Reviews - What do customers think about The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook?
Every recipe has dairy Mar 15, 2008
There are some useable recipes in this cookbook, but for someone sensitive to dairy it is almost useless. There are no suggested substitutions for dairy free cooking and believe me if you don't tolerate whey powder you will not like this book. Full of sour cream, whey powder, gluten etc. you will be in a world of hurt if you are like me who gets arthritis and rheumatic pain from these allergens.
Nice try, MD's. Too bad you know next to nothing about alternative nutrition!
The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook Jul 14, 2006
Recipes are good but loaded with fat and calories...don't use unless you are a strict Atkins's dieter.
Great lowcarb cookbook- a must have Aug 5, 2005
I love this cookbook. Full of some fantastic recipes and mounds of information on low carb products. Try the chili recipe with black soybeans, I couldn't tell the difference from any original recipe using kidney or pinto beans. YA gotta have this one.
yes tiny cookies have fewer carbs...no kidding Jun 20, 2005
There were alot of hard to find/expensive ingredients. The foods sounded yummy, but when I would go to make the items I would always come up missing one of the harder to find flours or powders. I am also a stay at home mom on a budget and some items are just way to expensive to purchase and cook with on a regular basis! The carb count is still offly high in a few items and i found it easier to purchase already made low carb pasta rather than spend all afternoon going from health store to store looking for the different glutons and powders. Being a sweet junky I also made the low carb chocolate chip cookies. Sure a cookie the size of a quarter is low carb. That one doesn't take rocket sience to figure out. It is frustrating to put all of that work into making cookies and find you can only have 2 miniature cookies. Many of the recipes are yummy but in very SMALL portions. I am all for portion control it's helped me lose 30 lbs, but there is a moment where portion control crosses the line...a chocolate chip cookie the size of a quarter is not worth my time...limited carbs or limited calories!!!
YUCK! Only Drs could author a cookbook this bland! Feb 20, 2005
I had this book on my wish list and was excited to receive it for my birthday. But I am soo dissapointed!
It is a visually unappealing, cheap quality printed book with a poor layout. So bland vanilla, I don't even *want* to look for a recipe in it! Even if a cookbook isn't filled with graphic illustrations or full-color photos, it can still have an easy-to-read layout, but this book is nothing but run-on recipes and uneccesary opinions by the Drs. It appears as if they simply wrote in a word document file and printed it - no setup, no flow. Bleck. Cooking should be art, just because it's low-carb, doesn't mean it has to be uninviting or lifeless. As my husband (Marketing) says, only a Dr could make a cookbook so sterile!
Other than that, the recipes are good but it's so unpleasant to look at - I'm giving the book to Goodwill.
