Reviews Everyday Food

  • Carol
    3.5 stars for these lighter recipes..Some interesting easy recipes, not all appealed to me though.I did appreciate the lighter versions of some of the more classic dishes though and I also liked 👍 how the book was arranged with a seasonal approach. This is nice for people like me that prefer to cook based on what is ripe and readily available at the market or store.

    Recipes are DoableWhat I love about this book are the pictures of each dish! I want to know what the final product is suppose to be like for two reasons. First, I want to see what I will be eating as you eat with you eyes first. If it looks good, then I am more likely to make that dish. Second, once I make the dish, does it look like the picture? If not, it will help me figure out what I did wrong. I also like that the "lightened up" part is thor...

    Everyday Food was a great magazine and this is a great cookbook. Easy to find ingredients, simple techniques, generally pretty family friendly. There are a ton of great recipes in here, with full nutritional information. The fish and deserts were particularly strong.The book is organized by seasons, from heavy to light. This makes sense in a way, but can make it hard to find things and it’s not always logical. But it’s almost perfect - a grea...

    So difficult to navigate these "light" recipe collections when you're allergic to shellfish and avocado. I also would have appreciated it if the kindle version would have allowed for a table of contents that would let me browse the recipes by more than just season.
  • Stephanie Lambert
    Good as alwaysI subscribed to everyday food for years and learned to cook from them.Some of these recipes are repeats but better to have them in one location than in smaller less hardy books taking up space.

    I think this book would be more useful for someone new to cooking or lacking in common sense. I am neither of those things.
  • Cat
    Everybody loves a bit of Martha don't they? She's at it again with lovely recipes, this time light and calorie conscious. I can't wait to get cooking some of these.
  • Jen E
    I love the pictures in this cookbook. I've yet to make a recipe, but definitely want to in the near future!
  • Shauna
    Good, solid recipesI've liked all the ones I've made, but sometimes I wish that it wasn't so squash and lentil heavy. The mashed looked particularly unappetizing.

    Martha Stewart has over 35 years of experience in the catering industry. While maybe less of a household name in the UK, she is absolutely considered the queen of cooking and baking over the pond.This book offers a collection of quick and light recipes, all coming in under 500 calories. At this time of year, after the excesses of Christmas, who isn’t on a diet? This book is perfectly timed in its release.The 250 recipes are split into four sect...

    The Good Stuff * Good layout and organization of recipes * Good variety of recipes * Wife says the index is bloody wonderful - but this would only be important to seriously anal library workers & nerds (Jen's note - nice eh, if he didn't cook as well as he did I might have to kick him to the curb for that) * Recipes have simple easy to understand instructions, not too much prep time and most of the ingredients are readily available even here in t...

    My unapologetic love for Martha Stewart is no secret. So this may be biased. But I think everyone can agree that the woman knows how to make a good cookbook. I own a few of her other cookbooks, and while I love them (obviously), sometimes the recipes are a little too rich - a little too old school for me. Sure, using butter to flavor everything tastes great, but my metabolism just isn’t into it. So when I stumbled across this gem - Everyday FOO...
  • David
    I've been surprised by how many recipes in this book I've enjoyed, and repeated multiple times. A really nice collection of simple, affordable, and quick meals. Good and affordable collection for those looking for options to lighten up traditional meals. Also good for beginners to get a good variety of starter recipes. One concern, I'm consistently finding myself adding additional herbs and seasonings to recipes that either call for too little or...

    I've just started getting into cooking within the past 6 months and this has been the perfect intro for me. Almost everything I've made from this book has been great! It's also been a good bonding experience for me and my dad as he likes to act as my "sous chef". The meals taste good while still being healthy - and my dad is diabetic and these meals never spike his sugars.Definitely a well-worth it purchase.
  • Natasha A.
    Lots of good ideas for light cooking.I love that it's divided by the seasons - makes knowing what produce is going to be available AND is nice to have lighter offerings for the summer.Many of the recipes have 5-10 ingredients or less.Many of the recipes because of the limited number of ingredients seem to be bland when I combine in my head. I will have to try some of the and see what my taste buds think!
  • Elisabeth
    UGH! January is here again so it is time to rein in the scale, tight pants, & big meals. Thankfully Martha offers some easy delicious recipes in this book that are less than 500 calories each. I really like the first two books she (and her staff) did. Nothing terribly daring or cutting edge, but when I am stymied at the end of a long work day, these books help me whip up something tasty in an hour or less.
  • Robbin Risley
    This book was a valuable purchase. I've made more than 15 of the recipes, and have found a few favourites, which I keep making. The only criticism I have is that the 'low calorie' distinction of the recipes is sometimes due to (very) small portions.
  • Jodie
    I love these recipe books. The recipes from this magazine are just so easy to do. I love the ideas and the fairly quick prep. I have every issue of the magazine and every one of the books. Just really great stuff. Don't miss out on the awesome!

  • Rachel Rogers
    A quick skim through led to a few things to make if I keep the book long enough. Good tips for cutting fat by adding flavor.
  • Melissa
    Omg, I want to make EVERYTHING in this book. I already made this orange juice and mustard vinaigrette - yummy! I look forward to many good meals.
  • Mckinley
    Some tasty looking recipes -also explains why they are lighter than normal.
  • Jennifer Shields
    Food I actually made from this book came out right. Good job Martha! You taught this baby how to walk.
  • Andrea
    Love that there is a photo of EVERY recipe, a must for me!
  • Caroline
    Nice variety of recipes, arranged seasonally, with an emphasis on lighter methods of cooking. Many vegetarian choices included.
  • Terry
    A good one - found many recipes that I want to try.
  • Adrienna
    There are a few recipes and desserts I will copy/print out for future reference to try out.
  • Kirsten
    Did not "read" the book but I did try some recipes of things that we enjoy eating here at our place. There are a few that we will repeat so I feel it was worth the borrowing from the library.
  • Pam
    This is my go-to cookbook. Great ideas for changing things up from the same-old things we always make.
