Now along comes Drs. Eades and Ursula Solom with recipes that are exactly what they advertise: Comfort Foods. Tonight, we enjoyed delicious Chili Con Carne with Black Soy Beans and slices of Best Whole Wheat Bread and butter. All low-carb, satisfying and delicious. For breakfast, we added a slice of Super Banana Bread mini-loaf to our plate of ham and eggs. Hard to believe it was low-carb, it tasted (and rose) just like the real McCoy.
Most of the recipes freeze, so I can make a variety of baked goods on the weekend, freeze and have them handy for days to come.
I can hardly wait to try the Cinnamon Rolls, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Elegant Biscuits and so much more.
If you enjoy a low-carb lifestyle, this book belongs in your arsenal.
The intent of this book isn't necessarily to give you all the low carb recipes you'll ever need, but to provide you with tasty substitutes for those foods you really miss so you won't fall of the low carb wagon. These are comfort foods, sorely needed by me and most of my low carb friends!
A couple of the reviews I've read here seem to indicate the reviewers a) haven't used this cook book b) don't understand the logic behind low carb living or c) both.
The Magic Rolls are terrific -- yes, they call for flour, but not unprocessed white flour. No, it doesn't use sugar at all. For recipes needing sugar, they suggest a well-known sugar substitute. The rolls came out fabulously; we have used them as rolls, bagel substitutes, hamburger rolls etc. All of the ingredients were found in a large chain grocery store here in Ohio. The preparation didn't take too much hard work, I made a lot and froze what wasn't devoured (only takes a microwave moment to warm them up from frozen).
Why I love this book best -- I recognized many of their recipes, found (and used by me) scattered through other low carb books -- this one has all the ones I love tucked inside, plus more. And they have helpful low carb cooking information in the opening part of the book.Read more ›
The book has 300 recipes, and in hardcover format is a bit hard to keep open and use. So I use this in conjunction with 500 Low Carb Recipes, which is my main cookbook
IMPORTANT NOTE: The introduction clearly states that all carb numbers in this book are for CARBS THAT COUNT so they explicitly state that the fiber numbers are ALREADY DEDUCTED. People on Atkins and other diets can rest assured that these numbers are the "real" carbs in each dish.
Comfort Foods fills in the gaps with the things you crave. There are lots of bread recipes, pancakes, crepes, mock mashed potatoes, eggplant parmigiana, low carb cheesecake, and much more. There are meals that fit the needs for those on the super-low-carb induction diet, as well as many meals that are great for those on a lifetime maintenance of their health and weight.
Since most of what we eat are fresh vegetables and meats, we don't usually need the comfort recipes in this book. But it is DEFINITELY good to have on the shelf, so that if we really decide we want to have pancakes or fresh bread or something "like" mashed potatoes to go with our turkey dinner, the solution is right there, easy to make and healthy too!
The opening chapters do a great job of explaining the unfamiliar ingredients. I found all the flour replacements in a local health food store, Whole Foods (soy power, protein whey power, vital wheat gluten flour, whole wheat flour, etc.). I learned about the low-carb Black Soy Bean and made a wonderful chili (bean soup next?). This is a great book for us low-carb folks.

Cute idea, but i find that I don't really use it all that often. More of an impulse purchase, I guess. It does meet a need, and has some really neat ideas.Published 3 months ago by jimofken
