i see almost all good ingredients (very little funky foods like 'fatfree butter' and the like)
an asian bent to many (sesame oil, rice vinegar, cilantro)
many of these recipes are dairyfree, many are glutenfree, many are nightshadefree
most recipes are ones that i would be willing to try out from both a taste and health point of view.
also recipes are very well organized and succinct, ez to follow without many peeks at book.
these recipes have been well kitchen and family tested, i think--so far they are all working out.
the choco banana muffins are amazing texture, considering that they are eggfree....the chkn with olives and lemons was yum...if i had to i think i could live out of this ckbk for a year. bought one for myself and one for my mom (happy mothers day)
