Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
★ 09/15/2016
Low-calorie recipe blogger Homolka follows her popular Skinnytaste Cookbook with a new collection of 140 time-saving recipes that will hit all of the right notes with health-conscious readers who want to eat well with minimal effort. Simple and beautifully photographed dishes (e.g., cream of zucchini soup, slow cooker buffalo chicken lettuce wraps) are divided into "slow" and "fast" categories, meaning they can either be prepared in a slow cooker or in 30 minutes or less. With registered dietitian Jones, Homolka features trendy convenience cooking methods, such as one-pot meals, while also including nutritional analysis and icons denoting suitability for special diets. Owning a pressure cooker is not essential. VERDICT With its attractive design and easy everyday dishes, Homolka's latest may strike advanced cooks as too basic, but these recipes are excellent for novices. Expect demand.
