Format: Paperback
Of all the low carb cookbooks I own, those by Dana Carpender really strike a chord with me. I like her books for several reasons.

In the beginning, she covers items essential to a low carb pantry and her product knowledge is vast. For example, she explains the difference among soy powder, soy flour and soy milk as well as discussing different polyols and their pros and cons, and includes resources for online purchase of low carb products.

Her books do not just contain one or 2 recipes that one might use, but many that are worth a try. When I am looking for a low carb recipe, I go first to Dana. I have done breads, muffins, quiches, catsup, eggplant parmesan, mockalhua and stuffed mushrooms, to name a few.

Finally, she writes in a breezy style that I find appealing, and offers suggestions for options and substitutions in the recipes. Reading her books has given me many ideas as to how to create the foods I want to eat while keeping the carbs under control. As I am not great fan of eggs, seemingly the mainstay of low carb breakfasting, her breakfast and baked goods recipes are most useful to me.

I currently own 3 of her books and although I already own too many cookbooks, I'm being tempted to buy her slow cooker book. I would unreservedly recommend her books to anyone who wants to move those high carb foods out of his/her kitchen, replace them with low carb substitutes and use those substitutes to create tasty, low carb dishes.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Recipes are good and different. However, I did not see in the description that I ordered the British version -- measurements in grams and liters, not ounces and pounds. Very inconsiderate, wouldn't you agree! Fortunately, my wife has conversion charts but still more time consumming.
