Looneyspoons Collection Cookbook is the fourth in a series of fun, delicious and healthy cookbooks. Sisters Janet and Greta Podleski wrote their first low fat cookbook, Looneyspoons, in 1996. After a huge success they released Crazy Plates, with 150 more scrumptious, health-conscious recipes using common, easy-to-find ingredients.

They were now unstoppable. People no longer had to sacrifice taste to cut the fat. These recipes are some of the tastiest I have ever tried—low fat or not.

The Podleski sisters went on to do it again and came out with Eat, Shrink and Be Merry.

Now they have put some of their favourite recipes together in the book Looneyspoons Collection.

The recipes are easy to make, with easy-to-find ingredients. But besides recipes, which all have punny titles such as Worth Every Penne, the Thigh’s the Limit, To Stir with Love, etc., you will find interesting facts, lots of photos and plenty of extra tips on how to change your eating habits to become healthier.

I am an experimental type of cook and usually use a recipe to just give me a general idea of what to do. But I have found with these recipes that if I follow them to the exact measurement, they turn out amazingly. It is one of the few cookbooks that I will pick up and read for the fun of reading, even if I am not thinking about cooking. 

If you are looking for some new, unique ideas for meals and want some fast and simple recipes, you don't have to look any further than the Looneyspoons Collection.

I am now waiting and wondering when they will put out yet another fabulous book.
