A useless book if you don't live in the United States Apr 16, 2005
I am an American living abroad and found this book near impossible to use because of the ingredients called for...fat-free cheese, fat-free salad dressing, Butter Buds, Lite Cool Whip??? I have therefore NEVER used this book. And I don't see what is so impressing anyway. If I really wanted to, I could take my Joy of Cooking and replace all the fatty ingredients to "fat-free" and use more spices instead of butter for flavor. Maybe this is a good book for those who are totally clueless about cooking and health, but other than that I wouldn't recommend it. It has been sitting on my shelf for 3 years, collecting dust. I think it's finally time I threw it out and made space for a better cookbook.
Good ol' American food... Jan 24, 1999
Having lived in California for most of my life, I am quite used to the trendy, healthy cuisines with costly ingredients you've never heard of. This book was a nice change. The idea is that all of the recipes have ingredients you could even purchase in a local grocery store in Oklahoma - where the author originates. I bought this book on a whim because it was in the clearance section of my local book store. I paid full price for the Italian version because the original was so great.
Rohde has given helpful tips in the front of the books for cutting fat out of recipes. Each recipe has the fat content and preparation time. The one thing that could use some improvement is cutting the use of refined sugar in the dessert section. Also, since Rohde is from the south I am guessing I won't see a vegetarian version anytime soon - too bad.
Who Edited This? Jul 31, 1998
These recipes are great--realistic food for real people who haven't a clue what lemongrass is--but who edited this book? It's filled with rambling, pointless stories and just terrible grammar, making it handy to flip through but a painful read.
Great Idea But..... Jan 11, 1998
I have read many diet books in my time, but this one seems to be more realistic than most. The idea of significantly reducing the amount of fat we eat is much easier in this day and age. However, the authors remark of not watching the amount of food she ate is troublesome. Large amounts of even fat free foods will still cause weight gain. I was also concerned about the amount of chemicals you would be eating when you use a lot of the fat free products. The recipies looked delicious and they all were made of products that we all would find in our local supermarket. No bizarre ingredients that no one will eat, especially children! All in all it is a good book and easy to read.
