Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In her second book of recipes, culinary expert Koch (Unbelievable Desserts with Splenda) expands the possibilities of cooking with the sugar-derived sweetener to include breakfast, lunch and dinner. Along with new desserts like the Margarita Cheesecake, Sour Cream Apple Pie and Cafe Au Lait Ice Cream, Koch offers a slew of low-calorie recipes for dishes such as Sweet Cinnamon French Toast, Barbecued Pork Sandwiches and Spicy Orange Beef. There are also tips for buying the right ingredients and directions for preparing a variety of condiments, accompaniments and beverages. Nutritional information and Weight Watchers Points are provided with each recipe. This is a very useful book for diabetics, dieters and anyone who wants to live a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing his or her sweet tooth.

Customer Reviews

Chai tea, hot cocoa, pumpkin muffins, glazed carrots, etc. all became quick favorites.
Elizabeth Scroggs
There is just enough sugar to make the textures in the food work, but the carb count and fat content was "a perfect fit" for my diet needs.
Wendy Van Camp
(Ive been making Marlene's recipes a lot, just those above are what I've tried in this book.

I came on line to order this amazing book for my friend on the South Beach Diet and was so suprised to see someone question it's accuracy because I am a Weight Watcher (points are in the book), and hate labels that lie! First of all in my copy, that I got a couple weeks back, the first recipe - Strawberry Lemonade- has the ingredients and I did not see a lot of typo's - so hers must have been a bad copy. I did find the 0 grams on the "compare" page - but it is clearly just an innocent mistake. The page highlights that Ms. Koch's Cinnamon Pancakes and Apple Butter Syrup have 11 grams of fat and then "compares" them to regular pancakes and syrup with 3 pats of butter. Since it clearly (in a box) says YOU SAVE: 9 grams of fat - along with 56 carbs, 195 calories and 7 points!!! by having hers instead of the "usual" pancakes and syrup you can see the fat grams on the high fat and sugar comparison should have been 20 (not 0). Yet, just to be sure I re-calculated several recipes with my own nutrition calculator, and they were all perfect - no errors - with accurate data and weight watcher points.
More important - this book not only has great food - Chai Tea, Pumpkin Muffins, a bunch of great Coleslaws, Spinach Salad (with hot bacon dressing), Sloppy Joes, ice creams and even Cheesecake for breakfast - every single recipe I have made has been easy and delicious. It is the first book I have found that does such a good job cutting the fat along with the sugar and carbs and that has good recipes for everyday use (and a bunch for the holidays). I am ordering another book, and her dessert book, as soon as I finish this review and recommend you do so too. You will not be disappointed.

I received "Fantastic Food with Splenda" as a gift, and what a treat! While you could confidently serve these recipes for company, this is a cookbook you'll use everyday, not just when cooking for special occasions. Author Marlene Koch's dedication and nutritional expertise show through in the well-crafted introductory chapters where she shares solid information on ingredients, techniques and dietary issues as well as in the balanced selection of recipes.

The book is weighted toward desserts and baked goods, but it includes a nice assortment of salads, main courses, side dishes and condiments. In fact, the biggest surprise to me was information on the calories packed into food that I thought was healthy. No more store-bought Three-Bean Salad for me. Marlene's recipe saves fat and carbs and is even tastier than the standard versions! Also delicious is the Chinese Chicken Salad and I can hardly wait to try the Barbequed Pork Sandwiches, Caribbean Chicken and Southwest Salmon.

Recipes for low fat and calorie dressings, sauces and beverages help readers cut the fat and sugar from all parts of a daily menu. Healthy ingredients and complex carbohydrates such as oats and brown rice are the focus in many recipes, but never at the expense of flavor. Yummy snacks and desserts include Spicy Pumpkin Muffins, Sour Cream Almond Poppy Seed Loaf, Strawberry Dream Pie and a plethora of cheesecakes.

Marlene truly teaches you how to have your cake and eat it too.

I have been on a moderate carb diet for a few years and was experimenting with recipes that would fit with my exchange diet and carb counting. Splenda had been on the market for only a year and few people knew how to cook with it and gain good results. Enter Marlene Koch into my life. Her recipes from this book were just what the doctor ordered. There is just enough sugar to make the textures in the food work, but the carb count and fat content was "a perfect fit" for my diet needs. Not only that, but every recipe I tried tasted fantastic and this book has allowed me to return classic recipes such as three bean salad, coleslaw, gingerbread and "sugar" cookies back into my diet without guilt or ill effects. I've made many of the recipes in this book and make her "Heavenly Cheesecake" for my holiday table each year.

Thank you Marlene for all your hard work. I'm looking forward to reading and cooking from more of your books!

I have tried many receipes from this book, and there is only only one that I won't make again. Not only are the receipes in the book excellant, but I have used the book as a resource for changing other receipes to use Splenda. I have also modified some of the book's receipes to use more whole grains with good results. We like the fact that not only do the receipes use Splenda, but they are also low in fat. My only complaint is that the book does not show the number of grams of sugar, as we don't use the Diabetic exchange method, but use the food index and load information. I also have her prior book "Unbelievable Desserts with Splenda" which does give the sugar grams with the carbohydrate grams. However, I like this book better because it provides receipes for a wider variety of foods.
