Cook Yourself Sexy is a wonderful cookbook - the recipes are straightforward and totally not intimidating. Unlike many other healthy cookbooks out there, the ingredients are easy to find, and most you probably already have on hand. Love her, love the recipes and love the uplifting intro. I wasn't expecting the cookbook to be empowering - just an added bonus!

I hate to leave a less then good review :( but I just got this book a month ago and I have been trying new recipes from it but have yet to have anything that was good enough to make again. I made the roasted corn and cucumber salad that was OK but not delicious enough to make again, and the same can be said for the tomatillo salsa, and roasted garlic lentil soup. After having not so good results with the recipes I did try, I will most likely not use the cookbook again. I think if you are looking for a healthy cookbook to help you loose weight or eat healthy you would be better off with Tosca Reno's Eat Clean cookbooks, I have had much better luck with those. The presentation of the book and the cute titles make it really fun, I only wish I could say the same for eating the food.

I was excited to receive this book but when I finally did and went threw the recipes, I wasn't impressed. A lot of the ingredients I needed was not something I would have on a regular basis. Some items I didn't even know where to purchase. I ended up turning around and selling the book on ebay.

I had to buy Candice Kumai's new Cookbook after loving her first one, Pretty Delicious, so much! So glad I did too! It does not disappoint one bit. This is a perfect companion cookbook to her first. I hope she is working on another one.

I bought the two other "Cook Yourself Thin" books in addition to this one. I like the recipes in this one the best. The author also offers great tips on eating healthy. The book came very quickly and was brand new.
