Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Whole-wheat buttermilk waffles

    • cjannace on August 13, 2017

      These waffles were really good! This was the first time using my new waffle maker, so I wasn't sure which setting to use yet. I made these on a 3, but I'll definitely be boosting them up and making them a bit crunchier next time.

  • Pan-roasted broccoli with garlic and anchovy

    • Recluse on February 01, 2012

      Kind of dry, and I couldn't taste the anchovy at all. I don't know if this a fault of the recipe, or with my ingredients. It wasn't terrible, but I won't be doing this or any of the other Pan-Roasted Broccoli variations in this book again.

  • Easy baked brown rice

    • jumali on September 22, 2011

      A dependable recipe. How great can brown rice be, really?

  • Greek-style chickpea salad

    • sweetchefgirl on June 07, 2014

      Great quick summer salad with pantry ingredients. Adjust to fit your taste and textures.

  • Penne with chicken and broccoli

    • Jane on November 14, 2011

      A reasonable everynight dinner. Nothing stunning but tasty and reasonably quick. It seemed like the sauce was going to be too runny initially with 2 cups stock and 1 cup wine but after 15 mins reducing the consistency was just right.

  • Oven-roasted salmon fillets

    • jtodes on December 23, 2015

      The best fish Don has ever made (as of 12/23/2015). He used the tangerine ginger relish

  • Pan-seared salmon with mango salsa

    • eliza on August 27, 2018

      I made the salmon only. I found it a bit too salty for my taste, although I liked the cooking method (ie starting the salmon in a cold pan). Next time I might skip the brining step. Worth another try since the texture of the fish was good.

  • Braised chicken with chard and mustard

    • jumali on November 05, 2010

      I didn't care for this flavor combination--won't make it again.

  • Slow-roasted beef eye round

    • bching on May 08, 2014

      excellent results. used seasoned salt

  • Skillet tamale pie

    • cjannace on October 07, 2016

      This is definitely going in the rotation for hearty, delicious, fall/winter meals. This was easy to make, tasted delicious, and the leftovers were even tasty for breakfast.

  • Skillet rice and beans with corn and fresh tomatoes

    • cpayton3440 on April 13, 2017

      p. 314 of the Healthy Family Cookbook

  • Stir-fried beef and broccoli with classic brown stir-fry sauce

    • julesamomof2 on February 11, 2017

      This and the other several stir fries in this book are my go-to for healthy Asian food. A bit more time consuming due to the chopping and overall precision of the recipes, but very worth it for a fresh, vegetable heavy low fat dinner.

  • Simple spiced whole-wheat muffins

    • cjannace on July 10, 2017

      I wasn't sure about this recipe at first, but I definitely like it when I heat it up a bit in the microwave first. As always seems to happen when I make muffins, despite following the recipe as written, I got 24 muffins out of the recipe. They reheat well after freezing.

  • Better-for-you banana bread

    • Queezle_Sister on February 27, 2014

      An easy sweet quick bread, a bit of yogurt keeps it light, and toasted walnuts provided a bit of bitter counterpoint. Only the smallest hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, not distracting.

  • Applesauce snack cakes

    • Analyze on March 12, 2019

      This is SO good! The base cake has a wonderful apple flavor and a great texture. I tried both this recipe, and the Oat-Nut Streusel variation. My husband, who doesn't normally like oat streusel or sweet quick breads, loved the streusel variation. I actually preferred this original version with the cinnamon-sugar topping, as in my opinion it complements the apple flavor in the cake better, and actually makes the cake taste more apple-y. You can't go wrong with either version, or try half and half like I did :) I already have several apple cake recipes that I love, and didn't think I needed another, but I did! I'm excited to try the ginger-cardamom version next. Personally, we had it for breakfast, but this would be great with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream too.
