 The Skinnytaste Cookbook: Light on Calories, Big on Flavor
About the Book:
Get the recipes everyone is talking about in the debut cookbook from the wildly popular blog Skinnytaste

Gina Homolka is America’s most trusted home cook when it comes to easy, flavorful recipes that are miraculously low-calorie and made from all-natural, easy-to-find ingredients. Her blog, Skinnytaste is the number one go-to site for slimmed down recipes that you’d swear are anything but. It only takes one look to see why people go crazy for Gina’s food: cheesy, creamy Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli with only 420 calories per serving, breakfast dishes like Make-Ahead Western Omelet "Muffins" that truly fill you up until lunchtime, and sweets such as Double Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies that are low in sugar and butter-free but still totally indulgent.

The Skinnytaste Cookbook features 150 amazing recipes: 125 all-new dishes and 25 must-have favorites. As a busy mother of two, Gina started Skinnytaste when she wanted to lose a few pounds herself. She turned to Weight Watchers for help and liked the program but struggled to find enough tempting recipes to help her stay on track. Instead, she started “skinny-fying” her favorite meals so that she could eat happily while losing weight.

With 100 stunning photographs and detailed nutritional information for every recipe, The Skinnytaste Cookbook is an incredible resource of fulfilling, joy-inducing meals that every home cook will love.

My Review:
 I have been a fan of the Skinnytaste blog for a long time, so when I seen this review cross my path---I was overjoyed!! I'm so glad Gina is getting to share her awesome recipes with the entire world and on a bonus note I noticed that this cookbook is now a best seller. Love it! She deserves it for all she has done to help us all eat a little healthier! Love this lady and her food!!! Now on to all the yummy stuff this book has to offer.

 This cookbook has a lot to offer all of us no matter what type of food lifestyle you follow. Gina also gives the basic run down on a "skinny kitchen". She does this in order to get you ready for all those delicious recipes up ahead in the book. Her cookbook has a gourmet type feel but as you will see there are recipes for Chicken Marsala along with Fish Tacos--so she is able to touch each palate as well.

 Not to be undone with all the vibrant tastes and flavors there is also a "sweet" section. How does a Silky Chocolate Cream Pie sound? Or maybe you are in the mood for Summer Berry Cobbler made with blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries. YUM! This cookbook would make a great gift this holiday season, with over 300 pages and 150 recipes along with brilliant photography, you just can't lose!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Blogging for Books.
