    Highly recommended

    This is a great book with a ton of easy-to-make recipes. The good news is you don't need a ton of formal culinary training to make stuff that tastes great and is actually good for you.

    Great Tips and Tricks

    I've made a couple of the recipes - roasted tomato soup, carrot soup and chicken with lemon and rosemary. They were quick to do (critical for me) and surprisingly tasty. But my favorite thing about this book are the tips. On the bottom of every page there are these "skinny tips" and "kitchen tips" which give great ideas on how to make things low cal without losing flavor or to improve your skills and knowledge. Worth it just to read these.

    Fantastic!

    The photos make your mouth water. The great thing about the book is that it reinforces "You don't have to deprive yourself to look good!" And you feel as though the recipes are more indulgent than they really are. The tips are helpful in keeping yourself satisfied, and not looking for more. Highly Recommend.

    You Can Trust a Skinny Cook is an amazing cookbook! I'm so happy I tried it ...

    The recipes are innovative and simply delicious! The author is witty, creative and instructive in her narratives. One of my best purchases in 2011!!

    It's okay...

    I was very excited for the book. But after going through it there was only two recipes, I wanted to try. Very disappointed. This book is nothing like "Pretty Delicious". (Another book written by a 'cook yourself thin' chef. ) I think I'm going to ask for a refund.
