Canadian sisters Janet and Greta Podleski are back with their latest and greatest cookbook for fans (and new fans!) packed full of over 325 healthy (yes, really!) recipes for the whole family.
In each of their half-hour shows Eat, Shrink and Be Merry on Food Network Canada, Janet and Greta take not-so-healthy favorite recipes and give them a once-over, then taste-test them with people to determine if their healthier recipe makes the cut. If you’re a fan of the show, and healthy eating in general (I think we all aspire to eat healthier, whether we achieve this is debatable), you should check out this cookbook!
Ironically enough, my own sister was visiting when I received my copy of The Looneyspoons Collection in the mail along with a note from Greta Podleski herself. Talk about getting some street-cred with your big sister! 😉
I’ve found several recipes I want to try, including Feast From the East – an Asian beef-noodle salad with grilled steak and a sesame-orange dressing (using whole wheat spaghetti noodles and yummy veggies!) and Simply Orange Chicken – a skillet-cooked chicken using mandarin oranges in the sauce. Yum!
My friend Melanie, coincidentally enough, shared this photo on her Facebook wall this weekend. She made these delicious looking Pimped-Out Pumpkin Pie Pancakes! I can’t wait to try them now too.
A great addition to this cookbook and something I really love are all the great tidbits of tips and information throughout. Did you know that you should wait at least 10 minutes after mincing, crushing or dicing your garlic before you heat it, to allow the allicin to process (allicin is the compound produced in garlic that helps protect us from cancer and heart disease!) Other great tips like this can be found throughout this book making it more of a coffee-table book than a kitchen-cabinet book!
