Patti Labelle's Lite Cuisine cookbook is the best cookbook I have ever purchased. I once hated to cook, but now I look forward to it - most days. The recipes in this book are healthy and easy to make. My 8 year old cooks from this book and he now begs to cook dinner every day. I made the curry chicken in less than half an hour. The tuna wraps, cajun chicken salad, lemon-basil chicken pitas, are great for lunch or a lite dinner and can be made in minutes.
This book is different from Patti's other best selling cookbook, LaBelle Cuisine, in that it leaves out the fat, sodium, and other things we all need to cut back on. Most of the recipes are very easy to make, and the variety in the recipes makes each meal exciting and new. I was worried that "Lite Cuisine" wouldn't be tasty, but the recipes are delicious.
The cookbook can transform a novice cook into one that appears to have gone to a culunary arts school. Lunch and dinner are no longer boring around our house. When people drop by, I get a kick out of being about to say "Let me whip something up for you." I have become the cook that I always wanted to be, but never thought I could be. I can not say enough about this cookbook. Patti LaBelle, I thank you, and my family and friends thank you.

Patti gives easy-to-follow recipes for some of the tastiest meals I've prepared over the past 10 years. I don't feel guilty eating or serving the meals from this cookbook, because they are all either low in fat, cholesterol, sodium, and sugar. My husband is on a low fat diet, and I'm trying to lower the possibilities of developing Type 2 diabetes. Healthy cooking can be great tasting cooking!

Patti Labelle is legendary for her cooking stories from on the road - for years, she had a rider in her contract that a full kitchen be available at her shows for her to prepare post-concert meals.
Patti has taking her love (and considerable knowledge) of food, and put this in a book that also contains family recollections, words of encouragement, and smart living advice. It's a great book to give as a gift (especially to someone who loves to cook, but needs to watch their diet), and a whole lot of fun to read, and prepare her meal suggestions.
This book focuses on low-fat, low-sodium and low-carb meals, but does not sacrifice taste (nor tasty ingedients) in favor of diet. There are some rather indulgent recipes (the Chocolate Pecan Pie is AWESOME), but they are prepared smart.
Patti's stories that accompany many of the recipes are always enjoyable (is there a more down to earth singing star than this fine lasy?), but also poignant - her discussions of her mother's death by diabetis, and her talk of dealing with having the disease herself make you want to eat smarter.
Buy 2 copies of this book - one for a friend who needs to be cooking smarter (we all have one), and one for yourself. It's a great mix of food and wisdom as only Patti could deliver.

Firstly, Patti LaBelle is my favorite entertainer of all time so whatever she releases, I am there to get it. Although I am a thin, nineteen year old male, there are some recipes in here that I not only will try but have tried kind of. The most appealing part of the book is that the meals are delicious but they are also healthy. Whether one is overweight or not, has diabetes, heart problems or not, everyone needs to eat healthy because it is one of the best ways to remain healthy. This is no exception. The meals are great and easy to understand. So, get with the program and buy this sorely universally needed cookbook by soul cook and soul singer Patti LaBelle. I was taken away by how good these dishes actually are. They are so very easy to do so do not worry about not really being a cooker.
