Every recipe that I have tried has been amazing.

Most of these recipes call for things that you probably already have in your kitchen.

I loved this cookbook and ended up cooking 7 recipes, not including some of the salad dressing and marinades that I tried. The meals are separated into many sections. There are breakfast, lunch, dinner, stir-fry meals, casseroles, and much more. Not only does the book include recipes but there are little boxes that include tips and substitutions if you don't have ingredients on hand. It also includes an index.

Everyone looks for different things in a cookbook but I can only tell you the things that are important to me.

Pictures. I have to have tons of pictures. I will buy a cookbook because of the pictures alone. I like the pictures because they tell me if my end result was on the right track. And of course they make me hungry enough to want to cook something instead off nuking some pizza rolls (don't judge!)

This cookbook has at least one picture per page! It's absolutely wonderful. The food looks so amazing and I know instantly which recipes I would be interested in trying. In this aspect, this book is far above the rest.

Ingredients - Number. I don't like cooking recipes that have tons of ingredients because I increase the likelihood that I will forget to buy something or that I will forget to add it into my recipe (I forgot the cream cheese in a spinach dip recently and still ate it. True story.). Plus, tons of ingredients make me think that the recipe will be more expensive to make whether or not that's true.

I think the number of ingredients in these recipes are reasonable. There are usually about 10 ingredients but that will include salt, pepper, and cooking spray. For my lifestyle, I can usually do with fewer ingredients but you know...I'm just like that.

Ingredients - Common.

They've done it again!

Fantastic new book from Weinstein/Scarbrough.
Easy and effective techniques. This book is great for family meals or feeding guests who "drop in".
In addition to the written recipes, each page has color illustrations.
This is a must for every cookbook library.

I have used this several times and purchased for each of my children and friends children that were always uneasy about cooking. They all love it! This book breaks down the basics of your kitchen, sauces, spices to what you should always have on hand in the kitchen! This book is a great addition to anyone's kitchen! Great book Cooking Light!!

I'm obsessed with the pasta primavera from this book! There are SO many great, low calorie recipes.... including vegetarian recipes, which are hard to find. I also really loved some of the cooking tips. Most of these recipes call for things that you probably already have in your kitchen. Clear instructions. Because the calories, fat, protein, and other health info are included for each recipe, this is great to use with weight watchers, Lose It app, and other diets where you need to count. And the recipes don't taste diety- they taste DELICIOUS. Thank you so much for this book. I hope you write a cooking light vegetarian version one day!
