Rosie Daley’s gem of a cookbook !
Here are fifty favorite recipes that Rosie cooked for Oprah. The dishes are light and low in fat and, at the same time, enormously satisfying and tasty. Homemade pizzas, "Un-Fried Favorites" (catfish, French fries, chicken), paella, sweet potato pie—these are marvelous, healthy recipes, as Oprah testifies in her introduction and in her foreword to each chapter. Daley also offers helpful hints about seasonings, substitutions, and pretty presentations, which all help to make her food so temptingly delicious.

These are new, but "scratch and dent or a little dusty" copies so I can sell them at about half price at $7.00 each.

From Publishers Weekly
This is a celebrity cookbook with a heart-healthy edge. Brief anecdotes by Oprah and recipe prefaces by Daley, her cook, may lure Oprah watchers--not only have they seen her weight loss, now they can taste the foods that presumably helped to make it possible. Others will find her style obvious: "I have thrived on pasta," Oprah confides. "I can eat it every day." Exclamation points abound: "Forget iceberg!" she exhorts in the introduction to salad recipes."Experiment! . . . Delicious!" Fortunately, Daley is a professional chef, trained at the Cal-A-Vie Spa, and her recipes are no mere fluff. Practical advice on preparations that add flavor while reducing fat reflect her spa experience, while suggestions for garnishes add visual interest. The numerous tips stretch the length of the book, too: just 50 recipes are featured in 134 pages. Typical of Daley's approach is the following paean to paella: "In this beautiful dish jet-black mussels, pale gray clams, and vibrant red lobster tails lie on a bed of golden saffron rice, surrounded by chopped tomato and green peas, its flavor enhanced by the addition of squid rings and an assortment of peppers."

From Library Journal
A cookbook from Oprah Winfrey's personal chef would no doubt be popular no matter what (proved here by the 200,000-copy first printing), but Daley in fact offers a number of zesty and creative recipes. Her professional background includes experience as a spa chef, and most of her dishes are sophisticated and elegant presentations-although there are also recipes for Un-Fried French Fries and Un-Fried Chicken. Many are highly spiced as well, substituting assertive flavor for fat. You'll probably need multiple copies.
