(FAQ included) Jennifer, at 48 (Oct 26th 2004) - the day she finished the latest cookbook in her series of 5 Fabulous Splendid Low-Carb TM  Splenda® Cookbooks
   ... a time when most cookbook authors want to hide their scale!
Jen developed these fabulous recipes (in her books below) over the last 5 yrs.

A common challenge for anyone on restrictive diets is "boredom". We simply miss our favorite foods! Another is "Trying to lose that last stubborn 10-25lbs". Jennifer has "been there ... done that" and knows exactly how you feel! For almost 14 years now, Jennifer has been writing best selling cookbooks - which involves creating and eating many fabulously rich desserts and main courses, and she is living proof that eating these fabulous meals, contained in her books, need not interfere with our ongoing weight control efforts, or compromise our health. Her low-carb recipes represent a welcome breakthrough in reducing carbs and returning many of our sorely missed, great tasting, favorite old "comfort foods" to us, and introducing new one's to us. All (100%) of the recipes in these 5 books are < 10g carbs  per serving, while most (70%) are < 5g carbs per serving and many (40%) are < 3g carbs per serving! After personally developing and then consuming the 1,000's of recipes that appear in her Low-carb cookbooks, Jen is undeniable living-proof (click for Before & After pics) of the effectiveness of the low-carb-lifestyle and of the many fine recipes that make up her Splendid Low-CarbingTM series of cookbooks. Not only were the above photos of Jen taken on the day she finished "Splendid Low-Carbing for life vol-2", but they mark the end of nearly 18 months in which she developed and published her last 3 cookbooks (back-to-back) and this during a time when she was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (Hypo-thyroid) which makes weight loss very tough indeed! Chances are you will never see or eat as much food as what Jen has had to deal with in the last few years ... and just look at her now. Jen's books ensure your diet is not compromised!
These 5 low-carb books are really a "Journal of what Jen (and we) ate" over the last 5 or so years,  and that resulted in her regaining her figure.

              and the Perfect Sequel ...
  More Splendid Low-Carbing
All 165 tasty recipes are under 10g carbs/serving, 75% are under 5g, and 50% are under 3g! It's breads, buns, and Candy bar recipes alone pay for this book. It  features the highly effective "Fat-fast" and is almost a "National bestseller" as well. It's not tough to see why so many serious low-carbers love her books ... Jennifer takes great pains to ensure that NONE of her recipes compromise her and their hard-won weight-loss victories. So many books are rushed to market claiming to be full of "low-Carb" recipes, and many of their recipes, sadly, are just plain "saboteurs".

FAQ for the Splendid Low-Carbing Series of Cookbooks:

 Book 1:  Splendid Low-Carbing:

Q   Does this book have an extensive helpful hints section to help the first time low-carber?
A   Yes. 

Q   How many recipes are contained therein?
A   353, including variations. 

Q  What are the statistics for the recipes?
A   All 353 tasty recipes are under 10 g of Carbs/serving, 75% are < 5 g and 40% are < 3 g. 

Q    Do all the recipes have the complete nutritional analysis including carb counts.
A   Yes, they most certainly do! 

Q   Does this book use soy products?
A   Yes, a little, however, excellent alternatives are given in most every recipe, as I was aware of the fact that many people do not like soy or cannot have it due to an under active thyroid or underlying thyroid disease (like myself).  There are about 4 recipes in total without alternatives.  After More Splendid Low-Carbing, soy is never used again. 

Q  Do you have bake mixes in this book.
A   Yes, there are several super bake mixes and also an Ultimate Bake Mix which can be used cup-for-cup for white flour in your own recipes.

Q   Does this book contain regular cooking recipes?

Q   Does this book contain a big section of desserts?
A   Yes. 

Q  Are other sweeteners besides Splenda Granular used in the recipes?
A   No. 

Q  How many low-carb breads are in the book?
A  16 different ones, including a fabulous Cinnamon-Swirl Egg Bread, which tastes like cinnamon buns and is served with a lovely cream cheese frosting. 

Q   How many homemade tortilla recipes are in the book?
A  Two.  The one is just superb-tasting and my favorite, besides the new one that is in Splendid Low-Carbing for Life, Volume 2.  Somebody else was just as enthused and e-mailed me specifically to ask if she could share the recipe on a bulletin board with her friends, as she had been raving about it, and they were begging her for the recipe!  And, yes, it is soy-free as well. 

  Are there recipes for crackers in the book?
  4 different recipes.  Are they soy-free.  Yes, as I mentioned, one can choose to make the recipes with soy or without.  The soy-free crackers are actually nicer. 

