I didn't use low-carb pasta in the cheesy mac.  I used a small amount
of an Italian brand fusilli.  The recipe was very good.  What I liked
about it was the sauce. Very cheesy and of course adding cream made it
even better.  In fact, I am thinking that without the pasta and adding
some chilies it would make a delicious dip.

I am against fake foods too.  Plus, many people find they inhibit
weight loss.

Glad the cheesy mac came out, and no doubt it was better because you
didn't use low carb pasta! However, I'll look into other brands....we
have limited brand choices up here in Maine. 

Anyone who wants their book signed can send it to me. Email me at
nutricomminc@mac.com first, please, but otherwise no problem. Kim meets
with me each week, so she can sign them as well. 

W'ere hard at work on the next book, and although we love our slow
cookers, are thrilled to be able to utilize our ovens and stove tops
again! 

Am out on business for a few days, folks, but will check in when I get
back. Happy cooking!

Finally got my book and will send it off for signing when I get a minute 
(and can get a few of the recipes under my belt)


Probably a stupid Question:  When you are tossing in the meat, should you 
defrost it first?  Or does it go in directly from the freezer?

kafclown - 

Depending on the recipe that you are planning to make, you could
probably start with partially defrosted meat.  Totally frozen meat is
not a great idea with regard to food safety and also the safety of your
slow cooker insert. If you start with partially defrosted meat, you
may need to cook the recipe longer.

A good and interesting book to read through and to use. Just got mine
late. Roasted almonds, did pot roast that was amazing. a good whole
chicken... still mulling on leaving eggs in there for 4 hours!

my cooker seems to be hotter than the ones you're using. I find things
are done in an hour or more less than the book indicates when you talk
about 7 or 8 hours. So, i'm adjusting. Also, some of the almonds got
burned inside in three hours. 

but it is great to have a fun new/old appliance to play with.

thanks for writing the book.
