    Can you recommend a few good diabetic cookbooks or magazines that is not too complicated? It's not for me, but for my father and his new wife. She cooks, but is not very familiar with Western foods and cooks mostly traditional Chinese foods. My father prefers Western or Japanese foods. But, she wants to cook the right foods for him and asked for recommendation on books to get. Nothing too complicated and easy to cook. Thanks!

    wave.gif Hi Molly! you've come up with some great ones! I am still looking, (just came in for a break from work) and was just about ready to sit down and put my feet up and devour into the depths of my information on diabetes and international foods.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Molly and Andi for the those. That book from Trang is not available until June or July which is ok, but I should have been more clear. I'm looking for regular Western diabetic cookbook recommendation because that's normally what my father likes born in the US. He is your typical ex-military person who likes simple foods and his new wife says she will finally cook something from books. So far all she cooked were her own foods - all from central China cooking. My Dad does not like the food and prefers the American or Japanese foods.

    Because he's been eating really awful foods like cup of noodle or TV dinners since marrying his new wife after my mother passed on, his diabetes is out of control according to his doctors. His wife finally understands this and says she will start cooking foods for him.

    One more thing about Trang's new book since it's not out yet I can't read reviews on this new book. I have two of her books and it's definitely not for a newby cook like my dad's wife - not something you would throw together for every night cooking. Too ingredient oriented even for me and not books I use too much.

    I am looking for something much simpler. Thanks!

    I also think his new wife would get more motivated by having books or magazines in front of her so she and my father can look together and decide what they want to eat. She uses internet but is not too keen on reading English internet and probably won't do it.

    BTW, I made a mistake by mixing up Trang and Nguyen although I have both their books. I really like Nguyen's recipes but disappointed in Trang's recipes that I've tried from her book. Nguyen's recipes are wonderful and her recipes are delicious but it is ingredient intensive for novice cooks.

    My mom has Taste of Homes The Diabetic Cookbook and it has nice down to earth recipes with no expensive ingredients or fancy techniques needed. I think it would be a nice gift for you father's wife and he will enjoy the meals she makes or they decide to make together.. icon_smile.gif
