I actually like this one! Sometimes I do have to swap out a dinner here and there for one that I know the entire family will like but I do like her simplicity and the fact that it helps me get out of a cooking rut. I tend to take this book out to use when I'm very busy and don't want to think about choosing dinners for the week or month. Once, after a couple of weeks of regular use, my older son proudly commented about the variety and healthy foods we eat. I was really surprised he was so pleased!

I've tried all of Ely's cookbooks - thankfully from the library first - and the recipes are horrible & tasteless! I even "spruced up" the recipes with my own skill and it didn't help much. You can find much better meal-planning, low calorie, healthy eating elsewhere. Blech.
