“The New American Heart Association Cookbook” needs to be your go to cookbook. It has over 800 recipes in all areas; including vegetarian entrees and slow cooker chapters. If you want to be healthy and cook healthy, this cookbook will provide you with all the recipes you need. It is not only for someone that wants to improve heart health but, these recipes will help reduce blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and weight.

In this updated 2017 version you will find delicious recipes that reflect current trends in food preparation from ingredients, to herbs to cooking techniques. At the front of each chapter, there is a list of recipes and corresponding page numbers, to make your selections easy to find. There are 12 sections of recipes with categories from appetizers to desserts.

The vegetarian section is comprehensive for an all-around cookbook. The recipes use many different grains, tofu, tempeh, and beans. I made the Portobello with polenta and tomatoes is was delicious and the recipe was easy to follow.

The fish section has recipes for a large variety of fish and has many different sauces that can be used on any fish. I made the broiled salmon with mint citrus relish for a dinner party, and it was a hit. Simple to make, yet impressive for a dinner party. It was healthy and had a beautiful presentation.

If you want to invest in one new cookbook this year, I highly recommend “The New American Heart Association Cookbook.” It will have all the recipes you need for any occasion.

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in order to write this review.
