Sugar Cookies Diabetic Snacker Recipes Tips Ideals

I didn't know there was a national sugar cookie day but I just read that there is! It's July 9th, I'll be sure and make me some kind of diabetic recipe for sugar cookies!

Sugar free sugar cookies sounds a little strange doesn't it? How about splenda cookies instead? I think that sounds
a bit more appealing. Splenda is one of my favorite
kitchen secret weapons for combatting diabetes. I use
it all the time for snacks,desserts and anywhere that
I use sugar.

I am now also buying the kroger brand of splenda and it
is also good tasting with no aftertaste. I love being
able to bake with the help of these new innovative products.
Geez, I should have been a spokesperson for Splenda!

Too bad I never even got a review with them, but as long
as I know it works I guess that is all that counts. Happy baking
to you! What is your favorite cookie? I'd love to see your comments.

Diabetic Snacker Better Burgers can be made with these tips for cooking

Tonight we tried something new with our burgers. We always use the george foreman grill to prepare them. This time we had a cookie sheet ready with toasted buns and cheese for them. We wrapped each sandwich in foil and put them in a 300 degree oven for about 10 minutes. They were much better than usual. The cheese was warm and melted, the burgers were much more juicy and the buns were still warm and soft. Very good sandwiches. We were going for a more "restaurant" taste and that's what we wound up with so I guess it was a success.

Diabetic Ice Cream Sandwiches Cool Creamy Chocolate Treats

I do this to make my own little cookie sandwiches. I take 2 low sugar or no sugar cookies and add a tbsp. of fat free cool whip to them to make sandwiches. Then I wrap in waxed paper & pop in a large ziploc freezer bag. They are very good! I like the Murray's sugar free shortbread cookies found at Walmart the best.
Disclaimer Policy

For some reason readers find this blog & think I'm only writing it for

the money.

I just want to clarify that I do understand that because you don't really

know me. Rest assured I'm
trying to help others with any information that I post. As you get to know

me you'll come to realize that indeed I'm not just in it for the money that

can be made. I really enjoy blogging about this & if you'll check my

archives you'll find tons of all free information you can use.

Having said that; I do ‘get’ things out of this blog including money and

want to declare it up front in the hope that it might give you a more

complete picture of my motivations from maintaining
this blog.

Just so I'm honest about it;
Here's what I receive from this blog:

Money=I do make a little money from this blog. Between the google adsense

program, the click bank program and the amazon affiliates network program.

There are at times even links from linkshare and shareasale. I don't believe

I'm harming anyone by using my affiliate links as long as I'm telling you

about something useful anyway. Believe when I say there are usually 5 days

in a row all the time that I don't have any income from adsense so believe

me it's not like the stories you've heard before.

And the affiliate links are there but that doesn't mean someone uses them

all the time. It's a hit or miss situation. Sometimes there's a lead but

most times no such luck.

I don't do sponsored posts. Meaning you pay me to write something you say.

That's never going to happen. I will do a product review but I honestly give

my true opinion and will continue to do. No one will ever pay me outright

money to say their product is good. That's just how I am. If I like

something I'll tell you but you can't buy my opinion. I really like it

better when I don't like something because I love telling that even more.

While I do hope to increase my profile portfolio by the use of my blogs I am

not an expert in the field. I'm just a gal with an opinion who cares in

sharing with others information she has learned along the way.

I would love to carve out anich for myself on this topic. I'm in the process

of writing a book and everything I post on my blog will be included in it

plus many other goodies.

I really do like to help other people whenever I can and since I'm not rich

this blog is my way of helping other's. I share my information, my knowledge

with anyone who cares to listen, by reading my blogs. I get enjoyment out of


Yes, I do like to link sometimes to my other blogs to help their page rank

if possible. But, I only do it sparingly and when it's pertaining to the

task at hand.

What does this blog cost me to run?

I want to paint a realistic picture in order that readers make an informed

decision of whether blogging for a living is something that they want to

pursue themselves.

Time is the major factor in what this blog costs. It takes a lot of time,

more than you might think.
I try to write good lengthy informative posts everytime I write. I devote a

lot of online time to researching my topics, my tips and my suggestions.

I respond to all emails. Many readers have questions and I'm only happy to

answer them. I usually also turn those into a post sometime down the road.

