This book is awesome. I often hate meal planning because what do you have with the main course. This book has side dish ideas as well as what order to do things in to have it all on the table at the same time. Also, it is healthy so I know I will be able to feed my family and not have to put all that time consuming thought into making sure all the food groups are covered. It also has breakfast/brunch plans.

I have not had a meal come out poorly from this book yet. It also has the nutritional breakdown for you right with each recipe, if youre keeping an eye on your calories. Delicious healthy recipes, every kitchen needs this book!

Love this cookbook. Fabulous selection of recipes that come together quickly. I love that it has menu suggestions for each recipe. Takes the guesswork out of weeknight cooking!

Have been using this cookbook exclusively to plan dinners since I got it about a month ago, and my husband and I have both lost weight and are eating delicious dinners to boot. The main recipes all suggest side dishes, so that you can plan entire meals, and everything is fresh and quick to prepare. Highly recommended!

I love the complete meal plans provided in this book. And if you go to myrecipes dot com you can sign up for the "Dinner Tonight" newsletter, which sends you a complete meal each day, right in your email. These are all low-fat/low-cal and healthy meals. I've made about 30 of the recipes so far and they all come out tasting absolutely amazing! You'd never know they were good for you! On Sunday, I just go through the book and pick out five recipes, get the ingredients (usually a short list for each meal) and I make a grocery list. Since it's just hubby and I and most of the recipes make 4 or more servings, we have it for dinner and then again for lunch the following day.

This is my 'go to' light cookbook. I've tried many of the recipes and have yet to be disappointed. They're easy, relatively quick and big on flavor. My husband, who hasn't embraced my healthy cooking as heartily as I'd like, has given me the 'thumbs up' on every recipe from this book thus far. I highly recommend this cookbook.

Because I have subscribed to the Cooking Light magazine and know of its quality, I decided I just had to get this cookbook for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. The book is not hard-cover, but that does not mean it is not first-rate. It is still sturdy, and the full-color pictures accompanying each recipe are absolutely gorgeous and will make your mouth water! It has recipes for everyday dinners throughout the year and also a few special occasion dinners. Unlike most cookbooks, the recipes are not isolated; each one comes with a suggestion for a complete menu featuring that recipe, which certainly helps with meal planning. In addition, the recipes are healthful ones and can all be prepared in a short time, making it convenient when the cook has a day job and doesn't want to spend all evening in the kitchen. My son and daughter-in-law both love the book and are enjoying trying out new recipes.

Normally I don't write reviews on material unless it's very very good or very very bad. This cookbook falls into the very very good category. I was first taken back with the presentation of the material, very well done. Then it offers menus for each dish, no more throw together meals and they are nutritionally sound, well balanced and highly nutrient based, which I love. The recipes I've encountered have been high in fiber, I would like to see more working with whole grains to meet the servings per day of whole grains, but that's okay with the introduction of Whole Grains Everyday Every Way. Then you can build a well round meal plan for your family or give it to people who are interested in weight management that's healthful. Of the recipes my family and I have tried, there has been no complaints. Which is truly amazing, especially with introduction of some new foods that they may not be familiar with. I would actually recommend this cookbook to people, it's well laid out, easy to understand, uses regular ingredients, tastes good and is nutritionally sound. Well Done.
