Gina Homolka is America’s most trusted home cook when it comes to easy, flavorful recipes that are miraculously low-calorie and made from all-natural, easy-to-find ingredients. Her blog, Skinnytaste is the number one go-to site for slimmed down recipes that you’d swear are anything but. It only takes one look to see why people go crazy for Gina’s food: cheesy, creamy Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli with only 420 calories per serving, breakfast dishes like Make-Ahead Western Omelet "Muffins" that truly fill you up until lunchtime, and sweets such as Double Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies that are low in sugar and butter-free but still totally indulgent.
The Skinnytaste Cookbook features 150 amazing recipes: 125 all-new dishes and 25 must-have favorites. As a busy mother of two, Gina started Skinnytaste when she wanted to lose a few pounds herself. She turned to Weight Watchers for help and liked the program but struggled to find enough tempting recipes to help her stay on track. Instead, she started “skinny-fying” her favorite meals so that she could eat happily while losing weight.
With 100 stunning photographs and detailed nutritional information for every recipe, The Skinnytaste Cookbook is an incredible resource of fulfilling, joy-inducing meals that every home cook will love.
Gina Homolka is beloved for her incredible recipes that transform your favorite, comforting foods into healthy, low-cal dishes with tons of flavor. Now she brings her expertise to the game-changing air fryer appliance. Using high-powered, super-hot circulating air like a convection oven, air fryers crisp up your favorite "fried" foods with barely any oil needed. Cook times are shorter than traditional oven methods and the process requires little clean-up.
In The Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook, Gina shares 75 of her best recipes that work in every type of air fryer, including basket models and countertop ovens with air fryer settings. You'll of course find crave-worthy recipes for traditionally fried foods, such as Chicken-Vegetable Spring Rolls, Crispy Coconut Shrimp, Za’atar Chickpeas, and Pickle-Brined Chicken Tenders, but Gina also shows you how versatile the appliance can be. Perfectly roasted meats and vegetables like Korean Pork Lettuce Wraps, Roasted Fish with Lemon-Almond Crumbs, Sugar and Spice Acorn Squash, and Charred Sesame Green Beans, along with baked goods like Homemade Bagels and Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing, are all executed beautifully in the compact air fryer.
For those of us with a sweet tooth, The Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook even offers low-cal desserts, including Churros, Very Berry Mini Pie, and Baked Apples with Streusel Topping. Many dishes are vegetarian, gluten-free, and keto-friendly—all called out with helpful icons—and every recipe includes nutritional information (with the most up-to-date Weight Watchers points found on the blog).

Die Gourmets werden staunen über Ginas Geschmackskombinationen und sich fragen: Warum bin ich nicht darauf gekommen? Die Anfänger in der Küche sehen: Das Kochen geht wirklich einfach. Man muss nur wissen, wie. Gina weiß es und erklärt alles genau, weist auf Fehlerfallen hin, macht Mut zum Experiment und gibt Tipps zum Einkaufen, zu den Lebensmitteln, zur Zubereitung oder zur Variation der Gerichte. So enthält das Buch 150 Rezepte.
Die Rezepte sind gekennzeichnet, ob sie vegetarisch sind, sich für den Schongarer oder zum Einfrieren eignen oder sich schnell zubereiten lassen. Für die Gesundheitsbewussten sind die Nährwertangaben enthalten, von den Kalorien bis zum Natriumgehalt. Bei jedem Rezept hat Gina Homolka darüber nachgedacht, wie man die Kalorien vermindern kann, ohne den Geschmack zu beeinträchtigen. Sie hat den Geschmack sogar verbessert, verfeinert, vervielfacht.
Probieren Sie es selbst. Wie wäre es mit einer Butternusskürbis-Zimt-Suppe mit Muskatnuss und gerösteten Kokosflocken und als Vorspeise gebackenem Blumenkohl mit Kurkuma, Kreuzkümmel, Koriander und Knoblauch? Müssen Hackbällchen immer vom Schwein und schwedisch sein? Versuchen Sie die Hähnchen-Hackbällchen "Cordon Bleu". Oder vegetarisch: Schwarze-Bohnen-Burger mit Chipotle-Mayo. Sie und Ihre Familie werden begeistert sein!
"Gina Homolka ist eine entzückende Person, und ihr freundlicher Ton durchzieht das ganze Buch. Ihren Blog verfolge ich natürlich auch, aber das Buch hat noch gefehlt. Es ist umwerfend. Ausgefeilt genug, um Gäste zu beeindrucken und einfach genug für vielbeschäftigte Familien. Das Buch ist klar gegliedert, was im Layout gut zum Ausdruck kommt. "
