    Easy, delicious, quick — this book has it all! So you’re on a low carb diet, looking good and feeling great, but your family is definitely on a high carb diet and getting tired of the plain meat dishes you’ve been serving up lately. Or maybe you are the one who’s tired of them. You would like to be able to expand your low carb recipe list, but you don’t have a lot of time to spend on the fancy schmancy rigamarole that some low carb cookbooks require. If only you could have your fine palate and your waistline both satisfied…

    Very Disappointed Well, I have to say that I’ve tried the majority of recipes in this book and they have all been bland and mediocre at best. I really WANTED to like it… so I kept trying different recipes. The bottom line: I’ve learned to make some amazing, flavorful slow cooker dishes from cookbooks, but I can’t recommend a SINGLE recipe in this one.I’ve been on the diet for several years now, so I do use low carb cookbook recipes a LOT and am very careful to follow the instructions. I use my slow cooker weekly and have found better recipes for free on the net and from Dana Carpenter’s books (though I haven’t seen Dana’s new slow cooker book yet).A few points:– the thai-flavored dishes don’t taste anything like thai food.– only partial carb/nutritional listings are given.– spent money getting special ingredients like canned cheese soup, tapioca, red and green thai curries, etc., only for the dishes to be subpar.– too many carbs in many dishes.– not enough use of herbs/spices to liven up flavors.FYI – A few other reviewers have said this, but slow cooker temps really do vary by maker and model these days and the cooking times were way off for my newer expensive Rival 5 qt. with the removable crock (recommended by the authors). Everything burns if you don’t watch it – which is a common complaint about the new machines when compared to the classics. Times were more accurate after I went out and bought a much cheaper second crockpot (West Bend, I think). Still, the results were just so-so.

    Low Carb Never Had It So Easy!! I have been following a low-carb diet for over a year and I am always looking for new ways to do low-carb. This book is outstanding. This book has great recipes with easy to follow directions. Every recipe has nutritional facts so I can stay within my net carb limit. Portion sizes are more than generous. So far, the butter roasted almonds and the rosemary garlic chicken are my favorites, but I am looking forward to trying more recipes this weekend. Slow Cooking my low carb meals has taken the stress out of my meal planning.
