Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Steinback, an author and magazine contributor who touts herself as "America's Healthiest Mom," here provides recipes designed to make the most of common kitchen appliances. While it's hard to imagine a busy mother who hasn't yet used her microwave or toaster oven to the fullest, Steinback's recipes are nevertheless creative and convenient. Her Spanish Rice and Seafood is colorful, with just a bit of spice, and her Creamed Zucchini Soup is appealing, especially in summer when zucchinis are everywhere. She makes use of common low-fat and low-sodium pantry items, and includes a shopping list for each recipe (which isn't truly necessary-who doesn't have black pepper in the house?). Not all of the recipes are winners: her Micro-Meatballs, for instance, contain grape jelly, and her microwaved fish dishes serve up limper fillets than their sauteed equivalents would-without any obvious gain in speed or healthfulness. Still, for people looking for quick and healthy dishes, this book gives numerous fresh ideas to serve at the end of a busy day. (June) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
