The Hamlyn All-Colour series, of which this is one, is a good set. If you already have one or more of the others you will know the format.

Each recipe is shown on one page with a full-page photograph opposite. The recipe is headed by the title, details about calories per serving, the number it will serve, preparation time and cooking time. Beneath these are the list of ingredients, and alongside the instructions for completing the recipe, broken down into digestible sections.

Having a photograph for every recipe is excellent - it tells you what you should be aiming towards, and gives you an at-glance impression of whether it's the sort of thing you will like.

All of the recipes are calorie-counted, as you would expect, showing a calorie count for each serving rather than the dish as a whole (which just means that you have to be very careful about dividing portions into exact servings). Servings are usually for for two, four or six people. Muffins, cakes etc may produce 12-24 pieces.

Generally this is a good book, with a good mix of food types and flavours. Its downside, for my purposes, is that it does not consistently include or exclude accompanying dishes - rice, salad, vegetables etc. That means that some of the recipes are calorie counted for a full meal, whereas others are just counted for the dish and not the accompaniments shown in the photo (like rice, chips, and burgers shown with buns but without the buns included in the calorie count). Some of the suggested side dishes (like the spicy apple relish to accompany one dish) have recipes but no calorie count, which seems daft.

I bought this book as I was looking for more creative ideas for my meals. There were some good recipes in this book, and some I have used, but I wouldn't say it is a book I use ALL the time. Compared to other such books on the market it is good but not great. I regularly count the calories I eat and I found that although the calories were close to what they said in the book often the recipes were served with rice and this was not counted with the calories per serving - made the recipe much less appetising and slightly deceiving.

I have started collecting these hamlyn books, they are compact in size, but have tonnes of recipes AND a photo to accompany each and every one of those recipes which not all cook books have.
This one inparticular is quite varied. My partner and i are trying to be healthy, but healthy doesn't have to mean boring. We have only tried three recipes up to now (lentil and pea soup was the main dish but we tried the alternative; ham and pulse. Basicly lentil and pea with added gammon. Delicious and very filling.
The next one we tried was chicken burgers & tomato salsa. We couldn't find chicken mince in our local supermarket and opted for turkey instead, and we bought the salsa rather than making it but it does seem very easy to make. This was a major success and had these twice since then. An alternative for this one was lamb burgers with mint and yoghurt sauce.
Next, chorizo and red pepper stew. Also very filling and really easy.
There are desserts in this aswell which we are yet to try. Overall a really good book and my favourite book of the series (up to now!!)

If you are on a calorie controlled diet of 1200 to 1400 kcals and you used the breakfast, lunch, main meal and desert recipes you would be way over your daily allowance. Many of the ingredients are strange and very difficult to obtain why use brown rice flour instead of wheat flour and why would you want to use Xanthan Gum for goodness sake! Wikipedia states "Xanthan Gum is a highly efficient Laxative it is also used as a stabilizer in cosmetics, Xanthan Gum is grown from a bacterium and chemically engineered using industrial solvents and an ingredient you find in poor quality over processed convenience food so why use this disgusting ingredient in so called healthy recipes. The introduction suggests that you cut your fat and sugar intake then contradicts by offering you a Lemon Drizzle Loaf page 220 with 8oz of SUGAR and 8oz of BUTTER 1 slice is 334 cals far from healthy! Why are most of the recipes for four people most households only have one dieter what are you supposed to do try to alter the recipe and possibly alter the calorie count or spend four days eating the same dish. This book has to be one of the most impractical, awful and ill thought out cookbooks I have ever had the misfortune to read. What a crock!
