This is an excellent cookbook with surprisingly delicious recipes.

It has a lot of recipes for great staple dishes, and a lot of more creative and fun dishes.

This is an excellent cookbook with surprisingly delicious recipes. I have been using it daily for the past two weeks. My husband and I have enjoyed all of our meals. I can't believe that these recipes are actually healthy and so easy to make. There are quite a few 'all-time favorite' recipes included that are very tasty. I strongly recommendly this cookbook. There's a lot of variety...something for everyone.

This is a wonderful reference for your kitchen. It is filled, and I mean filled, with recipes and ways to cut out some fat here, reduce calories there while maintaining great taste. I was so happy with the book, I subscribed to the monthly magazine. BIG MISTAKE! Instead of being filled with many recipes, it is filled with ads and "lifestyle" features that have nothing to do with cooking, much less light cooking. Buy the book.

This is my favorite cookbook by far. The Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe produces cookies that look and taste just like the full-fat variety.

Cooking Light is my best resource for acceptable healthy recipes. I would have preferred more of the classic recipes, but maybe I need to get the earlier edition.

What I liked best about the cookbook is the many cooking tips. There are a couple of gourmet recipes that I am anxious to attempt, specifically Baklava. There is a wide variety of types of dishes.

I have tried several other cookbooks, but I always come back to the tried and true, Cooking Light, Heart Association and Weight Watchers.

I have had this cookbook for a while. I pulled it from the shelf to do this review and noticed as I skimmed through that many recipes I have tried and made notations on looked similar to this "Eh...", "I would rather eat cardboard", "Sorta bitter and uninspiring". Very few "Yums".

That said, the fine points of the book are: The pictures are lovely and mouthwatering. The calorie/fat/protein/carbs (etc) are listed for each recipe (just like the mag). There are some fun and interesting tips sprinkles throughout the book like "ways to shape rolls" and "Troubleshooting creme caramel". If you are a novice cook there are plenty of cooking, chopping, folding type-instructions. They also do "Classic Makeovers" of recipes that are usually calorie and fat bombs to a more trimmed down version showing each version's recipe side by side. That can be a good way to see plainly where a cook can trim fat, replace fat with less caloric subs, etc.

Now for the less than great news: Some of the recipes are just plain old normal recipes. Meaning not light. Almost every bread recipe can be found in a regular cookbook. No change. Why bother including it in a light cooking book? Some of the recipes do not seem particularly light. I found myself saying over and over: "109 calories for this rank cookie? 314 calories for 1/16th of a very mediocre cheesecake?" One more thing is that meat browning is done (like with the 500 calorie lamb shanks) with NO FAT, completely relying on non stick. No spray, no 1/2 ts oil... NO! That is no way to cut fat. Why bother eating that fatty cut? It makes me laugh. Finally, a few recipes were unclear. For instance, there is a barbecued pork chop recipe that mysteriously loses half the sauce. Unacceptable.

This is a great book. The recipes are excellent and are a compilation of the Cooking Light magazine. No need to subscribe to the magazine unless you want more than light cooking recipes. Don't get me wrong, the magazine is great too but has more articles on things other than cooking. I've made several recipes from this book and defy anyone to see the difference between the fat recipes and the ones offered in the book. I love Cooking Light.

I love this cookbook. Cooking Light does a fantastic job of creating fun, delicious recipes that are healthier but not flavorless or extremely unrealistic. I've had this cookbook for years and can almost always find a recipe to satisfy a craving or urge to branch out. It has a lot of recipes for great staple dishes, and a lot of more creative and fun dishes. I have give this cookbook as a gift several times and it is always a success. I consider it a must-have.
