Editorial Reviews

Kim Blythe
Many of us tend to over eat and put on a few extra pounds during the holiday season so that is exactly why...I was so drawn by her view on creating a “non-diet” cookbook that allows you to eat the foods you love, without gaining those unwanted pounds!

    Excellent Cookbook

    I have around 50 cookbooks. As you can expect I am one cynical cookbook shopper. This book contains great recipes I couldn't believe until I bought it. The download is worth the 6 bucks for the cheese biscuits recipe alone. I read an interview with this cookbook's author online that caught my interest so I just had to see what all the fuss was about. The diet suggestions were ideas I can follow on a regular basis within my lifestyle. So far my favorite eating management is the weekend binge option!

    Loved 3 Recipes I Tried Last Weekend

    I was browsing in this book looking for bad health food. The big plus I discovered was none are gross. The cure for my overeating was I was uneducated how to overeat. After reading it, I was grateful how it was informative, and, lets me eat nonchalantly anything I want. Truth be told, my girlfriend made me buy it for myself. I, like most men, cannot cook, and, I am slightly overweight. I am getting to my goal weight slowly, but surely, 1 pound at a time, 4 pounds so far reading the advice here a couple weeks ago.

    Brilliant As Expected From Krystie

    Krystie Nicole is on her way to becoming the next Rachael Ray. As an owner of her other cookbooks, this third is everything I love about her cooking. The recipes always work. Not one has failed in my kitchen with ingredient flavor or guest happiness. The book makes sense for people like me that want approachable affordable good recipes in a well rounded cookbook without the umptity rich girl attitude. I knew exactly what my food was doing for my body thanks to her beginning. There is no getting around my admiration for her work. Five stars! She is my new imaginary girlfriend that found the key to my heart through my stomach!

    Mrs. Russin Rocks

    She knows the ins and outs of dieting on normal food! The recipes I read lent me clear instructions. Mrs. Russin makes cooking easy for me and beer is allowed on her cheat diet. Say no more.

    Works For Getting Girls!!!!!

    Shouldve been called The Diet Book for Bad Cook Men Who Want to Cook and Lose Weight. I got laid cooking from the recipes for the first time in two months. My new girlfriend loves the cocktail recipe I learned here, my friends like the sides, I like my burgers I learned.

    We're gonna do a March Madness party out of some food recipes, I like it really much. I lost a pound over a month.

    Hope to lose more. Been working out like a nutcase and have gained muscle I want to believe. I got enthusiastic cooking again.

    Special Ed wrote one negative 1 star review complaining she cannot function reading a caprese salad recipe and find enough froo froo oprah show magazine food pictures. Buddy, common sense tells you caprese salad's got the word salad in the name. It is mixed together using the ingredients listed. Popcorn gets popped in a bag at the precise cooking time. She tells all the important stuff for you. Did you notice that? You don't use the salad ingredients for building sand castles? Did you know how to read her other good food recipes? I'm a bad cook and I can understand her wham bam thank you maam writing style. I love the Diet book for this reason. It ain't a picture book. There's hundreds of good recipes there for men who want recipes plain view.

    I got a girlfriend with the food. So worth the money.

    Terrible! Absolutely terrible!

    Downloaded on Nook Color. No table of contents and graphics (food pyramid) overlays text on several pages. Even tried setting text to publisher default. No pictures for any of the recipes and the recipes are simply alpabetized. Yes, cocktails, main course, desert and snacks all simply listed. This is form, now we look at function. Think one sentence recipes listing ingredients and instructions. Picture a caprise salad recipe saying to put together tomatoes, olive oil and basil. How about popcorn? Put kernels in a paper bag and put in microwave. Seriously!?
