If You Like Cookbooks, Then You’re Gonna Love This!

Filed under: Low-carb Recipes — @ November 27, 2007

I don’t know how many of my readers realize this, but I am a bona fide cooking nut! Yes, I’m sure you already figured out the “nut” part (HA!), but I also absolutely LOVE to cook. I credit my mom for instilling in me at an early age how much fun cooking can really be. In fact, I used to enjoy surprising her by having dinner ready when she got home from work when we were growing up. She was a single mom with three kids, so it was practical for her to have a kid who could actually cook. That was ME! :)

In fact, ever since I got married to my cherished Christine in August 1995, I’ve probably done about 90 percent of the cooking. I just plain enjoy it because it relaxes me and I can’t wait to experiment and try new recipes. When I started livin’ la vida low-carb almost four years ago, I had to adjust some of my recipes to make them low-carb. It’s a tricky thing sometimes when recipes call for lots of sugar or white flour, but it can be done.

Although I am so grateful to people like Dana Carpender, Judy Barnes Baker, and Jan McCracken, for example, because they have taken their cooking talents and created outstanding low-carb cooking resources for all of us to enjoy, it’s still kinda neat to take a look at some more traditional cookbooks and try to transform the recipes into low-carb ones.

Today I wanted to share seven brand new cookbooks from 2007 that are sure to dazzle you. With a little finagling and substituting of ingredients, just about ANY recipe in these books can be made low-carb. You might find something new to enjoy among these tantalizingly delicious selection of recipes! ENJOY!
