Review

“More personal and more enlightening than the typical celebrity cookbook, this health-focused collection from Sheryl Crow and her personal chef is a refreshing addition to an increasingly crowded field. When the singer-songwriter was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, she reassessed her eating habits, which consisted of on-the-run tuna sandwiches and catered dressing-room food. The self-admitted noncook consulted with a nutritionist and hired chef Chuck White to cook for her on the road. This collection of recipes represents his greatest hits―a warm hummus soup with cilantro pesto and garlic pita chips, and a tuna salad freshened up with green apple. Though Crow has not adopted a vegan lifestyle, many of these dishes are meatless, emphasizing colorful vegetables and fresh preparations. Exotic inventions include a sophisticated spin on peanut butter and jelly that incorporates cashew butter and fruit. Other dishes swap out ingredients to make comfort foods more wholesome and nutritious: a vegan reuben made with "corned beef seitan" and a chocolate mousse made from whipped avocado. Crow's nutritionist, Rachel Beller, offers tips throughout to educate readers. White's easy-to-follow recipes, coupled with Crow's down-to-earth narrative, make their collaboration a successful duet.” ―Publishers Weekly

“The popular singer joins forces with her personal chef to share nutritious, seasonal dishes.

Crow remembers the delicious “Midwestern fare” her mother served when she was growing up, but as a busy, successful artist, her diet consisted of dressing-room junk food and room service. A breast cancer diagnosis in 2006 became the life-altering “game-changer” that spurred her to adopt a diet rich in sustainable, organic foods. Joined by her longtime personal chef Chuck White, the cookbook’s multifaceted recipe sections are grouped by seasons: Items like stuffed avocados, Southern Cobb Salad, Pecan-Crusted Trout and Lemon-Vanilla Panna Cotta are spring and summer tour favorites, while winter months spent in the studio feature Warm Hummus Soup, Barley and Vegetable Risotto, Five-Spiced Pork Tenderloin and her Mom’s Reconstructed Chili. Many of the recipes are supplemented by Crow and White’s smart, appealing cooking and food recommendations (ceviche, country ham, quinoa), along with quick factoids on everything from wasabi to grass-fed beef from Crow’s former dietitian Rachel Beller. Crow doesn’t deny herself the “10 percent cheat zone” and guiltlessly indulges in desserts like Vegan Chocolate-Mint Brownies and Banana Bread Pudding. Each section is clear and well organized, accented by generous photographs of the finished products and of Crow in the kitchen, on the road and alongside her two adopted sons.

Brimming with easy, nourishing recipes, food tips and personal anecdotes, Crow’s recipe book should garner new appreciation from fans, foodies and cancer survivors.” ―Kirkus

I enjoyed reading the recipes in this book. This is not a recipe book for beginners! I also liked the way the recipes are sorted by the seasons.

HASH(0x9e4b7540) out of 5 stars I'm annoyed. April 21 2011
By Decal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ok - so this book has nice recipes - I like the fact that we're being healthy, organic, etc. However, there are some drawbacks. A lot of the recipes take a lot of time. I am currently on hour 2 of making the shitake sesame grit cakes, which are supposed to be just a side dish! Who has two hours to make a side dish?! Sheryl also comments on how she loves this recipe because it is gluten free. I have Celiac Disease, and this recipe is NOT gluten free. It calls for soy sauce which is made from wheat (Tamari is the GF substitute). I know that doesn't effect many of us, but it could make some people sick, and this book is supposed to be about about being healthy. So far, I would say the recipes have been good, but more difficult or time consuming than they should be.

HASH(0x9e4b778c) out of 5 stars This Will Make You Healthy... April 5 2011
By PattyLouise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this cookbook. After getting it in the mail on Saturday...I have been cooking from it nonstop. The edamame and corn succotash, the fish, the amazing sandwich called a One Eyed Cyclops...yummy and delicious. The ideas within this book are that food should be as organic as you can make it, fresh and local. I loved the fruit and veggie chart that clearly showed what foods are readily available during each month of the year. The recipes are simple and clear and easy to follow. Tips are given. Explanations are provided. This is a book that will help you to eat foods that are known to help you maintain a healthy body.

Sheryl and her chef, Chuck were on the Today Show this week and I was so impressed with the recipes they were making I ordered the book. I am undergoing treatment for breast cancer and it impressed me that she had gone to the effort to ensure that what she was putting into her body from now on would be healthy. The book contains such great recipes and is so well explained that even if you are not the greatest in the kitchen you can do it! Thanks to Sheryl and Chuck for the book.

HASH(0x9e4b7a44) out of 5 stars I own a ton of cookbooks and this one is already a favorite! April 17 2011
By Booklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I LOVE this cookbook. It's packed with tons of creative, and delicious looking recipes that I can't wait to try. I made one recipe last night and it was so simple and crazy good and I will be making it over and over. It's the slow-cooked chicken tacos, super easy, with just three ingredients, good salsa, chicken broth and chicken breasts. They slow cook on the stove top and are fall apart tender. I served them over quinoa with lots of the tasty sauce and today for lunch made the tacos, shredding the chicken and topping with more salsa and avocado. Am already thinking ahead to the holidays and will be giving this as a gift for sure.

HASH(0x9e4b7aa4) out of 5 stars A great addition for people who want to get excited about delicious, healthy food! April 1 2011
By BKap - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Sheryl Crow and Chuck White pack this cookbook with amazing new recipes. This cookbook really gets you thinking about new ways to make healthy food delicious, especially, for me, the ways in which tofu is incorporated into so many meals (as a vegetarian, I'm always looking for different tofu recipes). But since it's not a straight vegetarin cookbook, it's a great option for people who are looking to eat healthier without making a huge diet change.

I would definitely recommend this to someone who is looking to change up their diet for the healthier. We can all benefit from the re-examination Sheryl Crow did after she dealt with her breast cancer diagnosis, and this book really makes the case for all of us to think about the way we eat in a new light.

The most exciting part is the ways to use all the wonderfull fruits and vegetables that are at our fingertips. I also really like the guides to eating in season included in the back. I can't wait to use this for garden parties in the summer!
