Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to cookbook for the last 2 years I got this cook book right when it came out. ALL of the recipes I’ve tried have turned out and are all easy. This is the first book where I’ve actually have made more than 10 dishes!!! I like that she has multiple recipes for certain ingredients like canned pumpkin so you don’t have to waste the big can that you bought for one recipe! For example she has a delicious loaf recipe with pumpkin and a chilli recipe that uses pumpkin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most-used cookbook! This cookbook will be used if you are interested in feeding the people you cook for a variety of good foods that are good for you -- without feeling like you're being deprived. Great to push picky eaters just a bit outside of their comfort zones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every recipe is a winner so far. I just got this book last week and have made three recipes from it already. ALL winners. The coconut banana pancakes are easy and amazing (gluten and dairy free!), the thai red curry super nummy, and the turkey burgers were delish. Can't wait to try more recipes from this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from True to the title! I do miss the food facts and nutrition trivia in the previous books by this chef however this one was very nice in the sense that it was easy to find vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan etc. recipes or modifications. The photos were mouthwatering and everything that I have tried I liked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Cookbook This is the BEST cookbook. I am cooking my way through it and everything has been easy to make, delicious and nutritious. I try to make something new from it each week, but there are several favorites that I keep going back to. I liked the Looneyspoons books, but this is even better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great book If you are familiar with the Looneyspoons cookbook at all, you'll be happy to pick up this new one by Greta Podleski; however I don't find myself reaching for it as often as I thought I would, given how well used my Looneyspoons book is. The recipes are tasty and reliable, but I wouldn't say it offers a fresh take on anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief for a cooking slump I just love this cook book, and will be buying it for friends! The recipes are easy and delicious. The book is jam packed with great tips and variations (hence the "yummer" in the title), and there is a photo and video access for every recipe! I have tried several recipes so far, and have not yet been disappointed. Once you buy her favourite staple items for your pantry (such as hoisin sauce, garam masala, etc.), most of her recipes use basic ingredients. I aim to try every one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exciting and Fun! I bought this book a few weeks ago. I have not made anything yet because I am still looking at all the fabulous pictures and recipes. I am eager to watch the videos. My household is so busy I barely have time to sit. I am excited to get going on quite a few of recipes. Love Greta. I always have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Cookbook This cookbook is filled with tasty recipes that are easy to make. The ingredients are not too exotic and are available in any supermarket. The recipes can be prepared in two ways. The Yum recipes is the core recipe and to make it yummer, you just need to add another ingredient to create a yummer version of the original yum recipe. I highly recommend this cookbook, if you want recipes that even fussy eaters will like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Easy Recipes My mom gave me The Looney Spoons cookbook when I moved out of the house and I used a lot of the recipes but found they became outdated over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great family cookbook! I got this for Christmas, and I've been working my way through it. The recipes are great, and many can be made ahead. The only reason I'm docking a star is that some of the recipes have many ingredients, so you can't whip these up when you're in a rush. Planning is definitely needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS So much variety yet so simple. I love that this book provides you with many types of different "stock" recipes ex: hummus, salad dressings, broths that can be used for a variety of the recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cookbook I Own! I received this book for Christmas and have cooked at least 15 recipes, all tasted amazing and got a "please make again" from my family and they are picky eaters! The Maple-Curry chicken is our fave, as well as the Fish Tacos and Asian Salmon fillets, plus I've made at least 5 of the vegetarian meals and the vegan Chana Masala. This books inspires me and makes me want to cook. The photos are so beautiful and colourful. I've been telling everyone about it. Please write another one Greta.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This book did not meet my expectations I tried a few recipes in this book and was disappointed. I love to cook. My father was a chef and therefore I experienced some very tasty meals. I never shy away from a recipe that calls for any form of preparation. Having said that, I expect the meal to taste amazing once it is served. I made the ASIAN SALMON recipe: both my husband and I, did not think that the end result was yummy. I have made a variety of very tasty salmon dishes over the years but the Asian Salmon recipe in this book is one that I will not make again. I am going to shelve this book and go back to my other recipes that make me more satisfied. Not my favourite recipe book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite cookbook yet! Love this cookbook! Each recipe in the book has a picture as well as a video link which is really helpful for indecisive cooks not sure which recipe to try first. Hard to believe that ever single recipe in this book is delicious! Planning on trying them all. Totally recommend this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cookbook Ever! Hands down one of the best cookbooks I have used. The pictures are gorgeous and the recipes are simple but delicious! I love that each is clearly labelled indicates whether it is gluten free, dairy free, or vegan, and even when they are not there are lots of tips and suggestions on how to make it so. For someone not very good at cooking, this book makes me feel like a chef! I would highly recommend. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Podleski winner Modern take on healthy eating. Love the use of lots and lots of fruits and vegetables. The photos are fantastic and will inspire me to create something similar, even if I have to substitute some of the ingredients (e.g. I have no strawberries, but I have kiwis to substitute). Have made the following so far: Broccoli Cheddar Quinoa Bites, Beef Bowlrito, Saucy Skillet Pork Loin Chops, Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, Carrot Cake Pancakes...all were very good to excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Cookbook We're fans of the Podleski sisters previous cookbooks, and Greta's first solo cookbook is no exception. Lots of great healthy recipes and a few splurge worthy ones, and a quick how-to video QR code so you can watch each one being prepared on your phone or online! Love that there are recipes for smaller families this time as well. Great variety of soups/stews,salads, fish,meatless meals or full of meat meals,pastas and desserts, just get the book lol! And the 'Yum and Yummer' part is little tips on each page to suggest ways to enhance the meal or how to use the leftovers. Easy to use and even better eating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new EVERYDAY cookbook and go-to gift! I was lucky to be a taste-tester as Greta developed recipes for Yum and Yummer. Every dish lived up to what I've come to expect from her: freaking delicious, simple to make, and left me feeling great afterwards! I also had a chance to peek at the completed book and was completely blown away by the variety in recipes and gorgeous food photography. Plus, every single recipe includes an amazing little video demo...I could spend an entire day drooling over them! This cookbook truly is in a league of its own.
