F06497 - "George Stella's Good Carb Family Cookbook" by George Stella
Low Carb - Five Star
Amazing cookbook. I could go on forever about the merits of this cookbook. BUT, when something is this good, it can stand on its own. Thanks, George....you knocked this one out of the park!!!!
Ten Star Book!
Love the story of his family--everyday people. Everyday foods that are simple and GOOD tasteing as well as healthy. Best low carb book I have ever had. The Mock Mac n Cheese is the bomb! The Gingerbread cake w/ lemon frosting--so many to name. Every recipe I have tried has been wonderful. I love that he is a chef so taste is important to him which makes it easy to stick to. I just found out he has two other low carb books I don't have and definitely getting. Also check out his website lots of great info and support too and how to get started. My GO TO Cookbook and I have quite the collection! Kids of all ages will love the food and what a great example George and his family are transforming their obesity into health--they lost ALOT of wt--and showing others how it can be done to transform families too. Every family out there struggling with health issues due to being over wt needs this--we need to pass on good nutrition to our children as well and stop this obesity epedemic! This book makes it possible for real solutions and I can't wait to get the other books. I myself have lost 30 lbs in 6 months--in the beginning I didn't do it perfectly but was gradually making the changes--it is not hard and the inch loss is more amazing than the wt loss--you look like you have lost more. The only thing I do differently is in place of splenda which he uses I use xylitol which is natural and tastes exactly like sugar. I don't like artificial sugars the taste or what they are made of. But he is right on track with some great recipes and you can use xylitol cup for cup like sugar and even splenda with perfect results! You will LOVE this book!
Best Low Carb cookbook I ever bought!
I have so many cookbooks, that I can't remember how many that I do have, but this cookbook has blown my mind away!
It is so easy to follow the receipes and most ingredients I have on hand.
The recipes that I have made are awesome and best of all, my husband loves the new way of cooking low fat food.
My husband is diabetic and until now, food wasn't much fun anymore, but now, thanks to George, we have good meals to put together.
I have purchased many Diabetic cookbooks, but they all got tossed in the corner. George's book is on my kitchen counter all the time! We can't wait to try another receipe each day.
I just purchased the other two of his books on line here, and I'm hoping they will give me even more ideas for good dinners.
Thanks to George and Qvc for putting this receipe book out there for all of us trying to lose weight without sacrificing so many of our good foods.
I just can't say enough good things about this book, and" my hat is off to George and his family for doing this book!"

BEST ONE YET
I have a couple of Mr Stella's cookbooks and this one has to be the best one yet. The recipes are great and the pictures..to die for. I love the layout of the book, very easy to look up and follow. Super book for diabetics, such as myself...
I couldn't wait to get my book, however i looked through it & couldn't find 1 recipee i would have liked sorry qvc this one got sent back & I spent over $7 to ship back.
Low carb goodness
I've been doing low carb using George Stella's cookbooks for around 5 years now. I've lost over 135 lbs with eating right and exercise. This is another one of his great cookbooks! I've made low carb muffins,sugar free chocolate covered nuts, easy fast low carb crepes and much more from this book; that taste so good you don't even know they are low carb. If you want to learn more about low carb eating and recipes, this is a good one! I also enjoy seeing his before and after pics of himself and his family and reading his story about obesity in this book. It's very inspirational. Thank you George.
After thumbing through the book a couple of times, I only found a handful of recipes that interested me. The book is just not a good value for me for the amount spent and what I would use.
After one week of eating these delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner I have lost 8 lbs and 1 1/4 inches from my waist, have so much more energy and my joint aches and pains are gone. I'm a believer!
After reading thru once, I did not like one recipe
Did not care for not even one recipe. Book going back.
Why Did I Wait To Use This?
I finally pulled this out after purchasing it last year. My family has been enjoying delictable surprises every time I use it. I'm the only one who eats low carb and they usually complain but with these recipes, they don't even notice. Hats off to you and your family Phil for losing the weight and bringing your awesome recipes to us.
The recipes are amazing!
These are some of the best recipes I have used. I have several cookbooks. I often find that with most of them there are only a few recipes that I would ever make. This book, as well as his others, have ones the average person would make. I got this book 2 days ago as well as his 1st book from the local book store. I made 11 recipes today & plan to cook some more tomorrow. I tasted each before freezing. They were amazing! The ingredients are easy to find, the recipes are easy to follow. I never tried low carb before as I love pasta & bread. I also cannot stick to a plan that does not allow desserts. It's just not realistic for me. I don't have alot of weight to lose but I know losing it & maintaining it will not be a problem with this book. My husband who is a picky eater loved them too! It's great to have a cooking party with friends or family members. Everyone pitches in with the cost & cooks a few recipes to share. We all take home a variety of food to try to see which ones you like. I'll say it again. I loved them all. Cannot wait for your next cookbook!
Loved the book....how about another one?
David could you please have more cook books on the Low glycemic food / low carb's on your, in the Kitchen With David?
Would recommend this to any one! Thank's!
