Library JournalEach of Hughes's entrees contains no more than 250 calories; salads, vegetable dishes, and desserts no more than 50 each. Tired of cooking separate ``diet meals,'' the author devised these low-calorie (though not necessarily low-sodium or low-cholesterol) recipes intended to satisfy her nondieting family as well as herself. Although the book opens with a collection of sugar-free gelatin salads, many of the ideas aren't bad; while some of the entrees may seem a bit skimpy to nondieters, others are generous. Busy family cooks may find this an easy way to put together diet menus; for larger collections.
Hundreds of tempting recipes. Each entree contains no more than 250 calories per serving; each salad, vegetable, and dessert only 50 calories.
