    Well Worth It

    This book has great recipes that are easy to make. I bought it mainly for the Jamba Juice recipes, but it has so many others that my family loves, I've made plenty of the recipes. The ingredients are mostly easy to find. This book is worth every penny, and it's a fair price to begin with!
