    Just made the Roasted Chicken and Pears - delicious. Mild in flavour - I think next time I will throw in some garlic cloves to the roast along with the vegetables and pears.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Grape gelatin with blueberries

    • Cheri on March 24, 2012

      UGH. This is SO bland - tasteless. The gelatin has no flavor. May have been the juice I used, which was all natural, nothing added. Needed a sweeter juice. Technically, this worked just fine, the blueberries were a must. Served with some whipped cream, which defeats the lo-cal idea, but really needed for us. I would try this again, with different juice, and possible add a bit of sugar to the gelatin before allowing to set up. I doubled the quantities to use up my blueberries, which made 5 1.5 cup servings.

  • Lighter blue-plate special

    • southerncooker on February 14, 2022

      Loved the meatloaf and mashed potatoes. The buttermilk gave the potatoes a nice tangy flavor that complemented the BBQ sauce on the meatloaf. I used Sweet Baby Ray's original BBQ sauce. My husband doesn't like crunchy green beans so instead of 6 minutes I steamed them 15. They were still a little crunchy, but I thought okay.

  • Baked gnocchi with ricotta and marinara

    • southerncooker on February 10, 2022

      This was a quick, easy, delicious supper. I used cottage cheese instead of Ricotta, since we aren't big fans of Ricotta. I used baby Gnocchi not frozen.

  • Red-leaf lettuce with roasted sweet potatoes and green beans

    • ksg518 on February 20, 2018

      I've made this recipe several times and it's very good. The yogurt dressing is a great low calorie way to top this sort of salad. However, when I've made it in the past I've opted for fresh green beans which I blanch for 2-3 minutes and then add to the sheet pan per the recipe. This time I decided to try the frozen green beans called for in the recipe since it would save time. Did not like it nearly as much and I'll continue to use fresh beans from now on.

  • Pork loin with onions and dried apricots

    • swegener on January 30, 2015

      This was good--my first time ever making a pork loin and it turned out moist. It wasn't super flavorful, but not bad.

  • Soy-ginger chicken

    • weirdsci on January 03, 2016

      Cooks for 1 1/2 hours. Not very quick recipe.

From the Queen of American cookery comes a fabulous collection of recipes - all 500 calories or less, and all big on flavour! Martha Stewart knows it's not enough for home cooks to prepare tasty weeknight meals in a flash - they also need to be healthy and appealing for the whole family. "Martha Stewart's Everyday Light" features delicious, low-fat recipes that are made with accessible ingredients, and each recipe is accompanied by beautiful colour photography to keep you inspired and cooking light every day of the week. The recipes, which are organised seasonally, include salads, soups, stews, main courses, easy sides, desserts, and more. You'll find slimmed-down favourites, such as Beef Chilli, Chicken Parmesan, and deceptively skinny Chocolate-Chunk Brownies, plus new delights such as Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry with Peanuts and Salmon Burgers with Yoghurt-Dill Sauce. With basic low-fat cooking techniques (stir-frying, cooking in parchment, grilling), tips on the 10 best ways to boost flavour without adding fat (including marinades, dressings, herbs and spices), and simple tools for low-calorie cooking (cast-iron skillets and grill pans and steamer baskets), "Martha Stewart's Everyday Light" helps you cook the kind of delicious, healthy food you really want to eat!
