Helloooo, long-lost friends! Things have been a bit quiet around here lately, and I’ve missed you! I’ve had a crazy confluence of work and life stuff going on, and unfortunately it seems like it’s going to continue for the next few weeks, so SugarHero might not be updated as frequently as I’d like. But I’m hopeful that I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule very soon, so please stick with me!
Enough boring scheduling talk. Let’s get to the real reason you’re here: the sugar!
My friend Shauna Sever published her third book, Real Sweet, last month. It is a gorgeous cookbook full of recipes using natural sugars like coconut sugar, muscovado, turbinado, honey, and much more! I may fancy myself a sugar hero, but the truth is I often (unintentionally) limit myself to standard processed sugars like granulated, brown, and powdered. There’s a whole wide world of other sugars out there, and Shauna’s book does an amazing job of demystifying them, explaining each sugar’s strengths and properties, and featuring them in some seriously mouth-watering recipes.
