HASH(0x9b20d8d0) out of 5 stars No Bite-lette Recipes Feb. 17 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on

I purchased this book after seeing Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bite-lettes and Apple Bite-lette Crisp listed in the index. I have purchased bite-lettes from time to time at Whole Foods, they are tasty but expensive. Sadly there is not a single bite-lette recipe in this book. The apple bite-lette crisp recipe calls for purchased bite-lettes and apples. I don't need a recipe for that. The chocolate chip bite-lette recipe is only used to illustrate how ingredients are listed on a label. Disappointing.

I love that the recipes are using natural ingredients, but the author should have included nutritional information for the recipes. This would be a much appreciated addition!

HASH(0x9b27cfe4) out of 5 stars Junk food, yes. Wholesome, no. Dec 21 2010
By bookbuyerr - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm sure Dr. Trice means well, and no doubt these treats are yummy, and fine if a person can handle the high levels of sugar and starches. To her credit, she does not demonize saturated fats, and sometimes suggests using organic products. So three stars for that. But even "fair-trade organic evaporated cane juice" is nothing more than table sugar to a person's metabolism.

All salt is 'sea-salt'. 'Expeller-pressed' oils are still too high in omega 6s. 'Agave syrup' is a highly processed marketing success that contains more fructose than HFCS. (And are you sure you want to use wax paper: a petroleum by-product?) Thinking that these recipes are somehow healthy because they contain the buzzword ingredient of the week requires total nutritional fact denial.

HASH(0x9b27d2c4) out of 5 stars Tasty, Healthy, and Accessible June 25 2010
By Legend in My Own Mind - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Finally! A "healthy snack" cookbook that offers us more than celery sticks with peanut butter, cookies that taste like sand, and baked apples! Too many of the current cookbook offerings in the good nutrition arena are full of recipes that few adults would find enjoyable, let alone children. Dr. Laura's cookbook is chock-full of easy to make, palatable sweets and snacks that, like the Bite-lettes and other foods she retails, can be enjoyed by everyone. Dr. Laura even shares the recipes for the cookies that you can find on the shelves of "W.F." and other markets. Now, that's integrity!

Though the book's cover shows some enticing-looking sweets, there are also plenty of savory options--cucumber snacks and mini-pizzas, for example, that will satisfy those without a sweet tooth. I, personally, love the recipes for smoothies, sparklers, and other drinks such as the refreshing spa water and a banana shake that is much less threatening than the thousand-calorie catastrophe they sell at "J.J."

Don't overlook the first few chapters on ingredients, reading labels, and nutrition. You may think you know all about it, but Dr. Laura explains it all in a way that is sensible and memorable without being preachy. I tend to skip over these things, too, but was glad I took the time to read through these important chapters. I'd read about trans fats, corn syrup, and white flour and sugar before, but honestly, this was the first time I actually retained the information.

Thank you, Dr. Laura, for making chocolate chip cookies, lemonade, and cherry pie accessible to all of us without forcing us to eat carob, artificial sweeteners, and goopy pie filling from a can!

HASH(0x9b27d0fc) out of 5 stars Easy, Tasty Dessert Recipes, Great Photos May 13 2010
By Karen Kaffenberger - Published on

I pre-ordered the cookbook, and was pleased when it arrived from Amazon a day before the official release date. Having worked on projects as a freelance website copywriter for Laura Trice's healthy cookie company, I was eager to see what kind of healthy snack recipes she would create. Although I consider myself a good cook, I generally don't have time for lengthy, complicated recipes, so I was happy to see that most of the selections had few ingredients and a short prep and bake time. I also found the beautiful color photos to be very enticing.

I decided to try the Whoopie Pies made with the One Pan Eggless Chocolate Cake recipe. I couldn't decide if I would rather use the Fluffy Marshmallow Frosting as suggested underneath the photo, or make the Natural Whipped Cream, so I did both. The recipes were easy to follow and came out well. I did have to adjust the bake time slightly on the cake- not a big deal. Everything tasted great! The cake had a moist, chocolaty texture that was sweet, but not overly so like traditional cake. The Fluffy Marshmallow Frosting was light with a nice maple taste, and the Natural Whipped Cream was creamy and sweet without being overbearing. I also tried Grandma's Gingerbread Cake and topped it with the Natural Whipped Cream. It, too, was easy to make, and had a rich flavor that reminded me of spice cake. I have a terrible sweet tooth, and wished the cake was a little sweeter, but I found it was a wonderful complement to my morning cup of coffee and much better than a doughnut.
