I enjoy a sugar-free lifestyle, but it's difficult to find good dessert recipes without using artificial sweeteners, honey, or molasses. Even the title of this book let me know it would be perfect for me. The recipes are all very easy to make, and so far everything has come out delicious. There are a few ingredients called for that you might not have in your pantry already, but they aren't difficult to find or expensive. These do take a little more time to prepare than a similar product made with an artificial sweetener, but I think it's totally worth it... and you don't get that nasty aftertaste!

Janet Warrington brings a fresh test to dessert. Because she doesn't use sugar or sweetners her dishes taste real and not powered by the sheer sweetness that many dessert cookbooks are loaded with today. She uses a lot of ideas and ingredients that my grandmother uses in making her delicious. It's great to finally have a cookbook of desserts that aims at taste and comfort rather than sugar power.

This book is exactly as it says, sweet and natural. For someone who cannot eat sugar and wants to stay away from artifical sweetners it was great to find recipes that still offered a chance at some beautiful desserts!

Format: Paperback
This recipe book is a strange & unique collection of recipes from the Great Depression (which my grandmother used to make), newer desserts, and sweets of all types. But the author shows you how to make it all without sugar.

It was written in the early 90's, and the author (almost prophetically) points out that nutrasweet and the other old sweeteners don't taste great, but also pose potential health problems.

She has some rather complex ways of sweetening desserts, just like my grandmother used to do when they couldn't afford sugar (i.e., boiling raisins in milk, blending up apples and prunes to your dish, etc).

She has got some really good sugar substitute ideas. Feel free to follow these recipes to the "T" if you're yearning for the tastes and smells of nostalgia. *HOWEVER*...many of these recipes work just as well with a cup of Splenda, or a few drops of Stevia.

Make them the old fashioned way, or do short cuts with new sweeteners (like we do). As an added bonus, the Splenda or Stevia are zero carb and zero GI, so even lower carb than many of the authors solutions. Either way, these deserts fit a variety of lifestyles, whether you're body can't handle too much sugar (diabetics, etc), whether you're cutting sugar for health reasons, or if you are just looking to lose or maintain a healthy weight.

Enjoy!

It is a really interesting book. I tried the sweet milk and it worked great. I would recommend this book for someone who is cooking for a diabetic. I am borderline and my husband is not a willing participant in the sugar free lifestyle:(
