These recipes are tasty and easy to prepare. Jane's Turkey Carcass Soup is the best standard soup stock recipe I have ever found. If you actually enjoy vegetables - and don't need to approach them like medicine or something to force yourself to eat beacause they're "good for you" - then I highly recommend this book.
I've been on a high-carbohydrate, high-fiber, low-fat diet all my life. I'm 40 years old now & have never had health or weight problems. Neither has anyone in my family (we all eat the same food). So from personal experience I can testify that this type of diet works. It's a diet you can stick with for life, without feeling deprived, & without having to count calories or having a nutritional analysis for each & every thing you eat.
I live with a vegetarian, so most of what I've cooked has been the meatless recipes, and without exception, they have all been wonderful! Some of these recipes are also my potluck dinner staples (esp the Tri-Color Chickpea Salad). The Quick Lasanga with Bean Sauce has been the hit of every party I've taken it to, and the Lentil soup is to die for.
At one point, I went through a heavy-duty baking phase, and tried many of the muffin and quick bread recipes in this book. Again, there wasn't a dud in the bunch - everything I baked was excellent and won praise from all who partook.
Most of the recipes in this book are very good "as is" (they don't need much futzing with). There is some prep work involved (lots of chopping of veggies and the like), so many of the recipes do take some time. Almost half of the book consists of information about food, nutrition, cooking hints and techniques, which I've found to be very useful. Personally, if you have to have one main cookbook, I'd say that this should be it!

This is an excellent cook book. I ordered it because I wore out my first copy. However, this book has such a dirty cover and edges that I do not want the thing in my kitchen. Read morePublished on October 18, 2013 by Elna Goodspeed
The book was in good shape except there was handwriting on one of the pages. I thought it was supposed to be 'like new" except for yellowed pages.Published on July 28, 2013 by Joan M. Molinelli
