Sometimes you do have to order online ingredients for many of the low carb cookbooks, depending on where you live and what is available. So? Almond flour (which is much healthier)is not as available as white flour in most supermarkets--yet. Same for some other low carb ingredients. This is a low carb cookbook. If you want to use regular flour, buy a regular cookbook.
The intent of this book isn't necessarily to give you all the low carb recipes you'll ever need, but to provide you with tasty substitutes for those foods you really miss so you won't fall of the low carb wagon. These are comfort foods, sorely needed by me and most of my low carb friends!
A couple of the reviews I've read here seem to indicate the reviewers a) haven't used this cook book b) don't understand the logic behind low carb living or c) both.
The Magic Rolls are terrific -- yes, they call for flour, but not unprocessed white flour. No, it doesn't use sugar at all. For recipes needing sugar, they suggest a well-known sugar substitute. The rolls came out fabulously; we have used them as rolls, bagel substitutes, hamburger rolls etc. All of the ingredients were found in a large chain grocery store here in Ohio. The preparation didn't take too much hard work, I made a lot and froze what wasn't devoured (only takes a microwave moment to warm them up from frozen).
Why I love this book best -- I recognized many of their recipes, found (and used by me) scattered through other low carb books -- this one has all the ones I love tucked inside, plus more. And they have helpful low carb cooking information in the opening part of the book.Read more ›

The recipes in this book create inedible food-like material. You will need powders and strange substances that will not be comforting.Published on Feb. 3 2014 by Judith