Q   What sets this book apart from other low-carb cookbooks on the market?
A   There are substantial baking and dessert recipe sections (covering the whole gamut of dessert categories) in the book and the recipes truly are low-carb and acceptable on the Atkins diet and other low-carb plans.  I don’t think too many cookbooks have a Confections and Frostings section.  Each subsequent low-carb cookbook features this section.  It’s great for chocolate lovers especially, although there are other candy recipes too and plenty of frostings for cakes to choose from. 

Q   Are there fruit spreads and other canning recipes in the book?
  Yes, several.  

Q   Is this cookbook a national best seller?
A   Yes. 

  Are the recipes outrageously high in fat and calories?
A   No. 

Q   Are the recipes high in sodium?
A   No.  Some are higher than others, however, added salt in regular recipes can always be left out and replaced with Mrs. Dash Seasoning blends for flavor.  Typically, recipes with lots of parmesan cheese will be higher in sodium. I do not like high sodium recipes for the most part, so took a middle road.  Later cookbooks are also mindful of sodium content in recipes, as my husband has slight hypertension and I have to keep that in mind.   

Q   Is this book really a complete guide for low-carb living?
A   I think it’s a good overall guide and subsequent books only complete things even more and bring with them my years of experience with low-carb cooking and baking. 

Q  Does the cookbook do away with the need for expensive products such as ThickenThin/NotStarch, commercial bake mixes and low-carb breads and tortillas?

  Does the cookbook still require expensive ingredients anyway?
A   Ground almonds, whey protein powder (vanilla whey is a good price at Costco – about $20 for 1 kg), spelt flour and vital wheat gluten are probably the more expensive items for baking.  

Q   Does Splendid Low-Carbing contain gourmet-style recipes?
  Typically, the recipes use ordinary everyday ingredients.  The recipes are a down-home type of cooking and baking.  Explicit, detailed instructions make the recipes easy to follow. 

Q    What sweeteners do you use in the cookbook.
A    I use SPLENDA® Granular. 

Q    Who will this book benefit?
A    This is a great cookbook for the low-carb dieter who misses breads, tortillas, pizza and crackers, etc.   Besides the wonderful regular cooking recipes and salads, beverages and appetizers, it has a healthy dessert section as well. 

Book 2:  More Splendid Low-Carbing:

Q   What is special about this cookbook?
A   This cookbook is great for people on induction or the fat fast because 50% of the recipes are below 3 grams of carbohydrate.  This cookbook also has one of my best bread recipes in it and a deep dish pizza crust.  There are two lower carb bake mixes that only appear in this cookbook (one contains soy and the other not). 

Q   What is the fat fast?  Is it mentioned in this cookbook?
A   Yes, the fat fast identified by Dr. Atkins as an alternative for people who are metabolically resistant to weight loss (they exist – I am one of them due to an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis) is outlined in this book, with recipes and menu suggestions.

Q   Again, is the nutritional analysis available with each recipe?
A   Yes.

Q   Name some of the recipes that are your particular favorites in this cookbook
A   See the website and click on the book for a complete listing of recipes.  I have lots of favorites in here, but they’re all great recipes really.  Ginger Beer, Chili Italian-style, Hamburger Soup, Mandarin Spinach Salad, Apple Bacon Salad, Sesame Strawberry Salad, Taco Salad, Caesar Salad, Barbo’s crepes, Create-a-flavor Mock Danish, Jumbo Ricotta Pancake, Beef Stew, Cabbage Rolls, Cheese Tacos, Apple Curry Meat Loaf, Sirloin Steak with Lemon Parsley, Jamaican Drumsticks, Barbecue Chicken Pizza, Chicken Curry, Chinese Lemon Chicken, Shrimp curry, Tuna Pie with yogurt sauce, Salmon Almondine, Cauli-fried rice, Mushroom Mozzarella Bake, Oven Zucchini Fries, Creamed Faux Mashed Potatoes, Zucchini Fritters, Pepper Chunks and Stewed Tomato, Deluxe Green Beans Almondine, Fried Marinated Onions, Curry Powder, Lemon Ricotta Muffins, Cheese Bread Sticks, Wholegrain Bread, Coconut Chocolate Mousse, Linda’s Ice Cream Custard, Pound Cake, Black Forest Cake, Cinnamon Kuchen with Butter Sauce, Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake, Black Forest Cheesecake, Chocolate-Glazed Protein Bars, Condensed Milk, Deluxe White Chocolate, Peanut Butter ‘n Jelly Cookies, Gingersnaps, Candy Squares and Chocolate Almond Biscotti.  Phew!  There you have it – my favorites in this cookbook. 

