Geared to today's hectic lifestyle, this engaging cookbook encourages readers to find pleasure in healthy food. Author Anne Egan knows what she's talking about: her recipes have appeared in Good Housekeeping, Working Mother, and Women's World magazines. Here she offers more than 200 healthy versions of family favorites as well as new dishes which are sure to become classics. Most recipes include a boxed health tip, ingredient variations, or leftover serving suggestions. Unlike most cookbooks, the chapters are organized by favorite food groups, like "The Pizza Parlor" and "Pasta and More Pasta." The delightful "Perfecting the Potato" chapter will make boiled and baked a thing of the past with healthy versions of restaurant classics, like Super Stuffed Potatoes, Potato Basil Gnocchi and Spicy Tuscan Fries. With full-color photographs and a reader-friendly design, The New Classics Cookbook will help today's busy cook relax and enjoy cooking for good health.
