I haven't looked for any books since then, but this one caught my eye at a display at my local library, so I decided to check it out, and I am glad I did.
Strengths of this cookbook:
--The nutritional analysis for each recipe is shown in a big box beside each recipe. Looking at the numbers, all of the recipes seem to me to be very healthy, especially compared to nutritional information from other cookbooks I use.
---The recipes are simple to make.
---Many of the recipes are "from scratch" which generally speaking helps your cost and overall nutrition of a recipe.
---Simple slow cooker recipes are given. They say at the beginning of the slow cooker chapter that the recipes were designed for and tested with a 3 1/2 quart slow cooker. I have been using my 4 quart cooker for the recipes I have tried so far with no problems.
---I don't have much experience cooking meatless meals using tofu, TVP (texturized vegetable protein), or lentils, But there is a wonderful 5 1/2 page introduction section to the Vegetarian Main dishes chapter that explains in detail what these products are, where to find them, and how to use them in cooking. Although I have not tried these recipes yet, I really appreciated reading this introduction section and feel that she has given a lot of good information here that I can use if I someday want to try these recipes.Read more ›
