First let me say that I own many, many low-carb cookbooks, and this one is THE best I have ever read! Not only does it offer recipes that are easy, fabulous and low carb, but the introduction and ingredient chapters were SPECTACULAR! The introduction was warm, witty and informative. I typically skim through the beginning chapters and get right to the recipes, but I couldn’t put this one down! So many questions that I had were answered. It included necessary and unique information about eggs, fats/oils, flour substitutes, sweeteners, vegetables, and oh so much more. I wish I could say that I’ve made all the recipes, but I’m so busy trying out the recipes from the first two chapters, I haven’t even looked at the other chapters yet, but believe me, I know they’ll be outstanding. This author is down-to-earth, funny and charming. I can relate to him so well. The low-carb lifestyle works so well for me and this is by far the BEST book you will ever purchase on low-carbing and low-carb recipes.
