Read in January, 2008

My husband and I are loving this cookbook. I was looking for a chef who's approach and style called to me, and I found it in Ellie Krieger. No, the recipes aren't all low-cal/ low-fat, but it's the kind of fat that makes all the difference. We have actually lost quite a bit of weight since buying this book, and I haven't felt like I was dieting at all.

I wanted a cookbook that relied on fresh ingredients that I could easily use and buy (but I love that she often uses frozen and canned veggies to simplify), recipes that my southern meat-and-potatoes husband would also enjoy eating and cooking, and recipes that didn't take a sous-chef to make. I am a novice cook, but I'm expanding my repertoire by leaps and bounds with her book.

Some of our favorites include:
Fried Rice with tofu and Edamame (We make this every week)
Mac n' cheese
Grilled Pork Loin
Carrot Cake Cupcakes
Lemon Chicken
