Review

I received the cookbook about a week ago. The bread recipe is wonderful and worth the price of the whole book! I'm telling all my low carb friends to get the book. -- A Satisfied Customer

I recently purchased your book Baking LowCarb. It is without question the BEST lowcarb cookbook in existence (and I probably have them all).... -- Ron Penna

If it weren't for these indulgent (yet legal) treats I probably would've fallen off the low carb bandwagon many times giving into cravings.... -- Christie

About the Author

I began the Atkins diet a little over two years ago. I lost weight and felt great. My daughters and son-in-law also started eating this way, more for their health problems which greatly improved. It appeared that we would be eating this way forever!

However, we didn't want to give up all our desserts and treats and couldn't find a cookbook devoted to just baking lowcarb. I decided to write some recipes of my own and thus this book was born.

More About the Author

My name is Diana Lee and I began low carbing years ago. I found it a pleasant and efficient way to loose weight but at that time there weren't any substitutes for those "white flour" foods I had once loved. This is how I came to create recipes and how my first cookbook came to be. Many new ingredients have come out since my first book was written and can probably be used instead of the old and I would be happy to help anyone if they would like to discuss substitutions. I must say, having these goodies is what as enabled me to stay a low carber for all these years and not feel deprived. My latest book, Cookies for the Low Carb Life Style uses the new ingredients and makes it easier to have what you need on hand.

Should you have any questions regarding substitutions in my cookbook, please feel free to email me at dls1015@sbcglobal.net.

This is a fabulous book if you like to bake and are low-carbing.

I also love the fact that whey powder is used in the recipes as I have never like the flavor of soy protein powders.
Annie
I have tried some of the mixes that are for sale these days and found them just ok and some not good and expensive.

This is one of the BEST low carb cookbooks I have come across! The recipes are absoultely fabulous! Ms. Lee's Bread recipe is the best I have ever tried! Bread is one thing we low carbers tend to miss, but not any more!! The whole book is super and a bargain at this price!! The recipes are easy, simple to understand and follow, and turn out mouth watering! There is no excuse to cheat, when these options are at your disposal! I especially appreciated the "Before You Begin" section and how she took the time to explain how low carb baking would differ slightly in baking time, storing ect. She also gives ingrediants to have before hand, which are featured in her recipes. Where you can find them, online or off!! Complete with url's and phone numbers! I also love the fact that whey powder is used in the recipes as I have never like the flavor of soy protein powders. Could explain why I have not found one recipe that was not devoured by my whole family, low carbers and non low carbers! All the carb counts and protein counts are listed with each recipe making this book excellant for any low carb program follower. This book has got it all! A MUST for any low carber, diabetic, or just plain anyone in my opinion!! I just LOVE IT!

As a low-carb dieter, I was really craving some baked goods. I received this book and promptly went out and purchased the special ingredients she uses in most all of the recipes. Such ingredients as Oat flour, High Gluten flour, Xanthan gum, Vanilla Whey Protein Powder and Splenda(a sweetner). It cost a bit of money to get started, needless to say!
I love gingerbread. Especially with whipped cream. Since all low-carb dieters know real whipped cream is okay, I figured this would be a good place to start. I baked it up in no time. I have to say although the taste was okay, the texture was definitely a disappointment. Don't look for fluffy and light. The cakes and breads I tried all had a dense texture with some sponginess. Overall though, it hit the spot with my morning de-caf coffee!
My favorite recipe is one for the Pumpkin Cheesecake. It sounds kind of strange, but the wonderful flavor of the spiced pumpkin goes great with the creamy cream cheese. I would recommend this one for Thanksgiving dessert.
I only gave Baking Low Carb three stars because of the "same-ness" of the textures in the recipes. I understand that until food chemists come up with a low-carb cake flour we will all have to find other alternatives. This is a good start.

This is a fabulous book if you like to bake and are low-carbing. The author makes it easy to start by giving you tips on what you need to have on hand and where to get them, which is really helpful. Some of our favorites are the zucchini and pumpkin breads and the peanut butter cookies. The nut recipes are good too! I would highly recommend this book for anyone that is low-carbing. It's nice to have a treat that doesn't screw up your way of eating healthy.

I recommend Diana's book only slightly less often than I recommend my own. It is utterly indispensible for the low carber who is tired of eggs for breakfast, for the vegetarian low carber who doesn't want to live on tofu, and for anyone who just wants to eat muffins and brownies and zucchini bread again. Oh, and my sister made Diana's bread recipe to make Thanksgiving stuffing from, and gave it rave reviews.
I especially like the fact that Diana's recipes don't depend on soy; I've become worried about the effects of a great deal of soy in the diet. Diana's recipes are low carb *and* high protein without it.
If you're on a low carb diet, and it's working for you the way that it's worked for so many of us -- you're losing weight and feeling better than you ever have in your life -- then diversifying your low carb menu is essential, so that you'll be happy and satisfied, and stay with this way of eating for life. Diana's book is a *big* help!! BUY IT!

I purchased Baking Low Carb some time ago, and have come to depend on it tremendously for providing my family with wonderful low carbohydrate, sugar free treats. Diana's recipes cover a wide range of baked goods, the recipes are well-written and consistent, and the results are terrific. I hope she writes a second cookbook.

I've been lowcarbing for over 2 years now and I have to say that this cookbook definitely helped me stick with it! I love the muffin recipes because they're easy to make and great for a fast breakfast...15 seconds in the microwave and they taste like they were made fresh that morning. There's a treat in this book for everyone on a low carb diet and the ingredients are easy to find and inexpensive to buy. I also love the fact that she's beefed the recipes up with protein...I'd recommend this book highly!!

This is a must-have for your low-carb cookbook collection, especially if you are on maintenance, or not on the severe part of the low carb diet. I have been on a low-carb diet for almost two years, losing 25 pounds in five months, then simply staying on maintenance. I started craving baked goods, and realized I was starting to slip back into a high-carb eating pattern. When I got this book, I immediately made the chocolate chip cookie recipe, and it is so good I couldn't believe it. They are crumbly, however if you put them in the freezer they taste as good as Toll-house cookies to me, and are only 2 carbs each. (Watch that you don't eat the whole batch!) The cheesecake recipes are great. I haven't tried the bread, because every low-carb bread I've made has a strange texture, no matter whose recipe I've followed. I intend to continue exploring the recipes in this book. I have learned a lot about how to bake things without the carbs, following the suggestions in this book.
