Here at America's Test Kitchen we have developed recipes for books focusing on many different dietary needs. Our mission this time around was no different, though perhaps more urgent given that 30 million Americans suffer from diabetes. Those with diabetes or those cooking for loved ones with diabetes know the hurdles that come with this diet. We believed that we could help by compiling a large and varied collection of recipes, all meticulously developed and tested to fit the diet. Lackluster flavor was not an option despite the challenges. We rigorously tested with an eye to getting great flavor while minimizing carbs, added sugar, sodium, and saturated fat. To make fluffy biscuits lower in saturated fat, we replace a portion of the traditional butter or shortening with reduced-fat cream cheese. For a satisfying breakfast hash, we swap regular spuds for sweet potatoes and bulk it up with kale, before topping with eggs for a protein boost. The resulting collection of recipes will set a new bar for great flavor and results that will leave everyone at the table satisfied.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The editors of America's Test Kitchen deliver another solid recipe collection in this practical and immensely helpful cookbook for those living with diabetes. With nutritional information, notes from the test kitchen (including advice on buying the perfect hunk of parmesan, how to store spices, and favorite brands of staples, such as Reese capers), this book offers diabetic-friendly recipes designed to limit refined carbohydrates, sugars, saturated fats, and sodium. Those looking to create comfort-food standbys will find more than enough possibilities. Dishes such as spinach lasagna and cheesy shrimp and grits use reduced amounts of butter and full-fat dairy as well as aromatics and healthy oils to retain richness of flavor. To accompany high-protein, low-carb choices such as steak and chicken (they suggest flouring only one side of a chicken piccata), the editors have created an array of delicious pan-sauces, such as one made with porcini mushrooms and Marsala. Whole wheat ingredients are also favored by ATK, as they pack in stabilizing fiber and proteins to such carb-heavy comfort foods as carrot cake, blueberry muffins, and pancakes. This cookbook brims with variations for hundreds of recipes, offering a solid foundation for healthier cooking. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
