agave nectar

since I’m such a sweet freak and love baking, I’ve always been interested in finding alternative baking methods without using sugar. when I first read through Super Natural Cooking last year, I read about Agave Nectar and it’s sweetening possibilities. dlb and I ditched the usual brown sugar in our oatmeal routine, and substituted Agave Nectar. it is one of the most natural and least refined sweeteners available.
so today, when Heidi posted about Ania Catalano’s new book, Baking with Agave Nectar, I knew I had to check it out. the cookbook is packed with pages of delightful things from french toast and muffins to cookies and desserts. I’ve reserved my copy, and hope to pick it up tonight!
