Baby Hunter Wilshire

Neil and Lora and everyone at Low Carb Luxury would like to congratulate Gil and Regina Wilshire on the birth of their baby, Hunter Withington Wilshire. Their little pride and joy was born August 18, 2004 at 3:56 AM, weighing in at 8 pounds, and 21" in length. What an adorable baby!

For those of you who don't know, Gil is the President and Chief Scientific Officer of the Carbohydrate Awareness Council who's lost over 100 pounds, and sits on the panel at Low Carb Luxury. Regina is Chief Operating Officer at CAC, and has lost over 80 pounds (pre-baby!) :) We wish them both all the best!

                                   And More Congratulations!

Our heartfelt congratulations also go out to Expert Foods' Mark Uhrmacher and his bride-to-be, Elizabeth Doughty on the occasion of their wedding, Saturday, September 4th at the Estherwood Mansion in Dobbs Ferry, NY. We know the couple well and wish them a lifetime of happiness and love.

Oh yes, and we've given Mark the month off from his writing duties here at Low Carb Luxury, so no "Insider" column this month. :)

Product Of The Month
Our product review team features a "Product Of The Month" in each issue of our magazine. These products are a group consensus of those we find to be the most innovative, healthy, tasty, and/or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

Low Carb Chef Dessert Mixes!

The Low Carb Chef Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix It's been awhile since we did any reviews for cookie mixes because we haven't seen any we've been impressed with in some time. However, we've recently found several that we like very much.

One line that falls into that category are the new mixes from
The Low Carb Chef. They have three varieties for the low carber that make very tasty, very "real" treats that make and bake with very little fuss.

First, there's the
Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix with a very "Toll-House" type consistency. You use your own fresh eggs and oil, and a little vanilla extract. The result is 18 nice sized cookies that make a treat you'll love with a cold glass of your favorite low carb milk.
The Low Carb Chef Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
Then there's the
Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix. Blend with the same fresh ingredients listed above; and we also added walnuts! The result is 9 large fudgy brownies with a decadent chewy crumb. You can add pecans or hazelnuts also. Or consider swirling Splenda sweetened cream cheese through the brownie mix in the pan for a unique look and taste.

And last (but not least since these were our favorite!) are the
Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies.

The Low Carb Chef Chewy Peanut Butter CookiesAdd 1/2 cup of peanut butter (we used Carb Options brand) along with oil, eggs, and vanilla and you get a peanut butter cookie any kid would love. We did the "criss-cross" fork pattern and added a sprinkle of Splenda to their tops.

All three mixes make totally yummy low carb treats and come out at 1 to 5 carbs per cookie or brownie depending on how you discount for sugar alcohols. They've kept their polyols to a minimum by sweetening with their "Chef's Blend," a mix of maltitol and sucralose.

You won't want to miss these! They're available from The Low Carb Dieter's Page. Order them and enjoy!
