'The recipes in this collection are for everyone! No more isolating persons with diabetes at mealtime. In fact, these delicious recipes offer both great taste and nutritional value – and easy preparation.' So says the first page of this new cookbook, aimed at diabetics, but hoping also to attract those of us not so afflicted.

If necessary, you can discover more about diabetes by carefully reading the first few pages of this book. Learn what foods to avoid or limit and find out how to gauge the nutritional value of your food. But, joy of joy, this book brings a whole host of wonderful recipes to tempt anyone who cares about their health – or doesn't care and just wants good food. The bonus? The recipes are easy to fix using a slow cooker.

Who can resist stews? Not me. We have Dawn's Mushroom Beef Stew and Beef Stew with Shiitake Mushrooms. Or the ever popular Pot Roast. The book segues through Main Dishes from Beef to Pork and then to Chicken and Turkey. From Tangy Pork Chops to Orange Chicken and Sweet Potatoes and Stuffed Turkey Breast. Of course, Soups, Vegetables, Desserts and all the extras such as Appetizers, Beverages, Breakfast Dishes, and Breads are covered – in a treasure trove of good eating.

Each recipe has been calibrated with its Basic Nutritional Values printed at the end. Wonderful hints are scattered throughout, both for the diabetic and also for someone who is concerned for their own health and that of their family. There are many recipes for the vegetarians among us. Don't miss this useful and informative cookbook - use it to start cooking with smarts.
