Cookbook Review: The Skinnytaste Cookbook

I have been very excited to get my copy of The Skinnytaste Cookbook by Gina Homolka with Heather K. Jones, R.D. First let me say that the book is pretty good size. There’s a little over 300 pages and it’s hardback. The book is filled with beautiful pictures of many of the recipes. The author starts the book with “The Skinny Basics” which gives some great tips on eating healthy. She talks about making a plan, keeping it simple, portion size, and giving your kitchen a skinny makeover.

Most recipes have a picture along with it. Which I always feel is such a plus in a cookbook. We eat with our eyes and it’s difficult to know if we want to make something if we don’t know what the recipe looks like. So I was very happy that Ms. Homolka included so many.

Some recipes that really stood out to me were Make-Ahead Western Omelet Muffins, Too-Good-to-be-true Baked Potato Soup, “Un”Stuffed Cabbage Soup, Chicken Philly Cheesesteaks, Loaded “Nacho” Potato Skins, Turkey Santa Fe Taco Salad with Avocado Crema, Chicken Marsala on the Lighter Side,So-Addicted Chicken Enchiladas, black bean burrito bowls and so much more! So many things look good and they feature ingredients that are easy to find.

I’m hoping to make another recipe very soon from one of the cookbooks I have already reviewed. Hopefully I can soon get to where I am posting the recipe along with the cookbook review. I just need to get better organized. :) This seems like a great cookbook and I will be sure to post a recipe from it soon to update y'all on what I thought.
