    I've read a number of keto cookbooks from Callisto Media and this is one of my favorites. It's packed with delicious sounding recipes that can hit your Southern comfort food cravings and keep your macros where they need to be. While it shares the common trait of most cookbooks from this publisher of having very few photographs, the quality of the recipes makes up for this in my book -- a rare thing for me, as I love photos in cookbooks.

It's packed with delicious sounding recipes that can hit your Southern comfort food cravings and keep your macros where they need to be. While it shares the common trait of most cookbooks from this publisher of having very few photographs, the quality of the recipes makes up for this in my book -- a rare thing for me, as I love photos in cookbooks. The recipes are also fairly easy and use mostly real food ingredients to match the flavors we've come to love. For instance, she uses turnips, cauliflower and radishes in various ways to replicate potato based dishes. While these obviously can't perfectly imitate the originals, she uses good culinary techniques to make them pretty darn close. Macros are listed for every recipe and I appreciate that it's not just the number of grams but also the percentage of each macro for each recipe, so you can really easily see how they stack up percentage-wise. Intro paragraphs for each recipe often talk about beloved family recipes and make every recipe sound mouthwatering. It also tends towards real food, healthy ingredients, with lots of low-carb veggies incorporated. It does rely heavily on dairy products and heavy cream, so those who avoid dairy might not find it a good fit. All in all, it's a great book though that's sure to make a keto lifestyle easier for many. * Callisto Media provided me with a review copy of this book. I reviewed it on Amazon last spring when I received it but after reading it again this month with a pile of other keto books, I wanted to add a review here on Goodreads since it was one of my favorites.

    When life for the entire universe and planet turns on its end and like everyone else you "have nothing to do" while your place of work is closed and you are in #COVID19 #socialisolation, superspeed readers like me can read 250+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book … and many more today. (I have played a zillion games of scrabble, done a zillion crosswords and I AM BORED!!!) I requested a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was denied.

(I have played a zillion games of scrabble, done a zillion crosswords and I AM BORED!!!) I requested a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was denied. I am reviewing the book anyway on Goodreads, Facebook and Amazon because I love to cook and bake at home. I BOUGHT it as my job revolves around healthy food, researching food/recipes, food deserts, community kitchens (so everything about food) AND literacy/getting people to read books instead of cereal packages. And because the only way I can lose weight (aside from fasting for weeks on end) is to NOT eat carbs! From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸. Take keto dining down South with 100 satisfying recipes Going keto doesn’t have to mean ditching comfort food favourites. With The Southern Keto Cookbook, 100 mouthwatering Southern dishes are back on the menu. Take your pick of beloved classic down-home meals—or try exciting new twists on traditional cuisine that you won’t find in other Southern cookbooks. Get started with a primer on ketogenic cooking and a list of kitchen must-haves. Then dive into a delicious lineup of recipes, including many dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. Southern cookbooks should include savoury chicken and dumplings, creamy coleslaws, fluffy biscuits, and sweet pies—and this one satisfies all those cravings and more with hearty keto meals. This standout among Southern cookbooks includes: ****Southern staples—Take advantage of the shared elements of Southern cookbooks and a keto diet: fresh veggies, full-fat dairy, unprocessed meats, and fats such as lard. ****The keto basics: Brush up on keto with info on tracking your macros, foods to encourage or avoid, pantry necessities, and keto-friendly sweeteners. ****Macros and more—Consult accurate macro calculations on every recipe, plus helpful cooking and substitution tips throughout. The Southern Keto Cookbook goes beyond other Southern cookbooks to fit seamlessly and satisfyingly into your keto lifestyle! I love southern food ... just love it. (Okay, maybe not boiled peanuts as they are too ... vegetal) I also cannot lose weight unless I give up carbs so this book was a perfect buy for me. It is amazing what typical southern foods can be made keto-friendly - I was gobsmacked. All the southern favourites you want are here, although they will never be able to replace a syrupy pecan pie to any satisfaction of mine. LOL. The recipes are well written and the photos made my mouth water. I cannot wait to make, well, the entire book - when I am stressed I cook and #COCVID19 is making my kitchen an assembly line!!! I do, however, find keto books are really heavy in almonds and almond flour which are pricey because supply and demand mean that they can get a fortune for them. (demand rises 5% every year and it is an 8BILLION dollar crop and 80% of those almonds come from California) Maybe I am preaching but I have a lot of time to think during #socialisolation! Bottom line: a great book for keto food that is southern --- and yummy. Lots of ideas, allergens are listed and cooking times are realistic. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "🙏-ed Social Influencer Millennials/#BachelorNation survivors/Tik-Tok and YouTube Millionaires/etc. " on Instagram and Twitter... Get a real job, people!) so let's give it 🥓🧀🥓🧀🥓 |Cross referenced/reviewed on: ************************** www.amazon.ca www.amazon.com http://www.facebook.com/janetsbookcorner

