Once again Mairlyn hits a home run with her new book. A must have for everyone.....buy it for yourself and buy one for someone you care about so you can spread the good health, and great taste of these easy to make and fabulous recipes.
For anyone also wanting to know what is in their recipes, the nutrition breakdown is fantastic and has a diabetic equivalent for those needing to know that information as well.
I give this book a 5 star as it has some great receipes .
I watch her all the time on TV she has got a great sense of humor and funny.
Keep up the great work.
My issue was not with the food but with the cookbook itself. Dividing it by food group and then into a seasonal subcategory made finding recipes quickly and easily impossible. As a result, you go from baking to cooking to baking... which just threw me off. Also, even though the chapters are divided into food groups there is no group for chicken or beef. Just fish. I find that totally irresponsible and a tad ridiculous. This is not a vegetarian cookbook. There were only two recipes with beef in the entire cookbook which I found in the index was under ground beef, not beef. OMG, very confusing and frustrating!
I love the introductions that Mairlyn writes for every recipe. She is such a character and I adored hearing about what she was trying to accomplish when she came up with a particular recipe. That said, her intro to the cookie recipe was four paragraphs long! Too much text. In a lot of the recipes we are told to wash our hands over and over again which fills the directions up with lots of text. For the stir fry recipe, for example, if the list of ingredients had told us how the vegetables and meat were to be prepared, there would have been less text in the directions making it easier for me to make the dinner and the recipe appear less daunting.
This cookbook needed a really good edit.Read more ›
She translates into laymens terms how and what to look for in healthy choices...
My ONLY problem with the book, there is just not enough pictures for me,
and unfortunately I need visuals to help me decide if I want to make something or not, but I really is a beautiful book.
THANK YOU, Mairlyn Smith for writing recipes that are healthy and don't taste like %!*?.
