I love ultra focused “niche” cookbooks because in general, the author has more room available to look at a subject with many many angles and suggestions. Skinny Dips by Diane Morgan is a cookbook about dips and spreads: everything you’ve got to dip in or to spread on a toasted bread slice is packed into this lovely guilty-free recipe book. The recipes are whipped up with low-fat and low-calories ingredients for a healthy yet festive alternative to heavy dips.
I’m sure this cookbook will get a lot of use in your kitchen
Nutrition details, party planning tips and advance prep time-savers are also included so you’ll be able to integrate these recipes into your usual dinner planning routines. The cookbook covers vegetable and herb dips; salsas, guacamoles, and tapenades; cheese and tofu dips, bean and legume dips, meat and seafood dips, and crudites and many others.
What we like:
- The many and beautiful photos
- The nutrition details
- The fact that dips are made with low fat ingredients, but the regular full-fat versions can be substituted with great results as well.
- You can find all ingredients easily in all grocery or department stores
