meals that are healthy and not totally devoid of taste!!
I have 2 young ones and a 'meat and potatoes' husband and myself,
trying to lose my last 20 lbs. I need meals with a good balance of
lean proteins, complex carbs and veggies as opposed to my old standby
recipes and meals. we don't eat too badly as it is, but I think I'm just
also in a rut!

The biggest thing I am always looking for is meals that are quick to make. From start to table I would want things that are no more than 30 minutes. I have young kids and a long commute so in order to get the kids to bed at a reasonable time and get to spend any quality time with them I need to get good healthy meals on the table in a minimum of time.

Healthy meals, maybe learning how to cook with different types of whole grains and greens. Flavorful, quick healthy meals would catch my interest.

Meals based on less meat and much more green vegetables, whole grains
of all varieties, beans and lentils.
Perhaps for the time pressed - meals of these ingredients in
one pot.

I'd like to see more casseroles and other one dish meals. I used to be able to stand at the stove and cook all kinds of wonderful meals, but time and age change all things.

I would like to see included how the use of vinegars, or other condiments can be added to simple recipes to enhance their flavors.

I'm a bit in between, I love tasty, healthy low cal meals, but I also love being spoilt on occassions, like when we eat out. I adore Italian food, especially Tuscan soups.

I am always on the look-out for recipes that take ever'day ingredients and use them in creative ways.

The perfect recipe would be low calorie, low cost, quick to fix, kid friendly and really tasty. When he finds that one, I will buy the book. :)
