Good tasting AND healthy! Dec 5, 2007
I just purchased this book and now want to order other "Fat Free Secret" books. These are terrific for Weight Watcher members or anyone on a low fat diet. The author explains how to make moist muffins, cookies, breads etc with none of the fat...just using a few "secret" techniques. I just finished making the Brown Sugar Banana Muffins and they were excellent! Each large muffin had 2 WW points, and they turned out much better tasting than any store bought diet products with none of the food additives either!
Buy this book! Mar 31, 2007
I just bought this book. I have made 2 receipes already. They got very high remarks from everyone. People commented that they could not believe it was fat free. They were not sugary sweet either. I put too much coffee in the Mocha Cake so it turned into some very decadent brownies that people are going crazy over! I love how she breaks out for each receipe how many calories and fat grams, etc are in each serving. This book comes very highly recommended from one who loves to bake.
FAT FREE BAKING Feb 8, 2007
Love the book- bought 8 more similar titles. Replaced all the cholesterol-laden, fat-dripping, high calorie cookbooks I used for years. Great CookBook. Easy - Tasty - Healthy, oh my! LISTEN TO THE TIPS ABOUT LESS TIME! BUT HEY, YOU CAN EAT YOUR MISTAKES.
Taste-Free Baking Feb 23, 2006
Unfortunately the recipes I tried from this book did not taste good and turned out rubbery. I do not recommend it.
Good for those starting out in a low fat diet Jun 23, 2005
The book gives some good ideas of what you can do for low fat for those starting out. Advanced? It is handy to have the hints in hard copy but most of them I can find on the net.
I got it for husband who has a sweet tooth and a bad heart. He didn't like the recipes from it and he has loved other low fat baking goods that either he [the real baker in the family] or I have made. It had a large number of muffin recipes until I felt as if I was reading a muffin cookbook. That would be nice if either of us liked muffins.
The pie recipes sounded interesting but called for a crust made of fat free graham crackers which is not available in our area. The same with fat free buttermilk. You can't find it here and are not easy to make however the book provides no alternative such as a recipe for fat free graham cracker. That would have been really nice.
It has been stuck on the back self simply because the hints are handy to review otherwise I was very disappointed with the source.
