5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I was looking for! Jan. 30 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
All I ever want in a cookbook is fast and easy recipes with ingredients that I do NOT have to hunt for all over hell and creation. I LOVE unique and interesting foods, but sometimes you just want a book of simple recipes that you can whip together. And by whip I mean reach into your fridge and cabinets, find what you need and cook it, all under 20 minutes. Most of the recipes in this book fit that bill. The ones that don't, they just take longer than 30 minutes, but still have great ingredients.

I grabbed this book at a bookstore because I was having an impatient day and it had the most appealing recipes that did not read like a "Best of Emeril Lagasse" cookbook. (And I do love me some Emeril recipes!) What I saw looked like ingredients I can get at my local, rural grocery store. I don't want to have to make a 90 minute trip into the city for ingredients that need to be used within 4 days or they spoil. That's a special weekend menu idea, not an everyday thing.

With all of that said, this book is lovely. It's broken down into parts like an Intro, breakfast and brunch, snacks and beverages, lunch, dinner, sides, and desserts. Those sections are further broken down into chapters. For example, in Breakfast and Brunch, you've got Hot and Cold Cereals, Muffins/Scones and Griddle Cakes, and Eggs/Omelets and Frittatas. Snacks and Beverages has Dips and Spreads, Appetizers, Nibbles and Trail Mixes, and Smoothies and Shakes.

Further, I am a BIG fan of natural ingredients. No fake sugar, no margarine. I want real butter, real sugar....all in moderation. Several other cookbooks that appealed to my other requirements failed in the no-fake-food department. I REFUSE to use Splenda in my cooking. So, if you're not shy about real food, you'll be all set here. As far as calorie count ranges from around 100/150 up to 700 or so for the dinner recipes. Its mixed well, so you can skip the really high ones and still be getting your money's worth.

The soups sound yummy, I can't wait to try them.

I think this book is a great investment. I have no regrets paying a little more in a bookstore for it. I can't wait to try some of the recipes.

3.0 out of 5 stars High fiber but not necessarily healthy April 10 2010
By Rebecca White - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been on a weight loss mission for about a year now. So far I have lost 60 pounds. Part of the way I have lost it is by increasing my fiber intake along with reducing calories. The recipes in this book are relatively high in fiber, but they are also high in calories as well. There is a recipe in this book for chicken that is 667 calories! The recipe doesn't include any sides or anything. That is more calories than I would normally eat in a whole dinner. If you are not worrying so much about calories and are just trying to incorporate more fiber into your diet, this book may be good for you. However, if you are trying to include fiber in a weight loss plan, you may want to try something different.

Yummy recipes that are good for you. The book includes the fiber content of each dish and in addltion, fiber counts on many food common foods. Amazon's delivery was exceptionally speedy and free with the Super Saver shipping requirements on my order. Thanks Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected Feb. 3 2011
By Lia Smurf - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointed because this book did not contain as many "high-fiber" recipes as expected. Some of the recipes are not high in fiber at all. I could come up with a number of high fiber recipes that were higher in fiber than a number of the recipes in this book. I was not interested in recipes that contain 1 to 3 grams of fiber. Very disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good cookbook on fiber Feb. 18 2011
By njmommyx2 - Published on

My family really need to pump up the fiber in our diet, especially my husband as per his doctor. Looked at local big chain bookstores and only found limited types of cookbooks. This cookbook has alot of very good info on increasing fiber in your daily diet. The recipes are really good. I would highly recommend this cookbook, especially for those who have diverticulitis.
