I've had minor issues with a few of the recipes. *The lemon-glazed blueberry muffins were on the dry side. *My son, when presented with a glass of carrot apple ginger juice, recoiled in horror at the smell (and I did too, to be honest). *The summer corn fritters, when made with 3 ears of corn, were mostly corn and very little batter; I'd reduce the amount of corn next time. *The beet-chocolate-walnut cookie recipe yields 16 cookies; I got 57. I have no idea how that happened. *The recipe for black bean cakes calls for bread crumbs, and I used panko bread crumbs. Not advisable! I could not get the mixture to adhere into a patty shape. When I tried to cook the sad bean piles I was able to form, the corn kernels and millet popped out of the skilled and flew all over the kitchen. On the plus side, the crispy bean cake crumbles were very tasty. So, use fresh bread crumbs for this recipe!
Still, I still love this book, and I might just try cooking my way through the whole thing!
The level of information is perfect. It's concise, manageable and clearly delivered and those who are just starting out on the journey to living healthier will not feel overwhelmed and bombarded. The authors have made it doable and inspiring. As for the recipes, they'll make you hungry and eager to cook. Plus, for any parents of school aged children, it's packed with fresh, easy, exciting and nourishing lunch box ideas.
It is a beautiful book and I am thrilled with my purchase. In fact, I have returned to purchase multiple copies as it makes a brilliant gift.