 Book 3: Splendid Low-Carbing for Life, Vol. 1:

Q   What is special about this book?
  This book has some fabulous loaf and muffin recipes and also contains a nut-free bake mix (cup-for-cup substitution for white flour), in addition to the other cup-for-cup bake mixes, that is great for folks who are allergic to almonds/nuts.  Pumpkin Spice Loaf and Cranberry Orange Loaf are two loaves I still make ever so often.  One would never guess that they’re low-carb.  The chocolate peanut butter candy is quite addictive and my husband said that the recipe alone was worth the price of the book!  It includes one of the best almond cookies (flourless) I have ever made.  The Mini Hot Chocolate Cakes are an elegant dessert.  My husband and son, Jonathan, rave about this dessert – even just the memory of enjoying it, brings rave reviews from them! My mother-in-law’s Spinach quiche is the best quiche I have ever had.  The Sirloin Steak in Butter Sauce and the Bacon and Avocado Salad (super dressing!) is as good as it gets!

NOTE: Book-3 is one of our most popular cookbooks! If you have no idea which books to choose, it makes sense to start with Book-3 and get my 2 subsequent books (below) as well.

Q   How low in carbs are the recipes?
A   All the recipes in this book are less than 10 grams of carbs, while 64% are less than 5 grams and 43% are less than 3 grams.  All my books adhere to similar stringent guidelines.

Q   Does this book contain the Low-Carb Bake Mix that is in the Splendid Low-Carb Desserts cookbook?
A   No.  But it does have a fabulous “Vital Oat Ultimate Bake Mix (a cup-for-cup substitution for white flour and a nut-free bake mix).  These are double the carbs of the Splendid Low-Carb Bake Mix ™  found in Splendid Low-Carb Desserts.

Q   Name your favorite recipe in this cookbook?
A   I have too many favorites, to pick just one.  It’s a lovely cookbook!  Check the website for a complete listing of recipes contained within this book and each of the others. 

Book 4: Splendid Low-Carb Desserts:

  Why produce a book just addressing desserts, when people are trying to lose weight?
  It is not really such a challenge to change regular cooking recipes to low-carb, however, desserts do pose a challenge for many people.  It is not something I would recommend one eat every day, however, it is not out of line to have a treat on the weekend or if company comes over or even to take to a coffee shop, where you will be meeting a friend, who will indulge in a high-carb treat before you.  This book addresses the need for sweet, comfort foods that will be required from time to time and especially at times like special holidays.

Q   Would these desserts represent your cumulative knowledge on baking low-carb?
A   Absolutely!  As time went by, I did learn more and my desserts veered into  relatively unchartered territory, closely mimicking old favorites.  Most often these days, I make new desserts with successes usually every time.  Occasionally, I find the need to test a tricky recipe 2 or 3 times, before I’m happy with it. 

Q   What is special about this cookbook?
  It has my favorite bake mix (Splendid Low-Carb Bake Mix ™), which practically guarantees a low-carb result in your baking.    

Q   What desserts are in the book?
  Basically, the same dessert and baking categories as in all the other cookbooks, only more desserts in each category.

Are these quality dessert recipes that I can make and serve to company without having to explain that they are low-carb?
A   Yes.  No longer do you need to feel that the dessert you are serving will be sub-standard, simply because it is lower in carbohydrates.  Most of your guests will never guess that the dessert is low-carb and sugarless.  If they do, they will no doubt be complimentary of your culinary skills.  Have fun with the recipes!

Book 5: Splendid Low-Carbing for Life, Vol. 2

Q  This is the sequel to Splendid Low-Carbing for Life, Vol. 1. What is special about this book?
A  The book has the breakthrough Biskmix ™, which can be used to substitute for Bisquick in old favorite recipes.  (It also has the popular Splendid Low-Carb Bake Mix ™).  This cookbook has several lovely Biskmix recipes to try.  It has a fabulous thin and crispy pizza crust made with oat flour as well as the Oat tortillas in it, the lattice pie crust, and the Western Chinese cooking section.  The Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are delicious! 

Q   What does the nutritional analsyis statistics profile look like?
  All recipes in this book are less than 10 g of carbs per serving.  75% are less than 6 grams and 42% are less than 3 grams.

  How successful is the Biskmix ™ in Bisquick recipes?
  It is extremely successful in most Bisquick recipes, but do not try it in ones that use yeast and cinnamon rolls are likely to be more biscuit-like.   It makes  great cobbler and scones and biscotti.  Cookies are never dry.  It is a very exciting breakthrough.

Q   What equipment is required to make the Biskmix ™?
  A good food processor with a sharp S-blade is required, or otherwise a pastry cutter or your fingers to rub in the butter.

  How should leftovers be stored?
A   Leftovers can be stored at room temperature for a week or so and then placed in the refrigerator or freezer for longer storage.

  Are there suitable recipes for leftover Biskmix ™?
  Yes.  A friend of mine has had success breading pork steaks and eggplant with it.  I make Cheese crackers in the microwave oven; very tasty!
