Overview

Award-winning nutritionist and best-selling author Evelyn Tribole uses the same straightforward format readers loved in her best-selling Healthy Homestyle Cooking (now with nearly 700,000 copies in print), expertly trimming the calories and fat from more than 150 scrumptious desserts. Her easy Black Forest Brownies and Very Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake are truly desserts to die for, while Crispy Orange Lace Cookies bake in 4 minutes and have only 40 calories each. Gorgeous full-color photographs illustrate that these healthy treats look every bit as good as they taste. A nutrition scorecard gives before-and-after information on calories, fat, and cholesterol; flavor and health tips are sprinkled throughout; and helpful indexes categorize recipes according to fat and calorie content. "Best of all," the editor in chief of Shape magazine writes in the book's foreword, "Evelyn does not compromise in the taste department." As proof, her low-fat muffins placed second out of seventy in a Washington Post taste test.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Dieters can now have their cake and figure too, thanks to award-winning nutritionist Tribole (Healthy Homestyle Cooking). Drawing from her monthly "Recipe Makeover" column in Shape magazine, this collection features a Nutrition Scorecard for each recipe that demonstrates how the fat and calories have been slashed (e.g., replacing butter with buttermilk, cream with nonfat yogurt). Pecan Bars, originally said to contain some 303 calories and 18 fat grams per serving, plummet to 148 calories and 6 fat grams; a Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake drops from 629 to 306 calories per serving. Recipes using such convenience foods as cake mixes, baby food, store-bought cookies and pie fillings will appeal to hurried cooks; the recipes relying less on commercial products will please other readers. Within the familiar chapter headings (Brownies, Cheesecakes, Frozen Desserts) are offered Black Forest Brownies, Grasshopper Mint Pie, Hazelnut Mousse, Cranberry Citrus Bundt Bread, Cappuccino Raspberry Cake and Pumpkin Cheesecake. The appendix includes charts for reducing quantities and making substitutions. This accessible cookbook aptly demonstrates that the words "diet" and "sacrifice" need no longer be synonymous.

Library Journal
The latest collection from the prolific Ojakangas (Light Muffins, LJ 5/15/95) includes new light desserts and muffins as well as lots of breads and other baked goods. Some are entirely new; others are lighter versions of favorite recipes. Ojakangas uses some nonfat dairy products and fruit purees to replace high-fat, calorie-laden ingredients, but she doesn't attempt to fiddle with rich, gooey treats such as fudgy chocolate brownies, believing some indulgences are best left unadulterated and reserved for special occasions. Ojakangas is a reliable and experienced baker, and her book is recommended for most collections. Tribole (Healthy Homestyle Cooking, Rodale, 1994) writes the "Recipe Makeover" column in Shape magazine. Here she presents lightened dessert recipes, with "before" and "after" nutritional analyses for the traditional version and the new one. Some of these seem to exemplify the type of "recipe torture" Ojakangas refers to and avoidse.g., a Peanut Butter Cheese Pie that substitutes pureed nonfat cottage cheese for cream cheese, a gelatin-milk combination for heavy cream, and peanut butter and jam for butter in the crust. But if you need one more low-fat dessert book, readers on low-cholesterol diets may find Mile-High Sundae Pie and Triple-Layer German Chocolate Cake tempting, whether or not these deliver the taste of the real thing.
