What do you think of Sugar-Stevia blend from C&H company?

Today, I baked mini gluten free zuchinni muffins. Yum! it is truely delicious compares to regular flour zuchinni muffins. :lol: Which I dont really miss at all.... :P

plus I used new kind of sugar that is blended with stevia. oh my gosh very little of sugar-stevia blend go very long way! :o

recipe called for half cup of sugar. bag of blend said that one cup of regular sugar is equal to half cup of sugar and stevia blend. so i only used 1/4 cup of sugar-stevia blend. It is just tasty and very natural plus half in calories!!! wow, I am pretty impressed with that product. :D

however, now next step are baking mini chocolate tollhouse gluten free cookie bites that include sugar-stevia blend. I will see how it go for cookies. i will update my post. :)

mini zuchinni muffins are very addictive. It made me wanna to polish one batch off haha but thankfully that I add mittled flaxseeds to make it more fulling and safistying plus more fiber and amino acids like omegas-3. Haha! :P

i guess i am becoming a baker in speciality within time. :D

Prickly, I will eventually try pinterest recipes when i return from florida in two weeks. I am jsut try to finish my veggies off before I leave so that way i dont come back to moldy and rotten veggies.

zuchinni was one of veggies that i needed to used up fast cuz i bought bit too many. (it was on sale)

only veggies i have left are carrots, baby boy choy, green peppers, sweet peppers, and onions. so I am thinking about whip them up in big stir fry but this time i will serve over rice with chicken.

Chocolate chip bites were success. My family members dont really like it too much. they said it is not same as nestle tollhouse chip recipe at all. :blink:

I told them that its prehap bit different since sugar and flour are different from regular flour and sugar.

i dont know what to make it taste great as nestle tollhouse chocolate chip cookies... :huh:

oh well, i think it taste good to me! :P Just that I added MINIS chocolate chips since it is chocolate chip bite-size rather than regular chocolate chip cookies.

Would that make it any difference in taste?

oh well I just prehap need to change butter since I used margarine instead of real butter... it would make it any difference?

Both the chips and the butter will change the flavor and texture.

I'd take down the butter a bit when converting. gluten-free recipes tend to need less - 1/4 to 1/3 less?

And I think the Nestl

yes,

you are correct.

i am suspesting it is butter and size of chips do affect the taste and dont really call up to best tasting cookies.

I guess i should just abide by the recipe strictly without really tweaking and substitusing etc.

Some recipes just need to be tested a bit? Do you keep notes about the results? I found it best to do that so I could tweek the recipe a bit as needed the next time I try it.

I'm happy to see you're baking. Are you feeling better?

Your zucchini muffins sound yummy! I'll bet your cookies were good too, just a bit different than Toll house? If you family doesn't like them...more for you! LOL ;)

Notebooks are great. I've started two-one for holidays and one for gluten-free experiments. I leave 2-3 pages between each new experiment so I can add notes as I go.

thank you Bubba's mom and prickly for the suggestions!

I never thought of keeping the notebook to record that i did already tried tweaked recipes and take note of what does work and what does not work that way i dont make mistake again!

What a great idea!

Bubba's mom, oh yes I do see improvement in my energy level and no issues with gas and BM lately. I just dont feel so sleepy and so drained so much.

I just started mulitvitamins and probotics but its too early to say if probotics are needed. I could tell that my energy soared when i started mulitvitamins. I feel like i am kid again! I do pray that it will last long time if i keep up with mulitvitamins and cut gluten out that I am not at borderline prediabetic level anymore after get disagnosed with PCOS and had bloodwork drawed out and doc said i am at edge of getting diabetic disease unless i do something about it. :huh:

I am already on low carb diet but found that gluten can cause more issue in me so i cut bread and pasta out and its so much better.

sorry if i am rambling.... I am just saying that its best for my health's sake. :)

    • Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH.  It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck).  It comes and goes over the years which has thrown me a little, but from what I can tell it can happen with DH? Anyways I went to an allergist, he was a jerk and told me it was not an allergy and to get a biopsy (which was done ten years ago when it first happened, but okay).  Me being at my wits end I called up a local dermatologist and got an appt for a biopsy.  I went in armed and ready with the info I have read here about the correct biopsy etc.  Well of course the dermatologist wouldn't give me the time of day Would not listen to the past history of the rash or look at photos, was in and out within five minutes and insisted on a scratch biopsy instead of a punch biopsy.  She simply said she would be highly surprised if it was DH.  I try to respect doctors so I pushed but I did not push hard enough.  She did the scratch biopsy against my recommendations.  So that brings us to today when I received a message that the biopsy showed an allergy and that they could either give me an order of prednisone or refer me to an allergist.  Now if you remember my local allergist sent me away and said it wasn't an allergy.  I am so done and I refuse to just keep medicating myself, I need to find the root cause.   So I have a physical tomorrow night with my regular doctor and I am tempted to just insist on a punch biopsy next to the rash for a proper biopsy.  Couple questions for you guys though.  If a scratch biopsy came back as an allergy could that possibly lead to gluten allergy (I know it doesn't prove that, but could it mean it could be gluten?).  Should I keep pushing for a punch biopsy? I am planning to go gluten free after this appointment anyways but I keep eating it to try and get a proper diagnosis.  I feel I should get a proper diagnosis, one to keep me on track, one to make sure that is what it is and also I did try gluten free for 30 days before and it didn't seem to help the rash.  But from what I have read that could have been to short of a time.  I feel I need a proper diagnosis to help me stay with it and keep on the right path.   Lastly, the rash definitely went through stages and is at an end stage, still itches like crazy but isn't as bad looking as when it started.  Does it matter when you take the biopsy as long as there is a rash it will potentially show?  I hope all this makes sense.  I am tired of being told I am crazy from doctors.  If they could find the solution I wouldn't be looking myself.  I would be very happy to be proved wrong but so far that has not happened and I just want an answer! So tired of being itchy!! Thank you very much for your help and listening!!!
    • I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and have tried different meds but finally accepted I need the Zoloft and Xanax probably for life. I will say that most of our serotonin is in our stomachs and any time I switched meds or had to withdrawal my stomach issues were the worst. So please be careful with switching or stopping ( never cold turkey) any psychiatric medication. Also you could be sensitive to other grains. Gluten free bread does not like me. Also so far I have not found any one in the medical field that takes celiac seriously. I have been laughed at even and most don't have a clue what problems gluten does to us mentally and physically.
    • When does it matter if its gluten-free? ( likely is)  but she isn't eating it. She isn't 2 and put her fingers and paint brush in her mouth.  Are you or your son going to lick the glass?  Of course not.    Any paint can be be scraped off glass with a razor blade.  Some people use dry erase markers
    • Wow. I'm quite surprised that this is so highly heritable. I mean, I knew there was a genetic component, but most things I've read have said that it isn't very well understood and that other factors play a part.  This gives me a lot to think about.
    • The point is, celiac is mostly genetic, it can be dormant for years then come up. You can have it with no symptoms for years as it slowly eats away at your insides also. So you should have your kids eating gluten and get them tested. This way you know if they have active celiac. They should also be tested every year or so as there is a high chance they will get it.
