Food Bloggers ♥ C&H® Light!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.
Yolanda Machado of Los Angeles, who blogs as Sassy Mama in LA, had a personal reason for embracing C&H® Light. “I come from a family of sugar watchers,” she writes. “My grandfather was diabetic, my grandma was/is always watching her weight and now my mom is watching for pre-diabetes.” Yolanda is careful about her sugar intake, too, so she was thrilled that C&H® Light has only half the calories of sugar. She used it to create a No-Bake Nutella Banana Cheesecake that pleased everyone in her family—including “my sugar-addicted man.”
Orange County resident Valerie Mitchell has published her blog, Mama Likes to Cook, since 2008. “I’m not a professional,” she writes, “but thoroughly enjoy cooking and sharing meals with my family and friends.” It helps, she adds, that her family is “adventurous—always happy to try new foods.” Valerie says using C&H® Light was “really easy—it was just a matter of using half as much” sugar-stevia blend as sugar. She used C&H® Light and organic dried blueberries to create her Blueberry Shortbread Cookies, “a good choice for when you’re short on time or when you have kids who want to help.” “No one who tried the cookies could tell that I had used a light substitute,” she told us. “They liked the flavor and texture and didn’t notice an aftertaste like you get with artificial sugar substitutes.”
Rachael Hustings of Corona, California, used C&H® Light to slim down a classic sugar-intensive recipe. Her Fuji Light Cranberry Sauce has just one cup of C&H® Light instead of two cups of pure sugar, cutting the calorie count from 1,548 to 480. Rachael, who writes about “bringing world flavors to the family dinner table” on her blog, La Fuji Mama, says the sauce is “a snap to make” and “perfect for whipping up ahead of time and keeping in an airtight container in the refrigerator.” And don’t limit cranberry sauce to Thanksgiving, Rachael writes. She suggests spreading it on a toasted bagel, spooning it over cheesecake, or even serving it with boiled potatoes!
