Occasionally, I am asked to review various cookbooks and most of the time I refuse, but when I was asked to review Skinny Spices: 50 Nifty Homemade Spice Blends That Can Turn Blah Healthy Eating Into Flavor-Rich Delicious Dining, I thought I would give it a go.

The reason is two fronts. The author writes about the history of spices (something I am very interested in) as well as struggles with weight loss. I've had personal experience with the weight loss failures and successes. In 2010, I lost 60 lbs, but two years later I gained 40 of it back, and am fighting it again and have lost over 20 lbs of my 40 lb. goal.

That being said, I really enjoyed reading Klein's book. Although fairly easy to read, it was educational and interesting. I will probably keep my copy in my reference library to go back to for additional information as I prepare my own articles and presentations.

The spice blends are very diverse with international and domestic (U.S. influenced) flavors. The e-book creates a lot of links to recipes that any culinary enthusiasts would welcome. Each recipe also contains the nutritional data and nutrient exchange that many are looking for when planning their meals and are very Weight Watcher/Medifast/Slimgenic friendly.

As a cook, I am looking forward to trying many of the featured recipes and recommended spice blends. If you have a chance, take a look at the book. It's worth the read!

I have owned this book for several years (maybe 10 years?) and I use it over & over. The blends are thoughtful and exciting. The book is titled "skinny spices" but please don't wait until you're on a diet to try them. They are wonderful blends and dry rubs for vegetables & meats. We all need a little more spice in our lives!

I recently got my copy of "SKINNY SPICES: 50 Nifty Homemade Spice Blends That Can Turn Blah Healthy Eating Into Flavor-Rich Delicious Dining" because it sounded like a great idea - skinny spices! As a Weight Control Expert coaching and teaching people how to get in control of their weight eating real food, I thought it was a great idea to put together a book on spices.

Often people go for the calorie-laden additions to their meals because they want to make it more exciting and less bland. They (including me!) often forget that spices will do the trick perfectly! Not only do they have very few calories and also a few hidden health benefits, spices actually make food taste far more interesting that a big lump of cheese or dollop of cream.

I like how this book gives some spice mix ideas, as well as explain what the popular spices are used for. That's something that's really handy when deciding which spice goes with what dish.

There were also a surprising number of recipes in the book, all well linked with hyperlinks (the great thing about ebooks!).

Overall, I'd get this book for the spices alone. I liked the recipes, but the spice ideas and combinations were what did it for me.

Worth having on your bookshelf (your virtual one!) if you like cooking, or need to make your dull and bland meals a heck of a lot more enjoyable.

I was really excited when I learned that I could master the use of Mexican and Latin American Spice Blends because as you all know I am always trying to learn new dishes for the hubby. Spices are really something that I am still learning to use. I never really know what all to do with them beyond the basic salt and pepper. This book however has more than just Mexican flavors there are also French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and, Sweet flavors among many others. The recipes are a bit surprising such as a Rice Pudding made from cauliflower which I did not try, and am not sure that I will. All in all this is a great cookbook for anyone wanting to learn more about spices and how to use them.

This book was given to me so I could facilitate my review. However all opinions are 100% my own.
