This is the authors' fourth microwave cookbook, the most recent being Mastering Microwave Cookery (Simon & Schuster, 1986). Less a diet book than a guide to low-calorie cookery utilizing the microwave oven, it contains recipes for 72 dinners of approximately 400 calories each. Menus are divided by season, with each consisting of soup, main course, and dessertand designed to be prepared in 30 minutes. Breakfast and lunch menus are also included, but they're limited and less inspiring than those for dinner. Combining reduced fat, low-calorie meal preparation and quick microwave cookery, this is a nice twist to the standard diet plan. Susan E. Holmer, Peninsula Lib. System, San Mateo, Cal.

Cooking is not my thing, so I appreciate that their recipes are quick and easy and that there are instructions for making just one serving of each dish (I'm a vegetarian who lives with an omnivore). Their dinners mainly consist of a light soup, a main course (incorporating vegetables), and a fruit-based dessert.
I particularly like Mexican Stuffed Zucchini Boats, Peach "Ice Cream," Spinach Ribbon Soup, Parmesan Spinach, and their really good Fresh Tomato Sauce.
I cut the microwave times a little because microwaves were less powerful back then, but otherwise this is my go-to book for easy recipes.
