Happy Light Year!

Light Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Raise your hand if you started this year – every year? – with a resolution to cut calories. Keep your hand up if you’re already finding that resolution just a little bit hard to keep. Yes, we see a lot of hands. But don’t worry—you’re not alone. We’re all hard-wired to enjoy sweetness; and sweet treats, in moderation, aren’t a bad thing. The challenge is that “moderation” part, right?

Well, we have good news! Our newest product, C&H® Light Sugar & Stevia Blend, makes it easy to cut calories without sacrificing sweet taste. The secret: a special blend of pure cane granulated sugar plus stevia and natural flavorings. We love it for all kinds of cooking and baking, and we know you will, too.

Food Bloggers ♥ C&H® Light!

C&H Light
We’re not the only ones excited about our new C&H® Light Sugar & Stevia blend (see main story). The food-blogging community is also enthusiastic about this natural, reduced-calorie alternative to pure sugar!

As part of the product launch, we invited 50 bloggers to use C&H® Light in a new or old recipe. They responded with creativity and gusto—and generously permitted us to share their results. Here are two of their stories.

Lisa Basini
Baking’s as much a science as an art, which is why creating recipes for baked goods can be so challenging. A quarter-teaspoon of baking soda or a half-teaspoon? Fifty minutes at 350° or 40 minutes at 375°?

Fortunately for us at C&H® Sugar (and our sister company Domino® Sugar), we don’t have to guess—and neither do you. That’s because Lisa Basini, our talented recipe developer and tester, makes sure the recipes in our online recipe database will work as well in your kitchen as they do in ours.
