You can still have your cake and eat it, too, with this new Diabetic Cookbook edition of “Diabetic Dream Desserts.” Those of us who have already lived through a diabetes diagnosis remember that one of our very first opinions (which most likely came with the diagnosis) was, “Well, no more desserts for me!”
Not being able to indulge in the desserts that we once enjoyed is the hardest part of adjusting, for most diabetics; in this new way of eating. Now, diabetics need worry no more with Sandra Woodruff’s “Diabetic Dream Desserts” which contains more than 130 low and reduced sugar dessert recipes for cakes, pies, puddings, cookies, dessert breads, and other sweet treats. This is the Diabetic Cookbook that you have been looking for. You’ll find dozens of useful tips for creating and converting your own favorite recipes into more healthful versions, and you’ll learn just how using sugar and other nutrients can affect your diabetes. Knowing how a wise diet can contribute to your overall good health will help you keep your symptoms under control.
Each recipe in “Diabetic Dream Desserts” has a complete (per serving) nutritional analysis and Diabetic Exchanges. Included are the secrets to making such tasty delights as Fudge Cake with Raspberry Sauce, Cherry-Cheese Kugel, Molasses Oatmeal Cookies, Berries and Cream Cake, Biscuit-Topped Blackberry Cobbler, Zucchini-Spice Bread and more. Whatever your sweet tooth dictates, “Diabetic Dream Desserts” probably has the recipe or something close to it. This diabetic sweets cookbook gets a healthy recommendation for having your cake and eating it too!
I am amazed that this one book can transform your thinking about diabetic baking. The desserts here are wonderful! You must try the Peach Coffee Cake; and the Almond Ricotta Cake Roll. They are to die for, except you don’t have to actually die to have them! This is a great Diabetic Cookbook for someone that loves desserts and is on a limited diet. It has a lot of great recipes for the diabetic who has a sweet tooth. Even if you are not a diabetic, this is a great Diabetic Cookbook to have if you want to eat healthy but still satisfy your sweet tooth.
The only reason I have not given it a perfect score is due to the lack of pictures. Pictures in this Diabetic Cookbook would also help with preparation. It’s always nice to see what you’re doing at critical points, not just when you’re finished, at least for baking products. Also, I believe that the title of this book needs to be slightly changed. While it contains recipes for delicious desserts, the carbs for most of these desserts are a little high. The cookie recipes are the exception. There are approximately 80 recipes for dishes containing over 25 grams of carbohydrates per serving including all 20 crisps and cobblers. This is approximately one half of one’s meal allowance if you’re trying to adhere to the 45 – 60 carb range per meal. However, we must remember that at the time that this Diabetic Cookbook first came out there was no such thing as a proper bakers sweetener substitute. So, if you replace the sugar content with Splenda ® you will effectively lower the recipe’s carbohydrates dramatically. So, this Diabetic Cookbook is an excellent find as long as you do the replacement of the sugary content in the recipes to lower the carb count. In my opinion I find it to be perfect as it is for most gestational and pre-diabetics.
