I may try some of the recipes. They seemed easy enough for me.
by American Heart Association Is the newest edition of this classic cookbook. This basic cook book belongs in the kitchen of every chef and family. Not only does it include a variety of hear healthy recipes- low fat and low cholesterol meal choices- it includes everything from basic to more advanced recipes for every level of chef. If you are looking for a basic cookbook containing a variety of basic recipes to appeal to a family, friends and guests of all ages, this is the only cookbook you will need. This would make a great house warming gift for anyone who is moving into their first home as well. The one thing I would change is to at least include a color insert of photographs of selected recipes. There were no photographs included in this cookbook other than the photos on the cover. At minimum, I'd expect a cookbook to have some photos at least. Considering the suggested retail price, this is one thing that bothered me. I'd imagine there are many chefs who probably won't mind that there are no photos included, but some basic and beginner home cooks might like at least some visual content of what the finished meal should look like. As a blogger I received a copy of this cookbook for the purpose of writing this review.
