‘(a cookbook that will) tempt even the most novice cook’. The Irish Examiner

Sally is a spokeswoman for the British Heart Foundation, is a trained therapist giving regular talks to heart rehabilitation groups, and an NHS 'Expert Patient'.

I love these recipes from Sally Bee. They make all my guilty pleasures ok to eat by making small changes! We all know the principles of healthy eating, but somehow I'm often at a loss when trying to put this knowledge to use to make my comfort food healthy. My two favourite recipes so far are the lasagne and the chicken casserole, which was divine.

Sally's suggestions are so obvious and great, making this a cookbook for everyday cooking with recipes all kids will eat. It might just save your life, but it's not full of ingredients you can't get hold of, it won't take you all day to cook and kids and people who have no weight to lose won't turn their noises up.

Sally's story is astonishing and really goes to show how important your heart is and how important it is to look after it properly.

Oh; and it has such a pretty cover:)

I have various cook books but this one knocks spots off the others. The reason being is that the recipes are so easy to follow and everything can be created without having to search for any special ingredients.
Sally Bee has provided me with good wholesome recipes that my whole family can enjoy. A true inspiration. We'll done Sally Bee!

I'm a sucker for a good cookbook. But it was news of Sally's experience which made me put this on my preorder list. I think I'd read about her condition and amazing turnaround a few months ago, and it was only by chance that I heard a radio piece about it a few days ago. Fantastic to see what good living and a good attitude can do to someone who was given hours to live.

As for the recipes, I'm really pleased with how things have turned out for me so far. They're simple and straightforward and certainly healthy. After our Christmas, it won't do any of the family any harm to work a few of these into the evening rotation. Not a bad start to the new year, as far as the scales are concerned.

Sally Bee's story is very inspirational and I love the look of this book. I just found this book is more suitable for a beginner or someone who hasn't cooked for a family before. The recipes are straightforward, I just expected a bit more info on why it is important to eat ths and not that and maybe some swap outs for ingredients, so you can make the dish a bit differently next time. I do like this book, however the recipes aren't really anything new. She does give some tips and hints but I thought there would be more. Great photos in the book and worth a flick through for some dinner ideas but it's not a must have cookbook.

I waited a long time to get hold of this book, as after reading about it in a national newspaper, I could not get hold of the original and had to wait for the 2nd edition being released in January 2010, but it was well worth the wait... an excellent cookery book which is as it says, with - 'Easy and delicious recipes'. I have already sampled a lot of the recipes and the key thing to this book from the author's own health experiences, is that she has made the recipes 'HEALTHY'! Highly recommended and cheapest buy with Amazon!

I needed a cookbook suitable for a low fat diet. This is fits the bill perfectly, a good variety of dishes suitable for all occasions. Easy to follow, uses everyday ingredients, short preparation time. Some dishes benefit from a little extra spicing. Has changed my eating habits. The resulting weight loss is an unexpected bonus.

This is a book that you will want to pick up and it is very well set out with colourful photographs throughout and also contains Sally's marvellous story of recovery. The recipes are great and are helpfully marked as being suitable for everday or an occasional treat. Excellent advice for leading a healthy life whilst not missing out on good and tasty food - it could be a 'life-saver' in more ways than one.

I purchased this book after reading about what happened to Sally & the way in which she took control of everything she ate in order to have the best chance of survival.
Up to now, in the short time I have had the cookery book, I have tried 14 of the Recipes, some of which include carrot & butternut squash soup, snappy tuna melt, fish in a bag, hearty shepherd's pie, quick Cajun chicken salad. Each recipe was easy to follow & so full of flavour. I have a friend who came for tea & I made the red berry meringue pie in four ramekin dishes, the result looked & tasted stunning & so easy to make. I have also bought this book for my Mum.
After years of buying so many books & magazines & joining various slimming clubs based on healthy eating & diet, I truly believe I have found the best cookery book I have ever owned, filled with delicious meals to eat & full of information that you can understand. Well done Sally.
