Why? Splenda doesn't taste anything like medicine. It tastes like sugar.



Oh, a spoon full of Splenda helps the medicine go down, the medicine go dow-own, the medicine go down

I think that you're talking to someone from the old school.

Even if I use just a little of that stuf, it tastes like medicine, so why would I want to COOK or BAKE with it?

I greatly prefer Splenda to sugar. After years on Atkins I have almost completely lost my taste for really sweet stuff. It just seems like I can feel the sugar "grit" on my teeth, and it's just too sweet.

As soon as I find the time I'm planning to make a cheesecake, substituting Splenda for the sugar.

I can't go on that diet because it orders you to eliminate all starch and sugar, and since I'm a diabetic, I need some starch and sugar in the body to keep from getting sick and going into a hypoglysemic attack.

Not too much, but enough so that my glucose level is not deprived of it all.

However, I DO have some Domino De-Lite, which is like Splenda. That I use now and then, but not in baking. And have you forgotten that I'm on a tight shoestring budget, so I can't even afford to buy that stuff now.

I'm so broke that I can't even pay attention!

I've been drinking 1% milk for a while now. The switch back over to it was kind of rough, but I'm well use to it now. I mistakingly bought some SKIM milk and had to use it. In cereal, it looks almost like WATER!! YUCK!!!! I'm happily drinking 1% again! Diet soda as well.

Lost another 11 lbs though.

My father-in-law is diabetic & I have made several Splenda cheescakes. They look good & taste good & I don't particularly care for Splenda, Nutrasweet, Equal, etc. I do substitite graham crackers in the crust with ground almonds which adds a nutty flavor to the cheesecake. Check out the Splenda website, they've got lots of great recipes.
