    Where does all the Splenda get used in the Key Lime pie? The recipe lists 2 tsp plus 1/2 cup. But the method only asks for 1 tsp in the crust and 3 1/2 tsp in the filling.

    Hi Mark

    I’m from South Africa. Over here we don’t have products like Splenda; Atkins bake mix and what does “twin” mean in your upside down sticky buns receipe? (brown sugar twin). Do you have any suggestions that I can use as an alternative?

    I love trying out new receipes, but these “problems” are getting the better of me!!

    Love to hear from you.

    Hi Mark

    I am also from South Africa and struggling with obtaining ingredients mentioned in your recipes. I would like to know what to use in place of Atkins bake mix, Splenda, half-and-half, string cheese, jicama, spaghetti squash, etc.

    Would it be possible for you to give me Hester’s e-mail address as I would like to know how she copes with the Atkins plan and if she can offer any support to me.

    Waiting to hear from you.
