Enlightened Home Cooking
Great taste, great health and a great way to help others are all packed into cookbook guru Rose Reisman's newest collection of recipes, Rose Reisman's Enlightened Home Cooking. In it she proves how tasty, satisfying and quick-and-easy healthful, low-fat meals can be for the entire family.
The more than 180 recipes included in Rose Reisman's Enlightened Home Cooking provide every home cook with the tools to invent a whole new "enlightened" family cuisine. The book opens with a simple, straightforward discussion of "Family Nutrition." Ten chapters follow, grouping together recipes for everything from "Appetizers," "Soups" and "Salads" to "Chicken," "Meat," "Vegetables" and "Pasta and Grains," all the way through to "Desserts." and the "Menus for Everyone" guide that closes the book helps any cook prepare a tantalizing culinary experience for everything from the family barbecue to a lavish party buffet.
One very special chapter, "Kid's Favorites," has been created exclusively for young and teen-aged children and contains suggestions for "secretly healthy" dishes like Italian Pizza Egg Rolls, Honey Coated Crunchy Chicken Fingers and Triple Chocolate Brownies. Medical experts agree that good dietary habits in children between the ages of five and fifteen may have lifelong health benefits, and Rose Reisman helps parents work toward achieving that goal.
Grown-ups will be no less delighted with heart-healthy foods like Pesto and Red Pepper Tortilla Bites, Potato Cheddar Cheese Soup, Swordfish with Mango Coriander Salsa, Hoisin Garlic Burgers or Marble Mocha Cheesecake. Each recipe comes complete with tips for preparing or substituting and make-ahead instructions, as well as a nutritional analysis listing calories, fat and fiber content, and protein, carbohydrate, sodium and cholesterol values. Plus, to make these suggestions completely irresistible, each dish can be made in thirty minutes or less!
Finally, as with her earlier books, a portion of the sales of Rose Reisman's Enlightened Home Cooking will be donated to the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization to help in the reduction, treatment and study of breast cancer in North America. Rose Reisman's previous cookbooks (with more than 500,000 copies in print!) include Rose Reisman Brings Home Light Pasta, Rose Reisman Brings Home Light Cooking, Rose Reisman Brings Home Spa Desserts and Manhattan's Dessert Scene: New York City's Top Dessert Spots Reveal Their Secret Recipes.
