I grabbed this book at a bookstore because I was having an impatient day and it had the most appealing recipes that did not read like a "Best of Emeril Lagasse" cookbook. (And I do love me some Emeril recipes!) What I saw looked like ingredients I can get at my local, rural grocery store. I don't want to have to make a 90 minute trip into the city for ingredients that need to be used within 4 days or they spoil. That's a special weekend menu idea, not an everyday thing.
With all of that said, this book is lovely. It's broken down into parts like an Intro, breakfast and brunch, snacks and beverages, lunch, dinner, sides, and desserts. Those sections are further broken down into chapters. For example, in Breakfast and Brunch, you've got Hot and Cold Cereals, Muffins/Scones and Griddle Cakes, and Eggs/Omelets and Frittatas. Snacks and Beverages has Dips and Spreads, Appetizers, Nibbles and Trail Mixes, and Smoothies and Shakes.
Further, I am a BIG fan of natural ingredients. No fake sugar, no margarine. I want real butter, real sugar....all in moderation. Several other cookbooks that appealed to my other requirements failed in the no-fake-food department. I REFUSE to use Splenda in my cooking. So, if you're not shy about real food, you'll be all set here. As far as calorie count goes...it ranges from around 100/150 up to 700 or so for the dinner recipes. Its mixed well, so you can skip the really high ones and still be getting your money's worth.
The soups sound yummy, I can't wait to try them.
I think this book is a great investment. I have no regrets paying a little more in a bookstore for it. I can't wait to try some of the recipes.
