    One of favorite go-to cookbooks. The recipes are consistently good.

    My favorite Cooking Light book I have.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Microwave chocolate pudding

    • stacey on June 28, 2011

      better than instant puddings, but not as yummy as other stove-top puddings

  • Creamy four-cheese macaroni

    • unrealmeal on March 18, 2011

      Really good, very very cheesy. I used 4 cups of pasta instead of 3, and there was still a very good cheese to noodle ratio. Make sure you cook the pasta in well-salted water, and don't rinse it before adding to the cheese sauce (just drain well).

  • Smashed potato-and-broccoli casserole

    • candrika.jo on July 03, 2011

      A good way to cook those potatoes that need to be used. Although the red pepper was good, I think I'll substitute chipotle chile pepper for red pepper next time + add a little more fresh dill. Note: I didn't peel the potatoes.

  • Tex-mex tofu burritos

    • Couture911 on September 25, 2010

      Turned out ok. Good way to pack some veggies and tofu into your diet, but I don't think I'll make it again.

  • Chicken enchilada casserole

    • chawkins on March 11, 2014

      I did not start with fresh chicken breast. I used the meat shredded from half of a Costco rotisserie chicken, did not drained the tomatoes, used a whole egg instead of 2 egg whites and shredded Mexican blend cheese instead of the cheddar and Monteray Jack, roasted home grown chile for the canned chopped chile and finally 2% milk instead of the 1% called for. Overcooked the white sauce a little, so it was kind of thick but the final result was good even though it might not be as light as the original recipe.

  • Mexican cobb salad

    • shamby on August 22, 2013

      p. 412

  • Cranberry chutney

    • krobbins426 on November 14, 2011

      Nice sweet and sour. Very easy. Everyone liked it. I subbed 3/4 cup agave for 1 cup white sugar.

  • Spicy fish stew

    • chawkins on February 20, 2014

      I used a pound of mahi-mahi, so scaled everything down accordingly with the exception of the crushed red pepper and the red potatoes. I crushed a two-and-a-half inch dry red pepper into the stew, this is probably more than the amount called for and I used three quarter lb of red potatoes, this is slightly less than called for. The stew ended up with enough spice for us but could do with slightly less potatoes.
