The restaurant section is helpful, but the recipes weren't my cup of tea. I'm more of a cook from scratch, not cook from cans, kind of girl. I can also figure out that using reduced fat cream cheese (or sour cream) instead of regular will cut calories.

If you are not a cook from scratch kind of cook this will be helpful, if you are you will be disappointed. ( )

I love this cute healthy cookbook. The restaurant and take-out section is especially handy when I am looking for something quick to eat at work. If anything stops me from making the recipes, it is the fact that most involve quite a few ingredients that are a little pricy if you're cooking for a family. But I suppose family cooking isn't really its target audience. Also, many of the recipes involve canned pumpkin, and I'm not sure if you've noticed, but this year, there is a pumpkin shortage and there is actually no canned pumpkin available at the grocery store. It seems inconceivable, in this modern era, for ingredients to be utterly gone. But pumpkin, alas, is not to be found this year. But back to the cookbook. It seems to succeed in making healthy cooking fun. It deserves a look if you're looking for something new and interesting to try. ( )

Definitely an averaging of 4-star qualities and 2-star qualities. On the one hand, there were some great ideas about adding healthier crunch to things, like with the fiber cereal and crushed rice cakes. The single-serving recipes were a refreshing change. Also some really good general restaurant tips in the back. On the other hand, there was much more use of chemicals and other processed items than I would be comfortable using. And the cutsie style gets old. ( )
