This review is from: Cook This, Not That! Easy & Awesome 350-Calorie Meals (Paperback)
I've always enjoyed the "bottom 10" lists that Yahoo occasionally features by this author, so when I heard that there was a cookbook available, I immediately wanted it. Now that I have it, I'm not at all disappointed by what I find. I can't wait to try out some of the recipes in here. Some of them are such simple ideas that I honestly had never thought of before - I always knew that Greek yogurt, say, was really good for you, but I never thought about making a ginger syrup to go with it. Now that I know, of course, I'm salivating just thinking about it.
The ONLY thing that I might have liked added is point conversions for those of us who do the Weight Watchers plan. I plan on trying that yogurt with ginger sauce, but I'll have to calculate points for every ingredient I use, which is kind of a pain time-wise. But it's a very, very small complaint, and certainly not enough for me to give this anything but a good rating.
Very worth the money!
ETA, 12/16/10: First recipe tried was the hummus. It. Was. Freaking. Awesome.
12/19/10: Second recipe, the grilled cheese with sauteed mushrooms. FLAWLESS. I bet the third recipe will be a hit, too. :D
