    Wow! What a great find!

    This is probably one of the best cookbooks I own. Taste of Home has come through again. Every recipe I have tried so far has been good to excellent. Guests who have enjoyed the meals I have prepared using the book have asked for the recipes, and upon looking through the book (which I always show them) decide they want a copy for themselves. I have bought five as gifts for family members so far, and plan to buy two more in the future for friends' birthays. In this day when everyone is trying to watch their diet, but most of us really don't care for "diet food", this really fills the bill. We get all the things we love to eat, but without all the calories. Also, the recipes are just plain healthier, even if you are not watching your weight, but just need to eat for better heart health,etc. Also, most of the recipes include a picture- which is something I really like. I have a Weight Watchers Cookbook that I hardly ever use because there are no pictures for me to see what the food will look like. Since I am not a visual person- lack of pictures can be a "deal breaker" for me.

    A diet book for the rest of us

    I showed this book to a co-worker the day it was delivered. She borrowed it over her lunch hour and returned it with dozens of recipes tagged with post it notes. She was so right! The recipes are organized by meal, and then sorted by general calorie count. Every recipe I have tried so far is excellent and easy. There are no particularly strange ingredients or strange uses of ingredients. The dishes are the sort that all members of the family can enjoy, and there are even sufficient vegetarian options. There are even real desserts! I loved the Seafood Soup, Spicy French Dip (I did back down on the quantity of jalapenos, though), and the White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies (which work well with dried cherries.) I'm really looking forward to trying just about everything in the book.

    Mind you, this book is not philosophically aligned with some of the more popular diets. Atkins style dieters won't find much in here that is worth their time, and there isn't much for South Beach dieters. The co-worker who borrowed it is doing Weight Watchers so I suppose it's okay with that one.

    There is a diet system detailed in the first part of the book but I think it's more common sense than a true diet system. For the rest of us, the ones who just want to lose weight without having to follow peculiar rules or eat strange combinations of things, this diet is perfect.

    Really fast delivery in good condition: LOVE THE BOOK

    I am so happy with the speedy delivery of this book. I love Taste of Home and get their magazine. I also have a large Taste of Home cookbook and love the recipes there. I have tried many of them. We (my family) are trying to eat lighter so I got this cookbook. I can't wait to try the recipes.

    Eating healthy

    This cookbook is great for anyone who is trying to be more conscientious about what they're eating. The great part is that the food still tastes great even though it is healthier. I love that the cookbook puts together possible daily meal plans. It makes eating healthy easier!
