‘Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook’

By Peter H. Gott, M.D. (Grand Central Publishing, $14.99)

Dr. Gott’s prior best-seller, “The No Flour, No Sugar Diet,” helped people throughout the country lose weight while enjoying the foods they love. In his new book, the nationally syndicated columnist presents 200 new recipes that eliminate both flour and sugar. Best of all, none require either calorie or gram counting. Though this collection means no bread, bagels, cookies or cakes, it does include lean meats, potatoes, rice, vegetables, low-fat dairy products and fruits. With categories for Breakfast, Soups, Snacks, Entrees and Desserts, these dishes make maintaining a diet easy for all.

With the pitch-perfect photography of Scott Dorrance, this cookbook is an absolute joy. Of special note are recipes for Hope Farm’s Corn and Cheese Chowder, Lamb Loin Chops drenched in a melt-in-your-mouth whipped garlic mustard, and an Apple Crumb Pie with a crème fraiche filling reminiscent of a crème brûlée.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
