I bought TLC and it is a brilliant and life-changing book. It’s as informative as it is inspiring.   Jon P.

I LOVE this cookbook!!!! I will add it to my top cookbook recommendations for our weight loss group. This is a must have cookbook!!!  Christina G.

This is not just another cookbook. This will quickly become your kitchen bible! Elizabeth B.

I am so in love with this book and the awesome recipes. You gals rock! Signed, a proud Canadian.  Sandy B.

Since January I have changed my family’s diet so that we are eating only healthy foods. My husband has Type 2 diabetes, I need to lose weight and I want my kids to have the best nutrition possible. Since starting, your cookbook has been a godsend and I have made close to 40 items out of it already and still going. Happy to say that I have lost 20lbs in just 8 weeks, my husbands diabetes is under control and my kids DEVOUR the food…they love your recipes too!  Susan L.

I am a Weight Watcher and have lost 16 pounds with the help of your recipes. Joanne R.

I have never in my life (and I LOVE to cook!) been so grateful for such a well-rounded cookbook. So far every recipe tried is no fail! Amazing!  Hannah G.

Made 52 recipes from your new cookbook since I got it for Christmas…all awesome!!! The whole family is happy. Thanks so much!  Helen D.

Fantastic! Your taste buds will thank you! This has to be the best cookbook ever written—nothing more needs to be said.  Bryan S.

Holy, moly cow! LOVE, freakin’ LOVE ur book!!  Yvette B.

I have all of your previous books but this one is SO AMAZING! Have cooked out of it every day since I got it for Christmas. My husband is in healthy-food heaven at every meal.  Susan M.

I know it’s probably not the manliest thing to say, but the Looneyspoons cookbook rules!  Harrison M.

This book makes me smile more than cheese.  Paige K.

In the last 15 days I’ve made 16 recipes from your book. They’ve all been GREAT…I can’t even pick a favourite!  Cherrill V.

Absolutely love The Collection! Everyone I know is getting this for their birthday this year. Such an entertaining read!  Bini R.

Okay, I’ve never felt compelled to email the authors and thank them before, but THANK YOU!  Thank you for an amazing, inspiring, incredible cookbook.  Every time I read through the cookbook, I read an inspiring tip that I feel is life changing.  I am a cookbook addict and have over 30 cookbooks and this one is hands down the BEST cookbook I have.  I’ve made over 10 recipes so far and every single one has been totally delicious, easy to make and incredibly accurate on the serving portions (that never happens!). I can’t say enough good things about this cookbook and I thank you for changing our lives.   Michelle O. (No, not Michelle Obama…we wish!)

I loved Eat Shrink & Be Merry but this one, well, let’s say since Saturday I have not put it down. I want to thank-you for the inspiration to get cooking and out of the fast food restaurants.  This will help me with my weight loss efforts, I know.  Terri O.

My husband and I are loving your new collection!  We are working our way through as many recipes as we can and are thrilled with the results!  What we appreciate is the flavour that is packed into each and every recipe, and we don’t need to go on a treasure hunt to find ingredients! The photos are fabulous, and the book is full of helpful and valuable nutritional information!  Cooking our way through the book is like being on a culinary journey!  What a ride!  Jayne G.

More great recipes to make me less fat! Nothing else compares to the books by these ladies.  David B.

Every recipe I have tried has become a keeper at our house. Thanks for this great cookbook!  Jay H.

I love all of the tidbits, tips, jokes, titles, etc. of your cookbook.  It is my new cooking bible and bed-time reading book.  TLC has become my go-to gift for almost everyone I know!  I give it away with a list of my favourite recipes to help friends and family get started.  Kelly O.

I just had to write you to say that I picked up your new Looneyspoons Collection cookbook yesterday and have read it cover to cover.  I love your updated and new recipes and can’t wait to try them.   I made your chicken recipe, “The thigh who loved me” last night and got rave reviews from my kids and husband.  There is so much selection of recipes and helpful cooking and nutrition tips that I don’t think I’ll have to pull out any of my other cookbooks for a long time.  Camille L.

My husband and I were looking through your cookbook and we were laughing like crazy.  My husband who really doesn’t cook, found your cookbook to not only be funny, but to be filled with amazing tips and health suggestions.  My husband couldn’t put the book down.  We have told so many people about your book because we LOVE IT.  Deborah K.

I picked up your cookbook a few months ago and we are having so much fun trying new recipes. (I should add that I have numerous cookbooks on my shelf and I don’t bother to open them).  My 13 year old loves to cook and she will often look through your cookbook to find something that interests her. That’s amazing as right out of the gate she is learning to eat healthy and try new foods.  Jan W.

