I love cooking and baking and have quite a substantial collection of cookery books. I really like Jennifer's new cookbook because all of the recipes are tasty, easily explained,healthy and best of all quick to make. Usually with a cookbook, I may only make five recipes from this book. I've only had this book for two days and already I've made four recipes and I'm making two more tomorrow. So far I've made the vegetable and spring onion pancakes ( so tasty and super quick to make). I made the stuffed chicken breast with spinach, cinnamon and dates for the girls last night and today I had the light chicken Vietnamese salad. For dinner since it's a Saturday and I'm having a lazy day, I'm making the Jamaican Chicken Curry.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys tasty healthy food that is quick to prepare.

I have Jennifer Joyce's 'Meals in Heels' - aimed at dinner party food that could be made ahead and finished at the last minute. This book is aimed at more everyday meals. The 'skinny' shouldn't be seen as a diet book - really more healthy eating - the food is less rich but still flavoursome. There aren't any calorie counts or details about carbs, proteins, etc. which a mainstream diet book would include. Most of the recipes can be made in 30-60 minutes. There are notes indicating the extent to which recipes can be made ahead, either wholly or partially which is always useful. Recipes are generally intended for four people.

The book is divided into chapters as follows: Snacks & Nibbles; Starters; Salads; Soups; Weekday Dinners in under 1 hour; Weekend Cooking; Puds.

Snacks include oven-dried cherry tomatoes with lemon-oregano salt, pickled vegetables and Turkish salsa with pitta crisps. Starters range from sashimi tuna, to steamed asparagus with an egg vinaigrette, beef & mango spring rolls, vegetable & spring onion pancakes with a chilli dipping sauce, vegetable yakitori, steamed globe artichokes with lemon & oregano dipping oil & spicy scallops with avocado & mango salsa to name a few. The salads are more in the line of main course salads such as palm heart with orange, prawns & avocado; Vietnamese chicken salad; potato & smoked trout. There are some really lovely soups of which my favourites are celeriac & roasted garlic; chipotle black bean with lime-pickled onion; tomato & chickpea with cumin; & caramelised onion & fennel.

There is a good range of main courses including a lovely vegetarian selection (although I doubt that the recipe involving squid ink pasta will go down well with true vegetarians).

This cookbook is a must-have for anyone who loves food and entertaining. Jennifer's user-friendly writing style means that this book is pleasure to cook from. She explains why the recipes are healthy, and includes lots of tips about preparing ahead of time.

So far I've been introduced to some amazing ingredients and am working my way through the rest of recipes. My family and friends have been delighted with all the food so far. I'd definitely recommend this book!

Anyone familiar with Jennifer's writing will know that it is all about flavour. Skinny Meals in Heels cleverly packs a tasty punch with simple and satisfying everyday recipes that you wouldn't think we're 'skinny'!

Through Jennifer's understanding of winning flavour combinations and ingredients from all around the world (fresh aromatic herbs, pungent spice pastes and zingy dressings) it is easy to eat low fat food and find healthier ways to cook it. A ready supply of tuperware is a must however - even my boyfriend has loved making the salads and soups for packed lunches. Try the filling Chipotle black bean soup with lime-pickled onion and crisp baked tortillas or Potato, smoked trout and dill salad with a caper and whole grain mustard dressing.

As well as soups and salads there are also sections to take you right through the week for snacks, starters, weekday dinners in under an hour, weekend cooking (for when you have more time and want to impress) and skinny puddings. Stuffed chicken breasts with spinach, cinnamon and dates has become a firm favourite as have Sizzling Korean-style beef with sesame seeds and Vietnamese stir-fried fish with dill and rice noodles, to name but a few. All the recipes have great little tips explaining what can be prepped ahead, as well as the all important skinny 'sell' to help you understand the healthy thinking behind the recipe. Also useful is the definitive guide to stir-frying which, once mastered, is the prefect healthy fast-food option.

This is the kind of easy, delicious and healthy food we should all be eating on a daily basis...like Jennifer says, diet is a dirty word!

Tried 2 recipes so far and both uncomplicated and tasty. Very pleased with book but hadn't realised that Americans have so many different names for things! Had to Google terms like cilantro (= coriander) and not sure if some ingredients are available in the UK - hard to know equivalents.

As a serial dieter this book is great as it gives wonderful easy to prepare tasty low fat meals. The cover of the book looks really inviting and I love the title. Would make a fab present for any woman I am sure I will be buying more.
