Jennifer are you contemplating a gluten free, low carb cookbook in the near future? Perhaps you still need more experimentation prior??

There should be a big gluten-free, low-carb cookbook out before American Thanksgiving this year. It is going to be an incredible cookbook - something really different too, but that is all I am saying. :)
