The manufacturer claims that Sucanat is different from any sugar you have ever tried. But is it really worth paying four times the price of white sugar?Well, for some people, yes.We found it to be pretty darn good. It performed well in recipes, giving the dishes a distinctive flavor that people with discerning palates should appreciate.But there are also a couple of caveats in cooking with Sucanat:*Although it supposedly can be used cup per cup as a substitute in any recipe where sugar is required, you may want to adjust the quantity for use in your favorite recipes because the taste is quite assertive.

WASHINGTON -- No gum-chewing is allowed on the People's White House Tour.Doesn't seem fair, does it? You know if you had laid out a hundred grand or so on Bill Clinton's re-election, you'd be chewing to your heart's content. And you'd be doing it in the Lincoln Bedroom to boot. All night long.But not yesterday, not on this, the Great Unwashed Tour. No gum, no balloons, no firecrackers, no electronic stun guns.A lot of fun this is going to be.Apparently word's gotten out about this. The White House Visitor's Center said to report at 7: 30 a.m. for a crack at a tour ticket yesterday.

I use low-fat salad dressings. I drink Diet Sparkling Hawaiia Punch. I buy non-fat yogurt and fat-free breads. I use tofu, and even like it if it's cooked right. I steam my vegetables. I avoid Ben & Jerry's. I take the skin off my turkey breast. I'm exercising, I'm watching my cholesterol, I'm taking care of myself.Part of my health regimen involves maintaining my psychological and spiritual well-being, which means that sometimes I simply must have a cookie.When I want a cookie, I want a REAL cookie, a monster of a cookie, a cookie so intense that the resulting guilt is of supreme quality.
