    Sugar Free, Gluten Free, and Taste Free Too

    I was extremely excited to buy this book and start baking these new recipes for this new diet. Let me make this short and "sweet". This book is absolutely terrible. After spending a ton of money buying all these new specialty ingredients, the food just tastes awful. I had to throw several things away right after I made them because they were inedible. Learn from my mistake and save your money and time, and dont bother buying this book. In the end, this experience has made me appreciate the value of real sugar and flour.

    Combining dietary needs into individual recipes creates interest

    Combining dietary needs into individual recipes creates interesting challenges for cooks and writers. For example a person who needs to eat a low-estrogen diet struggle with the common use of tofu for protein and texture in vegan recipes. Fortunately, Ms. Keough successfully provides tasty, effective recipes that allow one to eat Gluten-Free and Sugar-Free.

    The layout of the book is easy to read and use in the kitchen. Similar to most modern cookbooks, a holder with a protective cover is highly recommended. The current trend of binding cookbooks as novels saves costs while complicating usage. However, this approach is normal in the current market; this approach is not unique to this or any one publisher.

    Sections in the book are well-thought out. You can easily browse when you know what kind of thing you want to make but not what flavor. Fortunately the book is also well-indexed for those times when you want a specific recipe and don’t remember where it is the book.

    If you’re new to sugar-free baking you will need to get some supplies. Different flavors of Liquid Stevia are common ingredients. In the case of Ms. Keough’s recipes, you will also need a few other special items. This is one of the few downsides of the cookbook. She uses some less-common sugar-free sweeteners. Sourcing information is provided. For some recipes the components seem to make a big difference.

    Of the many tasty options provided, a brownie recipe is my favorite. The sum is definitely greater than the parts. Although I prefer a more intense flavor, that’s easy to adjust. With perfect texture and a completely satisfying bite, this is the best brownie recipe based on black beans out of my kitchen—and I’ve tried a bunch in the past months. Often a single recipe is the treasure found in a cookbook. There are more gems to be found and I recommend this one to get you started.

    sugar-free?

    Not really sugar-free - just uses agave instead.
