Everyday Low Carb Cooking is written by Alex Haas - who was the lead cook for the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It has great food for normal people!
The range of recipes in this book (240 in all) is phenomonal. There are many ethnic recipes, everything from soup to desserts, lots of appetizers, main dishes, salads, snacks, and more.
A nice feature of the cookbook is that the ingredient "grid" shows the regular carbs, effective carbs, fat and protein for EVERY ingredient. So if you start substituting things to suit your own tastes, it's very easy to know exactly how that changes the carb count.
There aren't any photos of food, but the descriptions and information make it pretty clear what each dish is about. A lot of the dishes seem 'fancy' but are really easy to make, like Burgundy Chicken and Chicken Bordeaux. There are tons of buffalo wing variations, as he feels buffalo wings are the "perfect low carb food".
A great book for any low carb enthusiast to have on their shelf!
