The recipes are excellent, but my favorite part about this cookbook is the way that the recipes are split into seasons so you are buying the vegetables and fruits that are currently at their best. Since we are in the winter season, one recipe I tried was the beef and mango lettuce wraps. My family has not ever tried mango before but there was not a morsel of food left when we were done eating. The recipes are also easy to make and do not require exotic ingredients. Love it.
I have combined this cookbook with an app called Lose It and in 5 days have lost 7 pounds.
Every recipe has a photo, every recipe (8 so far) has been wonderful and flavorful.
Keep this type of book coming!!
I haven't tried many of the recipes, but everything I've tried has been stellar - and easy to make! I brought the eggplant rollitini to a party where it was a big hit and my boyfriend loves the meatloaf with buttermilk mashed potatoes. We're going to be making those recipes a LOT.
Although Everyday Food magazine gets carried away with the specialty ingredients, this book is good for lighter fare. Although it is still difficult to make a lot of the recipes if you do not live near a Whole Foods market or other source for a lot of the ingredients, the recipes are easy and substitutions can be made.
First of all, I have to say that I have not made any of the recipes, so cannot verify how they taste. However, what I see in this book is that it is layed out well, with great pictures. The number of ingredients is not enough to put off some of us who don't want to spend all our time in the kitchen just for one meal and the nutritional facts are there for each recipe. No matter what your taste, there has to be something in this book to give you a new twist on some food item. Maybe a better way with a veggie, something dieters are always looking for. Buy it, you'll enjoy it.
