My sister Katherine's baby shower was last weekend in Calgary, and it was a great time. It was super nice to meet some of her friends, who I have never met being that we live in different cities. I had emailed them back and forth a little bit while organizing the shower, so it was great to put faces to their names. Also, her mother-in-law from Saskatchewan was able to make it out as well, so she had a mother and a mother-in-law, and a sister and a sister-in-law in attendance. Good times :).
Raise your hand if you know lots about stevia. If you don't know anything, keep your hand down. Mine would be somewhere in the middle. Then the lovely people at NuNaturals sent me an email asking me to review some of their products. I figured this was as good a time as any to increase my stevia IQ. I knew that stevia was a great natural sweetener that I could cook with to avoid getting the gross sugar highs and energy crashes I experience when I eat sugar. But when I have cooked with stevia in the past I've struggled to get past the slightly bitter aftertaste.
