Review: Jane Brody's Good Food Book: Living the High-Carbohydrate Way

User Review  - Mary Ker - Goodreads

I have never tried a recipe from this book that I did not absolutely love. Brody finds a way to trim fat and unnecessary calories from recipes and they still are luxuriously delicious. Her take on cholesterol is now dated, but the recipes are still healthy and totally yummy. Read full review
