Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
Too often misunderstood and overused, the word "light" is here clarified by syndicated newspaper columnist Jones to mean not the absolute elimination of fat, calories, cholesterol, and sodium but rather their sensible reduction. This is actually a compilation of more than 200 revised recipes submitted by Jones' readers. Not all items seem classics, exactly, though Jones does include such favorites as beef stroganoff, aioli, Maryland crab cakes, manicotti, zucchini bread, and cheesecake, all streamlined and made "healthier." Some more unusual entries are wild rice soup, oat groat pilaf, breakfast pizza, tuna tamales, and molasses brownies.
