One downside: there is no table of contents! Only an ingredient-based index! So if I search for 'cauliflower', there are 10-20 pages where cauliflower is mentioned and I have to go through all of them to find, say, the cauliflower puree. Makes no sense! That's the big minus for me.
I use this cookbook quite often. I have never had a dish that I didn't like. Yes, it takes time to get used to a lifestyle change such as this. This cookbook will ease the transition. While your taste buds yearn for sugar, your body will thank you in the long run.If you're on the verge of developing type 2 diabetes, you've got a difficult question to ask yourself: Do you prefer sugar and carbohydrates to having your own feet, a healthy liver and both kidneys? I believe this question has an easy answer.
My only gripe with the book is that the Table of Contents only lists the chapter headings and the index lists every instance of an ingredient without indicating which are the main recipes. I was looking for a particular ingredient and it had 15 page numbers under it in the index, most just leading to a page where the word was mentioned. Also there is a heavy reliance on nuts and nut meals/flours as a replacement for wheat flour--especially in the desserts. Since nuts are a migraine trigger for me, that eliminates nearly half of the recipes for me, but I still the book is worthy of four stars.
The day my guests were arriving after a long day's drive I decided to make some guacamole for their arrival, and I recalled seeing a beautiful guacamole in the cookbook. So I pulled it out and did looked up "guacamole". Nothing. Not there at all. So I went to Avocado, hoping maybe to see something like "avocado, guacamole" as I have in other cookbooks. But NO, I got there and saw: "Avocado 30, 46, 56, 66, 92, 96, 128, 156 ..." and on and on. Lots of page references with no hint as to what the references were. My time was short so I just gave up and made my own guacamole recipe from memory, which is tasty anyway.
I also recalled seeing really excellent looking muffins in the cookbook and thought they would be great to make for breakfast one day, so again I turned to the index and looked for "muffins" and again under "muffins" there was Nothing, Zip, Nada. This time I was lucky however, as my eyes happened to fall on the entry "morning glory muffins" - right above where muffins SHOULD have been in the index. Yay, I made them and they were fabulous. But suppose they had been called "early rising muffins" or "great start muffins"? I sure never would have found them by searching the index.
I later found the guacamole when I had more time by starting at page one and thumbing through, and finally found "chunky guacamole" on page 66. And sure enough, the index referenced "chunky guacamole".
But is a person supposed to remember the NAME of every single recipe in order to find it in the index? I'm starting to write in by hand in the proper alphabetical location the recipes that look of interest to me. But why should I need to to?
That said the recipes I have tried were really good: morning glory muffins, banana bread, basic biscuits. And the pecash butter is totally awesome. I love that one. :-)
