Great recipes with foods that won't weigh you down. I highly recommend this book. A great addition to any kitchen.

I have not yet had a chance to cook anything from this book, but there are some mouth-watering recipes that I have highlighted. The pictures in this book are helpful but are not that great. I picked this book because it also had some health benefits behind these recipes. These are homemade so you will need some time to make.

I received my copy via a Goodreads giveaway.
Though 'lighter' and 'comfort food' generally occupy different places in my mind, I was delighted by this collection of meals, due to their truly lighter-yet-comforting nature. I plan to pursue some of these recipes as soon as I'm done paging through the book, and ranking the meals.
The text is properly 'literate' (clear, readable), and the photos are very appealing. Highly recommended.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A book loaded with recipes for our well-loved comfort foods tweaked to make them healthier for us. The Sweet Potato Brûlée is amazing, and I am not ashamed to say that I have made it TWICE in the last week! Well worth having! Recommended.
