    I might have to add some of the diabetic recipes to the recipe forum here. I am really surprised at how good this stuff is. I've always been a pretty good cook so I've known how to prepare decent emals, but now that we HAVE to eat them, it's great to find recies that use ingredients I hadn't thought of putting together before.
    I was going to mention that myself. Also, sugar-free doesn't mean carb-free, and for diabetics, both Type 1 and Type 2, carbs are a major reason blood sugars will raise.

    Could have been a bad can maybe. I dunno, I used regular Campbells Cream of Mushroom my whole life and bought the other stuff because it was on sale (and I'm el cheapo. ) And it wasn't that good. I swore I'd never buy again. hehe

    I wonder if I should try it again...

    Not to mention the nasty side effects of sorbitol, maltitol, etc. Not nice.


    Please do add the recipes. I'd probably make most of them!

    Another thing is... I've really never used Regular cream of mushroom. I just started really cooking about 2 years ago and I'm a health nut so all I know is the healthy choice stuff... But i really have never had a problem w/ anythign being watery... IDK... I vote... You try it again! **Try it! Try it! Try it! Try it!** (that was supposed to be chanting )

    I'm not diabetic but trying to change my diet. I'll try anything that is low fat/cal/sodium.

    I've added some of the recipes in the Recipe forum, Main Dishes.

    The cookbook is called Taste of Home healthy Cooking; it lists a website of tasteofhome.com/healthycooking and it was only supposed to be displayed until Feb 17 (I bought it in mid-March). It includes a section of about 10 soups, and about 15 desserts too. Best $5 i've spent in a long time.
