I got this book at a tent sale at Half Price Books in Austin. I think I paid a dollar.

It's full of recipes for sweets without sugar. I don't cook much out of it because it seems to call for ingredients that I don't already have around the house. Also, the recipes are decidedly not vegan, so the recipes don't work if you're going to be feeding people who don't eat animal products. Also, I don't cook desserts much, and when I do, I tend to go with my tried and true vegan chocolate cake and peanut
I am having fun with this little book that I bought for $1 at a library sale. It uses fruit and fruit juices for sweetening desserts.

The Banana Jam is easy and delicious (see blog post here: and I have seveal other recipes tagged.
Some very interesting recipes which use fruit (fresh, frozen, canned or dried) instead of sugar to sweeten cakes, pastries and desserts. Rather acquired tastes... I prefer to add at least a little honey, and they don't keep at all (sugar is preservative) but several useful ideas.
