Overview

More and more Americans are being diagnosed with diabetes than ever before, and many others are realizing that they have a genetic predisposition (or lifestyle) that is likely to lead to diabetes, But what to do about the inevitable craving for dessert? We all have it, but diabetics have long been left without a satisfying, healthful way to enjoy a sweet treat after a meal. Jean C. Wade, a diabetic herself, has created a cookbook that is chock-full of welcome answers to the dilemma that plagues diabetics and dieters alike: how do you make delectable desserts without using sugar, honey, corn syrup, or molasses—all those highly caloric sweeteners that make blood sugar take off like a rocket? By carefully testing and experimenting with different sweeteners on the market, and often using fresh, ripe fruits and juices, Jean has come up with nearly 100 recipes that avoid the pitfalls to baking without sugar.
