Book Review of I Can't Believe It's Not Fattening!: Over 150 Ridiculously Easy Recipes for the Super Busy

reviewed on + 44 more book reviews

I like the book, but far prefer Alexander's The Most Decadent Diet Ever. 23 recipes are for breakfast, 19 of the recipes are sandwiches -- so frankly I'm not likely to use nearly a third of the recipes. We have liked the recipes I've tried, but I find my hand keeps reaching for the other book, in part because the color of the font used for some of the recipes has insufficient contrast to the white page to be sufficiently legible by my middle-aged eyes. And it's not just me - a house guest shook her head and put the book to one side after trying to read the recipe for the dish I had served for dinner.
