When it comes to sweeteners, I personally like to use baking stevia and stevia packets. However, all of these recipes call for a sweetener that measures like sugar, which includes any sweetener that can be measured the same as sugar, or you could use sugar if you prefer.
If you prefer to use stevia or another sweetener, you will have to alter the amount based on the conversion table below, or according to your desired taste. This can take some experimenting, but once you get a feel for baking with different sweeteners, it is very simple to know how much to use. To get you started, I have provided a simple conversion table that works with stevia.
Please also note, that the amounts listed below may vary based on the brand of stevia you are using. The following chart pertains to NuNaturals stevia, which is the brand I personally recommend. If you are using baking stevia, simply use 1/2 of the sugar the recipe calls for.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I know I sure did, as it is one of my very favorite holidays! What could be better than time spent with family, giving thanks to the Lord for all the good things He has done, all while cooking and enjoying great food!?!
I thought I would share a quick recap on my Thanksgiving with all of you! We spent the day at my moms house cooking up a storm and enjoying time together! My Aunt Lorrie and I both love to cook, so we were preparing the food while everyone else spent time talking and watching the game.
Here is a glimpse at the final product! Most of it was Dashing Dish recipes of course! :) We had turkey, sweet potato casserole, roasted vegetables, stuffing, mashed cauliflower, cranberry sauce, baked mac & cheese, corn muffins, and gravy!
As great as the food always is though, the best part of the day was being with family!
For dessert I made my pumpkin gingerbread trifle, always a crowd pleaser, and one of my faves!
After the meal we all talked about what we were thankful for, which is always such a special time! Then we relaxed, played games, and enjoyed each others company! Now, time to prepare for Christmas! I can’t believe it is already less than 3 weeks away! I hope you are all enjoying this special time of year as we reflect on God’s great love for us, that He sent His only Son, so we could be called His children!
