheese. She figures out a way to make "off-limits" foods accessible to those of us that love food AND want to be healthy. Her philosophy is all about balance (usually, sometimes, rarely foods) and her cookbooks give tons of examples for how to incorporate this balance into you diet. Comfort Food Fix is a great addition to my EK collection. I've only had it a few days, but have made several of the recipes (the pumpkin-cranberry bread is delicious and will be perfect for the holidays) and bought ingredients today to make several more. I feel good about preparing her recipes for my family. And they feel good eating them!

Ellie, you really hit it out of the Ball Park with your New Book "Comfort Food Fix:Feel- Good Favorites Made Healthy".The thing that was a real eye opener for me was the before and after data showing how many calories one could save by making a few simple changes.
Your meatloaf receipe and mashed potatoes were mouthwatering.I couldn't tell any difference between my old receipes,nor could my family!
Please,please,keep your beautifully photographed cookbooks comming!

This is the third book from Ellie Krieger that I own, though I have also read and made recipes out of others by her as well as those on the Food Network website. What I love about her food, as illustrated in this book is that it never feels like 'diet' food. It's full of sumptuous, crave-worthy foods that are made from real ingredients and taste like an only slightly lighter version of the original. I also appreciate that she pairs down the calories and fat grams in each recipe by making inspired swaps, not by making everything a teeny, tiny portion size. Expect classic American comfort foods like Baked Jalapeno Poppers, Stuffed Potato Skins, Nachos, Oven-Fried Shrimp and Chicken Parmesan to mention a few. I'm especially fond of her version of fish fingers in this book. They're very easy to make, require mostly pantry staples (flour, eggs, panko, etc.) and come together quickly. Overall, I would say the skill level of this book is easy to moderate. The time commitment is probably a little over 30 minutes per recipe, but on par with recipes from places like Cooking Light.

Best of all, her recipes really work. Of all the recipes of hers I've made over the years, I can't remember a single flop. Granted, I am a pretty experienced cook, but I still have my share of fails with other books and recipe sites. The recipes seem to be well tested and the directions are also exceptionally clear.

Thrilled to see this book is just as successful as her previous. I'd also recommend the Canyon Ranch books and Cooking Light cookbooks as other great resources for lower fat recipes that still satisfy.

This book has amazing recipes! The recipes don't call for ingredients I don't know where to find nor are they too complex for the average homebody to handle. I am impressed by the number of recipes I know my hubby will be willing to try, from make it yourself microwave popcorn in a paper bag to buffalo wings and individual cheesecakes. There are enough desserts, including homemade pudding and chocolate covered pretzel bites, to keep anyone from feeling deprived. The color photos are wonderful and there are loads of them to make your stomach growl while flipping through the book. This is a keeper. I highly recommend this book.

OMG the recipes are so yummy and healthful too! The "Everything" Parmesan Crisps are such a great snack and only 40 calories for 2. The broiled buffalo wings are just as good as restaurant-style without the frying, I also love the green bean casserole with crispy shallots is going to be my holiday center piece, The pictures are gorgeous and I can't wait to try out everything else!

I have all Ellie's books, and I pre-ordered this one a while ago. Few days ago I received this book (to my surprise b/c I've already forgot about it). As stated in my title, I was not disappointed with it. I love how it has the "before" and "after" calorie count as well as some new recipes. I would recommend this book to anyone. Wonderful product.

In true Ellie style, her newest book has delicious recipes that I couldn't believe are healthy too! The book has mouthwatering pictures and I can't wait to try each recipe-- these are all the dishes that I eat regularly. This is a must-have cookbook and a perfect addition to any collection.

I needed to get more serious about my health and therefore my diet. This book is going to be a really big help. I have a serious sweet tooth problem and the recipes in here are definitely up to the challenge of satisfying that sweet tooth.
