The Low Sugar, Gluten Free desert that won the Dr. Oz bake-off contest.


I thought it was so funny to be on the Dr. Oz show. It’s a pretty slick production over there, and it was fun getting the whole makeup/stylist/mic-ing treatment. He asked both myself and a terrific Philly girl with a gluten free blog to compete against each other with a low sugar desert and guess what???? I WON! I was pretty surprised because Jennifer’s entry (strawberry mouse) was AWESOME and I now have it as part of our desert options here at hohm. Charles has to have desert every day- even if we do eat totally clean, raw and real. Of course I don’t complain- I look forward to a sweet end to the day too.
Dr. Oz show: its (today) Thursday October 24th on ABC television. It airs twice in most cities, 12 noon, and 4PM here in New York. But if you miss it no worries: the recipe is right here. I’m going to get you a link to my new friend Jennifer Fugo and a new favorite website: http://glutenfreeschool.com
