I guess if you have a sweet tooth and are trying to find healthier (although, I wouldn't call these healthy - there's lots of evaporated cane juice, which is still sugar) recipes, this might be a fine cookbook. But I was looking for healthy savory snacks and the few that were listed were really basic and obvious...crackers with melted cheese? Ummm...okay. The writing is fine and the tips seem helpful. I didn't TRY any of the recipes because they were all for sweets. For what I was looking for, i ...more

A snack cookbook that uses whole food ingredients. Not exactly _healthy_ across the board, but healthier than many alternatives available.

Some of the recipes are naturally gluten-free. (A handful are specially gluten-free, but that means they're heavy on rice, and I'm moving away from that.) In many, the sugar content is too high so that will have to be modified for me.

Having said that though, there are some that caught my eye that I'm going to give a try, such as:

Usually, snacks are evil. In the case of this cookbook, they all seem pretty tasty and healthy. The Wholesome Junk Food Cookbook is a great resource for people like me, who enjoy sweets every now and then, but are seeking alternative ways to enjoy them without blowing your healthy eating plan. With recipes from granola, cakes, muffins, smoothies, to homemade ice cream -- they have every sweet tooth covered. I will definitely be adding this book to my collection this summer.

Enticed by the photos and the title, I checked this one out but was kind of disappointed by it. Not many new ideas here...use honey, whole wheat flour, unrefined ingredients, etc. However, she did suggest making smoothies and freezing them in popsicle molds; why didn't I think of that?? I now have blueberry-strawberry-banana smoothie popsicles in my freezer. Yum!

Some extremely simple recipes with only a few ingredients, like Lemon Kale Chips. Butternut Squash Nuggets. Yum.

But some recipes get more complicated and a lot require something called "evaporated cane juice crystals." Sounds like a fairy tale ingredient!

This book sounds like a good idea, but most of the ingredients are stuff I would have to buy special. Considering how often I grocery it up, I don't think this is the book for me. Maybe when I become independently wealthy and hang out at home all day?

Best recipes ever...try the vanilla ice cream and definitely make the chocolate sauce. We use half maple syrup, half agave... yum! Who needs Hershey's?
