My daughter and I love the "cookbooks" and have never found a bad recipe. Eat Shrink and Be Merry has some excellent recipes and they are varied enough to never get bored.

emoticon It's nice to know I'm not alone in the cookbook to beach thing! emoticon

Got online and ordered The Spark, Crazy Plates & the Comfort Food Diet Cookbook...all for about $40 including shipping. WooHoo! Now need to find some beach time to get to reading! LOL

Carol,
I spent 3 years on Oahu almost 30 years ago...and I still miss Hawaii. I too took a cookbook to the beach and read it! We are not alone. emoticon

I love to read cook books...most people think it's a little cooky (LOL)and have had my fair share of odd looks reading a cook book at the beach!

Never read ESBM but have it ordered & am looking forward to the new find!

Hi All..I have some really great news. I wrote Greta and Janet and asked about sharing their recipes on line. And they are delighted for us to do this. All they as is that we give credit to which book it comes from. You can't ask for better than that. Oh, and they wish us luck on the weight loss journey. Happy and healthy cooking and eating to all of us.
(Is there anyone else out there like me who loves reading cookbooks? I will admit this series has been my all time favorites, and I have over 40 years of reading cookbooks.)

I have all three of the books and use them often. I love reading them as much as cooking with them. And the amount of info that is packed in there is great. I have given copies of some of them to family in the US who had never heard of them. My neices and nephews loved them, the puns especially.

Hi everybody! First off I want to say a big thank you for joining this team.

I know it will start small but I'd love to see it grow with time!

What I would really love this to become is an excellent source for reviewing, rating and asking questions about Eat, Shrink and Be Merry recipes (LooneySpoons and Crazy Plates recipes are welcome too!). I'd love for us to be able to get ideas on what to cook next, which recipes are perfect for that family BBQ, or which dishes go best together.

I am also welcoming other healthy recipes, including our own creations! Let's get creative here :)

Just a note - and I hate to have to mention it but please be extra careful about sharing copyrighted, published material. I will be honest - I don't know what the rules are about reproducing recipes from cookbooks, so do this at your own risk!

For those who do not have the book - please check out the "Want to Try?" Forum here where we have close to 50 recipes that the authors have posted online.

That's it for now. See you on the discussion boards!
