Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Gassenheimer (Low-Carb Meals in Minutes) expands her focus on easy-to-prepare, healthy meals by incorporating the USDA's latest Food Pyramid guidelines into this easy-to-use compilation of deceptively simple and tasty dishes. Dishes like Cajun-Bronzed Mahi-Mahi with Rice and Spinach Pilaf and Honey Walnut French Toast may sound daunting to the novice, but, like all recipes included, are a cinch to prepare. Instructions are easy to follow, and Gassenheimer offers nutritional information for each dish as well as shopping lists, suggestions for substitutions and a timeline for production to streamline cooking time. Some of the recipes are so absurdly simple that they barely count as recipes. (Melted Cheese Toasts calls for just two ingredients, as does Cinnamon Grapefruit, though the latter requires no cooking.) Experienced cooks will likely find greater inspiration elsewhere, but those new to cooking will find it a useful confidence-builder.

Format: Paperback
This book is very well organized to help you save time in the kitchen. Most of the recipes require few ingredients. The meals are good and the portion sizes are satisfying. One of the things I like most about the book is that the dishes are paired (entree, side, and dessert). I'm happy with this purchase. It's a book I will use again and again.

Format: Paperback
I found this cookbook at my local library and I really like it. Most of the recipes are simple and easy to make with fresh ingredients that can be tweaked if you're feeling creative. I like that it has a "side dish" (usually simple things like rice, pasta, fruit or veggies) included with each recipe to make is a complete meal. But the number one thing I love about this book is that most of the recipes are sized for two portions! Finally a cookbook that I can use to make something quick for just me and the hubby! If I need more then the recipe can easily be doubled and it helps in the battle against fast food in my house. Would probably be a good gift for someone moving out on their own for the first time too!
