My Review:
This cookbook is put out by the American Heart Association for heart healthy cooking as well as shopping and storage tips. The cookbook was full of delicious recipes such as: Chicken and red lentil soup or Triple citrus refreshers. My main problem with the book is that with each recipe there was no picture to give you an idea how the recipe was to look like. Yes there were pictures in the book, but they were all together in the middle of the book and they were not a complete showing of all the recipes. I also liked the idea of the nutritional values per serving listed after each recipe as well as most of the ingredients in the recipes were one that most people would have in their pantry/cabinets in the kitchen or easily available at the grocery store.
