The Holidays! Love em! The Baking! Love it! What to do now?
The hardest thing I have found to manage is not the sugar, it is the starches. There are many healthy sugar substitutes out there and I have a couple of favorites. For baking, I buy Stevia…
I am a full time IT employee for a large data storage company who loves to cook for her family and entertain guests - especially when it involves wine! I have recently encountered a few medical problems that required a change in the foods I eat and so I am now trying a do-over on many of my favorite recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian! Pasta, gravy, meatballs, manicotti, lasagne...
I also love cooking mexican, cajun and indian foods. Spicy is good....! :)
I love to bake as well and would do it every day if it were healthy. Sigh..........
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday baking is a big one. Not sure how we will manage that this year with the sugar free thing going on! We also have a lot of fun at Thanksgiving. My son's birthday is very close to Thanksgiving each year so after Thanksgiving we make a big pot of Jambalaya with the leftovers. Everyone looks forward to this tradition!
My cooking triumphs
Sugar free flourless chocolate cake!! WOW!
Homemade pizza - the best!
Cinnamon Buns to die for! (I can't eat these anymore... :(
Homemade pasta and gravy
My cooking tragedies
