Book Overview

Joan Lunden is America's favorite morning television host -- which means 25 million people see her every weekday. So you can just imagine how she felt five years ago when her weight problem was at its worst. Three pregnancies, three kids, a high-pressure career, and a much-publicized divorce had undermined her every effort to rose weigh. But then Joan decided to fight back -- and today she's trim, fit, and happier than ever. In this wonderfully inspiring...

Great healthy cooking for the real modern family

Totally love this cookbook. I use it at least once a week and I think what I love most is that it healthy weight conscious cooking for families that have limited time and love to eat. Every single recipe is a winner. It isn't fussy at all. This is a really good book for cooks that appreciate the simplicity and taste of Mark Bittman's books and want to serve their families good healthy modern food that doesn't stint on taste.

Celebrity cookbook for real people

Most cookbooks I buy end up on a dusty shelf mainly because I cannot spend time on elaborate recipes during my busy day. I was given this book at my bridal shower over 5 years ago, and I've been using it religiously since then. I usually cook healthy things and am always looking for simple recipes and things that taste good even though they are healthy. And this book has it all. She writes a candid story about her weight battles, and then the delicious recipes follow. She has collected them over time with the help of her family, coworkers, guests on GMA, favorite restaurants, etc. They are segregated into the usual cookbook sections with the addition of some new ones, like dishes that kids love. My favorite recipes would have to be the spicy tomato soup and Academy Award Winning chiliburgers. This was a great gift that definitely is not collecting dust.

Excellent recipes!

The recipes are fast, easy, and taste great! My husband's favorite is probably the Curried Chicken Salad with Mango - it's a miracle that I can get him to eat a salad for dinner. Now my mom wants it for Christmas.

Its a sticky page book!

Joan makes a comment in the book that she hopes it becomes the readers stickypage book. The one you go back to time after time and the pages become sticky from use. It has for me. I was very apprehensive about purchasing a "celebrity" cookbook..looked at it and thumbed the pages no less than six times. But its worth the purchase price for the recipes alone. You don't have to read about Joan if you don't want to. The recipes are fantastic and everyone I have served to guests has elicited raves and requests for copies of the recipes
