Skinny-licious Recipes that taste good, help you eat healthy and lose weight too. Review on Mom Loves 2 Read

About the Book:
Eat yourself skinny! Registered nurse and award winning cook Shauna Evans proves that you don't need to give up your favorite foods in order to slim down. 

You can enjoy tasty recipes like Lime and Cilantro Shrimp Skewers, Stuffed Red Peppers, and Cherry Chocolate Cake, all while losing weight and feeling great. Healthy cooking has never been easier!

My Review:
I have a whole slew of cookbooks, cooking magazines and recipe books around my home.  I have a few favorites that I use regularly, several with some favorite recipes highlighted or marked with some sort of sticky tag, and several that I plan to someday sit down and look through for new ideas.
When offered the chance to review a cookbook with healthy recipes to aid in healthier eating habits and possible weight loss, I was excited to give it a try.  I looked over all the recipes in the book and found several that I plan to try.  I like recipes that use items I keep in my pantry, keep on hand or at least am comfortable cooking with.  I do not like to have cookbooks or recipes that use expensive ingredients or ones that are unusual or not easy to find.  
Skinny-licious has a combination of both - recipes with ingredients that I do not keep on hand or would not use on a daily basis, but also quite a few recipes that are easy, simple and fun to make.  I like the variety, and the options to try something new.  It is a nice cookbook to add to my collection and one that I will be using for several new recipes I can't wait to try!
