Exclusive Recipe Excerpts from the 100-Calorie Snack Cookbook
5 Stars Greak book for snacks!
Just recieved it less than a week after order. Great recipes for those who likes snacks, recommend it!
3 Stars Not for kids!
I got this book to try to think of clever snacks for my overweight 4 yr old. It was not at all what I was expecting. There was hardly anything in the whole book she would touch. There wasn’t much I would eat in it either. All the snacks were really “fancy”. Things that most people would not take the time or money to go out and purchase. Most didn’t sound all that yummy either. Try looking at it in the local bookstore before buying, so you don’t have to return it like I did.
5 Stars Yummy & Low-Cal….
The 100-Calorie Snack Cookbook by Sally Sampson is a wonderfully creative cookbook filled with delicious, low-calorie snacks. A valuable resource for those trying to watch their calorie intake, 100-Calorie Snack Cookbook has some scrumptious and filling options for low-cal fare. A few of my favorites: Congee (exploded rice soup), Pomegranate Sangria, Banana Cocoa Malted (beverage), and Portobello Mushroom with mozzarella and tomato. These, of course, are just a few of the delicious recipes you’ll find inside Sampson’s 100-Calorie Snack Cookbook. Along with each recipe, you’ll find a brief paragraph outlining the author’s take on the snack – sometimes witty, sometimes informative, but always written in a personal, friendly style. Handy nutritional facts are listed for each recipe, too. Colorful photos appear for nearly every single recipe, giving the book a visual appeal that will have your mouth watering.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to stick to their diet. The tasty 100-calorie snacks it contains are well worth looking into – particularly if, like me, you are tired of the same boring low-cal snacks you’re eating now. Fresh and original, you won’t be disappointed with the 100-Calorie Snack Cookbook.
4 Stars Good Snack Book
I just received my book a few days ago, and I am pleasantly pleased at the recipes. Granted there area few recipes that are not to my liking or may appear “fancy”, (But I can’t think of any recipe book where I like all the entries) but in general this book has many recipes that I am very interested in trying, and soon. I was afraid there were going to be to many weird or unusual recipes.
Do these sound to unusual and weird?
Hot and spicy nuts
Cajun Chex Mix
Peanut butter & “Jelly”
Popcorn with Basil and Parmesan
Honey Peanut Butter bites
Pita with Yogurt and cukes
Chocolate Match Sticks
Mini Cranberry muffins
Ice burg Quarters w/ BleuCheese
Shrimp with spiced salt
Canadian Bacon w/ Brn sugar and mustard
Smoked Ham Pita
Peaches and “cream”
Rice crispy treats
Chocolate cereal bites
PB&J Rice treats
To think I almost didn’t buy this book because of the negative reviews! As long as your not expecting small portions of flat out junk food, or kiddy type food, you should enjoy this book fine.
1 Star Don’t waste your money
There’s not one thing in this book that I would like. Most are not quick fix foods. I gave the book away.
