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 tried two recipes so far, and they've both turned out wonderfully.
The Curried Cheese Omlette and the Majorly Spicy Citrus Chicken.

The only reason i didn't rate is five stars was several of the recipes I looked include ingredients one isn't going to find in a Tennessee Wal-Mart.
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!

I've read several Low-carb cookbooks and Dana Carpender's is the best. I will be looking for her others.
This has saved me many nights when I didn't know what to make!
