I'm glad I did. I was surprised by the sheer number of recipes, many of them ideas I'd never come across before despite bouncing in and out of LC living over the past 10 years.
I would caution that while there are certainly a good number of basic recipes for the LC beginner (or a novice cook), many are a little complicated, though nothing out of the ordinary for the longtime low-carber. Most of us have almond flour, whey protein, and various sugar alternatives kicking around, but for those who don't, getting set up to cook could be costly.
I heartily recommend this book to any longterm low-carber, and suggest it to anyone trying to get a family member to convert.
Pros: Eclectic collection of mainstream as well as unusual recipes and lots of desserts.
Multiple contributers gives the feel of several books in one.
VERY helpful hints section with product information, conversions and suggestions.
Cons: TERRIBLE index!! For example, if you wanted to find a pie crust recipe you'd stumbled across, you'd need to look under 'Miscellaneous', not pie or crust. No listing by food type (eg. Pizza) or cooking type, (eg. Slow cooker) despite having several recipes.
I was NOT disappointed! Honestly, even though it's decently priced, it is worth way more. Really, you will NOT be sorry. You won't find a handful of good recipes and the rest fillers... no, these are all terrific! Everything I've tried so far is wonderful. Sure, you have to get set up with a few ingredients that are used repeatedly in lowcarb/gluten free cooking... you know, like almond meal, your favorite kinds of sweeteners that are not sugar, coconut oil, maybe some whey protein powder and some coconut flour. But once on hand, you're good to go.
Okay, I'll fess up here: I get tired of people on a "diet" who say they can't have this, they have to give up that, whine whine. Well, I don't give up anything! This cookbook shows you that there are healthy alternatives to almost anything you might miss from the "old" days... you know, the days where what we ate made us unhealthy and fat!
Donuts, carrot cake, pies, stuffed mushrooms, banana cream pie, biscuits and gravy, blueberry muffins, personal pan pizzas, chocolate chip cookies, maple pecan flax granola, waffles, bbq ribs, ice cream, corn dogs, buffalo wings, eggnog french toast, German bacon salad, scalloped potatoes, chocolate torte, french silk pie, new york cheesecake, gobs more... YIKES, I just made myself hungry! And these aren't "junk" food. They are all sugarfree/gluten free, healthier versions of the old way. This is the NEW way, the healthy way, for life.
Do ya think I love this cookbook??? :-D
Edited Sept 29, 2012: Thanks to a good comment by Hazeleyes, I wanted to add some new info here:
I don't want to give the impression this is mostly a dessert cookbook. It surely is not! I guess lots of folks new to low carbing and gluten free, who miss the desserts, are interested in that info.
Let's see if I can give some more specifics:
There are 5 main recipe contributors, well known cooks in the low carb world.
Each author has their section, in which they share recipes from the following categories:
Appetizers & Beverages; Breads, Muffins & More; Breakfasts; Main Courses & Sides; Soups & Salads; Sweet Endings; and Miscellaneous.
The dessert category is only one among the seven. The book is 339 pages, and includes lots of info and resources to go along with the recipes.
Here are just some of my personal favorites (all sugarfree, lowcarb, gluten free): Chicken Cordon Bleu; Rosemary Garlic Scones; Roasted Cauliflower with Feta and Walnuts; Maria's Pizza Crust; Beef Stroganoff (uses cabbage "noodles"); Maple Pecan Flax Granola; Maple's Meatballs (fantastic!); Bacon Cheeseburger Soup; Eggcellent Meatloaf with Bacon; Low Carb Pancakes; Finger Food Tuna Snacks; 24 Hour Chili; Coconut Bread French Toast; Breakfast Bonanza Muffins (with eggs & sausage); Turkey, Spinach & Feta Burgers.
I find many of the recipes are forgiving... I can swap out an ingredient if I don't have it on hand. For instance, I used ground hamburger instead of ground turkey for that last one I listed, the Turkey, Spinach & Feta Burgers. My husband LOVES those!! I've made them several times.
There are many, many condiment type recipes. Sauces, creams, dressings, breads, crackers, crusts,
coatings, dips, gravies, bake mixes, glazes, frostings, salad toppers, rubs, etc. Anything you might need, but thought you'd have to give up going gluten/sugar free. You can go as fancy or simple for a meal as you wish.
I hope this helps. :-)
