The Fat-free Junk Food Cookbook: 100 Recipes of Guilt-Free Decadence
With luscious recipes for everything from Chili-Cheese Crunches to Mocha Kahlua Sherbet, The Fat-Free Junk Food Cookbook puts an irresistibly fresh spin on healthy cooking for the whole family. 10 illustrations. 128 pp. National publicity. 20,000 print.
Why recommend this title when the number of fat-free recipes probably exceeds the number of dieters in the U.S.? For two reasons: Wolfe's wicked sense of humor (e.g., one of his ideas for the disposition of unused egg yolks is to "blend them with latex for a beautiful yellow paint. Note, however, that the room may take on the smell of sulfur."), and concrete ways to recognize and deal with food cravings instead of ignoring the pangs. And these methods not only feature 100 junk-food-like recipes but also include some very practical coping techniques and weight-loss guidelines, such as tricks to avoid gaining poundage during the holidays and instructions for reading food labels between the lines. For convenience treats for the entire family, from easy cheesy fondue to death-by-chocolate-and-then-gone-to-heaven pudding. Barbara Jacobs
