Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This collection of fast and flavorful dinner dishes lives up to its title, sharing entrees that can be prepared in 45 minutes or less, culled from EatingWell's "Healthy in a Hurry" column. Dishes like Chipotle Flank Steak Tacos with Pineapple Salsa, and Roasted Cod with Warm Tomato-Olive-Caper Tapenade are accompanied by sidebars giving active and total cooking times and per serving nutritional analyses. Notes indicate if a dish is "heart healthy," "low carb" or "high fiber" (almost every dish falls into at least one category). Whole foods, fresh herbs, low-fat dairy, "good" fats (olive and canola oils) and a few carefully selected frozen and canned goods are the kinds of ingredients called for, and a solid introduction tells readers how to stock the pantry, refrigerator and freezer, as well as plan menus. A chapter on sides gives ideas for preparing salads, grains and vegetables, including a piece on "how to cook 20 veggies" five simple ways each. With an index that sorts meals into "Healthy Weight," "30 Minutes or Less" and "Family Friendly" categories, and frequent full-color photographs, this book is not only easy to cook from but a pleasure to use.

My first reaction to this book was one of delight. I thought, this is one cookbook I'm actually going to use and not just read for the pleasure of it! Time would have to tell if that prediction would come to pass.

I've now had this book in my kitchen for over 6 weeks now and every week's meal plan has featured at least two recipes from this book. The "Healthy in a Hurry" concept is an excellent one for modern mothers struggling to prepare wholesome meals with little time to spend in that short window between the end of the workday and the 6:30pm hockey practice. As the book's subtitle suggests, the recipes are appropriate for quick and simple everyday suppers. There is not much here that you'd want to serve for special occasions, but the book is a great resource for an almost endless variety of tasty weekday meals that can be whipped up in minutes.

The author takes his inspiration from a wide variety of culinary traditions. Meals are inspired by Korean, Thai, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Italian, Southwestern, Indian, Greece and North African cuisines. Approximately two thirds of the 150 recipes are accompanied by full-color photos. Each recipe provides information such as prep and cook time and nutrition information, as well as stating whether the recipe is high in fiber, low in carbs, or appropriate for a "healthy weight" lifestyle. "Nutrition Bonuses" are provided for recipes that contain 15% or more of the daily value of specific nutrients.

Aside from the recipes, the book is divided into helpful sections that can be useful in meal planning such as stocking your pantry, seasonal menu suggestions and vegetarian meals. Three sections provide ideas, not strictly recipes, for sauces, sides and desserts "in a hurry.

Format: Hardcover
I love to browse through different cookbooks. I have quite a collection, and usually go to the library to find new recipes to try before I decide to purchase the entire book. I normally look for 3 things in a cookbook, besides delicious recipes that will work for my family. This includes:
1) Pictures of more than 3/4 of the recipes (Color pictures are the best)
2) A spiral binding, or at least one that easily lays flat
3) New & innovative recipes that have ingredients I can easily find at a grocery store

I also prefer if the cookbook lists all of the nutrient information including sodium, fat content, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates.

I picked up this book to find new ideas to make a quick meal in-between working and shuffling the kids to various sporting and school events. Let's face it, eating out isn't always the best for you, especially since you cannot always tell exactly how much fat or sodium you are ingesting. I wanted some new recipes to try, but not necessarily a dish that would have my kids eyeing it suspiciously and saying "what is it?". I was not disappointed.

The book offered many beautiful color photographs, and the pages themselves were glossy and thick...not the cheaper paper that many cookbooks use. All of the nutrient information was included, along with a column called "Nutrient Bonus" that lets you know if the dish contained a lot of Vitamin C, Calcium, etc. The book was hard cover, but the binding was loose enough that my copy easily lays flat, another good bonus so that I was not always struggling to keep my page open. It also contains a rather large vegetarian section.

Some of our favorites include: Seafood Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette, Bistro Beef Salad, Vietnamese Style Beef & Noodle Broth, Mock Risotto, Chicken Stuffed with Golden Onions & Fontina, Almond Crusted Chicken Fingers, Beer-Battered Tilapia with Mango Salsa, and Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes. Enjoy!

This book is pretty good at quick light cuisine, but its not very original, like the magazine from which it comes, the ingredients are often very similar giving many of the recipes similar tastes. I have found at least four good recipes that my whole family have liked though- the turkey and peas is delicious and kid friendly. I recommend buying the magazine first- Eating Well, and then deciding on the book.

Format: Hardcover
I have amassed a collection of more than 30 cookbooks since I began trying to eat healthily and lose weight a couple of years ago. Since cooking was new to me, I needed cookbooks that were healthy but also featured easy recipes with ingredients I can find and afford. I have several favorite cookbooks, including some from the Weight Watchers label, but this one (the newest one to my collection), has now become my all-time favorite. Why?

1. It has thick, glossy pages and lots of color photos. That makes it a joy to flip through while you daydream about what to make next.

2. Everything I have made has been delicious. So far, I have made: Greek Lemon and Rice Soup (I added chicken thighs), White Beans, Spinach, and Tomatoes over Parmesan Toasts (I used kale since this was during the spinach scare), Tofu Cutlets Marsala, Sweet and Sour Tofu, Japanese Chicken-Scallion and Rice Bowl (couldn't be easier and tastes authentic), Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Creamy Chive Sauce (tastes like something you'd get in a nice restaurant), Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers (the best chicken fingers I've ever had and super low in calories), and Honey Mustard Chicken (classic, updated with the addition of capers). Each recipe was great. No disappointments!

3. The recipes feature fresh, wholesome ingredients, and the food is truly healthy.

4. My husband, who also wants to eat healthy but doesn't need to lose weight, finds the food filling and the portions hearty. This stuff is not "diet" food.

I highly recommend this book if you want healthy, delicious food that doesn't take forever to make or require a long list of exotic ingredients and kitchen tools. Beyond the food itself, it's just fun to browse through.
