The magazine's unique staff of field editors is made up of more than 1,000 experienced home cooks located in each state and Canadian province, who regularly share recipes, well-liked menus and kitchen tips. Taste of Home is published six times a year and has five sister magazines, Simple & Delicious, Slow Cooker, Appetizers, Cooking for 2, and Healthy Cooking.

She tries to tell me how healthy all of our eating has become, and I appreciate her efforts, and this book. But let's face it, diet books are a dime a dozen. This is more. It's a GREAT FOODS BOOK. First comes a tasty recipe, then they've made it nutritional and heartily healthy. Diabetic needs are addressed too. I've told my wife, "Use this book for a year. Toss out the others. These are man-awesome and healthy. A winner on my plate."
I enjoy sitting with my wife and using the color photos to pick out a different recipe. I've suggested we try next the dessert "caramel apple pizza" because it looks like a treat you'd buy at the State Fair.
She was delighted that the book came with a FREE cooking magazine. And she loves the free access to online weight-loss tools. The front of this book offers tips on weight loss techniques that are man-woman-family friendly. Tips aligned with what my cardiologist suggests. The index is excellent for home-grown food. Example: if you have abundance on squash, go to the squash index and see the list of recipes, including portion calories. Or there is the traditional recipe name index as well.
It's not often that a MAN falls in love with a cookbook. Here is a winner. Buy it, gals, and delight your man, even if he doesn't want to know he's eating healthy.
Of course if you don't like your hubby, or you enjoy him as Portly Pig, buy another cookbook.
My babe (we're in our 60s) wants me around a bit longer, God bless her.
Then after a not-so-good cholesterol test this year I decided it really was time to get serious about cooking healthy. This was one of several books I bought to help us get back on track. And this time the experience has been totally different!
This book contains not just a few really tasty recipes but loads of tasty recipes. The pecan-crusted chicken, crab-stuffed chicken breasts, light-but-hearty tuna casserole, buffalo chicken burgers and tortellini with salmon-ricotta sauce all get high marks from us. The easy chicken Alfredo is to die for (made with cottage cheese and evaporated milk--amazing!) There are a few other recipes, like the mock Manicotti that were good but could be improved with tweaks (way too spinachy ... my kids were afraid) but overall this cookbook really delivers on its promise of healthy food that tastes great.
Just a few of my favorite recipes:
Zucchini Fritters (baked, not fried of course)
Hot Buttered Coffee
Simon's Famous Tuna Salad
Open-faced Salmon Sandwiches
Loaded Mexican Pizza
