Third Party Links for Recipes

Just a few notes… Some of these recipes are too high in calories; I’m notorious for making substitutions. Some of these I’ve tried, many I have not… yet :-) I keep this list so I can reference when I do want to make some of these things. Of the items I have made, both my husband and I like them, a few though are more for my taste buds than his. Since these links are on third party sites which I have no control over, I’m not responsible for dead links. I’ll try to update them on my own site when possible. And now, on with the list! Sweets

Pumpkin Pudding

Although I’m not longer diabetic, I still look for ways to keep my blood sugar from spiking without compromising on taste.  I found a great slow cooker recipe and modified it with substitutions which keep my blood sugar relatively steady.  I love this pudding; it’s similar in taste to pumpkin pie but with fewer calories since there’s no crust.  I’ve used both canned pumpkin purée and today’s batch was made with fresh pumpkin from our garden (completely chemical/pesticide free!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of pumpkin purée
  • 1 can of 2% evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup Splenda (baking type 1:1 ratio)
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (I make my own blend with cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Preparation:

Mix all ingredients together very well and pour into a greased slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
