Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this follow-up to her 1994 bestseller Healthy Homestyle Cooking, Tribole continues to teach readers how to lighten up a varied assortment of family-pleasing dishes by using a smart collection of replacement ingredients and a refreshing dash of common sense. Don't cut out the mascarpone and cocoa so essential for tiramisu, she urges; pair them with fat-free cream cheese and sponge cake, swirled with frozen light whipped topping. Appetizers, entr?es, "fixings," desserts and baked goods have all been revamped the Tribole way, and she tells exactly how she did it in two information-packed introductory chapters (one featuring helpful "conversion" chartsAchange coconut flakes to coconut extract and save 337 calories!). Each recipe has a "nutritional scorecard" totaling fat and calories before and after; tricks for making changes (such as using fruit puree for shortening in cakes); and a complete nutritional analysis. Some selections are naturally light and easyABroiled Sole with Olive Topping or Portobello Pizzas (the caps serve as "crusts"). Others, like Chicken Kiev, demand more tinkering. If the goal is to have your Cheesy Green Enchiladas and eat them, too, then Tribole's methods will be great weapons in the battle against the bulge. (Oct.)

From Library Journal

Tribole is the author of Shape magazine's "Recipe Makeovers" column (but only one of these recipes appeared there), and her first Healthy Homestyle Cooking title has sold more than a million copies. For each recipe, she gives a "Nutrition Scorecard" listing calories and fat before and after her low-fat, low-calorie, low-cholesterol, high-fiber makeover. Many of the recipes are somewhat old-fashionedDOrange-Pineapple Fluff Gelatin, Chicken Kiev (though now stuffed with light Muenster cheese instead of herbed butter), Creamed Tuna on ToastDand the low-fat/no-fat substitutions make others seem like a shadow of their former selves. Obviously, however, there will be a good deal of demand.

I love the fact that she gives ways to eat healthier without sacrificing the taste or without giving up the foods I love.

I can't say enough good things about this book!! I bet I have a dozen low-fat or diet cookbooks collecting dust on my shelves because the recipes either don't taste good, they are too difficult to make, or I can't find the ingredients. Everything I have made from this cookbook has been fantastic and quick and easy, too. My husband loves what I cook now, and it is good for us, too. I am planning on purchasing her first Homestyle cookbook and getting rid of all the rest of my low fat cookbooks!

I own several healthy cookbooks and this has become my favorite from the day I purchased it. The recipes are delicious and exactly what I'm looking for when looking for low fat, healthy, tasty recipes.

How can you go wrong with Skillet Chicken Paprikash, Beef Stroganoff Bake, Chicken Smothered in Peanut Sauce, Hot Spinach-Artichoke dip, Swedish Meatballs, Stuffed Shells Florentine, Chicken Kiev, and more...it's everything my family loves and I feel great serving it when I know it's healthy.

I would also recommend Betty Crocker's Best of Healhty and Hearty Cooking as well as The Complete Cooking Light Cookbook. I refer to these three cookbooks almost every night!

I've enjoyed a few recipes already and had the book for 3 days. The Artichoke Frittata was great tasting and reduced calories and fat minus cooking oil and using egg whites. Never missed them. Pumpkin-Nut Muffins substitued applesauce for oil and used a healthy cup of whole wheat flour slipped in for health, but didn't affect density or flavor. My only disappointment with the book is that many recipes use refrigerator dough and some prepared ingredients that I wouldn't necessarily call "Healthy". If you are concerned with partially hydrogenated oils, then you would not enjoy some recipes. Overall it looks like a keeper in my overflowing shelf of cookbooks.

This book was a gift from my mother, and I must say it is one of the best gifts I have ever received. It is very difficult to find a cookbook that actually has nutritional information. This book has that, and more.
The tips and suggestion about how to "overhaul" your family favorites is worth it in and of itself. I now know why my lasagna turned out "soupy" when I used fat free ricotta cheese, and I now know how to fix it.
The recipes are simple, they taste delicious, and my friends and family never know they are eating "light." Yes, there are some meals that call for some pre-packaged items (such as refrigerated bread dough) but those recipes are usually in the "15 Minute Recipe" section, so I expect to find these time saving conveniences. The good thing is, you can substitute your own home-made items if you are not fond of the prepackaged. It will just take a little longer to make.
I truly flip through this cookbook every week when deciding what to make in the week ahead, and making out my shopping list. The most exotic incredients I found the book to call for was Anchovy Paste (for Ceasar Salad dressing) and Dried Mushrooms (Pasta with Wild Mushroom sauce) both of which can be found in most large super markets.
If you are looking for a low fat, healthy cookbook WITH nutritional information filled with recipes that most kids and teenagers won't turn their nose up at, then this book is for you!

This woman is pure genius. I have several low-fat cookbooks on my shelf that will gather dust now that I have three of Evelyn Tribole's cookbooks - one on desserts alone. She has taken several "everyday" recipes and transformed them into lower fat, lower calorie and overall healthier delights. Soooooo tasty too. Nothing she calls for in her recipes will require any special trips to a gourmet grocer - you will find the ingredients in any run of the mill supermarket. Before getting my hands on Tribole's books, I tried several cookbooks from some of the most reputable companies out there. I was becoming discouraged and was near ready to give up on the idea that healthy eating and taste could coincide. One of the coolest things is that Tribole gives away her trade secrets so that you can learn what modifications to make to turn your own recipes into healthier versions. Don't be hesitant because of the lack of familiarity with the author or by the cover images like I was - her books are the BEST!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have to start by saying that every one of these recipes are great! I'm a southern girl with a southern family and southern ways, and these recipes are practically taken from my grammies cookbook(minus the fat,grammie puts bacon grease in everything).One week of eating from these recipes and I've already lost 11 pounds! The ingredients are easy to find and the recipes are so simple that I enjoy cooking again! The aunt boojies chocolate box cake tastes like a brownie(yes its that rich) but has the fluffy texture that makes it good enough to go to a church supper! It replaces my daily little debbie fix and will probably save me from a heart attack! Thank You Evelyn!

I just got this book and have made several recipes which are GREAT! The sesame chicken is as good as any you'd get in a restaurant, and WAY better for you! The beef stroganoff is one of my boyfriend's favorites--he's already asked me to make it again. It's so nice to be able to make great meals you would be happy to serve to guests, and know you're not blowing all your nutritional goals in the process! I'll be getting the first book soon!
