I was skeptical about this book because I thought the desserts would taste bland, but I tried a couple of the muffin recipes and absolutely loved them and so did my friends. I can't wait to try more.

Very Disappointed Oct. 21 2009
By B. Fuller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't buy this book if you are expecting low carb alternative recipes. They all contain sugar and most of them contain lots of sugar. Often a very small portion will have well over 20 carbs. I could never use these recipes without significantly elevating my blood sugar. I tried substituting artificial sugar but then why bother buying the book? There are much better selections on the net - better tasting too. Grab you wallet and save your money.

Excellent Book! March 16 2009
By D. W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm not diabetic, but I liked the idea of healthier desserts. None of the recipes are sugar free, but they do use less sugar and there are a lot of substitutions of yogurt, applesauce, or sour cream for oil or butter. I've only tried a couple of recipes so far, but I must say, they are delicious!!! I don't generally like lemon flavored desserts, but my family of three, including me, devoured all 20 servings of the lemon poppyseed cake in just a couple of days! The lemon lime cookies are quite similar to sugar cookies, but don't quite taste as sugary as sugar cookies. I didn't care for them as well as the lemon poppyseed cake, but they weren't bad, by any means. And the sour cream brownies, well, is it possible to say anything bad about anything made with chocolate??? :)
