I started cooking with this book. The ONLY complaint I have is lack of photos. There are so many gorgeous recipes, though, there's no way they could have taken enough pictures to suit me.

If you are just starting out cooking and you are looking for HEALTHY meals, start here, I beg you.

These are EASY, QUICK, and I know "low-carb" is becoming less fashionable these days, but because it's low carb, it's also low sugar and low flour and HIGH in veggies and fruits and proteins.

I didn't finish I'm not going to rate it. But it is one of the most terrible cookbooks I have come across. How it was rated here on Shelfari under: Subjects/Cooking/Food & Wine/Healthy is light-years beyond my comprehension.

It is printed on cheap newsprint using regular font, the pages yellowed. There are no photographs.....

DISGUSTING: Almost all the recipes call for Guar or Xanathan and several call for "Splenda"..... Better to use non-GMO corn starch or flour!

I've read several Low-carb cookbooks and Dana Carpender's is the best. I will be looking for her others.

Not too bad for a low carb cookbook; Ms. Carpender uses a few obscure ingredients which I don't usually do, but several recipes in here are nice, easy, and very tasty!
