My grown-up daughters and I love this cookbook. We have copies in three households! We like the explanation of why and how healthy changes were made to recipes and how the taste-testers responded. There are wonderful tips for improved results - like soaking the potato wedges before oven-roasting, or how to grill on your barbecue with amazing juicy but non-sticky results. The authors are not shy about making specific brand recommendations for ingredients and suggestions for excellent kitchen gadgets and cookware - useful even for experienced cooks and already well-supplied kitchens. There are recipes for all courses and types of meals. But what did we like best? The authors do not sacrifice taste and texture to fulfill the "healthy changes" mandate. The Caesar salad dressing recipe tastes every bit as decadent as the classic home-made concoction we have used in our family for decades. A wonderful all round cookbook!