The book also holds a bunch of variations for recipes which I find to be helpful addition. These recipes are southern style dishes that have been tweaked into keto friendly recipes with a flourish. What did I like? Some pro’s and con’s in this recipe book which I felt are necessary to point out. My Pro’s: How to tips in recipe, author adds what to look for when you are buying your fruits...veggies, and meat. Some of the vegetables may not be familiar with and this author already gives you what to look for when you go shopping. Good rule of thumb is to read a recipe twice to make sure you have an idea how to cook it before attempting to cook, even if the recipe is familiar to you. My Con’s: Most of the recipes use a monk fruit/ erythritol blend sugar substitute which I’m not familiar with so be prepared to have to experiment. Plus heavy whipping cream.. I’ve never cooked with it so it’s a bit daunting. Very few of the recipes have pictures, I love to see pictures. There are some jalapeño and green Chile recipes too, which again I’m not a fan. Many of the recipes have a ton of ingredients, mostly spices for flavorings. All in all though the meat section was amazing, along with a great seafood pan dinner with picture that looked amazing. Would I buy or recommend? If you are familiar with the items in the con’s part then buy, the meat section of the book alone would have me grabbing it. Tex mex lovers? I’m not a hugely skilled cook and I prefer much simpler recipes but there is something for everyone in here. Thoughts for the author? Congratulations on your release! I received a copy from the publisher for an honest opinion. Thanks so much for allowing me a peek.

    Thank you Callisto Publisher's Club and Rockridge Press for this free book! The following review contains my honest opinions. As a second disclaimer: I am not Keto, nor do I have any intention of living the full Keto lifestyle. The first chapter is a very basic introduction to Keto. I, personally, felt this introduction could have been a little more comprehensive. For instance, there is no explanation for "fat bombs" at all throughout this book, but there are various fat bomb recipes listed. Sever Thank you Callisto Publisher's Club and Rockridge Press for this free book! The following review contains my honest opinions. As a second disclaimer: I am not Keto, nor do I have any intention of living the full Keto lifestyle. The first chapter is a very basic introduction to Keto. I, personally, felt this introduction could have been a little more comprehensive. For instance, there is no explanation for "fat bombs" at all throughout this book, but there are various fat bomb recipes listed. Several of the recipes listed are clearly based on Southern comfort foods and even the Keto-versions listed here sound delicious. That being said, I personally, do not enjoy the label "Fauxtatos", just call it what it is: "Mashed Turnips". When I read through a cookbook, I am very interested to read the introductory chapter(s) and the explanatory paragraph at the beginning of each recipe. The explanatory paragraphs featured throughout this cookbook felt repetitive. The images throughout the book do depict delectable food and some of the images are labeled, but I wish there were more photos associated with the corresponding recipes. There is basically one photo per section; also I felt the same foods were depicted numerous times (on the cover, at the beginning of the book, and at the beginning of the chapters), so I believe there is room for more variety in the photos. Overall, this cookbook is probably best suited for someone already living the full Keto lifestyle and looking for inspiration, not for someone "keto-curious" or just starting the Keto lifestyle journey.

I was apprehensive when trying out some of these recipes, but was pleased with everyone I tried out. They where delicious and greatly helped me in my Keto diet journey and made the transition much more efficent. If your looking for familer recipes with a healthy spin to them then this might just be the cookbook for you.

