Sweet and Savory: 25 Late-Night Healthy Snacks Recipes Under 150 Calories by Tina B.Baker
Introduction about the book and snacks made for one person.
Each recipe has a summary of the dish, color photo and servings.
Has nutritional information: calories, carbs, fiber, fat NOT broken up into good and bad,
sodium and protein. List of healthy ingredients,  and how to make the item.
Pumpkin spice mug muffins sound great, I'd substitute the sugar with honey and low fat yogurt for their Greek yogurt.
Kale chips sound great also.

Brownies The Favorites Collection by Cheryl Leonard
Introduction about brownies and how they can be made and how much of a variety is available.
Starts out with a bunch of sauces that you can make for toppings or fillings.
Recipes for the brownies themselves are next. The recipes contain a title, list of ingredients and how to make and bake them along with servings.
There are NO pictures. There is NO nutritional information and you might be able to substitute some of the ingredients for a healthier option.
Chocolate Morsel Delicacies would be one of the most healthiest if you use liquid eggs.

51 recipes for apple crisp by Pamela Kazmierczak
Each recipe includes a summary of the dish, ingredients, how to make and usually a tip on how to serve.
There are NO pictures, There is NO nutritional information but you should be able to substitute for healthier options.
I like the basic first recipe as I can control the amount of butter and sugars.

Homemade Southern Biscuits: The Ultimate Guide by Kimberly Hansan
Each recipe includes a title, prep, cook and ready in time, servings, list of ingredients,
and how to make the dish.
There are no pictures. There is NO nutritional information.
You might be able to substitute for your healthier dietary needs.
Old cornbread with biscuit dressing would be a good one to try and substitute the one stick of butter for spray maybe.
There's nothing else we could even consider having with our lifestyle.

Ten Wiggly Worms: A Number And Color Recognition Book by Otto Scamfer
Colorful very dark with black words on dark background.
Like the fact that the numbers are listed under the snakes so kids can get used to seeing them.
Love color of the worms. Not so sure introducing a robin looking for worms is the right way to go, kind of frightening for a child.
