This Cookbook is Great!

It sounds like this winter weather has many of you ready to warm up your kitchens! I have had several requests to recommend a healthy cookbook that has really good recipes, great photos and that's easy to use (I think I've got all the requirements down!)


Right now, I'm having so much fun making all sorts of new things out of So Easy: Luscious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Weekby Ellie Krieger. We all need new recipes from time to time to bring fun and variety into meals. We certainly don't want to get into the rut of eating the same food over and over again until we get bored. My husband gave me a copy of this cookbook for Christmas, and we've now tried 14 recipes, every one of them wonderful. (Don't worry, Anne, the photos are great!) I think my favorite meal is the chipotle orange glazed pork chops with maple squash puree, and spinach-green apple salad. The roasted tomato and black bean soup is so good that I've made it twice...and then the salmon with chickpea ragu and the ratatouille. Seriously, I had never had ratatouille before--wow! The healthy version of peanut butter crispy rice treats are made with crispy brown rice, honey, and dried cherries...totally yum!

I think this cookbook will be just what you're looking for. My only complaint is that the nutritional information is calculated for the entire meal the book suggests such as the pork, squash, and the spinach salad. I think it would be much better to have nutritional data for each dish separately. Otherwise, it's gets 5 stars.

I hope this helps! Tomorrow, I think I'll make the Asian noodle bowl...

Today, make sure you have at least 5 servings of fruits and/or veggies.
