This book isn't anything special. There are a few recipes that are new but they copied all the ones out of the book that comes with the cooker.
The Everyday Halogen Oven Cookbook, by nutritionist Sarah Flower, provides a host of delicious and healthy recipes for all users-beginners, intermediates, or advanced-to enjoy without spending hours to perfect. What's especially unique about this cookbook, and separates it from the rest, is its implementation of the halogen oven. The halogen oven is perfect for those who live alone or for whipping up a quick bite to eat. A statistic on the back cover of the book states that the halogen oven can cook up to 40% faster than a conventional oven, and basically executes the same functions: baking, grilling, defrosting, roasting, and steaming. Author of other cookbooks like Live More Spend Less, Eat Well Spend Less, and Slow Cook, Fast Food, Sarah combines her expertise in nutrition with delicious meals to provide recipes that are healthy, efficient (time-wise), and enjoyable by the entire family. Chapter One is entirely devoted to learning how to use and maximize the features of the halogen oven. The next few chapters discuss everything from snacks, potatoes, meat, fish, vegetarian dishes, desserts, and cakes; there is something for everyone. More importantly, her nutritionist self shines brightly at the end, where she has developed an in-depth four-week meal plan for meat and fish diets, and a two-week meal plan for vegetarian diets. Each week is broken down into a day-by-day account of meals. Also, there is an extensive list of necessary cupboard essentials, such as olive oil, paprika, mixed herbs, and red wine. Some of the most delicious, yet healthy recipes presented in the book include Baked Cinnamon Apples (p.191), Roasted Pumpkin Soup (p. 159), Potato Cheese and Spring Onion Tortilla (p. 49), Stuffed Trout (p. 125), and there are many more. Her step-by-step narrative style makes a connection with the reader, and makes it easier to understand and use the recipes. Sarah Flower's The Everyday Halogen Oven Cookbook is the perfect for any kitchen, a thoughtful gift for the new bride, and great for young people-particularly college students who would like a quick and handy way to enjoy a healthy diet.
