I received a copy of the The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook: Great-Tasting Recipes That Keep You Lean by Tosca Reno from the library.
It boasts over 150 recipes, and it’s very well written with beautiful full color photographs. Although the recipes looked and sounded pretty delicious, I don’t think it would be a book that I would buy. Not that the recipes were complicated, it’s that there were occasionally ingredients I didn’t regularly keep in my pantry. Maybe a bit too frilly fancy, I guess prefer more basic recipes, which sounds kind of strange, because the recipes aren’t necessarily complex.
On a negative note, I found the text formatting difficult to read. For instance, the actual ingredient is formatted in a contrasting color. I found this more difficult to comprehend when reading. I think it might have been possibly better to use a bold formatting instead of a color to highlight the ingredient name.
I love reading cookbooks, like some people love reading novels! I am inspired by recipes, and enjoy learning ideas from cookbooks; I like putting my own spin on a recipe rather than exactly following it. Please keep in mind that my opinions might be completely different from the other home cooks.
