Review

“Robyn Webb’s Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook is as good as it gets! Robyn’s clear and creative recipes and obvious passion and reverence for the quality and source of ingredients are the perfect medicine for people with diabetes and their families.”
—Michel Nuschan, owner and founder of Dressing Room, his homegrown restaurant in Westport, CT and CEO and president of Wholesome Wave Foundation.

“What a beautiful, compelling book! The recipes are at once simple, sensual, and customized for people with diabetes. Robyn’s overall comfort food message reassures that one’s diet needn’t compromise on pleasure when skewing healthy. Good food can do us a world of good, and can taste great in the process. Robyn makes this very clear.”
—Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook

“After drooling over the beautiful food photography, I found myself wish that the Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook was a scratch and sniff cookbook. Robyn Webb has single-handedly changed the stigma of the diabetic diet from one of deprivation to celebration! Brava, Robyn!”
—David Grotto, RD, LDN, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life!

The carb counts in this book are WRONG. Some are seriously wrong. My 12 year old daughter is newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I got this book for her and she was grateful to have something with carbs listed, so she could plan her insulin shots and meals. She picked a recipe with black beans and rice, which had carbs listed at 6 g per 1 cup serving. She was so excited she could have two cups for 12 g. I stopped and looked at the meal, which was comprised entirely of rice with some black beans and spices and thought the count seemed wrong. Cooked rice AND black beans have carb counts of 43 g per cup. She started crying when I told her the book was wrong. She had one cup, gave herself appropriate insulin for 43 g and her later blood sugar checks made us glad we didn't believe THIS COMPLETELY INACCURATE CARB COUNT. I looked up another recipe; roast chick peas; also wrong. Chick peas are 80 g of carb per can; multiply by 2, divide by 8 servings, you get 20 g of carb per serving, not the 11 g the book states. It sells recipes to report low carb counts. This book could really hurt someone. I don't understand the ADA name on it. I don't actually understand how the book got this far at all.

This has to be my fav Robyn Webb cookbook. About 8 years ago I was out of shape and used her cookbooks to start getting back towards a healthier lifestyle. Well, guess what, I let myself get out of shape again and have decided it's time to get my health back. I purchased this cookbook via Kindle and use my Kindle app on my pc. The recipes have real ingredients and aren't a burden of time in the kitchen. Instead of shopping for a week at a time I'll be doing my shopping for 3 meals, since so many fresh veggies are involved.

If you are thinking of purchasing the book, do what I did, get on YouTube and type in Robyn Webb. She has videos of her prepping dishes from the cookbook. I so can't wait to make the Apple Pandowdy. It looks sooooooo good. Her video of the creamy tomato soup had me box up all the canned tomato soup in my kitchen.

Also, on my list for this week: Rustic Garlic & Olive oil mashed potatoes (I'll throw a roast in the crock pot with onions and frozen green beans, so all the work I'll do is the the recipe for the potatoes this week), Ribollita, and the Chicken pot pie with phyllo, and apple pandowdy for dessert.

Just made the chicken pot pie with phyllo. First experience with phyllo, but can tell you not to cook longer than the 30 minutes. I sorta got distracted by 3 year old twins and let it go an extra 7 minutes and burned the top of my phyllo dough. (Oops!) Scraped off the top layer and the rest was awesome. Really it was good. My only touch was adding extra pepper. Seriously, so good.

March 7, 2012: Yesterday I made the Ribollita. OMG! The only thing I did different was after sauteeing the ingredients as listed it went in the crock-pot with everything else. I'm a working woman and mommy, so cutting up the veggies is enough.

Diabetes runs in my family, so I ordered this book as a preventive measure. I love the recipes. The mac 'n cheese is a favorite and alone is worth buying the book. (I just use gluten-free corn pasta instead.) Highly recommend!

Robyn Webb's "Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook" is excellent - well written and easy to understand with great tips provided throughout. I also enjoyed the way Robyn introduced each dish with a personal note. I have made several of the recipes and each one has been easy to follow and delicious. My husband who is not a seafood eater by choice loved the crabcakes. Don't be intimidated by the diabetes aspect of this cookbook - I recommend this cookbook to anyone who appreciates and loves to eat great food.

Everything that you could possibly want in assisting you to provide healthy, nutrition rich comfort foods for pre-diabetic and diabetic diners can be found in Robyn Webb's THE DIABETES COMFORT FOOD COOKBOOK is here. Eye-catching photos of palate satisfying food recipes are organized into categories such as sides and salads, soups and stews, one pot and skillet meals, plus tasty pastas and, of course, desserts, are here with detailed instructions for preparing such foods. Exchange choices and the calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate, fiber, sugar, and protein content are listed for each recipe at the bottom of that recipe. I really like roasted vegetables so enjoyed the roasted potatoes, carrots, and parsnips recipe, not to mention the braised cabbage and apples recipe. If you indulge in a favorite like mac and cheese, you'll enjoy the version presented here. Read, cook, and find out for yourself just how delectable these recipes are. Savor the trip in preparation as well as the end product. Amazon is amazing in offering this book online and so easy to purchase. Thank you Amazon for bringing this book to my door. Z. Smith

Diabetics looking for low carb alternatives need to look elsewhere. All of the recipes are extremely carb heavy (many 20-30g per serving). The author starts focusing on low fat and low calorie which really isn't as significant of a factor for diabetics.

None of the recipes are actually significantly different that what you could find in any cookbook since they don't even bother to be low-carbohydrate alternatives.

There are no recipes in this book that I will use.
