Since my Mom and Mother-in-Law both own this book I was very concerned over the negative review....until I did my homework. Being apprehensive over the carb count I did an estimate on random recipes in the book like the Raspberry Wafer Cookies (mmm) on [...] and I found my rough est. results to be quite reasonable to the book. I found ONE recipe that features a cup of sliced bananas. And as far as "low-carb"...yup, I'd consider 24g/C Splenda (recipe only calls for ½C) compared to 192g/C of sugar is pretty significantly low-carb in my book.

The author mentions several artificial sweetener conversions...not just Splenda. He also mentions the maltodextrin filler on pg. xiii in his book and, yes, you can buy "straight" Splenda...it's called liquid Splenda. ([...]) Also, the packets contain less "filler" (maltodextrin) than the bulk as well as Splenda with fiber. If you're counting every mico-gram of carbs there are options to bulk Splenda. I also found that the FDA has approved Splenda for diabetics on [...] in the diabetes section. So that being said, I'm very glad my family has a healthy, as well as a yummy, delicious, alternative to making high fat/high carb desserts. My homework is done!

I received this book as a gift, and it was one of the best presents I ever got!
Love the recipes, and the "easy to put together" cooking. You want to use it, and then "just spin through" to see what else you can find.

PS - No relation to the author!

I bought this book because the author had been a pastry chef, and I figured he would know how to make desserts taste good. He may well know that, but he doesn't know ANYTHING about nutrition. Although he includes carb-counts for every recipe, I think he must have pulled them out of thin air, as they bear no relation whatsoever to the actual number of grams of carbohydrate in the recipe in question. Furthermore, to call these recipes "low-carb" is ludicrous: No recipe that features a cup of sliced banana (31 grams of carbs) per serving, plus sweetener, etc., is a good idea for diabetics or dieters or anyone who is trying to limit carbohydrates. Finally, Mr. Kline appears to believe that both Splenda and (astonishingly) the Splenda-sugar mix that is currently on the market, are free of carbohydrates. Sure, Splenda itself is carb-free. But you can't buy straight Splenda; the company markets it mixed with maltodextrin, so that it will measure like sugar, and that gives it a carb count of roughly 24 grams per cup. When a recipe calls for 3/4 of a cup of the stuff -- to serve two -- those babies are going to add up quick. As for the Splenda-sugar combo, hello? What part of "sugar" do you not understand?

This book is useless and a cheat. For Mr. Kline's sake, I hope he's not relying on these recipes (and his own seriously flawed information) to try to improve his health.

I'm close to being a diabetic and I'm trying to keep my sugar down.
I like to many sweets and this may help me out.
