MY THOUGHTS -
This cook book received tons of great reviews on Amazon. In giving it 2 stars I am not implying that it is a bad cook book, just that it was not for me. It was not suited to my cooking style and personal tastes.

This book is a beautiful book! I was impressed with the quality of it. It had hundreds of recipes and lots of nice colored photos. 

The chapters are -
One Pot Meals
Hearty Mains and Sides
Sunrise Eats
Sweet Treats
Beverages
All Things Smooth and Crunchy

I did mark a few recipes that sounded good to me -
Pink Salmon Chowder
Wonder Fish Tacos
Super Salmon Ptties
Apple Cinnamon Swirl Muffins

A couple of problems with this book are that they use quite a few ingredients regularly that I don't normally use (and am not going to start) - Integral collagen, Sunflower Lecithin, MTC Oil, Not Naughty Noodles, Nutritional yeast, Gluccie, and stevia - some of these items I have never even heard of! 
And A LOT of the recipes include meat and I am a vegetarian. I know I can just leave the meat out. But I do like to look at this in cook books. And as far as being healthy and good for you, in my opinion - these could be healthier by simply leaving out the bacon! Yes, I said bacon.

So again - Some people might love this book (obviously a lot of people do!) but I would say it is not for everyone!

Thank you Blogging for Books for sending me this cook book for my honest review.
