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.
