February SOS Kitchen Challenge Stevia Round-up & Giveaway Winners


Thanks to everyone who submitted a recipe using stevia for February's SOS Kitchen Challenge! As always, we received a stellar collection of recipes!  And I want to extend personal thanks to Ricki for hosting this month's challenge - I kind of dropped off the face of the map on this challenge, and I apologize for my lack of enthusiastic comments on your amazing submissions! 

Here's the "Sweet"

Ricki and I were blown away by the creativity in the "sweet" section of the event this past month.  While I have added every single recipe to my "to try" list, some that stood out as particularly enticing were

And I must also give honorable mention to two posts on panna cotta!  We also had a submission from reader Jess, who made Ricki's Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles for her sweetie on Valentine's Day.  

And now, for the "Savory". . . .

Um. . . well, er. . . what the--HUH??

It appears that the only savory recipe in the list was Ricki's Crunchy Green Salad!  I guess most people consider stevia a "sweet-only" ingredient, but if you think about all the savory recipes made with a dash of sugar or honey, you'll begin to understand the wide range of recipes that can include stevia.  I hope you'll try out some savory variations in the future!

And the Winners!

Whether sweet or savory, four recipes were still chosen at random to win our four prizes: a box of 50 packets of NuNaturals stevia powder and a 2-ounce bottle of NuNaturals Vanilla flavored  stevia liquid each. Many thanks to NuNaturals for generously providing these prizes! And the winners are

Congratulations, everyone! Please send us an email at soskitchenchallengeATgmailDOTcom with your mailing address, and we'll be sure that you get your stevia prize asap!

Sorry, no comments/questions allowed right now.
Hi reader! My schedule as full-time grad student with two part-time jobs doesn't allow me the time to manage comments. I hope you enjoy what you find and can figure out answers to any questions you may have. xo
