Cooking Light Way to Bake Cookbook Review & Giveaway

3/1/12: Giveaway Over, Congrats to Patty Johnsonp! Comments are now closed.

It’s time for another cookbook Giveaway. I can’t believe it’s been more than a month since the last one. Where does the time go?

But first, a confession: I’m a cookbook addict. (There I’ve admitted. I feel better. Thank you.)

For years I’ve tried to contain my passion for cookbooks without success. Recently, I’ve decided to just go with it. It’s who I am – a cookbook lover and collector. So, these days I more freely let books come in and go out of my life without anxiety or guilt.

My life is more relaxed as a result.

As soon as I spotted Cooking Light Way to Bake: The Complete Visual Guide to Healthy Baking – delicious recipes, fresh healthy ingredients, smart tools & techniques at Costco a couple of months back I knew I wanted to take it home. So I did. I read it, admired it’s beautiful photography and picked up a few new healthy light baking tips.

And now I’m ready to pass it on. So, I’m giving away my ever-so-gently just-read-once copy to one lucky person. I hope it’s you!

First, my review and then the giveaway details…

Cookbook Review: Cooking Light Way To Bake

As the editors explain, “Cooking Light Way to Bake is a celebration of the joy of baking and the pleasure healthier baked treats can bring. Light baking has its own set of techniques, and this book is filled with more than 600 full-color photos showing you exactly how to prepare a wide variety of delectable baked goods, so you get perfect results every time you bake.
This book is perfect for anyone wanting to learn to bake in a lighter and healthier way, without sacrificing flavor and texture, which is what Cooking Light is all about.

Lighter baking can be tricky so technique is important. The book teaches the secrets to light baking success and includes hundreds of tips, as well as, nutrition information.

Chapters Include, Way to Bake; Muffins & Quick Breads; Biscuits & Scones; Waffles, Pancakes & Crepes; Cookies & Biscotti, Bars & Squares; Cakes & Cupcakes; Pies, Tarts, Cobblers & Pastries; Custard, Puddings & Souffles; and Yeast Breads

Here’s what I especially love about Cooking Light Way to Bake:

Chapter 1 – “Way to bake” which provides loads of helpful information on ingredients, techniques and equipment.

Photos – This book is filled with gorgeous photos and lots of step-by-step photo demonstrations of various techniques from baking a batch of biscuits to whipping up a souffle.

Easy Great Tasting Recipes – The recipes in this book are doable even for beginners. The instructions are clear and the steps are straightforward. And more importantly, the results taste great.

Nutritional Information – Now that I’m back with Weight Watchers, this is important for me to be able to calculate the PointsPlus values of what I am baking and eating.

This is a great book for anyone who is interested in making healthier lower-fat baked goods that deliver delicious results.

    I would love to win this because, first of all, I too am a cookbook addict. I read them like novels. But I also need more healthy recipes. We try to eat a healthy diet, but sometimes I find myself running out of ideas.

  7. Jessi says

    I would love to own this book! I have recently been turning my familys’ day to day diet around to a healthy new. I have a daughter that has been battling unhealthy weight gain and chronic stomaches and a husband that has recently gain weight aswell. I have found by just adjusting our diets it has made a tremendous turn around for us all and I feel your book could help us continue on our positive path!

    I would love to add this cookbook to my healthy cooking tools. I am a foodie and am always trying to find great cookbooks and recipes to make for family and friends while still living a healthy and happy lifestyle!

  9. says

    I’ve gotten the bad attitude of really disliking my cookbooks that don’t include nutritional information. It’s so much more work if I have to do the math myself! This looks fab. I could really use some good biscotti recipes, too, as I’m planning my cousin’s bridal shower and would love to make some for her!

  10. Sherrie says

    I feel better already about my own obsession with healthy cookbooks — I think I will just embrace it as well. What a great idea to pass it along so others will benefit! Thanks!

  11. Jean says

    I would love to try the recipes in this book. Weight management is a constant battle with me and have been trying healthier foods.

  12. Donna C says

    I absolutely love to bake! But… all of those extra cupcakes are really going to my… well everywhere. This cookbook would be a great way to incorporate healthy eating into every aspect of my diet.
