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!”

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.
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.Read more ›
I have nothing good to say about this disaster, and can only suggest it to people who are not diabetic, are not cooking for people who are diabetic, and have no problem buying a book for recipes that are not new or interesting.
