    I greatly dislike "diabetic" cookbooks because they're no different than any other cookbook, they just take the fun stuff like fat and salt out of it for the Type 2 diabetics. This does the same but I read it because I do like America's Test Kitchen. What I am finding most frustrating is that some recipes will give you carb counts for "1/2 cup serving" (or whatever measured amount) for only some recipes, while relying on "per 1 serving out of 6" for most of the recipes. Bitch, I am not going to d I greatly dislike "diabetic" cookbooks because they're no different than any other cookbook, they just take the fun stuff like fat and salt out of it for the Type 2 diabetics.

Bitch, I am not going to divide my food into equal 6ths in order to get the right amount, just give me the cup measurement of the serving. Your carb info is pointless otherwise. Is there a good cookbook focused on Type 1s? Cuz I'm tired of the Type 2 monopoly.

A critical review reveals that all these books follow the same general principle; make good choices for your nutritional needs and follow a plan that fits your needs. You will find delicious recipes such as: Whole wheat blueberry muffins, berry smoothies, curried chicken skewers with yogurt dipping sauce, spinach salad with carrots, oranges and sesame; peanut noodle salad, chicken enchiladas, Vegan black bean burgers, grilled marinated shrimp skewers, Greek-style garlic-lemon potatoes, banana ice cream and much more. This book is helpful and but does not stand out as unique from other books in this area.

    I am updating my original review at the bottom. I should put a disclaimer on this review. I only read the "Special Treats" section, looking to serve a dessert at a family function. Two extended family members have just been diagnosed as diabetic, and have different approaches to how they want to handle their conditions. In addition, I'd like to avoid artificial sweeteners for my own family, especially my kiddos, and there are extensive lists of food allergens to avoid among them, as well.

Two extended family members have just been diagnosed as diabetic, and have different approaches to how they want to handle their conditions. In addition, I'd like to avoid artificial sweeteners for my own family, especially my kiddos, and there are extensive lists of food allergens to avoid among them, as well. I did like that this cookbook had a section on the pros and cons of using artificial sweeteners. The vast majority of diabetic cookbooks that I found at the library only had recipes with artificial sweeteners, not more natural solutions. An online search for recipes revealed the same problem. So these authors are to be commended on their completeness and the approach that they took. I did find one dessert recipe in this book that fit all our criterion. That, however, is mostly our "fault" since we are also dealing with apple allergies, and many recipes that don't sweeten with sugar or artificial sweeteners tend to sweeten with applesauce. That one recipe that will "work" is "Carrot Snack Cake." And for that, this book gets my blessing. I am not giving this book a 5-star rating because I don't intend to read it again, or read it more fully. But one never knows. I could end up looking for this library book again. That's partly why I wanted to do a review. So I could find it again, if necessary. - - - Update: I am lowering the review I gave this cookbook by one star from my original rating, since the only diabetic recipe we could try from it - Carrot Snack Cake - ended up tasting slightly bitter. I had another recipe from Weight Watchers, Pumpkin Oat Bread, that had been bitter from too much baking soda, and when I lowered the amount in a second try, it tasted better, although, of course it didn't rise as much. I would be willing to try Carrot Snack Cake again and play with the amount of baking soda in it, but I might try to go with an entirely different recipe instead.

    Having read many other America's Test Kitchen's cookbooks, I simply didn't find this one to be that outstanding. The book is all about making healthier versions of everyday home-cook meals by elimination and/or substitution. The practice seems to take away the essence of those familiar dishes, making this book a bit... "unflavourful" (to read). I'm sure someone actually with diabetes would feel differently than I do. After all, they are the real audience of this cookbook. Nevertheless, it is a ve Having read many other America's Test Kitchen's cookbooks, I simply didn't find this one to be that outstanding.

After all, they are the real audience of this cookbook. Nevertheless, it is a very comprehensive cookbook. It covers salads, soups, appetizers, entrees (of different meats and vegetarian options), and desserts. Though it's not a book I would add to my collection, there are recipes here that seem interesting enough for me to try: Tofu Scramble with Bell Pepper, Shallot, and Herbs Fried Eggs with Garlicky Swiss Chard and Bell Pepper Fried Eggs with Sweet Potatoes and Turkey Sausage Breakfast Tacos Avocado and Bean Toast Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage Chia Pudding with Fresh Fruit and Coconut Orange-Fennel Spiced Almonds Curried Chicken Skewers with Yogurt Dipping Sauce Smoke Salmon Rolls Garden Minestrone Hearty Ten Vegetable Stew Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Spinach Salad with Carrots, Oranges, and Sesame Warm Cabbage Salad with Chicken Toasted Corn Salsa Tofu Salad with Vegetables Baked Brown Rice with Shiitakes and Edamame Turkey Cutlets with Barley and Broccoli Pan-Seared Shrimp with Tomato and Avocado Sauteed Zucchini Ribbons Almond Biscotti Dark Chocolate-Avocado Pudding Overall, it's a 3-star book for me.

    I never would have picked up this book if I had noticed it was from America's Test Kitchen. While their recipes are good, they're usually *way* too complicated and time-consuming for me. However, these recipes seemed much more reasonable than those I've seen in the past. I especially appreciated the chapters on "Vegetarian Mains" and "Vegetable Sides"--which is what prompted me to pick up this cookbook in the first place. I'm always looking for more ways to get vegetables into my diet. And I foun I never would have picked up this book if I had noticed it was from America's Test Kitchen.

I'm always looking for more ways to get vegetables into my diet. And I found a number of recipes from those sections that look promising. As ever, the tips on choosing/buying, storing and preparing various ingredients was potentially useful.

    I got this from the library to get ideas for what to eat for dinner with my gestational diabetes. I loved the three dishes I cooked and found that the nutritional information and use of “carb choices” (the unit used in diet plans by dietitians and the American Diabetes Association) to be very helpful. I have weirder rules about when I can have sweets, so some of the breakfast choices would be off limits to me but I think I’ll still use this in the future to hopefully stave off a possible later t I got this from the library to get ideas for what to eat for dinner with my gestational diabetes.

    This is one of the better diabetic cookbooks. This book uses regular ingredients in a healthy way. I appreciate not having to buy some off-beat ingredients. It also focuses on low sodium recipes and products. Like most ATK books, it demonstrates techniques which is always helpful. Nice pictures.

    Good book, but aimed more at the diabetic familiar with what they can and can't eat. Not a good book for people just trying to understand their situation.

    Very good recipes, although many of the entrees, while lower in carbohydrates than average, are still over the limit for many diabetic diets.
