Book description
Whether you're planning for the slow seduction of a three-course meal or an imaginative way to lead up to the real main course, here are dozens of delicious recipes and creative tips for that perfect night in - and the morning after. In The Seduction Cookbook, author Diane Brown offers much more than romantic recipe secrets. She teaches how to heighten passion through appetizing anticipation, and shares tempting techniques for preparing and serving her creations.

Did you ever stop to wonder why you're able to find and buy commercially prepared low carbohydrate baking mixes, but it's impossible for you and I to bake low carb foods for ourselves in our own kitchens? The ingredients to which we typically have access and have been taught to use are the flours and sugars in the supermarket--none of which can be used if you're counting carbohydrates. And, we haven't been educated as to what flours we can use or how to use substitutions for the standard flours and sugars.

If you're one-stop shopping for great trimming, gift-giving, and cooking ideas, it's hard to do better than Christmas with Southern Living. Filled with glorious photos, excellent directions, and extensive recipes, the large, lush volume presents a bounty of ways to decorate, craft, and entertain in true Southern Living style. Elegant centerpieces feature pears and partridges, candles and kumquats. Chandeliers drip with ribbons, glass ornaments, and greenery. A clever mantel scarf disguises pockets to hold gifts and treats. Imaginative cookie houses mimic a barn or a country church. Soups and stews, cakes and chocolates are just the beginning when it comes to recipes; there are also full menus for a Mediterranean feast, a rustic cabin meal, ...
