I've purchased 5 or 6 low carb cookbooks, and this is my favorite. One of the things I like best is that the recipes are not overly heavy. I'm kind of tired of recipes that start like (1 chicken breast, 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 cup cheese - 1 serving), mostly because I don't enjoy the feeling after eating like that. Most of the recipes in this book are for meals that my non-lowcarbing family enjoy. There are some especially good soup recipes (which is my typical lunch since buying this book), and I had received several comments on the coleslaw I served at a recent party. Some of the carb counts can get a little high (10+ per serving), but the carbs are usually spent on healthy vegetables like tomatoes, cabbage, or onions. If you have 30 or more carbs a day to use, you shouldn't have too many problems with these recipes. A lot of the recipes have a complex taste, but are pretty easy to make. There are no dessert recipes, and no breakfast recipes. Some of the recipes can get pretty spicy if you use the recommended measurements, which I love, but you might want to halve any of the spicy ingredients the first go around. The author does detail the carb counts by ingredient, which is a great idea, but doesn't include any fiber, protein, or fat counts. I know people following the Protein Power plan would appreciate fiber and protein counts. All in all, well worth it.

He eats his own cooking

And that's what makes this book so special. When you read Everyday Low Carb Cookery, you know immediately that the author is a trained chef, you know he has prepared all these recipes, and you know that he has eaten them. Alex Haas eats his own cooking.The internet does not lack for recipes of any kind, let alone low-carb. But there are none that are written out the way Alex does it. This book is absolutely worth the price and I will use mine forever. Thank you Alex.

The Spice of Life

Wings! As a lowcarber of 7 years, I rely heavily on wings as both snack food and entrees. This book has 18 different varieties to choose from! Love 'em! Slaw! You haven't lived until you've tried the baked slaw recipe. Just incredibly delicious. If you're looking for a cookbook of quasi-legal dessert recipes, this isn't it. If you're looking for a book that provides plenty of entrees and loads of different ways to get the basic nutrient providing recipes into your diet... this is it.

Happy Eating

This book has helped me to stay with my low carb new eating habit, I refuse to call it a diet. I have found the recipes easy to prepare, taste wonderful and keep me satisfied with low carbs. The salad dressings alone, make this a must have in my kitchen.

Low Carb Cooking for Real People

Alex Haas finally offers a cookbook for real people with real tastes. I am one of the fortunate ones who had an opportunity to use his book in original form and it was great! Every receipe has been individually tested to ensure great taste, not just low carb. You will not be disappointed!My personal favorite is Chicken Diablo, but you will find soups, salads, beef, pork, other chicken, seafood, and vegatable recipes that will suit your tastes. And, oh, buy the way, there are desserts too!
