I ended up buying both books, because I didn't know.

This is a very interesting story - made enjoyable vacation reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is "Rabbit Stew and a Penny or Two" with a different title and cover., January 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ended up buying both, because I didn't know. This book has some Gypsy recipes at the end - the only other difference.

Regardless which version you read, I found it very interesting.

My daughter bought these for Hallowe'en, so I had some, too. I liked them so much I bought two packages of 50 to bring back to Canada with me.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this stuff!, June 5, 2010
I always buy two or three 2-lb packages at a time.

I like strong flavour, so I use a heaping tablespoon for a hot drink, plus cream.

For a summer iced drink, I use three heaping tablespoons of DB, and a heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder, plus cream, a bit of sweetener, and ice cubes. It is so good!

I still enjoy a good coffee when I can get it, but I definitely enjoy Dandy Blend!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Pleasant Drink, August 2, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have now bought five 2-lb. bags of Dandy Blend. I use a heaping Tbsp with cream and I quite enjoy it. Not the same satisfaction as a good coffee, mind you, yet I do like it for what it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars not quite what I wanted, December 6, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wanted this to help me get to sleep with the sound of waves. When it's loud enough to hear the waves, the music is too loud, so for now the music, just loud enough to hear, is helping me get to sleep, but I'm disappointed about the waves. I've ordered a couple of other cd's with just waves. For just relaxing, it's fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I have this book, March 1, 2007
IF you don't have a problem with eggs, this is a great recipe book. I've made several of the muffin recipes and and a few of the loaves as well. I reall like the taste and texture and have recommended the book to several people. Whether the results are high or low carb depends on which recipe you choose, and you do have a choice for many of them of using the stevia-only versions. You don't have to use a recipe with cornmeal or cornstarch; they're in those particular recipes for a reason, but not in all of them. You can choose coconut milk, or any other non-dairy milk. I don't get why some reviewers make things so difficult for themselves. Can they use every recipe in every other cook book they buy? I'm not interested in every recipe in the book, but there are many more I have yet to try, and will. Of those I have made, the ingredients, except for the coconut flour itself, are all readily available.
