Skinnytaste Fast and Slow: Knockout Quick-Fix and Slow-Cooker Recipes for Real Life Reviews
I would give this 3.5 stars. Overall I do like this cookbook and I very quickly made many of her recipes. They are very quick and very easy in general. I also like that she makes healthy choices to reduce calories and increase vegetables in many meals. My main issue is that a lot of the recipes just don't have enough flavor. I will probably still make many of them, just with a few adjustments or additions to make them a bit more interesting.
I really enjoyed this cookbook. I love using my slow cooker on busy days and there are several recipes here that I'd like to try. I like that the nutritional information is added for each recipe.
You will need to determine which recipes fit into your version of a healthy diet. Do you avoid cheese or dairy, red meat, etc?? They're in there. This isn't necessarily a low cholesterol or fat or gluten cookbook. It is just a generally healthy recipe cookbook, making it pretty well-rounded. You just ne ...more
I love a lot of Skinny Taste's online recipes and follow the blog, but I don't know that the extras available in the book are especially worth it. It was great to look through at the library, but none of the recipes I tried from this book were something I'd really want to make again. They weren't bad, but not great.
Borrowed this book from the library and I love that she categorizes things as "quick" (ready in 30 mins), slow cooker, and freezer-friendly. Can't wait to try some of the recipes that I haven't seen on her Skinnytaste website.
Really fantastic recipes without a lot of extra fuss, and mostly accessible ingredients for some yummy ethnic food. Time will tell to see if the recipes have staying lower, since some seem a little trendy... but overall we have loved what I've made.
Love this cookbook. Like the wide variety of recipes. I can think of more than 10 I will make- and that is saying a lot, that is how I judge a cook book - first I see 10 + recipes I like and then see if I actually make them or they inspire me to change up what I am cooking and inspire me to make new types of food. So far have made 2 recipes from this compilation (burnt Broccoli and the fish and chips) and both have been delicious (in fact we made the chips part of the fish and chips twice so far ...more
Award-winning blogger and best-selling cookbook author, Gina Homolka, has released her latest cookbook, Skinnytaste Fast and Slow, filled with slow-cooker and quick-fix recipes. I discovered the Skinnytaste website over a year ago, and it quickly turned into a resource to find nutritious and flavorful recipes to prepare at home. I have Homolka’s first cookbook, which is one I always come back to, so when this released, I was looking forward to getting a copy for my collection.
As most cookbooks, ...more
I follow her blog, bought this on a whim and I don't regret the purchase. Beautifully photographed and the couple of recipes I have tried have been easily made and a hit with the family. After I've prepared more of the recipes, I may come back to add another star, but cookbooks don't get a full 5 stars from me unless I've prepared a number of the recipes and gotten multiple winners.
