As part of Sugar Free September, I was delighted to be invited to come up with a sugar free, healthy bake. My bakes always are sugar free, but this time, I was excited to try baking with Xylitol. Xylitol is a great option, being a naturally sourced sweetener, found in many fruits, vegetables, and even… Continue reading Lemon Mint drizzle muffins
Summertime. It’s really here. No sign of rain for such a long time, and our lawn has the scorch marks to prove it.
