So...if you are wondering if her recipes are right for you, this is a great place to start. With just 50 recipes, it's a small book of recipes but they are made into recipe cards and are quite cute...because of that, they are a fun stocking stuffer or gift set for any dieter or waist watcher or Weight Watcher! :-)
That said...(and here's what dinged it for me and took away a couple stars)
If you are already a raving fan like myself, these will ALL be repeats for you. I've made the "Ate layer dip" (her version of 8 layer dip) and the mini pigs in blankets and red velvet insanity cupcakes, and the eggs bene-chick, and the Lord of the Onion Rings and the hungrygirlfredo etc etc etc many times before(All good recipes)...so you should know...THESE ARE ALL RECIPES TAKEN FROM THE FIRST TWO BOOKS AND MADE INTO RECIPE CARDS. Although there were a couple that are from her website. The other cookbooks (HungryGirl cookbook and 200 under 200) are quite extensive and filled with recipes--so if you know you'll like her cooking from seeing her on tv, go for those instead. You'll get more bang for your buck.
If, instead, you are totally unfamiliar to her or just want 50 of her recipes in recipe card version...good place to start...You might should also know she is processed-food friendly.Read more ›
I think these recipe cards are a cute addition to her collection although I am sad to say that the few that I have looked at are not *new* recipes. "Big Fat Blueberry Muffins" and "So Low Mein with Chicken" are recipes that are in her "HG 200 under 200" book. Also, the "Magical Low-Calorie Margarita", "Eggs Bene-Chick" and "HG's De-Pudged Pigs in a Blanket" as well as several others that I have picked up are from her first "Hungry Girl" book.
It will take me a little while to go through all 50 recipe cards to compare them to both her previous books, but so far, everyone that I have picked up have been in one or the other, which disappoints me, alot!
The recipe cards retail for [...], which I only paid [...] (Thank you Amazon). If they had been all new recipes they would have been well worth the full price! After giving this some thought,I am going to go ahead and give this product 5 stars because it is cute and is color coded, which makes it easy to flip through and find the cards you want, and there are three extra "note" cards that are helpful.(Hungry Girl Staples, Hungry Girl's Recommended Products, and Hungry Girl Chew the Right Thing".)
They are worth what I paid for them, but if all 50 are just repeated recipes that I already own from her first two books, and they look to be just that, then I would never have bought them.
The recipes are broken down into five categories with about 10 recipes in each:
1. Morning Makeover Madness
2. Chocolate Fixes and Sweet Treats
3. Fast Food and Restuarant Favorites
4. Around the World
5. Party Recipes and Crowd Pleasers
There is also a list of recommended products and Hungry Girl staples.
For those of you who have all the Hungry Girl books and get her newsletter regularly, you will probably want to skip this deck.
For someone who is just starting to changeover to a more healthy lifestyle or wants to see what Hungry Girl is all about, I would say this is a great recipe card deck to purchase. This also would make a great stocking stuffer, or a birthday gift with all the ingredients provided for one of the recipes.
