"I have been thinking about how I need to eat healthier. And after reading through Chef Ryan Callahan's cookbook, I just had a very satisfying and tasteful dinner of vegetables! Even though the cookbook is called, "Cooking for Chemo," he teaches you how to use spices, sounds, and smells; things I never thought would contribute to making me satisfied after such a healthy dinner. Thanks Ryan! Love Love the cookbook!"

"All in all, it's a good cookbook. I really appreciated all the information in the book. It was a lot more than just recipes. He shared some really great cooking techniques. I waited to write the review until I had a chance to try a few of the recipes and they were all really good. I especially enjoyed the smoothies."
