    I previously purchased another book from this author filled with breakfast recipes that were scrumptious enough to please a diabetic. My spouse was diagnosed a few months ago with Diabetes Mellitus Type II. That’s a non-insulin dependent form of diabetes and, quite frankly, there’s a definite desire around here to stay insulin free! We certainly have the will power going forward however, at the same time, we’re feeding a nearly 17 year old eating machine who craves anything and everything. He loves sugar and salt. Most anything that tastes good to him is loaded with those two big no-no’s for diabetics.

    We loved the recipes in the breakfast book so much; we decided to give this one a try when we decided we needed to find a way to replace all of the snack foods we consume on a daily and weekly basis, especially our son. For him, we realized that a decent sized appetizer that tastes great would have just as much appeal as a sweet or salty snack if we presented it right.

    This book is really packed with some great recipes, many of which include tuna which “the boy” loves, lean turkey and some other lean meats. Tell a teenage carnivore that he has to eat vegetarian because “we’re trying to go healthy” and you’re bound for war! Now we can give him protein in the forms he craves (meat and fish rather than beans and nuts) and still stick to appetizers and snacks that are safe for diabetics.

    We all loved the turkey meatballs, the turkey quesadillas, and the meaty salsa dip. My spouse, a shrimp lover, raved about the spicy garlic shrimp and the shrimp kabobs (I can’t eat shellfish so I’ll have to go on faith on those two) and I liked the turkey, artichoke and tomato salad but my spouse wouldn’t eat it since both tomatoes and artichokes are dislikes. Oh well, to each, his own!

    Like the breakfast book, there are detailed, low fat, preparation instructions for each recipe. My one complaint is that there were absolutely no pictures, save the cover picture. Now, I know what a meatball is supposed to look like but I feel that some of the more detailed recipes could have used a photo. That does not keep me from endorsing this book wholeheartedly! Overall, we all found this to be a very useful book that we’ll refer to again and again.

    I am a newly diagnosed diabetic and a big appetizer aficionado. I am known as the appetizer queen in my office and I was afraid that my new diabetes would dethrone me. This cookbook has been my salvation.

    My signature dishes, the ones that I always get asked to make, are Thai Sticky Chicken Wings and Jalapeno Jelly Pinwheels. There is no way to make these diabetic friendly so they will be, sadly, buried forever and I was looking for a book with appetizers that were different from what you always see at office parties.

    The best thing about this book is that the appetizers are new, creative, diabetic friendly and delicious. Many of the diabetic cookbooks that I have purchased for my Kindle do not include nutritional information (crazy, right?) all these recipes have that info.

    There are some recipes that call for regular mayonnaise or regular sour cream and I have substituted low fat mayo or low fat sour cream (my husband has been told to limit his fat intake) and thought the carbohydrate count is a bit higher, they are still healthy and the taste is delicious.

    There are three recipes that, IMHO, make this cook-book worth the price of admission. They are the Baked Sausage Wontons, the Turkey Pick-up Sticks (I serve these with a diabetic “honey/mustard” sauce) and the Turkey Pinwheels (which make a really attractive looking platter).

    The reason that this book did not get five stars is that most diabetic cookbooks have more of a narrative before the recipes suggesting cooking tips, food pairings and general diabetic health tips. This book lacks all of those. The recipes, however, are terrific.
