As I was making yet another fantastic recipe from my cookbook I felt compelled to give a shout out to you...I could not do it in your corner because I guess I have no priviledges there
I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my very full heart ..
you are the major inspiration in the low carb world for me!
and even though I am married I just want to say...
I have a huge woman crush on you lady!
Many years ago when I joined my first low carb board and the low carb world ..I found this site and actually posted the link on another diet board! almost got myself banned because I did not realize there was a forum board here as well I was so focused on the great recipe section...
You really helped me in my desire to eat a very well balanced diet that utilized all the fresh foods my heart desired ..I love Korean food you showed me low carb Korean ..I love curries ..your recipes showed me how to do my curries...I love dessert ...I get desserts of all types!!! On and on ..no cutting out things I loved or avoiding things ..just good eating!
I hate deprivation would shrivel up and fade away from anything that told me "no" to what I love... boredome would win and I would not loose! ...you gave me all all I could ask for especially to get started..in easy format and with recipes I could understand and modify to what I have on hand...
I have your books I have eaten your food in person ..held dinner parties based on your menus ...
all in all you are a shining example in life of what low carb eating should be! A diet based on variety and pleasure with the bounty we have in this world ... Your food is good food ..food we can dine on not just eat.
I have always felt eating a wide variety of fresh foods is what makes a person healthy and sane ..no radical dieting just common sense
so I hope you are out there and feel my gratitude for all you have done
and for anyone on this board who has NOT tried her recipes or read her cookbooks ..wow you are totally missing out ..this woman to me exemplifies the wonderful diversity of cooking and eating in the Pacific Northwest
please do try her recipes
you will find such joy in eating/living a low carb life I promise
how could you not?
thank you so much Karen
anyone else here a huge fan of Karen's please chime in
