The day this cookbook arrived, I showed it to a friend who is on a low-cholesterol diet; she liked the layout (nutritional information and photos) so much that I gave it to her. In return, she invited us for dinner the first time she used it. That meal was delicious, and I ordered another copy as soon as we got home. Last weekend I made three different recipes from the soup section, all of which were good. The Italian Vegetable Soup was particularly tasty, so I took some to a neighbor, who called almost immediately to ask for the recipe. (She and I are both in Weight Watchers, and this cookbook makes it easy to calculate point values.) Now she wants a copy, too. The format of the cookbook makes recipe selection simple for those who are watching their diet for one reason or another, the recipes are simple to prepare, and a number of them are easy to make ahead. This is a practical cookbook.

You cannot go wrong with Taste of Home. This cookbook is no exception. I have always loved Taste of Home, but when I recently started to try to lose some weight, I was hesitant to make any of the usual rich, tasty recipes. Then I found "Guilt Free". It came in the mail this week and I have already made three of the recipes - each were fantastic! I would highly recommend any of Taste of Home's many cookbooks, but if you are trying to watch your weight, "Guilt Free" is the book for you - it will not disappoint.

I despise cooking; moreover, I absolutely hate dieting. Imagine my surprise when I found a cookbook that appeared to provide both easy and low calorie, healthy meals. Can we say, "too good to be true"?

I took the chance and have been absolutely amazed! I've made a few dishes and a dessert from this book and they were extremely simple and tasty. I got my daughter interested in the book and now we're both ear-marking our next intended recipes with enthusiasm. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone else, regardless of cooking skill or intentions. I don't believe you need to be on a restricted diet to give this a shot -- you simply don't miss the ingredients that are usually so bad for us that they substitute or leave out.

Get this book! :)

I'm a big fan of Taste of Home publications. The pictures are great, and the recipes are easy to follow. The refried bean burrito recipe is definitely my favorite from this book, but there are a lot of other great recipes in this book, too.

This book is also nice because it calls for relatively common ingredients, and nothing too terribly expensive.

These recipes are delicious!!!! I have not been disappointed. This is not a book of truly "healthy" recipes. They contain wheat flour (gluten) and other ingredients that a true health nut won't appreciate. But for delicious comfort food that's a little lighter than usual, it's great.

This book has wonderful easy-to-prepare recipes that are on the healthy side. I was looking for a book that had "regular cooking" without needing to purchase obscure ingredients that I might only use once. I am not a chef and enjoy comfort foods but wanted to keep the fat and calories to a minimum.

Taste of Home always has the best recipes. The photos and nutritional information is there as well as the usual comprehensive "how-to's". I like how the book is organized and there is a tremendous amount of information on eating smart and eating well. This is a good one for the book-shelf and for everyday use!

I haven't tried many recipes yet, from this particular cookbook, but what I have tried is outstanding. The directions are clear, photos are always a plus and keep in mind these have already been tried and loved by the cooks who have submitted the recipe. I tend to gravitate toward the Taste of Home line or the Fix It series because they are submitted by cooks who have worked all the kinks out of the dish first.
