My Opinion
There is no shame in being frugal; in fact, these days it’s almost a necessity.  How to be more careful with your money is on everyone’s minds lately, so why not also “trim the fat” in the kitchen?   I thought that I was pretty economical in my grocery shopping and cooking.  Apparently there are ways to stretch your grocery dollars even more!  Jonni McCoy provides a Nutritional Analysis Per Serving on each recipe, as well as, a Cost Per Serving.   These bits of information help you stay on track of your nutritional and financial goals.  While I haven’t tried EVERY recipe yet, I can say that the ones I have tried are easy to prepare and tasty.  I have no professional training as a chef, so I was pleased that didn’t need any fancy tools or tricky maneuvers to make the recipes.  At least I can rest knowing that a real Chef has prepared every recipe in the book so as to ensure the accuracy of each recipe, and that it is tasty.  I am very eager to try more recipes and feel quite confident that I won’t be having any difficulties doing so.
Suffice it to say, I’ve made room on my cookbook shelf for Healthy Meals For Less!
