FIRST SENTENCE: Comfort food is the food that makes us feel good - satisfied, calm, cared for, and carefree.

SUMMARY: [From] In Comfort Food Fix, Ellie Krieger presents a healthier take on classic American comfort food—without sacrificing the comfort part. These 150 soul-satisfying recipes include such hearty favorites as meatloaf, lasagna, chicken potpie, crab cakes, and mashed potatoes, but without all the calories and saturated fat. With simple tricks and tips, Ellie serves up healthy delights like delicious sweet potato casserole with just a third of the calories and amazing buttermilk waffles with just a fraction of the fat. With full nutrition information for every recipe and gorgeous full-color photos that are sure to whet any appetite, Comfort Food Fix is the perfect cookbook for healthy eaters with healthy appetites. 

THOUGHTS: Yum! I flagged so many recipes in this I might as well just cook the whole book. The recipes in this book all look wonderful. I enjoy the simple and straightforward way Krieger writes her recipes. I also love how many recipes are introduced with a quick story. Yes, that might upsell the food, but I am willing to buy it.

RATING: 7/10 [Very Good]
