I bought this cookbook when my husband was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I have been using it now for 4 weeks, and there are some good points and bad. I really like the idea, and having a weekly grocery list pre-prepared is great. Some of the recipes are rather bland, but overall easy. I have found some really good ones too, we especially like the side dish recipes. I do have 2 big complaints: I wonder if some of the recipes were ever tried by the author. For example, the recipe for Greek Lemon Chicken and rice has a marinade for the chicken that is then supposed to be cooked to a boil to use as a sauce, the recipe yielded so little marinade it barely covered the chicken much less left enough over to create a sauce. My 2nd big complaint is there are a few recipes where cooking temperatures and times have been left out.Updated Review 7/30/2010.So we have been using this cookbook I would say 75% of the time for almost a full year, and I stand by my original review of 3 stars maybe even going down to 2 1/2 stars. I still really like the idea of having a years worth of recipes planned out, with meals and shopping lists organized a week at a time. Taste wise most of the recipes are good, the ones I did not like were more to do with personal tastes and preference than recipe. The side dish recipes are still my favorite. Along with with the sandwich recipes, there is a roasted vegetable sandwich that my husband absolutely loves. Health wise, my husband has dropped from pre-diabetic to a normal blood sugar range. But, he did also take up a very stringent exercise regime of running 3 miles a day, etc.Now for my complaints. As far as meal planning goes, this book has some major flaws.
