Chocolate Strawberry Cake Roll Blog Post

ChocolateStrawberryCakeRoll_Web

I will be the first to admit that this is something of a special occasion cake. It’s a bit tricky to make and takes a gentle hand at times, but you shouldn’t let that stop you. Because this cake roll is worth all the time and effort it takes to make. Tender chocolate sponge cake, creamy strawberry cheesecake filling, all drizzled with rich chocolate ganache. It looks like a million bucks and it tastes like it too. Cake rolls are ……[Continue Reading]

Tagalongs and Avoiding Temptations

Tagalongs_ForWeb

If you’ve recently gone low carb or sugar-free, chances are you fear Girl Scout Cookie season like no other. Oh sure, they look all sweet and innocent, in their little brown and green uniforms. They might even be wearing pigtails and have plenty of badges that attest to what great kids they are. But you know that behind that sweet smile lurks a dark secret. The whole thing is just a ruse to get you to buy the very thing ……[Continue Reading]

Toffee & Dark Chocolate Scones

I’ve loved scones ever since I was a little girl. I love everything they are and everything represent, from the elegant miniature tea scones of the English to the rustic downhome feel of the hearty Scottish oatmeal scones. I really haven’t ever met a scone I didn’t like. This may have something to do with my overall Anglophilia and my obsession with British novels of all classes. In fact, I do believe it was Enid Blyton and her children’s series, ……[Continue Reading]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

What is it that is so enticing about raw cookie dough? There is such guilty pleasure in sneaking little bits of the dough in between shaping the cookies and setting them on the pan. You know you shouldn’t do it, not only because you’re intaking extra carbs, but because it’s totally and completely raw. It’s risky, but you can’t help yourself. It’s just too good, all sweet and soft and…raw. Sometimes it’s almost better than the cookies themselves. Maybe it’s ……[Continue Reading]

Here’s to Valentines Day!

February.
Valentines Day.

The month I’ve always loved as, to me, the arrival of February means spring is right around the corner! (What can I say? I’m an optimist.)

The second one? The “official day of romantic love” across our great United States? I was not so much a fan until fairly recently….[Continue Reading]

Mousse with Crème Anglaise

Chocolate Mousse with Creme Anglais 3

It’s hard to capture all the wonderful things that happened in 2012.  It was our first full year of really starting to put ourselves out there and introduce Swerve Sweetener.  I mean after all, we’ve been around since 2001… it was about time! Outside of finally taking that sweet leap of faith, the one thing that truly warms my heart, are the friendships we made in 2012. Finding those people that may have similar interests, so your paths cross because ……[Continue Reading]

Happy Holidays from New Orleans

Festive Sweetie

We’ve rolled out the red carpet, just for you this holiday season! After many months of the Swerve Team putting our little heads together – we’re finally here…………………………………………. Welcome to the all-new SwerveSweetener.com. Yes, it’s the wee hours of the morning right now and we have visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads (not sure if it’s the midnight oil or possibly the eggnog) but we’re excited, invigorated, ecstatic, beside ourselves and ready for you to take a test ……[Continue Reading]

I made something this weekend; I’m just not sure what is.

While we were celebrating Swerve Breakfast Month, I decided to expand my repertoire and experiment with homemade pop tarts. It seemed like a no-brainer. A convenient, potentially healthy breakfast treat, beloved by adults and kids around the world that, in their natural state are highly unhealthy. Perfect. I started with the delicious looking recipe posted on Smitten Kitchen – http://smittenkitchen.com/2010/04/homemade-pop-tarts/ – which seemed easy and a perfect starting point for a Swerve makeover. So, (spoiler alert) long story short, they ……[Continue Reading]

Sweet tidings from the Swerve Test Kitchen and beyond

Hiya, Sweeties! I thought it was time to dust the flour out of my hair and fill you in on some happenings in the Swerve Test Kitchen and beyond. Lately, we’ve been on the road a lot sharing the sweetness with lots of new friends. It’s funny; when we’re up to our eyeballs in Swerve (almost literally) we sometimes forget just how remarkable it is. When we’re explaining Swerve to someone that hasn’t come across it before, we get excited ……[Continue Reading]

Breakfast in the Swerve Kitchen

I’ve been having so much fun with Swerve Breakfast Month! There are so many recipes and ideas out there and most breakfast foods are easy to adapt to sugar-free. Not only that, it’s been the perfect excuse to enjoy breakfast for dinner several nights a week! Sadly, while I wish I had the time to make a gourmet breakfast each day, I’m also a fan of hitting the snooze button a few more times than necessary. I bought myself a ……[Continue Reading]
