Editorial Review From Diabetic Gourmet Magazine:

If you've been a bit spoiled with fine restaurant cuisine, you'll love "The Best Diabetes Cookbook," edited by Katherine E. Younker, MBA, RD, CD (Certified Diabetes Educator).

Beginning with a great introduction which includes healthy eating to balance blood glucose (sugars), Younker goes on to discuss phytochemicals (substances found in plants which appear to help increase resistance against disease and certain cancers); sweeteners, a fabulous segment which is designed to help you choose the right sweeteners (natural or added, and natural or artificial) for your personal taste and carbohydrate target for each meal; fats and how to control them; exchange lists and how to use them; carbohydrate counting; and the glycemic index (very important in selecting the right carbohydrates for the best nutrition). Once you've digested the introduction, you'll be ready to dive into the absolutely fantastic recipes, some of which have been featured in "The Diabetic Newsletter" (the free newsletter published by Diabetic Gourmet Magazine). Each recipe is analyzed for nutrient content and Exchanges, along with meal suggestions and make-ahead tips. I like the tips which give me ingredient alternatives or substitutes; it helps to know what can be substituted if I don't have all of the recipe ingredients on hand.

Katherine Younker is a cook who "thinks outside of the box" with recipe creations like Greek Egg Rolls with Spinach and Feta, Hot Three-Cheese Dill Artichoke Bake, Penne with Brie Cheese, Tomatoes and Basil, Pasta Salad with Apricots, Dates and Orange Dressing (this is a "must-try" on my list), Fish Fillets with Apples, Raisins and Pecans, Linguine with Shrimp, Red Peppers and Pine Nuts, Veal Stuffed with Cheese in Mushroom Sauce, Grilled Balsamic Vegetables over Penne, Date Roll-Up Cookies, Chocolate Coffee Tiramisu, Two-Tone Chocolate Orange Biscotti, and Pear, Apple and Raisin Strudel. All these, plus more in Vegetarian Main Dishes, Sauces, Marinades and Dressings, Salads, Soups and Appetizers.

You'll find 16 pages of color photography to excite your salivary glands and nearly 150 recipes suitable for those with diabetes and those who just want a taste of exciting culinary expertise in "The Best Diabetes Cookbook." This last book is one you'll want for yourself; maybe that's why it's called "The Best!" Highly recommended.
