Staff Pick - Skinny Suppers

Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

Skinny Suppers by Brooke Griffin

A great cookbook for healthier meals is Skinny Suppers by Brooke Griffin, the creator of skinnymom.com. I like this book because it is attractive with its inviting colored paper and colored fonts. I also like the colored pictures of the recipes that make everything look so good you can’t wait to try a recipe. Foods like Coconut Fish Sticks, Grilled Chicken and Fruit Salad Wraps, Vegetarian Chipotle Black Bean Burgers, Cilantro Lime Rice, Santa Fe Quinoa Sizzling Skillet, Sour Cream Enchiladas, Parmesan Chicken Nuggets, Un-Sloppy Janes, Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna Rolls are all made just a little better for you with a few healthier substitutions.

She also has little inspirational quotes and sayings peppered throughout the book which I find really sweet such as “when you are about to give up remember why you started in the first place”. Anyone who likes simple recipes that are also appealing to the eye will like this cookbook (and it never hurts to be a bit healthier).

If Skinny Suppers interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
