    Delicious looking recipes but the layout has an issue, January 19, 2012

    I just purchased this book, and disclosure: I have not cooked from it yet. I will update my review if I remember to and have more to add.

    The main reason I’m posting is to let people know that the binding is tight and the ingredient list is in small font size sitting right next to the binding, making it hard to see and read. You have to really crank the book open and press on the binding to stay open to get a good look at the list of ingredients and be able to cook from the book. And the problem with that is that the book is not terribly expensively made and the binding cracks when you press it open enough to read. Even in the book store, where I actually bought my copy, copies of this book for sale were already damaged at the binding just from people perusing the book pre-sale. To me, that’s a bad sign re: actual book quality. If the publishers could simply have switched the layout so that the ingredients were listed on the outside of the page, it would have been much better for the user.

    I decided to buy anyway because the recipes look good, though I also warn you, they have a lot of ingredients per dish – maybe 15-20 on average, perhaps many of them flavorings and spices (the trade-off, I suppose, with low-fat cooking). Many, many appetizing close-up photos of the dishes in the book, and the font size for the recipe directions is reasonable enough (though also somewhat small). All ingredients and directions are provided in black font (and are easily readable against the white paper, despite being in small font size). All recipes come with a little description under the title. As far as I can tell in scanning the book, the recipes do not rely on or include “weird” ingredients (which I abhor).

    If you are truely concerned about eating healthy this is the book for you. These are not bland dietetic recipes but wholesome delicious salads, pasta dishes, soups, main course dishes and desserts. On pages 10 and 11 this book illustrates the Mayo Clinic healthy weight pyramid including a chart listing how many daily servings from each catagory you should strive to eat. Each recipe includes a chart listing how many servings it provides for each pyramid catagory as well other statistics such as calories, protein, carbs, cholesterol and more. After using this cookbook you will become familier enough to relate the charts and pyramid to your own recipes and/or other cookbooks. I was a meat and potatoes kinda guy most of my life but not long ago I found out there were many more flavors out there then meat and potatoes. I highly recommend this cookbook to all. I recieved this book quite promptly and in great shape. Would deffinately order from this seller again.

    I enjoy some recipes in here, but mostly as inspiration. I have learned that I don’t like a lot of the recipes in this book as it’s written, but I’ve found ways to alter them to make them taste better without sacrificing nutrition. Anyone even remotely kitchen savvy can turn these recipes into family favorites without further expanding your waist line.
