(Oxmoor House, November 2004)
by the incessant noise from fad diets (yes, shunning
carbs is over), most people forget that it is possible
to eat well, feel great and enjoy delicious food all
at the same time. Unless you are restricted by a medical
condition, weight loss goals and healthy eating do
not require you to exile potatoes or beans or sugar
or whatever your palate fancies.
why we appreciate Cooking Light Magazine
and its latest annual recipe compilation, Cooking
Light Annual Recipes 2005. Cooking Light,

that tone down the fat, trim the sugar and deliver

the New Year.
means if you are in the mood for dessert tonight,
try the Chocolate Pudding Cake. It’s gooey,
warm and full-bodied, and you count only 351 calories
and 7 grams of fat for the real thing. Yes, there’s
fat, and yes, there’s sugar, but if you’re
looking for a full-on dessert, it’s a delicious
yet reasonable choice. And it is about a decadent
as a dessert can get. How do they do it? They cut
the sugar, cut the butter and use 2% milk.
Light goes way beyond dessert, however, so there’s
plenty more to keep you eating well throughout the
year. Dishes like Pear, Pecorino & Prosciutto
Panini, and Garlicky Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and
Basil concentrate on delivering the vivid flavors
of individual ingredients instead of pumping up fat
and calories with unnecessary additions.
Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2005 you’ll
find plenty of colorful photographs, complete nutritional
information, cooking tips and advice, and well-developed
complete menus. This comprehensive collection delivers
a satisfying range of reliable recipes for many cooking
styles, from simple and familiar to adventurous and
ethnic. It’s the right way to start the year.