    Great recipes and a good way to satiate my tastebuds from Keto burnout. The only reason I give it 4 stars is due to the lack.of photos.

    My bookshelf is loaded with cookbooks featuring Southern foods. Despite being a native Minnesotan, there's just something wonderful about Southern comfort food! So, when I saw The Southern Keto Cookbook by Emilie Bailey, I knew I had to add it to my collection. The fact that the recipes are Keto was just a bonus, since that's not part of our eating plan. The author, on the other hand, is a staunch observer of the keto diet, and the recipes included in the book have been developed by her, and, she My bookshelf is loaded with cookbooks featuring Southern foods. Despite being a native Minnesotan, there's just something wonderful about Southern comfort food! So, when I saw The Southern Keto Cookbook by Emilie Bailey, I knew I had to add it to my collection. The fact that the recipes are Keto was just a bonus, since that's not part of our eating plan. The author, on the other hand, is a staunch observer of the keto diet, and the recipes included in the book have been developed by her, and, she says, have helped her correct several health concerns. Like a lot of specialty cookbooks, the author isn't a professional chef. Nor is she a health care provider or nutritional expert. The first section of The Southern Keto Cookbook contains a brief overview of what the keto diet is, the purported benefits and some tips on how to maintain the keto lifestyle. This section is clear is slim, and if I were to decide to follow this very specific diet, I'd probably find additional sources for a more thorough and physiological/biochemical explanation. After reading through the informational front piece and all the recipes, I picked one recipes from each of the Breakfast, Brunch and Breads; Appetizers and Snacks; Salads, Sides and Soups; Vegetarian Mains; Fish and Seafood; Poultry; Beef and Pork; Desserts, Fat Bombs and Frozen Drinks. And let me tell you, choosing was a challenge! There are so many terrific sounding recipes. The recipes I ran thru my informal test kitchen - and tried out on my husband - include: Chicken Brunch Pie with Cheddar Pecan Crust Classic Southern Pimiento Cheese Southern Fried Cabbage Roasted Squash and Tomato Pie Sheet Pan Salmon with Lemon Green Beans Southern Oven-Fried Chicken Stuffed Cornbread Casserole Fluffy Peanut Butter Pie Can you say tried and true Southern Comfort food! Each of the recipes includes compliance with dietary preferences like egg-free, gluten-free and vegetarian. It also lays out how many servings, and timings - the last is a must-have for me when I'm looking through recipes. Following a brief and personal description, is the list of ingredients and then instructions. The instructions for the recipes I tried were all clear, well organized and easy to follow. Finally, each recipe ends with an allergen tip, and the standard nutritional information. Because The Southern Keto Cookbook is - as the name implies - a collection of Keto-compliant recipes, there were a number of ingredient choices I was unfamiliar with and needed to source - not an easy chore when you live 30-miles from the nearest big grocery store. My small town market doesn't carry any monk fruit/erythritol blend, for example, however, my guess is if you're already living Keto, the ingredients are already in your cabinet. Of the eight recipes I made, seven of them will likely turn up on a future menu. The exception was the pimento cheese. Pimento cheese is one of those things that seems so simple, but has been tweaked across generations until each family has a favorite taste profile. My husband and I agreed well stick with what we know on this one. Hands down, my favorite recipe was the fried chicken. Southern fried chicken is sort of my nemesis. Ive probably tried a dozen or more recipes and countless hand-me-down tips for making that crunchy, earthy crust that defines Southern fried chicken. This recipe nailed it! Spoiler alert - maybe it was the port rinds? I have no plans to change to a veto diet anytime soon, however, I do have plans to cook my way through The Southern Keto Cookbook, one gloriously Southern recipe at a time. If you're brand-spanking new to the keto lifestyle, I'd suggest picking up a book with more details on the how and why of the food choices and combination. I'd also suggest a talk with your primary care physician. On the other hand, if you're already practicing this lifestyle and are looking to add variety - specifically yummy Southern comfort food - to your table, The Southern Keto Cookbook is a fabulous choice. Also, if you're like me and just like trying new recipes, you'll find plenty to love within the pages of this book. This review is based on an advance copy read.
