This review is from: A Lighter Way to Bake (Hardcover)
Sure, there are several usable recipes but to claim that they are a lighter way to bake is as honest as the average supermarket price drop claim.Lorraine is a lovely person and I do like her but Don't want a book about food to be strewn with numerous puics of the writer. Either this is a book about food or her former model status is being used as a sales gimmick. The art work is the other major stumbling block for this book. Some of the cake pictures are so amateurish that they make me wonder whether the recipe is worth doing - e.g. the madeleines pic. There are certainly too many pics and not enough recipes.The biggest problem is actually being able to read it because of the gimmicky red font - a coloured overlay can make this a little bit better, but not much. When will art editors take on board that many fonts actually interfere with the legibility of a recipe because of the font itself or the colour. Even though I got this very cheap at a suopermarket I feel distinctly robbed. The book contains slightly gussied versions of fairly undemanding recipes falsely claiming to be lighter. The adjective "light" on supermarket foods is generally misleading - the same principle applies here. Very disappointing.
