Cook Yourself Sexy is a wonderful cookbook - the recipes are straightforward and totally not intimidating. Unlike many other healthy cookbooks out there, the ingredients are easy to find, and most you probably already have on hand. Love her, love the recipes and love the uplifting intro. I wasn't expecting the cookbook to be empowering - just an added bonus!

I hate to leave a less then good review :( but I just got this book a month ago and I have been trying new recipes from it but have yet to have anything that was good enough to make again. I made the roasted corn and cucumber salad that was OK but not delicious enough to make again, and the same can be said for the tomatillo salsa, and roasted garlic lentil soup. After having not so good results with the recipes I did try, I will most likely not use the cookbook again. I think if you are looking for a healthy cookbook to help you loose weight or eat healthy you would be better off with Tosca Reno's Eat Clean cookbooks, I have had much better luck with those. The presentation of the book and the cute titles make it really fun, I only wish I could say the same for eating the food.

I was excited to receive this book but when I finally did and went threw the recipes, I wasn't impressed. A lot of the ingredients I needed was not something I would have on a regular basis. Some items I didn't even know where to purchase. I ended up turning around and selling the book on ebay.

I admit that some of these recipes might seem a little more on a foodie's level than on the level of someone just wanting to get started eating healthier but, these are great recipes. The Veggie Gyoza recipe was a huge hit with my carnivorous family. This book offers some really great suggestions for better flavoring while eating healthier. The main focus really is good ingredients. If you haven't ventured out into whole foods territory this is a good way to start. Kumai is lactose intolerant so the recipes don't depend on a lot of dairy products. The ingredients can get a little pricey but, she has alternative suggestions. I really enjoyed changing up the everyday routine in my cooking.

I found this while browsing through cook books, having never heard of the author before. I almost didn't pick it up, because I was afraid it would be a diet book, or a supplemental collection of recipes for a low carb, gluten-free, fad of the day diet. What nutritional advice is given is pretty much common sense- eat more whole foods, not as much meat and fat, that sort of thing. The recipes are things that you'd actually want to eat, and they aren't very complicated,so long as your cooking confidence goes beyond mixes and microwaving. There are many Japanese inspired recipes, so if you like Japanese food, this is a great book. There are also some Italian-American meals and general American cuisine.

I was excited to try the "sexy" recipes from this book. Unfortunately, I only found a few recipes that appealled to me as I flipped through the pages. I've made two of them (miso salmon and the red pepper and bean dip) and neither tasted particuarlly good - the salmon was OK and I threw out the dip.

If you are new to healthy eating, this might appeal more to you. For foodies who already eat healthy I would not recommend this book.

This is more of a book to read than a full cookbook. It does have some good looking recipes though.

This cookbook is slightly better than average. The illustrations are gorgeous, and Kumai's enthusiasm for good food is infectious. However, this isn't really a beginner's cookbook. Many of the dishes would come off as rather gourmet to those who are new to cooking. I'm very comfortable in the kitchen, but probably won't use these recipes as often as I would like. I'm not a fan of several of Kumai's favorite ingredients, and I also have food allergies which make a lot of her ingredient substitutions a no-go. Still, there were enough recipes I could use to make it worth the money. I do like that the book focuses on including more good foods into your diet, rather than eliminating the bad ones.
