Looks wonderful,
 
Kevin,

I made your crackers and can't to try your other recipes. This looks great, too! Honestly, if you created a cookbook, I'd be the first to buy it! You are truly inspiring with all your recipes, tips and weight loss story.

Marla :)

P.S. I am from Pittsburgh, too! Plum Borough. My family (Husband, daughter, Mother and Father) are becoming real fans of your recipes, too!

Thanks Marla, My DW and I lived in Plum when we first got married up on the hill in one of SK Managements Townhouses but that was over 20 years ago.

Kevin, Can you tell me where you get the LorAnn oils? I did not see them on Netrition. Also there is a thread where someone asked about sugarfree cinammon chips and you told her to make them with white chocolate and cinammon oil. What kind and where do you get the white chocolate. Thanks in advance for your help. Cindy

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas our local super Walmart had a LorAnn display with tons of flavors in the baking isle. 90% of what I have I got there.

As far as the white chocolate goes, a local drugstore carries a SF Belgium chocolate bar. Unfortunately I have not got around to doing the cinnamon and butterscotch chips yet.

Oh, wow, those sound delicious! *wishes she had a better stocked pantry*

kingcynl 01-11-2007 11:08 AM

Thanks Kevin. I guess I will give them a call or send an email to find out if they sell them anywhere in my area. I just loved cinammon chips and look forward to trying them. Cindy

I soooo want to make these but have to wait till I can put in an order for the oils unless I find them locally. No luck finding them locally so far, though.

decodiana 01-11-2007 05:14 PM

Cindy,

Netrition carries Ross white chocolate bars...:up:

kingcynl 01-16-2007 08:38 AM

Thanks Diana I am just getting ready to place an order. Cindy

kingcynl 01-17-2007 10:39 AM

When I called LorAnn to ask about the oils they told me they are carried at Hobby Lobby and in my area at a store called Cake Craft which sells all kinds of cake and candy making products. I haven't checked either place yet but intend to. Also you had to buy 12 bars of Ross chocolate bars from Netrition and I wasn't willing to make that much of a $ investment without knowing if I like them. I guess I will just check out the local stores and see what I can find. Cindy

OK, Kevin, you're going to HAVE to stop baking! Or atleast move a little closer to me.
