This latest Cooking Light book does not disappoint. As the title suggests, these are recipes for dishes that most of us, if we're honest with ourselves, absolutely love - comfort food. You'll find timeless favorites ranging from chicken and dumplings and pot roast with mashed potatoes, to sweet rolls and key lime pie. And the best part is, the changes do not come from things like artificial sweeteners and unsatisfying tricks like using chicken broth to make mashed potatoes. The recipes call for real ingredients, used in sensible moderation and smaller amounts than the original recipes. Things like butter, sugar, and low and no-fat dairy products. If, like me, you prefer not to use the non-fat stuff, it's easily switched out for the reduced-fat variety, with little change in per-serving fat or calories.
The smart, sensible balance achieved by this book makes eating healthier a do-able goal, far easier than the fake ingredients and deprivation found elsewhere. Hungry girl? Nope, a satisfied woman. Highly recommended.
Every recipe has a picture which I love! The "5 Ways" segments where they have 5 different recipes for a common food like Mac & Cheese or French Toast are great. This is not your typical "healthy food cookbook" with obviously healthy recipes. There are no English muffin pizzas or applesauce filled muffins. These are real recipes with real ingredients that have been modified to be healthier. No one will notice the healthy substitutions you've made, so you can feel good about serving these recipes to your entire family and your friends; it's for both those interested in eating healthy and those looking for great taste.
I love Cooking Light Magazine, and this cookbook might be the best one they've ever compiled. I really can't say enough good things about this cookbook. Just do yourself a favor and buy this cookbook. Buy it for your friends. It would also be a great wedding or graduation gift for those just learning how to cook!
Recipes included are; breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides and desserts. The index can be a bit confusing, some dishes are listed under the main ingredient, some under what they are, such as chili or casseroles; but with some trial and error you can find the information you need.
Most of the dishes in here will become family favorites and if you do not tell them you are cooking light, they probably will never know the difference between these and the regular fat and calorie laden recipes.

Comfort food is my favorite, but not always the healthiest. These recipes are very tasty and moderately healthy. Also, not expensive to prepare.Published on April 8, 2013 by ItalGal
