My mother-in-law likes this cookbook author, JoAnna Lund, quite a bit. She uses a lot of sugar-free, fat-free soups, puddings, milk etc. For $3.99 plus another 15% off, I threw this book in the cart on my last visit to Ollie's, for balance. I wouldn't want to eat recipes like this all of the time but there are lighter and with all the diabetics in the family, the sugar-free dessert recipes might come in handy.
I'm late today. I sent my older son back to school. I'm not used to getting out and about so early. I have to stop staying up so late.
Question of the Day: Do you use many fat-free and/or sugar-free products (you know, things that aren't naturally fat or sugar free)? I really like Breyer's Carb Smart ice cream bars that I started eating when I had gestational diabetes. I drink sugar-free beverages and sometimes buy sugar-free pudding. I generally stay away from fat-free products and choose the lighter versions instead of completely fat-free.
