I was curious if anyone has looked at these 2 books and what they thought.  Is one better than the other somehow?  If it means anything, I am partial to recipes that don't call for too many ingredients or ingredients I will not use regularly.  Thanks!

I have the Sneaky chef and actually just cooked 2 things from it this weekend. It is good and the stuff was pretty yummy but i ended up messing up both recipes the first time. Her recipes use  her "make ahead recipes" but the make ahead recipes makes 3 cups and the muffin recipe only calls for 3/4 cup of the make ahead recipe. Once i caught on, it was no big deal but it was still frustrating.

The ingredients are not ones that i keep on hand either: for the fruits you want fresh fruits and for the other ingredients, i dont always have white beans or wheat germ.

Hope this helps.
