Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
CarbSmart Press released on Friday the newest addition to its line of low-carb and gluten-free cookbooks, and it brings with it all the festive fun of the holidays. CarbSmart Low-Carb & Gluten-Free Fall and Winter Entertaining: Festive Recipes that Nourish and Party Tips that Dazzle is poised to be a lifesaver for many throughout the fall and winter holiday season. Authors Tracey Rollison and Misty Humphrey have outdone themselves with this truly original culinary masterpiece.
“We are excited to showcase the festive recipe creations of the low-carb and gluten-free community's top bloggers,” said CarbSmart founder Andrew DiMino. “We’re so lucky to have the talents of Tracey and Misty, two very well-respected cooks in the low-carb world.”
The cookbook, which features both recipes and entertaining ideas for all holidays that fall between October and February, is a thorough and useful guide to entertaining with gluten-free and low-carb treats that even carb-loving party attendees will enjoy.
“Misty and I looked to our own successful holiday parties as inspiration,” said author Tracey Rollison. “These aren't random recipes thrown together into a book, these are actual recipes with which we've entertained our friends and family.”
Inside, readers will discover 90 tantalizing recipes that cover absolutely every base of healthy holiday entertaining, from breakfast and brunch to appetizers and finger foods to salads, soups, main courses and, of course, desserts. What sets these innovative low-carb and gluten-free recipes apart is not only the fact that they are truly delicious; but that they are all pleasing to the eye—something that’s really critical to providing the wow factor while entertaining for the holidays.
From the creamy, nutty notes of the Gruyère Egg Muffins to the natural sweetness of the Wild Blueberry Belgian Waffles, the breakfast section of the book is not short on nutritious crowd-pleasing recipes that’ll also work for festive brunches.
Full meals are made simple with the main dish and side recipe offerings, which are all feasible for cooks with even modest culinary skills. From the Roasted Herb-Brined Turkey with Gravy and Green Beans with Sage Browned Butter on Thanksgiving day to the Garlic-Stuffed Rib Roast with Coffee Rub and Eggplant Involtini with Pesto Filling on Christmas day to the Grilled Goat Cheese, Pesto and Bacon Sandwich with vegetable latkes for luncheons during any part of the holiday season, these recipes are simple yet inventive, and of course, delectable.
Hearty and warming soups and stews, such as Creamy Butternut Squash and Roasted Garlic Soup, as well as light and delightful salads, such as the Lemon Beet Salad, also make excellent first or second courses at a holiday party.
Holiday appetizer and hors d’oeuvres recipes are perhaps the most sought-after in the gluten-free and low-carb community, as the absence of starch-loaded breads and crackers seems to prove a difficult transition for some home cooks to make. CarbSmart Low-Carb & Gluten-Free Fall & Winter Entertaining certainly doesn’t disappoint on the appetizer front, providing an array of recipes including sweet, savory, crunchy, salty and creamy. No stone is left unturned, from the Cranberry Almond Brie to the Zesty Chicken Meatballs.
Of course, desserts and cocktails are on-hand as well: Chocolate Raspberry Mousse and Eggnog Cheesecake and Low-Carb Mimosas and Pearberry Sparklers, to name a few.
The book doesn’t stop at recipes, though. It provides many cooking and entertaining tips as well so that even novice home chefs can feel confident in their offerings. Full menus are also available for specific holidays or occasions, such as a formal buffet, Thanksgiving dinner and sweethearts dinner for Valentine’s Day. In the Resource section, readers will find helpful links to purchase gluten-free and low-carb ingredients they may not be able to find in stores.
“Compiling these recipes with Tracey was amazing,” author Misty said. “Now even I have more options for my fall and winter entertaining.”
CarbSmart Low-Carb & Gluten-Free Fall and Winter Entertaining is now available in all eBookstores (Kindle, Nook, iTunes, and Kobo) for $7.99 and will be available as a paperback for $12.95 November 24.
