About the book-

The first Skinnytaste cookbook is one that I utilize often in my kitchen, so I was excited to see that there was a new one that utilized different cooking methods. The book is full of beautiful pictures and filled to the brim with all kinds of tasty recipes sure to please your palette and save you time. The best thing about slow cooking and also about quick to throw together recipes is that it saves you time to devote to other things in your day and you still get delicious food to eat out of the deal! I love that the book includes several different types of diet friendly recipes, particularly I am glad to see gluten free recipes since those are the kind of recipes I am looking for. Skinnytaste Fast and Slow is a cookbook for anyone who wants to eat well, but doesn't want to spend hours in the kitchen.
