    I found this to be a terrific reference for classic Southern dishes. My experience with "Southern Comfort Food" in the past meant greasy and bland, but these recipes feature seasoning blends, sauces, and alternative-to-frying preparation methods. Since recipes are re-imagined to reduce glycemic index, many use alternative protein-based flours and are gluten free, which is a plus in our household. I look forward to cooking my way through this volume and will recommend it to my friends. I requested I found this to be a terrific reference for classic Southern dishes.

I offer my honest opinion in response. I liked it so much that I purchased kindle copies for me and my daughter's family.

    I cook 7 days a week for a family of 4 that includes 2 eighty year olds (my grandparents).

My grandfather has a love for southern food that has taken a back seat due to his being diabetic as well as a slew of other food restrictions. Needless to say, I was very interested when I saw this book! Quick aside - in today’s day and age a cook book might seem unnecessary with the internet and millions of recipes at your disposal. It is very necessary. A general diabetic friendly recipe search yields too many results to be quickly helpful and, to be honest, if you’re new to diabetic friendly cooking the results can feel dubious at best. The Southern Comfort Diabetes Cookbook is written by Maya Feller MS, RD, CDN. Feller is a registered dietitian nutritionist. She briefly goes into carb counting, portion control, and the dish method. She also gives you a nicely detailed breakdown of diabetic friendly common ingredients, which is great even for those of us who aren’t new to being diabetic friendly. On to the recipes themselves... each recipe includes some substitute suggestions and a nutrition breakdown for anyone tracking this information. Also noted are if they are vegan, gluten, nut, and/or soy free right at the beginning of each recipe which I thought would be invaluable for those who need that information. Recipes range from breakfast to dinner, sides and mains and includes recipes for spice mixtures and sauces used instead of buying ready made which tend to be heavy on salt. What I really love is that while there are some specific-most-people-probably-won’t-have-it-on-hand ingredients, most recipes I could throw together easily with what I already have on hand. This is great! So often I find a great looking recipe that fits the various restrictions my grandparents have only to find out I need multiple specific uncommon ingredients that I won’t use often or fast enough to justify. My main interest is the sides and there are some great ones here like Dirty Forbidden Rice, Baked Vegetable Macaroni Pie, Stewed Green Beans, and Chili Red Bean Succotash. But there are also gems like Gullah Rice which incorporates chicken and shrimp for a main dish (I’m allergic to shrimp and this is still great using only chicken!) Overall, I think this Cookbook is wonderful especially if you have -or are- a southern food lover. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Outstanding, interesting and delightful cookbook. Gorgeous photos and recipes, too! Feller knocked it out of the park with this book. She's not only a brilliant media expert, but a wonderful author as well. I would recommend this whether you have diabetes or not! Healthy, yummy recipes anyone can enjoy.

Keeping a healthy balance of proteins, fats, and carbs sourced from whole and minimally-processed foods, along with portion control, is a key component for obtaining optimal dietary success. As always, consult with your primary care physician before making major dietary changes. The recipes included here rely on plant-based carbohydrates and combine vegetables, beans, whole grains, fresh fruit, and low-fat dairy foods. Portion control like "The Plate Method" is vital: one half of your plate should be filled with non-starchy vegetables; one fourth should contain starch + grains ; and the other fourth of the plate is for lean proteins. Food charts are included to identify healthy ingredients and explain proper portion size. Salt, sugar, trans fats, and saturated fats are to be used sparingly. You'll also find many tips and hints for the pantry, refrigerator and freezer, and kitchen tools and cooking techniques. Here's a sampler of the delicious recipes: "Breakfast Casserole"; "Veggie Hash"; "Blooming Onion"; "Savory Skillet Cornbread"; "Candied Yams"; "Hoppin' John"; "Brunswick Stew"; "Red Beans"; "Cast Iron Hot Chicken"; "Loaded Cottage Pie"; "Dutch Oven Apple Pork Chops"; "Jumpin' Jambalaya"; "Seafood Gumbo"; "Banana Pudding"; "Fried Apples"; and "Ranch Dressing".

    Great starter book for someone who just found out they are diabetic. Recipes are easy to follow and most don't have too many ingredients. Making a switch can be hard, so it would help get someone started. With fat being the driving force of causing Diabetes, there was still a lot of oil and dairy products. Switching to low-fat products usually involves more sugar or chemicals added to make up for the full fat in those products. I would say that the tagline should read "Over 100 recipes for a Heal Great starter book for someone who just found out they are diabetic.

    We love southern barbecue and this book delivers with delicious healthy recipes. The recipes are easy to follow which is great for someone like me. I have only tried a couple of the recipes and my family loved it. It was full of flavor but less calories. I can’t wait to try more of the recipes. This is my own honest opinion. Thank you NetGalley and Callisto Media.

    Lots of creole recipes which I am not particularly interested in. The only 2 recipes I found that interest me are the Hoe Cakes and the Ambrosia.
