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.

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.
