I bought this book for my parents. My dad recently suffered a heart attack and they wanted to reduce/eliminate the salt intake. This cookbook has delicious recipes that are easy and use ingredients that are already in your pantry!
This is my new go-to cookbook for most night's dinners. I do add salt to the recipes (it's designed for a low-sodium diet, but none of us have to watch our sodium intake too closely), and the resulting recipes taste great. There's a really great variety of recipes, and although I've used it only for entrees so far, it has side dishes, appetizers, snacks, beverage, and desserts that also sound good. It am actually excited to try them (and I'm not someone who adores cooking).
In the few weeks I've had the cookbook, I've made Beef and Vegetable Soup, Chinese-Style Chicken, Coriander-Coated Chicken, Chicken and Rice, Plum Good Chicken, Quick Cassoulet, Chicken Jambalaya, and Summer Succotash. (I just realized I haven't tried any seafood recipes from this book yet, but there are several I want to try.) Most were super tasty; only the Plum Good Chicken was disappointing (a bit too sweet, and noodles were overcooked). The recipes use ingredients I hadn't thought to use...
I especially like the menu-planning ideas at the front of the book. A good starting point, as I plan out my week's menus. Haven't has the book very long, but so far the recipes have been good and quick as advertised.
