Fashion Flash Book ReviewFashion Flash Book Review:Dr Gott’s No Flour, No-Sugar Cookbook

I’ve been a foodie since I learned how to turn on a stove at age 10- and my favorite recipe  is anything that I can cook and serve  at a dinner party.   But in recent years friends and family have gone gluten free  which has significantly  limited  menu options.  When I spotted  a cookbook that  was gluten free for company and sugar free for me ( I have type 2 diabetes), I knew it had to come home with  me.

Dr Gott’s first book – Dr Gotts No-Flour, No Sugar Diet was a New York Times best seller.  His new book puts theory into practice.  I can figure out gluten and sugar free main dishes and sides,  but its the appetizers and desserts that stump me.  Dr  Gotts Cookbook offers easy and delicious recipes that  fill in the gaps in my menus.   For apps Dr Gott includes recipes for sausage stuffed mushrooms,  crab filled endive spears. and a hot artichoke dip  with corn tortilla chips that  will rock your world.  I’ve become addicted to Dr Gott’s amazing  banana bread with oatmeal, blueberry crumble and a sugar free creme brulee  that I had  made 3x in three weeks.

There is certainly  no shortage of cookbooks, but  many are complicated and call for expensive or hard to find ingredients eg acai berries, manuka honey  and organic  miso paste.   Dr Gott offers recipes that are easy, affordable and people pleasing.  FYI the flour-free crepes alone  earned this book on my already  overcrowded  book shelves.
