the cook(book)ing school: Forget the Multiple Pots and Pans, Try One Dish (low calorie) Meals!

The 300 Calorie One-Dish Meal Cookbook by Nancy S. Hughes

Written in 1992, The 300- Calorie One Dish Meal Cookbook, was on the cusp of the low calorie meal movement. And as a person who doesn’t necessarily enjoy multiple pots and pans on the stove with multiple components and parts to a meal, I really appreciate the fact that this cookbook is all about “one-dish” meals. This is a vintage cookbook, chock full of great easy recipes. I will add it to my collection.

the cook(book)ing school: Taking Your Tasebuds To New Locations – The African Kitchen

The Africa Kitchen by Josie Stow

The African Kitchen is a great resource for anyone looking to dive into a specific style of cuisine. It’s especially great for those who are also very into learning more about ethnic cooking and where the origins of certain foods come from. And if it’s not economical for your to swing a trip to Africa any time soon, this will be a great substitute. This will definitely be an addition to my cookbook library.

the cook(book)ing school: Counting Calories? Check out this Vintage cookbook for tips!

The 1200 Calorie A Day Cookbook by Nancy S. Hughes

I’m starting to like these cookbooks with a “set menu” style of meal planning. I don’t enjoy having to come up with new meals everyday so the more cookbooks like The 1200 Calorie A Day Cookbook I can find will make my life much easier. And although this book was published in 1994 and there have been new versions of this type of cookbook, this one is still a great resource with some great recipes. I definitely recommend this as an addition to your cookbook collection.

the cook(book)ing school: keep your family healthy

Healthy Family by Better Homes and Gardens

With so much news focused on America’s obesity levels and the move of even fast food restaurants to encourage us to eat healthy, here is a tried and true find that I think will do us all some good. Although it’s a little dated (written in 1995), The Better Homes and Gardens, Healthy Family Cookbook offers a vivid variety of recipes that seem easy to make and healthy. I recommend this as an addition to your cookbook collection and if you are looking for deals on vintage used cookbooks, it’s available for only around $5.00 on Amazon.

the cook(book)ing school: for low-carb lovers

Atkins for Life Low-Carb Cookbook by Veronica Atkins

Everyone knows about The Atkins Diet, but after the founder, Dr. Robert Atkins passed away in 2003, his wife Veronica Atkins, kept the spirit of one of the most successful diets going and wrote Atkins For Life: low-carb cookbook in 2004, as a companion to the Atkins for Life book by Dr. Robert Atkins. As a person who is currently exploring different diet plans, I, like everyone else, have always known about Atkins, but this is the first time I have actually picked up an Atkins book and I love it! The photos are vivid and easy to assemble. The recipe I tried was the Stir-Fried Ginger-Garlic Greens on page 31 (and I added chicken). It was delicious. I’m definitely an Atkins convert and I intend to adapt a more purposeful low-carb diet.  And I will definitely be adding this cookbook to my collection.

the cook(book)ing school: A Little Food to Go With Your Wine

Food & Wine Magazine‘s 2002 Annual Cookbook

Food & Wine Magazine’s 2002 Cookbook is a collection of their annual recipes and I might add a very good one.  I used to subscribe to Food & Wine Magazine but now that I know they publish an annual cookbook, I will just wait for the book.  I most definitely want to try the Brazilian Chicken Stew on page 193. LOL. It looks delicious.
