After being inundated by low-fat, no fat, no salt, no taste, vegetarian, whole foods, sugar busting and optimal health, it was finally nice to read a sane cookbook with easy to make, tasty, interesting, simple healthy foods . Even my 18 month old likes just about everything in here and I have made almost everything. Eagerly waiting another cookbook by same author.

Good cookbook for someone looking to change the way they eat. The ingredients used are what many people would already find in their cupboards. I bought it for the George Foreman Grill recipes and was disappointed -- the only two recipes in the book specifically for the grill were already in the cookbood that came with the grill! Many of the recipes could be adapted for the grill, however, I was not looking to do that much work. Even though it didn't meet my need for purchasing it, this book was a good read and I'm looking forward to trying more of the recipes.

Still a "go to" cookbook in my kitchen after 5 years July 28 2010
By Christine Van Tassel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've had this book for 5 years. That alone is telling. I don't have much tolerance for keeping things around that aren't useful.

I'm not one to cook through an entire book, but paging through and checking my notes, I've prepared about 30% of the recipes in the time I've had this cookbook. Not only that, but I've enjoyed them enough to give many a repeat performance. There is only one recipe that has a negative note for being a little too heavily spiced for my taste, but that's easy to work around.

I enjoy the fact that Cherie makes healthy eating very accessible by calling for ingredients that can be found in a well-stocked grocery store. These recipes are not likely to bust your budget either. My family (husband, toddler, 4-year-old) will eat these recipes without complaining. In fact I think the more I use it and similar recipes it is setting them up to enjoy the taste of real food.

I enjoy Cherie's preludes to recipes giving some of attributes of ingredients in the dish. Often we're given thousands of healthy recipes but no indication what makes them healthy, or we are inundated with information about individual ingredients with no clues on how to really enjoy them. Cherie bridges that information gap nicely with this book of knowledge AND practical application for everyday meals.

I wish Cherie would provide more nutritional information than she does, like grams of fiber and protein, in the nutritional information breakdown. Also, dividing a large stew recipe by 4 or 6 when counting calories is no easy task, so approximating serving sizes (1 1/2 cups for instance) would have been helpful. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

I wish Cherie would produce another cookbook like this. I'd love another 200 of her recipes. A cookbook this reliable and used is rare. If you are looking for an easy way to start eating healthier - check it out.

Some of the menu is a little out of date but the information in the book is good. The price was good and it is nice to have a hard copy to review and use.
Cookbook Love Aug. 23 2012
By Sheila A. Bishop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mom picked up this book at a yard sale. I was so impressed with Calbom's story on how she improved her health. Her recipes are excellent and although there are no pictures in the book to speak of, the recipes have obviously been tried and tested. I have marked, made notes and dated many of recipes. One of my favorite recipes is the "Sprouted Salad with Tahini Dressing" pg. 142. The dressing is excellent and easy to make. True test of cookbook love is the fact that I ordered another for my mom, so she could have one too.
