I own all of the Hungry Girl cookbooks, and I was actually happy to see that this "Bible" has come out, I decided to purchase this book in Kindle format since it is filled with a lot of old favorites from the other books, (and some great new things that I can't wait to try ), making it much easier to take along to the grocery store. I am however a little disappointed on the way the index is set up, It would be nice to have links that would take me to all the recipes that I am looking for, for instance, I want to find recipes for Salmon, well if I look up salmon in the index, well yeah the word is there, but it is not linked to any of the salmon recipes, so I would still have to look in the table of contents to find any recipe with the word salmon in it, this takes up way to much time. I love the Picture section, if there is something that looks good, then just click on the picture and it takes you to the recipe, just wish there were pictures to all the recipes, but yeah that is asking to much, can you imagine 650 pictures! LOL, the book would be HUGE. Anyway I gave this book all 5 stars because it is Hungry Girl and she has Awesome Recipes! But I give the Kindle Format only 4 stars because of the index problem. If you don't have any of Hungry girl books yet, then this would be a GREAT one to start with, but if you already have some of her books, then this would be a Great one to have on the Kindle, no point in repeating it on hard copy. It has everything you need, the best of the best!

I wasn't expecting this book to be as huge as it is ... it's full size pages (about 8.5x11) and over an inch thick. It's FULL of great recipes ... single serving omelets made in mugs, great sounding oatmeal, yummy parfaits, crock pot specialties, pastas, and tons more. Each recipe is labeled with a number of symbols to indicate how long it will take to make, if it's vegetarian, if there is a photo of the item somewhere in the book, etc.

Highly recommend this book!

I wanted to like this book, I really did. I was looking for some great "comfort food" diet recipes and I thought the price/recipe ratio was a great deal. I was excited as a Weight Watchers member for some more variety and compatible recipes.

It's basically the same recipes, same ingredients, re-hashed over and over again with little to slight variation to make up a bulk of the book.

She likes to use substitutions, but she uses them for the bulk of the book such as, spaghetti squash for spaghetti, cauliflower for potatoes, pita and tortillas instead of pizza dough. This is fine, but if you don't care for these substitutions or if you just don't want them all the time, you're out of luck as they are used a majority of the time.

She calls for the same brand-name ingredients excessively. Making really for little variation in her recipes. And really, to the extent that she calls for these brands and praises them, it LOOKS like a book of exuberant endorsement deals.

Hungry Girl's official position is that they do not accept compensation for editorial "placement." Make of that what you will, but I haven't been the only one with suspicions (any layman would be) because of the amount to which she calls for the same brands.

Either way, if you use the book often you're going to be VERY sick of Fiber One cereal and Laughing Cow cheese, for example.

If you are looking for some great WW friendly recipes I've become a big fan of the Skinnytaste blog.

Bottom line, I WANTED to like this book but with the bulk of it being repetitious, filler recipes, it just isn't worth it. I'm returning my copy.

Format: Paperback
I have to sum up this cookbook in one word: fun! From the colorful graphics to the personal style of the author, this collection of 650 recipes makes menu planning and cooking an enjoyable experience. (One caveat: if you detest pink, you won't like this book because every page is pink. I happen to like the color so for me it wasn't an issue.)

A lot of the recipes are for one serving which is good news for singles who enjoy cooking, and any recipe can be doubled, tripled, etc., to meet the needs of a family or larger gathering. It is unexpectedly versatile because everyone can use it from single college students to newlyweds cooking for two to larger families.

If food doesn't taste good, we won't bother and that's the point of this cookbook. It offers tasty and satisfying low-calorie recipes that fill us up without the guilt. Many of them rely on artificial sweeteners, fat-free foods, and processed foods such as liquid egg substitute like Egg Beaters, Splenda, fat-free sour cream and salad dressings, bottled sauces, canned fruit and vegetables, etc. but they can be easily modified using the whole or fresh food versions for people who aren't counting calories or don't like the low-calorie or processed ingredients. Overall I found the recipes to be healthy alternatives to most restaurant or fast-food choices and portion sizes are large enough to be satisfying while not encouraging overeating. Mostly I like that the recipes use ingredients easily found in any grocery store and can be easily modified to personal taste.

Each recipe includes icons to indicate serving size, amount of preparation time, meatless dishes, and those that use five ingredients or less.
