New Cookbook

One of my hobbies is collecting cookbooks. I bought a new one this weekend, Ellie Krieger's "The Food You Crave." Ellie Krieger hosts a show on Food Network and she is a registered dietician and nutrition. My husband and I have started eating healthier, and this week we found out he has extremely high cholesterol, which is what promted me to buy this cookbook. Now I'll really be watching what we eat. What I love about this cookbook is she takes a lot of classic dishes that we have grown up on, but does them in a more healthful way. If you don't deprive yourself than you won't over indulge. Each recipe has the nutritional information of the dish. She also shares great tips for shopping and snacking and dispels myths about certain foods. There are so many great sounding recipes in this book, I guarantee you'll be seeing them here. Cheers to a healthy life!


  1. I like cookbooks, too but I am a bit particular what I collect. There are SO many useless ones out there. In fact, of my collection, I generally use only about half a dozen.

    Check out my latest (Nov/08). It’s getting great reviews:

    Tried and True Recipes from a Caterer’s Kitchen—Secrets of Making Great Foods

    On Amazon, etc.

  2. George, I'll definitely check out your cookbook. I often throw friends baby/bridal showers and I love entertaining. I'm sure it will be helpful for my own "catering."
