Editorial Reviews

Review

Most low-fat cookbooks reduce fat by using artificial substitutes and refined processed foods: this tells how to reduce fat without such additives and with an attention to increasing flavors through herbs and spices. The result is a cookbook which is so tempting that it doesn’t seem your usual ‘fat free’ fare. -- Midwest Book Review

Customer Reviews

My husband and daughter love the desserts in this book.
D. J. Sizemore
I especially like it that with each recipe there's a nutritional breakdown of the calories, cholesterol, fat, fiber, protein, and sodium, per serving.
Rita M. Keil
I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to eat good food without the fat.

OK, I couldn't help it. I was browsing for another of Sandra Woodruff's books and decided to add my two cents. I have used this book for 8 years. While dieting I have fended off ravenous family members who swore they would not touch "diet food" with a ten foot pole, yet devour the fat free pizza, calzones, chicken enchiladas, and sticky buns like they were in heaven. My son is now almost 19 and still loves this food. Sandra Woodruff has a gift for making healthy food everyone's preferred choice.

If you're looking for a cookbook that gives you many delicious, easy-to-prepare, low fat/fat free recipes--and also shows you how to modify your favorite recipes--this is it. A registered dietician, Sandra Woodruff concentrates on making foods low in calories and fat, and high in nutrition. Not to mention delicious, and extremely easy to prepare. This is probably the cookbook I turn to most often (besides her "Secrets of Fat Free Baking"). My husband--a traditional meat 'n potatoes kind of guy--even loves these recipes. One of his favorite meals now is the Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard Sauce. My one complaint is that the book is not indexed very well. So, if you've got a favorite recipe--you'll have many in here--be sure to save that free amazon.com bookmark that'll come with this must-have cookbook.

If I'm going to cook anything, this is the book I grab first. You would never even know most of these recipes are low in fat if you were not specifically told. I have cooked many of them for people not concerned with fat content and they were shocked when I told them how healthy everything was! The only complaint I would have is that the portion sizes are sometimes much smaller than you would think, but that is not necessarily a bad thing since most of us were raised in households that ate portions that were way too large! I highly recommend this book for anyone who is bored by grilled chicken salad every day and is looking for some low fat adventure.

I love to cook and am currently on Weight Watchers, not a good combination. The recipes I have tried in this book are quick and tasty. Some are a bit more involved for those days when I want to devote more time to meal preparation and others I can put together when I get home from work. The necessary nutrition information is listed with each recipe making it easy to figure the points per serving.
This book is a definite plus for anyone wanting to lose weight, eat heathy and be able to eat something other than a steady diet of salad. My husband and 18 year old stepson have eaten the food I've prepared using these recipes and have also found it to be tasty and fit for eating.

This book made it easier for me to provide my family with healthier alternatives to the fat-saturated world of eating. We chose to go low-fat for genetic health reasons and have found S. Woodruff's books a fantastic purchase. There are so many good recipes included in each book (healthy, too, because of her natural substitutions) that we now own four of her books and use each one. We enjoy the healthier benefits of her cooking, but also reap large smiles from still eating desserts and fun foods without all the health risks. You just can't say enough good things about her cooking. Although her cooking is not totally fat-free, she is allowed to use this label due to the fact that each recipe has less than 1 gram of fat per serving - that's pretty remarkable! I, as the main cook, wish there were more of her books.

Of all of this author's books, I find this one to be the absolute best! The recipes are great because you don't have to buy products that may longer exist (i.e. Betty Crocker low-fat frosting) now that the "low fat" craze has gone by. I love these recipes and can't wait to try them all.

This book has so many delicious recipes I don't know where to start or end. I'm a Weight Watcher and the nutritional information made it a snap to include these recipes in my program. The Italian version is also wonderful. Way to go Sandra!
