One of My Favorite Cookbooks, September 16, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from MD USA
The previous edition of this book is one of my favorite cookbooks. Before I got it, I was in a real snack rut. But Ruth certainly widened my appreciation of snacking. One thing I like is the way she gives you options. You can buy a crust for her Barbecued Chicken Pizza or make your own, if you're in the mood. It was fun to find out I could make things at home that I thought I could only get in a restaurant, like Egg Rolls and Pesto. There are even a couple of healthy versions of "Egg 'N Muffins." Some recipes are for things you eat right away. Others make bigger quantities, so you can eat some now and then have something yummy to pull out of the refrigerator-or enjoy snacking with friends.
One chapter is devoted to food for kids. And there are all sorts of neat recipes designed to make it fun for them to eat healthy snacks. Two of the recipes are named "Celery Man" and "Aladdin's Pizza." And there are directions for turning canned pear halves into cute little mice.
I also like the chapter on appetizers for grownups, like cocktail meatballs and chili con queso. When I bring them to parties, everybody loves them, and I don't have to worry about what I can nosh on, because these dishes are not only delicious but healthy.
The new version adds some great recipes to the book. There's a cranberry orange tart that's going to be a standard at our family Thanksgiving dinners. Another new favorite is the sweet potato pie with a really easy low-fat crust. And I love the New York style cheesecake and the teriyaki chicken bites.
