Not bad. At least 6 recipes I can't wait to try.

I'm skeptical and worried that she's a nutritionist who is advocating margarine (real butter can never be as bad as that scary stuff) but other than that the advice seems fairly sound. She "sneaks" lots of veggies into not-usually-healthy dishes and cuts the fat and calories.

(I'm not sure why she's SO OBSESSED with animal protein, though; there are maybe 3 or 4 vegetarian recipes out of like 70...)

I appreciate how she structured the serving sizes
At first glance, I thought "blah, another low fat cookbook with bland recipes." Then I decided to sign it out anyway, just to see. Then I found the buffalo-style chicken chili...and was roped in.

Great layout, great pictures, a variety of recipes.

Lowfat Cheesecake Fruit Dip - wonderful. I want to try this with cardamom instead of cinnamon.

Buffalo Chili - good...
Hummus - not so hot. I prefer the olive oil taste over the sour cream tang of greek yogurt.

Cocoa Almonds - my god, they
More pictures Please!!!

I know most authors do not want to take up page space with pictures, but this book includes pictures of ingredients, but not the finished food product. Help me out here people!

I found two recipes in this book to try and one has already been a huge hit. The recipes I chose also happen to have pictures...hmmmm, go figure

Recommends it for: people who love to cook
Great recipes full of flavor and light on calories! We will be adding a lot of these dishes to our list of faves and go-to dishes. She does a nice job of covering a variety of types of meals- breakfast, lunch, soups, dinner and snacks.
Would not recommend this book to vegetarians.I might make 2 recipes out of the whole book... I love Joy Bauer , her other books are so much better.
I love this cookbook. I've got it currently checked out from the library and have made 10 of the recipes. I plan on making every one.
One of my favorite low calorie cook books!! Every recipe is absolutely delicious, no seriously culinary experience required.
