--Maggie Ruggiero, AOL Slashfood

By love to read on Dec 3 2010
Format: Paperback
Was a great cookbook if you like to try new ways of cutting the fat out of your diet. Some were really tasty and some but not many were not so tasty. But over all it was a great buy for me.
I try out a new recipe every week!

If you eat healthy, this book is for you! May 10 2010
By C. Wilson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Secrets of a Skinny Chef is excellent. I am not Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray yet enjoy cooking healthy, delicious meals for myself and my family. This cookbook is exactly what I need. The book has easy-to-find ingredients with simple instructions for each recipe. I've already made nine different recipes with it and they were super easy but very delicious. I have a son that is a VERY picky eater and he loved everything I made. So far, I've made Supermoist Turkey Burgers, Sesame Chicken Hold the Deep-Fried Breading, Chicken "No Pot Belly" Pie, My Dad's Trim Chicken Enchiladas, Breaded Zucchini, Mayonnaise is Not Your Enemy Coleslaw, Broccoli Bacon Salad, Stir Fried Garlic Broccoli, Slender Blondie Brownies and Crustless Apple Pie....all delicious! The tips throughout the book are interesting and helpful. The recipes are so delicious and flavorful that you won't feel deprived. If you eat healthy, this book is for you!

This is more than a cookbook, it is a healthy eating bible. I have tried various recipes out of this book including banana bread (which came out moist and delicious) and meatball sandwiches (which the whole family loved)!!! I would reccommend this cookbook for anyone looking to cook healthy, delicious meals.

Easy and Light Recipes March 31 2010

Format: Paperback
I have been a Skinny Chef fan for a couple of years and the tips and recipes I've received from the newsletters and website have provided me with ways to cook healthy meals for my family that they love. I am so excited that she has finally written a book! Try the Stuffed Shells recipe - its amazing! Pigs in a Blanket and Banana Cream Pie made light? Thank you Skinny Chef! Can't wait for the next book!

picky husband loves them all! Aug. 29 2011
By kylie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i have been cooking out of this book for the last two weeks, and my husband (who is somewhat picky, and definitely doesn't like diet food) has raved about every meal that i have cooked. similarly, my daughter would not let me put the macaroni and cheese away she was enjoying it so much, and she polished off the sloppy joe mix as if it was cake (which she also happens to love). the recipes are easy to follow, although ingredients are all listed in pounds and temperatures in fahrenheit so i have had to convert to metric (being australian), but i am just annotating the book as i go. there are not a lot of pictures, but the titles of the recipes make it fairly easy to predict which ones will become instant favourites. the recipes also use standard ingredients - no weird and wacky things that are impossible to find or will never be used again! and the servings are very generous. this book is a keeper, and will get used a lot in my house - i thoroughly recommend it.

Didn't meet my expectations May 13 2013

Just doesn't measure up to some of the other fabulous cookbooks out there. Expected more pictures, and didn't find many recipes leaping out at me.
