Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Spiced Cranberry Sauce

This comes out a little on the tart side, so if you want it a bit sweeter, feel free to add 1/4 cup of the Splenda granulated which will NOT add a PointsPlus™ value.

Yield: 2 cups
1 serving = 1/2 cup = FREE!!!! (zero PointsPlus™)
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes

12 oz. cranberries
1 3/4 cup Splenda Granulated
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered until the berries pop and mixture is thickened, about 30 minutes.

Cool. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and refrigerate until chilled.


Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Loving Life(time)!
