I am a sucker for a good cookbook. Especially one I can see myself using over and over again.
The SkinnyTaste Cookbook is going to be one I use over and over again.
Gina Homolka is America’s most trusted home cook when it comes to easy, flavorful recipes that are miraculously low-calorie and made from all-natural, easy-to-find ingredients. Her blog, Skinnytaste is the number one go-to site for slimmed down recipes that you’d swear are anything but. It only takes one look to see why people go crazy for Gina’s food: cheesy, creamy Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli with only 420 calories per serving, breakfast dishes like Make-Ahead Western Omelet "Muffins" that truly fill you up until lunchtime, and sweets such as Double Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies that are low in sugar and butter-free but still totally indulgent.
features 150 amazing recipes: 125 all-new dishes and 25 must-have favorites. As a busy mother of two, Gina started Skinnytaste when she wanted to lose a few pounds herself. She turned to Weight Watchers for help and liked the program but struggled to find enough tempting recipes to help her stay on track. Instead, she started “skinny-fying” her favorite meals so that she could eat happily while losing weight.
With 100 stunning photographs and detailed nutritional information for every recipe, is an incredible resource of fulfilling, joy-inducing meals that every home cook will love.
The details in this book are amazing. She even included recipe's that can be made Gluten Free! Yay!
I loved her ability to make tasty meals that are healthy and cheep to make.
And did I mention they are easy to make too??
For my parents Christmas Eve "Irish Potluck", I made Gina's Too-Good-To-Be-True Baked Potato Soup.
It was to die for! I didn't feel bad about going for seconds and I even indulged in some leftovers the next day for lunch.
(i apologize for the photo quality. My camera decided to die a couple days before Christmas so I was left with my iphone)
I absolutely recommend you pick up this book or even pick it up for a friend!
