One of the comments I hear from people when I tell them that I use stevia as a sweetener is, “Ewwww, I hate stevia! I tried it once, but I just couldn’t use it. It tasted so bitter (or metallic, or awful, or [insert distasteful adjective here]). For me, it’s been so long now that […]

NuNaturals Stevia Giveaway!

[Peppermint Nanaimo Bars coming up next time! Sweetened with NuNaturals Peppermint Stevia.] If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time at all, you know that stevia is my go-to sweetener (yes, I use xylitol, and yes, I use coconut sugar/nectar, but for most of a candida diet, stevia still trumps them all).

SOS Stevia: The Roundup

Thanks to everyone who submitted a stevia-based recipe for February’s SOS Kitchen Challenge! As always, we received a stellar collection of recipes.

SOS Stevia: Crunchy Green Salad

Nobody loves dessert more than I do (well, except maybe in New Zealand, where they eat more ice cream per capita than anywhere else in the world. . . as I’ve said before, I really must move to the antipodes).  I’ve been known to eat dessert for breakfast, for snacks, for lunch, or for dinner.  I’ve […]

All About Stevia*

* with apologies to Bradley Cooper and Sandra Bullock (though from what I hear about the movie, they should be apologizing to us). [Stevia-sweetened giant baked apple pancake] How did it get to be Sunday already, and five days since my last post?  Well, I haven’t been lounging around watching soap operas and eating bon-bons, […]

It’s the Berries: Stevia-Sweetened, Gluten Free Blueberry-Lemon Muffins

I know; who says things like, “It’s the berries” any more? Okay, well, I admit that I do.  I also say “take umbrage” (and said it even before I knew the Harry Potter connection), “just chillaxin’” and, sometimes, “the cat’s pyjamas” (but only when I feel like teasing The Girls). But honestly, this recent revision in my […]
