Product Features

Slim and Scrumptious follows the ideas that healthy food can be made at home and made at a reasonable price. Joy Bauer, nutritionist for The TODAY Show, has created a series of recipes that the average person can follow and afford. These include chocolate pancakes with strawberry sauce for breakfast, Beef Tenderloin with Fig Reduction for dinner, or cinnamon cheesecake fondue for dessert. At the time of this review, Slim and Scrumptious is available on Amazon. The regular list price is $24.99, but as I write this the book is available for $16.49 and qualifies for the super saver free shipping.
