    Hi Jak. That sounds delicious. All the things I like. Even though I'm not a diabetic, I'd like to try it.

      Sounds great. My sister is type 2 diabetic so I think I will try this on her and see if she likes it. It looks like something I would like for sure. Thanks

        This does sound good - I love the almond-poppyseed flavor. But, what the heck is Splenda? I'm guessing a sugar substitute. Am I right?

          You got it. It's one of the newest ones on the market. Never tried it but I gather it can be cooked with which beats Equal.

            I like Splenda way better than any other sugar substitute. It measures the same (1 c. splenda = 1 c. sugar) and the taste is very similar to sugar. It's a little spendy, so I mostly only use it in recipes that need to be cooked and still use the pink or blue stuff in tea, coffee, etc.

            They're starting to use it in diet drinks and such now too! Diet Rite Cola is made with it and for my $$ tastes MUCH better than either if the Big Guys' diet cola.

              Everyone has a cookbook -- why shouldn't we? (This coming from a guy who knows how to burn water) . My wife is a good cook, but she doesn't use recipes most of the time. So I won't be able to give recipes except for the ones I find in her cookbooks after I wipe the dust off of them. If you have...

              Mushroom Lasagna
              by DJ Dubovsky
              OK since I see there are some vegetarians onboard, I think this may do well here. We are not all vegetarians at our house but the taste is so good it doesn't matter. It's the only lasagna I make. It does make an awful lot but I usually cut it up and freeze it for individual meals.

              This is a recipe I was introduced to by a neighbor when I was pregnant. I had just eaten supper but as a kind gesture for his labor, I aggreed to a small bowl as a taste test.
              Well, 5 bowls later and bursting at the seams, I decided to take home the recipe. Which I did and made some the next...
