2.0 out of 5 stars Not So Healthy - Very Yucky February 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not at all sure what criteria author "Valerie Hockert, Chef" has used to determine "Healthy" in Healthy Recipes For the Family 2012 Collection. Sporting a Table of Contents that though interactive features only divisions like Appetizers or Main Dishes, many of Valerie's recipe choices are not only distinctly unhealthy, but some are decidedly odd. The appetizer chapter is very heavy on cheese balls & dips made with cream cheese and sour cream, oddly interspersed with recipes that call for low fat dressings. Low fat items are not necessarily more "healthy" from a nutritional point of view - elimination of the fat usually means an increase in carbohydrate and filler content. The breads chapter was no better. A carrot bread featuring soy flour, wheat germ and whole wheat flour (which will, BTW, be very heavy) contrasts sharply with a pumpkin bread recipe that calls for 3 cups of sugar in a recipe that contains a mere 3 1/2 cups flour. A Breakfast recipe for a French Toast Bake does call for "low fat margarine" but it also calls for a full cup of packed brown sugar.

One recipe was remarkable for its Yuck Factor, though it was hardly alone:

Chicken/Rice Skillet

1 chicken boneless,skinless chicken breast
1 cup brown rice
1/2 cup frozen peas
2-3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce

Poach chicken. Drain water. Add water and rice according to directions. (usually 1 brown rice and 1 1/2 cups water). Cook on slow boil until rice is done. Add frozen peas; cook until peas are thawed. Add teriyaki sauce. (All typos and misspellings in the original.
