sugar-free baking??

kseiverd | Aug 31, 201404:23 PM

Yesterday, neighbor threw a last HURRAH BBQ. He's having a knee replacement in a little over a month, and figures probably won't be doing this again in 2014. He has this HUMONGOUS, custom-made grill/cooker/smoker that rolled into his backyard last summer. When he has it fired up, people are drooling all over the development!

OK, back to my topic. He's gonna be laid-up for a while... wife anticipates serious whining!?! He's diabetic and I wanna make him some treats for his recuperation. I'm not a huge baker... mostly holiday cookies or an occasional pound cake.

Looking for tips on making sugar-free "sweets". I'm not familiar with the sugar substitutes... looking for recommendations. Can a recipe just have sugar left out and artificial sweetener in its place? Any GREAT sites to go to for recipes?