I don’t normally send feedback on cookbooks or recipes that I try but I have to tell you that you have outdone yourselves with the Looneyspoons Collection — what a beautiful book to own, read and cook from–its incredible!  If I could only own one cookbook, it would be this one.   This week I made the “Thai Beau” …this recipe rivals the Thai curry dishes from most Thai restaurants.  I have my colleagues at work hooked on the “Loin King”–I have been making this with pork tenderloin for years (first saw it in one of your earlier books).  Your granola recipe is my new favourite and the whole wheat/flax meal pizza dough was the easiest pizza dough I have ever worked with.  Caterina F.

I have been wanting to write to you to thank you for all the work you did to create such a great cookbook with loads of ideas and funny anecdotes. My children, two boys (17 & 16) and daughter (13) have learned to cook some great meals, taking risks and developing a taste for new foods. I also wanted to say that none, not one, recipe has failed to deliver taste or a thumbs up from even my pickiest eater.  Great Job Ladies!!!  Shelagh R.

I wanted to write and let you know how awesome I think the cookbook “The Looneyspoons Collection” is. I’ve been a single father raising two boys on my own for several years and for the most part, if the package didn’t come with instructions, it didn’t get cooked. Since I bought a copy of your cookbook, and I was not the cookbook type, I haven’t stopped reading or cooking. Thanks for creating such a great book. I am now a big Looneyspoons fan.   Mike H.

So many of your recipes are my favourites and by using them I have managed to take off eighty pounds since January…and the most important thing is that my attitude towards food has totally changed. We haven’t had take-out since January and cooking/baking has become such an enjoyable part of my day. I love the fact that your recipes use lots of ingredients and always turn out great . . .just as expected. I can’t say that I use LooneySpoons recipes every night but do use them for the majority of my meals. I just had to write to you both and let you know what a difference you have made in my life. I have more energy, I’m not ashamed to be seen in public because of my weight, and I feel that I am feeding my family well for the first time in years. I still have some weight to lose but I know that it will come off. Sorry for such a long message but know that you have done a great thing in writing your recipe book(s)! A big heartfelt thank-you!   Chris M.

I collect cookbooks because I love to cook and love the pictures.  But I only use them for ideas.  For cooking I never follow recipes. (Not going to lie….I’m a pretty good cook) ……except from your books.  Seriously, I NEVER measure anything, but with yours I follow the steps exactly.  I just want to say that I have never made one recipe from your books that didn’t work out/people didn’t love. Sometimes I just sit and read the Loonyspoons Collection and laugh out loud to myself.  My boyfriend looks at me like I’m a moron and says “what are you reading, a cookbook?”  And I’m like “yeah, shut up.”  Juliana A.

A dear friend of mine has just been diagnosed with bile duct cancer and has to follow a very strict diet, the dietician recommended your Looneyspoons book! This is now the only cookbook they use, they are so happy to have easy, tasty HEALTHY recipes. Thanks so much for all your hard work, it really has made a difference in people’s lives.  Amanda W.

This summer I was fortunate enough to use your cookbook while working for an amazing company called Active Challenge.  It is a not for profit organization where young women develop healthy habits, lose weight, and build confidence. During the six weeks the girls and the staff followed the Canadian food guide and also followed your book Looneyspoons Collection Recipe Book for all meals. The girls were so excited to pick out some meals from the book and learn how to prepare healthy meals for when they return home. The little tidbits of healthy eating on the pages also encouraged their learning and we also made a game using the information.  The 26 girls and 5 staff lost a total of 426 lbs simply by using your cookbook and adding activity to their lifestyle.  Joanne S.

Love your show girls and I purchased your book. Wow, changed our eating habits on your advice and have made most of your recipes. My girlfriend and I started going to the gym in Feb of this year and holy cow we have lost over 110 lbs together since then and feel great.  Rick Y., Anya G.

A friend recommended your looneyspoons collection book and so far I have attempted 3 recipes: A Wok in the Pork, Happily Ever Apple Pork Chops and It’s Only Brocc ‘n’ Bowl. I followed each recipe EXACTLY and each one turned out AMAZING!!!!! Your book is easy to follow, informative, funny and the recipes are “emotionally satisfying” (like a colourful handmade mug with a large handle)  Kayli K.

I love to cook but do need to follow recipes so my daughter bought me your greatest hits cookbook for Christmas past.  I LOVE IT!  I’m trying a Julie/Julia theme and making my way thru the whole cookbook.  So far I have made around 18 recipes.  I loved your cookbook so much I went out and bought my daughter, her friend, my best friend and a coworker your cookbook.  And just as I thought, they are all big fans of the book.  It was my father-in-laws birthday last weekend and I made the Italian Dream Cake.  Let’s say there were no leftovers and guests asked when they could be back for more.  The Maple Roast lived up to being a fan favorite.  A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with Heart Disease and it’s very important for me to follow low salt/saturated fat recipes and your cookbook does just that for me without eliminating the flavour.  I have to tell you that every recipe I have tried in your cookbook was delicious!   Sandy S.
