Cookbook Giveaway: Dish Do-Over

Enter to win a copy of Jo Lusted's new cookbook, Dish Do-Over.
By: Mallory Stuchin

Bacon, fried chicken, chocolate, cheeseburgers — all classics, all exceptional. But here's something that will surprise no one: They're also all exceptionally unhealthy.

Sure, it's a bummer. But there's a silver lining, and its name is Dish Do-Over. The brand-new cookbook from author Joanne Lusted, host of Cooking Channel's Compete to Eat, focuses on creating comfort food favorites that are completely guilt-free. Even better news: The book features over 125 creative recipes that promise to keep you on track from breakfast through dinner (there are even a few good-for-you desserts).

What's Lusted's secret to cleaning up rich dishes? Savvy ingredient swaps (think Greek yogurt instead of sour cream) and simple cooking techniques that are big on flavor but light on fat (like baking bacon instead of frying it). Basically, these are win-win recipes that are actually completely satisfying.

Try a couple recipes from Dish Do-Over today:

We're giving away three copies of Dish Do-Over (one cookbook to each of three winners). All you have to do to enter the contest is look through this gallery of our  top vegetarian Thanksgiving dishes and leave a comment telling us which recipe you eat when trying to keep things healthy.

So tell us, what's your go-to vegetarian dish?  You must include your email address in the “Email” field when submitting your comment so we can communicate back with you if you’re a winner. (But do not post your email address into the actual body of the comment.)
