Cooking Light Crave is a 336-page book stuffed with 150 recipes for the classic handheld and indulgent foods you love that you might think are nutritionally off limits: Cheesy pizzas, meaty burgers, and sandwiches piled high. This book will be driven visually by in-your-face food photography, with over 270 images. The four large chapters include Burgers; Pizzas; Sandwiches; and Sweets. A visual, short kitchen gear guide in each chapter shows the essential tools you need. A 'better building' section in each chapter shows step-by-step techniques and secrets to making these seriously satisfying eats. Each chapter also gives suggestions and recipes for sauces and condiments, side dishes such as fries, chips, and slaws, and a guide to great breads and cheeses. Pop-culture trivia about these iconic American foods will be peppered throughout the book. Cooking Light Crave offers healthier versions of favorites like Pepperoni Deep Dish Pizza, an 'Out-n-In' California Burger, or a meatball sub. These handheld foods offer plenty of satisfaction, but in portions controlled by the size of the bread. As reported in 'Sandwiches: Culinary Trend Mapping Report' by Packaged Facts and the Center for Culinary Development, '...Some sandwiches are even solving consumers' quandaries over healthful eating by offering more nutritious components in appropriate portion sizes, yet still satisfying with layers of mouthwatering flavor.' (August 2010) Over 150 recipes with full-color photos of cheesy burgers, sandwiches and pizzas, cookies, sundaes, shakes, and more, along with secrets to build and cook these handheld foods like a pro, recipes for condiments and sides, and guides to breads and cheeses.

No other cookbook has as many recipes that I like.


I saw the segment about this book on Access Hollywood Live, with Billy Bush, and I just had to place it on hold. It looks interesting.!!
