5.0 out of 5 stars Happy chef Feb. 20 2001
Format:Hardcover
I was looking for gifts for my sisters-in-law, and decided I had to have a copy of this for myself as well. I've tried several of the recipes, and so far have had great success. My husband is a fairly picky eater - if he doesn't like it, he will politely but firmly refuse to eat it. So far, he has asked for seconds on everything!
The only warning I would make is that for the uninitiated, there is a fair amount of prep work in many of the recipes. A lot of the recipes are based on fresh vegetables, and they need preparation (peeling and chopping). Once you get past that, though, the recipes go together quickly, with delicious results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Cookbook Feb. 15 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I've tried quite a few of the recipes in this cookbook and all of them have been easy and produced extremely satisfying results. This is definitely the best cookbook geared toward healthier eating that I've encountered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspires you to "Cut the fat, Not the Flavor" Oct. 28 1999
Format:Hardcover
This book has wonderful, attainable meals with great taste. I have checked it out at the library three times and now must own the book. Try the Deep, Dark chocolate cake, so rich it needs no icing! And the "Unfried" fried chicken is even better as leftovers or on a picnic! A superbe investment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently good recipes - not a failure yet Aug. 21 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I've made many recipes from this book and they've all worked. No wierd ingredients are necessary. The recipes really are lighter, quicker, better. I'm a fan of both Marie Simmons and of Marion Cunningham. Recipes are clear, basic and RELIABLE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Won me over Dec 19 2005
By Stepone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I was a little skeptical when I first picked this up, though admittedly for no good reason (maybe I'm a sucker for photos or general "hipness"--this book has neither). Some of the dishes I prepared because I had the ingredients already, but I had a feeling the recipes would be underseasoned or just not exciting. But no, everything was delicious, and my husband loved it as well.

It's also good for trying to wean yourself/family from meat-heavy dinners. We really enjoyed the beef and broccoli stir-fry, for example, which is lightened up simply with a higher proportion of vegetables. So too with the meat loaf.

I refuse to do "diet" cookbooks, so my other reference for lightening up my cooking is Sally Schneider's A New Way to Cook, which I also highly recommend. That book has the style, size (700+ pages), photographs, and glamour over this one, but Lighter,Quicker, Better is far more accessible in terms of ingredients and attitude, and I haven't been disappointed once.
