My wife and I picked this up about a year ago. Since then, we have made about a dozen meals from this book, most of them multiple times (like the lemon chicken with orzo, a personal favorite.) We also purchased a second copy after our dog tore up the first because we liked it so much.

We like this book for several reasons, and the three primary ones are stated in the title of my review: the recipies are tasty, healthy, and easy to prepare. The book provides the calories, fat grams, protein, etc., so you know what you are taking in. There are no tricks concerning portion size; most recipes are for two servings, and each serving is well within reason (250 - 450 calories, low fat).

When you open the book at random, you will find a large color photograph of the prepared meal on the left hand page, and the recipe, along with some smaller photos of intermediate steps, neat and colorful boxes for nutritional info & ingredients, time to prep/cook, and easy directions on the right.

For those of you just deciding to start cooking for yourself so that you can actually control what you are taking in (for weight loss and health), this book is for you.

Also, for those of you who want to adopt healthy cooking & eating practices but are organizationally inclined, a tip: once every two weeks, sit down with this book (and any other healthy recipe books you may have) and plan out what meals you would like to cook on which nights. Copy down all the ingredients, including the amounts necessary. When you have the completed list, go through your fridge/pantry/spice wrack and determine if you have any of the ingredients. Make a secondary list of what you don't have and need to buy, including amounts. Add this list to your general grocery list before you go shopping. This way, after you go shopping you know that you will have everything you need for the next two weeks of cooking. I have found that before we adopted this practice, it was much too easy to rationalize NOT cooking, since we were always vaguely unsure about whether or not we had what we needed to cook. Not only are we healthier now, but as an added bonus we get to try new dishes all the time. I pity the people still stuck in microwave-meals/fast-food limbo!

Buy the book--you won't regret it!
I am really enjoying this cook book. It is an older book, 2007, however, the recipes use everyday spices and ingredients. No need to go to the grocery and buy $50.00 worth of groceries you probably won't use again. I've tried several of the recipes and will make them again.
Bought as a gift for a friend and she loved it!!
I am sure that I will also get to enjoy some of the recipes in the book.
Nothing new or helpful
Many meals cooked from this cookbook. Love!

I had seen this book in my public library, liked it and wanted my own copy. The recipes call for ingredients that I already have or are easy to locate at my local supermarket. I like the additional information included with each recipe such as fat gms., carbs., fiber gms. and protein gms. This information allows me to calculate the "points plus" for the Weight Watcher program.
Wonderful recipes and information. .
My parents have a copy of this book and I just had to buy one for myself. It is one of the best cookbooks I own and I recommend it highly to anyone who likes to cook healthy. It has color photos throughout plus I really like how they put the calorie information on the side and there are hints and sometimes history info. It's really interesting just to sit down with the book and read through it. I have made a good handful of recipes and all of them have turned out very tasty. Someone else mentioned the Lemon Chicken Orzo recipe and I have to agree, it's one of my favorites too. Some recipes do have some hard to find ingredients like for the fancier dishes but overall, you should be able to find everything in your local grocery store.
