Review April Fields tackles the toughest challenge facing most low carbers, desserts. A must for any serious low carb dieter! -- Cheri Sicard - Fabulous Foods.com

From the Author I spent better than seven months devoted to this endeavor, experimenting and making huge messes in my kitchen. Some days I couldn’t do anything right and then other days I couldn’t make a mistake. I stretched the limits of friendships by sending home tons of trial recipes. My neighbors knew that they had to bring empty containers with them anytime they came over. My son took cakes to work and tested reactions. I passed off candies and cookies to unsuspecting relatives. They soon learned to ask, "Is this diet?" My spare refrigerator was packed to overflowing to the point where it was somewhat dangerous to open the door. Plastic often tumbled out and landed on feet. There were days, especially during the cookie/candy days, when I had serious doubts that this book was ever going to happen. And then a day would come along when a happy break-through would occur and I’d be encouraged and off and running again.

Over all what I ended up with for all the effort was something I wanted, a recipe book full of desserts. I know now that I can live the Low-Carb life and be perfectly happy to give up all sorts of things because now I have wonderful substitutes for the things I love to eat – desserts. I use a variety of sweeteners in concert with each other and I offer email support for those with questions about any of the recipes, including suggestions for sweetener substitutions.
