Just what I needed to get me cooking again!,
This review is from: Cook Yourself Thin: Skinny Meals You Can Make in Minutes (Paperback)Where can I start? I bought this book thinking that all the recipes will probably be like all the other diets books, tasting OK and passable enough for me to stick to lose a few pounds - HOW WRONG WAS I??
This book is lovely, the recipes are easy to follow, the ingredients are easy to find and each recipe doesn't include a list of ingredients that are longer than your arm, unlike most recipe books. Therefore the recipes are also affordable.
This is a must for anyone trying to lose weight without starving themselves or even who's just trying to eat healthily. The recipes are easily adapted to put your own spin on them and there's something for everyone. It's got me loving cooking again. So far I have not even felt like I have been dieting at all, I have enjoyed everything and have even had the odd guilt free bar of chocolate! It's all about weight loss through making healthy changes this summer. [...]

This review is totally correct in my opinion and humerous to boot! The recipies are simple and delicious - you really don't feel like you are dieting, and what made me giggle is the referral for a "great summer book" about becoming a "man magnet"! That was a big LOL! My husband would kinda frown on that, but I did get a laugh from it. IMO a 100% true review with humor some of us (like me) can get a kick out of --very light hearted review as well.. Kudos Loran G! Good Luck in your man hunt! Lol

I loved your comment, however I have to disagree a bit with your "easy to follow" note. The cheese in "Stuffed Shells" on p. 161 is all over the place; unless you are used to cooking a lot, some of these recipes are a bit difficult to follow.
