Nutshell: A cookbook filled with 175 heart healthy recipes that feature 12 different ways to prepare your main dishes. This book contains recipes for your crockpot, the grill, broiling and even microwaving along with many more options. Pro's: The color pictures! I love cookbooks with pictures as I am a very visual person and like to see what dishes look like. There was a variety of cooking styles that may suit those looking for a different slant of how dishes are prepared. Con's: Not many recipes were appealing. We are not a tofu family and the majority of recipes use tofu. I found very few healthy sweet recipes and very few recipes that contain main staples in the kitchen. I may be more tempted to prepare some of the recipes if it was just my husband and I, but with two growing kids, I know they may not particularly care for the unusual recipes. (Yes, they do try everything I cook). My pantry does not contain a lot of the buy-once ingredients, not would my budget fit the unusual assortment of items I would need to buy for one recipe. Recommendation: If you are an adventurous cook, this is the book for you. If Beets with Orange Gremolata to Stuffed Chayote Squash make your fingers itch to get cooking, get this book and you may just enjoy some of the interesting dishes it has to offer. The recipe I tried was Stuffed "Baked" Apples. The recipe is found below: 2 T light brown sugar 2 T sweetened dried cranberries 2 T gold raisins 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1 tsp olive oil 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/4 tsp ground ginger 1/4 tsp ground allspice 4 small Granny Smith, Fuji, or Gala apples, halved, cored scared 1/2 cup fresh orange juice 2 T chopped walnuts, dry roasted. In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, cranberries, raisins, cinnamon, oil, nutmeg, ginger and allspice. Put the apples in a shallow 1-quart microwaveable baking dish with a lid. Spoon the stuffing in the apples. Pour the orange juice around the apples. Microwave, covered, on 100 percent power (high) for 6 to 7 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Carefully transfer the apples to serving plates, leaving the juices in the dish. Microwave the remaining juices, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the mixture is reduced by half (to about 1/4 cup). Just before serving, drizzle the juice mixture over the apples, Sprinkle with the walnuts *I served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. I also omitted the walnuts as they are not a favorite in our household. This tasted really good, but hard to eat the skins - they were used more as a bowl to hold the softened apple in. Waterbrook Multnomah sent me this complimentary book to review for them. Opinions expressed are my own, as is the photo of the dessert.

Hey guys! Very sorry I’ve been away for a while but I had surgery and have been under the weather. I’m all good now and I’m back with a review of Grill It, Braise It, Broil It by The American Heart Association. Please read on to find out more! This is my second cookbook by The American Heart Association and they haven’t disappointed me. I love their cookbooks. This cookbook is not the same as their previous book, Go Fresh. Grill It, Braise It, Broil It consists of very heart healthy recipes. It has 175 recipes that would be great for a person with heart problems or cholesterol problems. This book is broken down in 9 sections, each section being a new technique of cooking the food. You have slow cooking, microwaving, blending, grilling, stir-frying, braising, stewing, poaching, broiling, roasting and baking. At the beginning of each section, there is a couple pages devoted to teaching you about the technique and giving you tips about the technique. I haven’t seen that in a cookbook before so I thought that gave it a unique flare. Each recipe has nutritional facts at the bottom of the page so for someone like me who is careful about things they eat, this book is perfect for you. You don’t have to worry that you’re eating something bad or fatty out of this book because it’s all very healthy but very delicious. I’m very excited to try Smoky Chicken and Vegetable Lasagna. I really love this cookbook, however, some recipes I did find to be over the top. What I mean by that is, it calls for ingredients that I’ve never even heard of it or would be expensive/hard to get. Those types of recipes are in the minority; I would have preferred for those to have been left out of the cookbook but oh well. That isn’t enough to make me not like this cookbook. I really love the cover, too. The cover is very eye catching and appealing. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone especially those who enjoy eating healthy. I know I’m thrilled when I discover a new healthy recipe and there are tons to discover in this book. These recipes can be easily recreated by the average home cook so don’t be intimated by fancy names of the recipes. The cookbook has a lot to offer and is a perfect addition to a cookbook collection! I give it 5+ stars! I received this book for free from Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest review.
