Get your caramel on.

CARAMEL LAYER COOKIE BARS No such thing as too many cookies…so here ya’ go. These were created to use with Cinnamon Bliss…one of my favorite things on earth.  You can find it in this link at Amazon.com and a little goes a long way, so the jug will last awhile.  If you can’t find it…

A Holiday beauty!

CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT CAKE ROLL Chocolate and cake in the same dessert is wonderful.  Add in some cool, wintery peppermint-laced cream filling and let’s just swoon and get it over with, shall we?! So pretty! Your holiday table will love you for the effort you put forth to make this.  (And it’s not hard – don’t…

Peppermint Cheese Ball…a beautiful Holiday dessert

CHOCOLATE-MINT CHEESE BALL Just in time for the Holiday dessert tables that are everywhere you go.  You can’t escape this time of year – the buffets, the lunch rooms, the office parties, and hundred and one other occasions to eat…each filled with stuff we shouldn’t have. This one everybody will love – whether they like…

WHAT’S in that cake?!

FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE When I saw this recipe I was very skeptical…usually these kind leave a LOT to be desired. But this is one moist and delicious dessert!  And unless you told someone they would never, in a million years, guess what the secret ingredient was. It’s very flavorful and rises well…not eggy or too…

Splendid satisfaction in 35 seconds!

35-SECOND CHOCOLATE CAKE Now here’s a sweet little sweetie that you can mix and cook in the cup and in – alright maybe 1 1/2 minutes tops – you’ll have a cute little cutie for a guilt free snack.  (But it’s only 35 seconds in the microwave…so there!)  Soooo good, for so not a lot…

A sweet with your tea…

CINNAMON-CHOCOLATE TEA BREAD I love to make quick breads.  They are hardly any work, but always rewarding! This one is soft and buttery with a ribbon of cinnamon infused chocolate running through…can’t get any more comforting than that! Slather it with some fat free cream cheese, if you like…but warm and plain is just fine!…

Dark, dark chocolate…my favorite cake (this week!)

MOCHA CAKE This is always requested for birthdays, potlucks…just about anywhere someone wants me to bring a cake – this one is IT! I adore this – it’s very, very chocolaty and extremely moist.  (It’s not low-carb…sometimes you can’t mess too much with a great thing.  But it’s sugar free or low sugar, depending on…

Come over for coffee…you’ll be glad you did!

CAPPUCCINO CHEESECAKE with DARK CHOCOLATE GANACHE Rich, creamy, velvety-smooth with that bite from the coffee and wonderfulness of deep, dark chocolate….what a way to go! Do NOT make cheesecake with fat-free cream cheese – not if you want an exceptional dessert.  It doesn’t give that real-cakey-almost-dry texture that we associate with fabulous cheesecake. And when…

Oh. My. Gosh…

CHOCOLATE-CHERRY CREAM PUFFS Don’t be traumatized by the length of the recipe… it’s not as hard as it looks! And the ooohs and aahhs that will come from those you serve them to will have you making them again and again. Experiment with the flavors of the filling if you wish…it’s easy when you use…

Can you still find some cherries this summer? Here ya’ go…

CHOCOLATE CHERRY MOUSSE And Hallelujah, it’s no sugar added! Plump and gorgeous cherries luxuriating in a silky-smooth, not-too-sweet mousse. YES…this is whipped cream, BUT…a little goes a very long way – so no worries about budgeting it into your eating plan for the day.   ~~~~           2 ounces unsweetened solid…