These questions do take time as I don't want to give just the first thing

that pops into my head I want it to be well thought out and organized
so you can understand exactly what I mean.

I love comments on all my blogs and I do my best to make sure I reply to

them as soon as I can. I have many blogs covering a wide array of topics

some are more popular than others. But, I reply and answer comments all the

time as if I only have one blog. The one you are asking about.

I do put many hours into my blogging activites. While I love it I do

understand how energy draining it can sometimes be to be on the computer all

the time as I usually am.

I don't believe in copying other's work and I don't think anyone should.

It's fine to read other's work and then write your own say on it but don't

ever copy word for word anyone. It's just bad politics.

If you ever disagree with a point I've made you are free to post it in the

comments section or email me using the contact us form if you'd like. Do

remember though what you write online will be readable forever. Yeah,

forever can be a very long time. So write what you want to convey in a

normal non violent nature and we will all get along better.

I don't want to be contacted by phone or instant messaging which is why I

never post any of that information on any of my blogs. I don't own and never

will own a cell phone so don't bother trying to contact me in that way.

Now, I hope this page I've written has helped you to understand some of the

behind the scenes happenings of making a blog work. I love it and even

though I've only been blogging since mid 2008 it feels like this is what I

should have been doing my whole life! While it's not the highest paying job

I've ever had it is to me the most rewarding in many other ways. Where else

could I help other people without even leaving the house?

Sure sometimes it can be tiring and boring even tedious, but then someone

will ask a great question again and I'm right back in the arena looking for

the answer to help a fellow reader out.

Microwave Brownies Recipe Lower Fat Options Diabetic Snacker

Today I made me this treat:

4 tbsp brownie mix
2 tbsp water
stir in microwave safe bowl

Microwave 1 minute on high

When done let stand 2 minutes
Add 2 tbsp fat free cool whip topping

It's very good. I am wondering though;

the brownie mix says a serving size is 1/20 of the package so I wonder if 4 tbsp is considered one serving size or maybe i need to start halving mine as I am diabetic? Anyone know? I'll test my blood sugar in 2 hours and see if this amount is going to be okay for me or not. By the way, it was delicious! I highly recomend it. I really could tell the difference between this and using the real version with oil & eggs added.

Diabetic Snacker Make your own Warm Delights Brownies Cake Mixes Not diabetic but treats

I've just found that I can make my own yummy goodness of those betty crocker warm delights. Which are pretty good but these are better and much cheaper.
My microwave is 1400 watts of power so if yours is a lower wattage adjust your cooking time accordingly.


Hot Fudgy Warm Delights At Home

To a small microwave bowl add:

4 tbsp brownie mix
2 tbsp water
microwave on high for 1 min.

After it comes out I add 1 tbsp of smucker's sugar free hot fudge ice cream topping on. Let the cake sit for 2 minutes and you will have heaven!
Yummo! as Rachael Ray would say

Here's another one:

Basic Warm Delight From A Cake Mix

To a small microwave bowl

1/3 cup any cake mix
4 tbsp milk 2%
microwave 2 minutes
let stand and then enjoy!

Want another one I love?

Orange Cake Delight

To a small microwave bowl

4 tbsp white cake mix
2 tbsp orange juice (I used fresh squeezed for no sugar)
microwave on high 1 minute
let stand 2 minutes while you peel your orange up and put it in on top of your cooling cake. It's very nice and refreshing!

Another one I love:

Chocolate Chip Warm Delights

To a small microwave bowl

3 tbsp betty crocker chocolate chip cookie mix
2 tbsp water
1 tsp any sugar free pancake syrup
microwave 2 minutes, let stand 2 minutes and enjoy!

If you want to make the whole cake mix up at once try this:

Whole Cake Goodness Basic Recipe

To a large bowl blend together:

1 cake mix any type
1 can of soda any you like

Pour in a sprayed with (butter cooking spray) nonstick cake pan 9x13,
and bake until done usually 20-25 minutes depending on your cake mix instructions. You'll have a nice moist dessert without all the extra calories of the oil or the eggs! Who knew it could be so simple?
Vary this basic recipe to make hundreds of your own.

Feel free to post your newest creations here I'd appreciate it as I want to try them all! Being a diabetic this is going to help me a lot as I can have a small portion of these more often than the old fashioned way of making them. And of course I love trying out new flavors all the time.
