My mother has made a baked Lemon Icebox Pie (from an old brand name label recipe) all my life. It is yummy delicious. I never expected to find a super-simple no-bake low-fat No-guilt version that tastes just like it but can be made in less than 5 minutes!! (in a Bosch mixer) Even if there were no other recipes that I liked-- but there are many great recipes within-- the book would have paid for itself with that single recipes. I love it. I use this book often.
I just finished making the Banana Cheesecake, and it's possibly the best dessert I've ever eaten - and only 130 calories! This book has some really great recipes, from wonderful spinach dips to salad dressings to various desserts; yogurt cheese is truly an amazing food - I've never eaten better and I'm losing all kinds of weight! Draining the whey reduces the tartness of the yogurt a great deal - the cheesecakes do not taste like gobs of yogurt (not that there's anything wrong with that) but taste like a lighter version of regular cheesecake. Not to mention the very high calcium and protein content - everyone who loves to cook (and eat!) needs to explore yogurt cheese, and I highly suggest this book along with the Goldbeck's "Eat Well the YoChee Way."
I love this book! It is written by a professional cook who trained with Julia Child's partner Simone Beck in France as well as many other food professional experiences. She is also a receptionist at Weight Watchers meetings, which means that she maintains her weight within her range and is a Lifetime member. I myself am a Lifetime member of Weight Watchers and appreciate good cookbooks like this that have lowfat, low calorie, low cholesterol, low sodium recipes that are delicious. I love Greek Yogurt(yogurt cheese) which I found to be expensive, so I began on a journey to make my own. In that process, I found this book at and am very pleased with it. Who knew there were so many delicious ways of using yogurt cheese. Bravo to Shelly Melvin for creating such a delicious low calorie cookbook.
I make homemade yogurt at least twice a week. I have two different yogurt makers and I'll tell you one thing, you'll never buy yogurt again after you make your own! I control the type of milk used, sugar content (I never sweeten mine, just use pure vanilla extract) and flavoring. Easy to make greek yogurt, just drain it for a few hours. Make cheese, drain it longer. Love this book and wish a book "2" would come out! Make it yourself for pennies a serving!
This excluded any kind of fat and there are a lot of healthy fats out there to use. I did try a cookie recipe and it had no taste at all. I really should have sent it back but was lazy. Will donate for a book sale for my sister's church.
If there weren't some recipes with syrup and prepackaged stuff I'll definitely give it 5 stars, I recommend it, there are tons of interesting and delicious recipes, I've tried some of them and am very satisfied.
I am a yogurt cheese fancier and these recipes are great inspirations, for sure. They are not very sophisticated but have great potential and have given me "food for thought".
Really excellent recipes. You would never know there was no chicken in the Mock chicken salad!!
