I found Keough's fervency more than a little off-putting. She comes off as strident rather than persuasive.

Keough advocates gluten-free and sugar-free baking resulting in a multitude of ingredients that I'd imagine most casual bakers aren't familiar with. (If you already know how to use various agaves and erythritol or stevia as a substitute for sugar, you'll at least be able to follow the recipes herein.) Moreover Keough fails to provide a straightforward, understandable rule-of-thumb to use wh

Okay my issue with this is simple - when you use the word sugar free - to me that implies that the sweet is reduced....how wrong I was - some recipes call for stevia and agave, so I'm wondering if it's not pandering to the sweet tooth anyway.....

Still it's full of interesting takes on traditional and new recipes, which is always a great place to start and learn how to adapt to a gluten free existence.

Wow, what an eye-opener. There aren't many books where you can say that they literally changed how you think about food, eating, and cooking, but this one, for me anyway, is certainly one of them. As someone who is working hard to lose a substantial amount of weight for various health reasons, including recently diagnosed diabetes, and primary lymphoedema this is a very interesting - and perhaps invaluable - read.

I LOVE this book! There are so many amazing recipes but the best part is that she takes the time to explain the science and reason to gluten free and sugar free baking. There are tables and an extensive appendix for substitutions, allowing the reader to know just what to expect from the substitutions. It's so well written! you jusst know that these are recipes she's actually tried! I really appreciate how much work went into this book!
Try the sugarless sugar cookies- they are everyones favorites

Fantastic conversion list in the back for alternative sweeteners, flours, eggs and oils. The wicked awesome peanut butter waffles were good although guar gum (instead of the corn-derived) xanthan, was a little hard on my system. I've foregone it in other recipes, so I probably will leave it out next time. Otherwise- lots of good recipes I hope to try out. I'm only gluten and corn-free, so I used the conversion list in reverse to make it work for me.

Excellent book. So many cookbooks are just pages of recipes but Keough includes useful information like standard ingredients, substitution guides and explanations of the new pantry items we'll need. This is exactly what I was looking for in a sugar-free cookbook!

Keough addresses a wholesome dietary approach that avoids quick metabolizing ingredients. A good read for the gluten intolerant.
