Great Recipes; Difficult to Read/See Them, By Barbara F. Backer 'Preschool Teacher for 20+ ...
February 20, 2008
Oy! I just received this cookbook. I have 3 others by this author, and I use them regularly. Her recipes are simple and DELICIOUS. However, I was disappointed when I opened this new book and saw that, while it is full of her eater-pleasing recipes, all recipes are printed in a light red ink that provides little contrast with the white page. The print font for the recipes seems to be smaller than in her other books, too. In other words, I find it difficult to read the recipes. I certainly won't be able to read them at an arms-length distance, like when I'm combining ingredients and want to see what to do next. Much as I want this collection of recipes, I may return the book. How could a publishing company make such a poor choice of print color?
If someone put a gun to my head and I had to pick one cookbook from my collection..., By Chandler
January 12, 2010
Well, if what I noted in my review title actually happened I'd be quite surprised because, after all, why would someone put a gun to my head in order to choose a cookbook???......but I digress...In all seriousness, I have quite a large collection of cookbooks and I've been organizing and reflecting on which ones I should give away and which I should keep and what I like about the ones I'd consider a favorite. And I'd say if I had to pick the things I want wrapped up in one book if I only could have one book, I do believe this cookbook contains them.Reasons why:This is a very extensive cookbook. It has 600 recipes so it covers whatever mood, taste, or timeframe I have to cook so it's one of the most comprehensive books I have for healthy recipes.These are fast, fabulous, and family-friendly...whether your favorite place is in the kitchen or you typically eat out daily, rarely cook, but have decided to get some healthier meals into...
This is my kind of cooking, By Happygal
September 10, 2007
I really loved this book. This is my kind of cooking. Easy to make, healthy and delicious. Since I liked her other books (especially Healthy Helpings) I pre ordered this book. I have already made some of the recipes and plan to use more soon. Each receipe has a cute short blurp about the recipe which is entertaining, and most have useful cooking tips.The ingredients are common stuff that I usually have on hand and makes good use of the food processor and microwave, but their use is not essential. This book also has great info on the glycemic index, glycemic load, heart healthy cooking and lots of useful kitchen infomation. Which makes it a great gift for a beginner or more experienced cook. You will use it for everyday and entertaining and no one will think of it as low fat and healthy.
