First off, truth be told, I'm not a man at all. I just happen to be a very picky adult woman who can't stomach eating whole vegetables. Health issues spurred me to make some changes in my diet, namely to include more vegetables and fiber. This was a tall order for me, but I'd been hearing rave reviews for books like these and Jessica Seinfeld's "Deceptively Delicious" which make a point of including disguised vegetables pureed seamlessly into the foods I happen to love--which also tend, very often, to be incredibly bad for you. This was a strategy I could live with. If it worked, so much the better; if it didn't, at worst it would be a failed experiment in cooking (to add to my always-growing pile of such experiments).

I looked into the original Sneaky Chef, this book, and several others of the same type before settling on this "men's health" edition, not only because it addressed my own problems but also because I probably eat more of what Lapine calls "man food" than most men I know. The introduction, where she talks about the different emphases men and women place on food and the tastes, sights and textures that appeal to them, I swear could've been written about me.

This was what sold me on the book: though there seems to be little love lost between Lapine and the eating habits of what she calls the "typical man", she writes not without understanding. In fact, simply trying a few of the recipes proves that she does, in fact, have a consummate understanding of what makes foods delicious to men AND women as well as what would make them healthier.

OK-I'm not a big fan of most veggies....and the types of food I like best; burgers, wings and doughnuts aren't considered particularly healthy but taste great!
So I was surprised to learn that my wife had been preparing some of my favorite meals with a slight twist with recipes from LaPine's new book. These recipes use less salt, sugar and contain less fat not to mention the added nutrition of fresh fruit and vegetables so it's great for me and the kids too. If anything, the food actually tastes better. Thanks and keep the recipes coming!

I'm opting for a family lifestyle change & this book is a fantastic tool! My 12-year-old son doesn't like food simply because he doesn't think he likes it. So for testing week at school, I sprung the chocolate french toast on him! He saw me pureeing blueberries the night before so he asked if the toast had blueberries in it. I just ignored the question by asking, "Do you not like blueberries?" He answered "no" and then continued to shove the breakfast down. I had to hide under a blanket to keep from laughing - he was eating not only blueberries, but spinach and whole wheat bread too! After school, he asked if I could make it for him the next day because it was the BEST FRENCH TOAST EVER! I even found out he was comparing his breakfast to his friends' breakfasts at school! What a hoot! I think I'll pass this recipe on to their moms!

I am a big fan of Missy's first book - we make the Cocoa Choc Chip pancakes (featuring spinach and blueberries) every week. I didn't think she could possibly surpass the original - she has. There are so many amazing recipes in this book that I can't wait to try! She has come up with a version of every "manly" favorite out there! Boosted Buffalo Wings - Top Banana Waffles - Slaw & Potato Salads - Onion Rings - Grilled Chicken Satay w/Peanut sauce - Chili - Burgers - Halftime Snacks - even Molten Choc. Cake! I'm off to make a grocery list so I can start cooking some new sneaky favorites!

On the evening that the new book arrived, my picky five year old daughter was disappointed when I didn't make something for dinner using the new cookbook. She loved the recipes in the first book and couldn't wait to try some of the new ones. So far we've tried both waffle recipes, stuffed french toast, manicotti, marinated beef, the bacon and cheese mashed potatoes, and the chocolate volcano cake. They are all easy and taste great.

Exceptionally planned, researched well, and with greater breadth, this book is definitely as good (if not better) than the first book. My husband even gave the nod for the french toast and manicotti which contains tofu (which he normally detests). Although aimed at the man of the household, my kids have already tagged some meals for me to try. Lots of new suggestions, including a lengthy section on snacks. I can't wait to try more!

My man has never been the problem in the veggie-eating department; it's *me* who's the problem. I have such a powerful aversion to veggies that I just *can't* eat them. Even when they taste exactly like the dish that they're in, my illogical aversion makes it impossible for me to choke them down. But tonight, I ate chili that had cauliflower, zucchini, broccoli, spinach, and peas in it--and it looked and tasted just like any "normal" chili I'd ever eaten. Not only did I eat it, I *enjoyed* it, which is just as important. There's only so long one can keep eating things one doesn't enjoy, but if they taste good . . .

If the rest of the recipes in this book are as good as that one, then this book could be literally a life-saver for me. (I didn't know how I was going to get my cholesterol level down when I couldn't eat veggies!)
