About the Author
Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say "You can't eat that way long-term." Her eight cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, "What's for supper?" To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana blogs about low carb nutrition at www.HoldtheToast.com; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor of "CarbSmart" magazine at www.CarbSmart.com, as well as a featured staff writer. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.

Although she has included quite a few of the recipes that she has already published in her lowcarbezine, this does not detract from the value of the book at all, as (at last!) the recipes that I love to cook are now in one easy to find place! :-)
She doesn't rely on "funky" ingredients, that you can only obtain in the US, to achieve excellent results (unlike some other US LC cookbooks) and even gives "conversion" notes for her international readers.
I highly recommend the Sunflower Parmesan Crackers, Hazelnut Shortbread, Helen's Chocolate Bread-pudding, Not-so-hard sauce, and for The Tia Maria Lovers out there, Mockahula!
I LOVE Dana's work, her style is friendly and very readable, and she comes over as a genuine and honest person.
10 out of 10! :-)
It has a massive range of recipes from quick and easy to those that take longer. The carb count is broken down for each recipe too so you can count your carbs easily.
This has some delicious recipes included and this is definitely one for the shelf if you plan to eat low carb long term.
The style of writing reminds me a little of Nigella Lawson, that chatty, I'm stood next to you in the kitchen holding a conversation type of prose, but without Nigella's sophistication.
However the book does hold lots of tips on low carb eating in general, and most of the receipes I've tried have worked well. I particular enjoyed "Sloppy Jose" and "Glazed Turnips". This is definitely a useful book for any low carber, especially with the present limited resources available in the UK.
Each receipe has a carbohydrate break down, showing total carbs and net carbs (i.e. minus the fibre). And there are useful receipes for party/snacks that can be kept in the fridge for those time you just want to nibble!
A good buy for low carbers/ those avoiding sugar.
Also, there are NO pictures in this book. That's not an issue for me, but it might be for some others. However it is already a *hefty* tome, and adding pictures would probably make it impractically thick! :-)
Despite all the comments I've made above, I still rate this as a four-star book. There is something in here for everybody trying to cook low carb - so even if there might be 100 recipes you couldn't easily make in the UK, there are still hundreds which you can still manage with ingredients easily sourced over here.
I still often refer to this book, but for those that would struggle with the convertions then instead I'd recommend her (internationalised) follow-up book - the imaginatively titled "500 More Low-Carb Recipes". That book includes metric measurements and much more 'international' food... but still no pictures... :-)
I would have liked plain and simple everyday recipes with everyday ingredients.
