As Webb (The Diabetes Food and Nutrition Bible) writes in her introduction to this collection of comfort food recipes geared towards diabetics: "When people are first diagnosed with diabetes, they fear that all of the foods they cherish will be eliminated in favor of sparse, bland food." Proving that one can literally have their Double Chocolate Brownies and eat them too, Webb proves her point again and again, often by simply replacing high fat ingredients with low or no-fat alternatives. This approach, coupled with Webb's reliance on standard recipes, enables diabetics and family members to enjoy macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, and cheesecake without guilt (in addition to low-fat ingredients, she provides nutritional information for each recipe). Granted, her recipes generally adhere to the classic preparations and she heavily favors the familiar (Spaghetti Carbonara, Caesar Salad with Chicken and Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli Soup), but those recently diagnosed and/or those new to cooking will appreciate this solid, wide-ranging collection of diabetic-friendly dishes for all times and appetites. Bonus points for picking recipes that call for ingredients virtually anyone, anywhere can source. Photos. (Oct.)
