Sugar Twin

>What is Sugar Twin?

It's a spoonable, non-nutritive, sweetener based on
maltodextrin and saccharin. (4 grams of carbohydrate
per tsp.) I use it because it's one of the sweeteners
that is measured one-for-one with sugar, which makes
it easy to use in cooking. (The box says that they 
don't recommend using more than 1/2 cup of it in a 
recipe, probably because you start to get that typical
saccharin taste.) You could use any other sweetener
that suits you in the oatmeal cookie recipe. 

Has anyone seen a source for the new sweetener that's
made from sugar?

It's cold today -- a great day for a bowl of Suicide Soup.
That's what a Weight Watcher lecturer called it, years
ago. She said it was for days when life doesn't seem
worth living: Pour a 32-oz can of tomato juice into a pot.
Chop up and add 4 cups of any green or leafy vegetables
you have in the house (green beans, summer squash,
celery, bok choy, green onions, etc.) Add a little pepper,
bring to a boil, and simmer until the vegetables are tender.
Great with a piece of French bread, on a cold winter day.
