Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Roscher, with over 25 years as a cook and restaurant manager, experienced a potentially deadly flare-up of Crohn's disease in 2001. The result of her subsequent research into both Crohn's and colitis is this cookbook, designed to provide patients with tasty recipes that will supposedly lesson the likelihood of flare-ups. However, most of the dishes are similar to those found in many general collections. Readers will find such recipes as a standard potato salad mixture, Sirloin Tips on Rice, or Maple-Glazed Carrots. Even the dessert options are very common (e.g., Bren's Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, Pumpkin Pie), although they do offer alternatives that are lower in fat than the typical recipe. The fat per serving is probably reduced further by the sometimes unrealistic servings: most pumpkin pie recipes cannot serve up to ten people! A nutritional analysis is not provided for each recipe, so users must consult another source to compile accurate per-serving nutritional specifics. Recommended only for very large or highly specialized cooking collections.

    Title is really misleading - not a book for IBD sufferers!

    DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. It is terrible, and completely not as advertised. The title led me to think that this was a book of recipes for those suffering flareups of Crohn's or ulcerative colitis. However, most of the recipes have ingredients that are NOT good for IBD patients at least during flare-ups. Red meat, frying, spices and insoluble fiber are spread throughout these recipes and anyone who knows anything about this knows that these are not advised. Maybe these things work for you Brenda, and that's great, but they don't work for everyone and at a minimum, your book does not really give full disclosure on this. I would suggest that the next edition have a better more accurate title and better disclaimers on the individual to individual variation in ability to tolerate the types of food ingredients I have noted here.

    For a really GOOD book for IBD patients, I'd refer you all to What to Eat with IBD by Tracie Dalessandro, MS, RD, CDN. She really gets it right.

    Happy eating and recovery all.

    Relief from Ulcerative Coliits and IBS

    I have been using recipes out of this cookbook for 3 months now. My stomach has been about 85% better than before I used these recipes. They are very easy, tasty, and nutricious. The rest of my family even eats the food with me. I have ordered this cookbook for 2 of my friends who have stomach problems as well and they love it. I love this book and would recommend it to anyone.
