Gingerbread Custard… breakfast-dessert!

GINGERBREAD CUSTARD There is not much more comforting than the silky, velvety, creamy, decadent feel of old-fashioned baked custard! These are so good…spicy and not too sweet.  I love them warm, but chilling seems to accent the flavors.  Breakfast, dessert, midnight-snack – you can enjoy  a guilt-free  little cup of love anytime. ~~~~   ….

Dark, smooth, rich…sugar free chocolate truffles

CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES I love dark chocolate!  And in my sugar-free life I still need it.  These little beauties will satisfy that urge in a creamy-dreamy way.  Using the flavored syrups will give you unlimited flavors, also. I created this recipe (specifically for use with the Valor sugar free chocolate) long before I realized they were…

Pineapple Crisp – no sugar added

PINEAPPLE CRISP The inspiration for this recipe came from that old favorite side dish Baked Pineapple…a sweet, bread cube-topped, butter drenched goodie that is scrumptious, yes…but not very figure-friendly! I turned it into a dessert, instead…and for those of you who love pineapple, this will be right up your alley. ~~~~     Vegetable Cooking…

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…

Simple, but elegant…

ALMOND CHEESECAKE Cheesecakes are one of my favorite desserts to make because they are so forgiving. Taking minutes to whip up, the oven does the work and you reap the rewards. Rich, decadent, lovely, and gorgeous – everyone you serve them to will love you for taking the time. This one is flavored with almond…

Mi Amore!

CASSATA CAKE What a lovely way to end a meal! An Italian dessert full of sweet ricotta cream between layers of light sponge cake soaked, in this case, in sugar free raspberry syrup.  So glorious! I’ve seen them un-iced, or completely covered with cream – either way it’s a wonderful thing.  Don’t be discouraged with…

Hello, morning!

PLUM CLAFOUTIS Silk pajamas, gauzy curtains, a sweet morning breeze through the window…a sleeping kitty, a captivating book, a cup of coffee laced with cream – and a gorgeous Clafouti studded with ruby jewels…sigh… I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a dessert, but I like it for breakfast. With a little warm cream…

What have we here?

OREO CHEESECAKE That’s right, kids! The good stuff is still available to us! Creamy white and packed with crunchy bits of cream-filled wafer cookies this cake will make a huge splash whenever you serve it! (I have to say my daughter made the one that got photographed…so gorgeous!) ~~~~   Vegetable cooking spray 2 pkgs…

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…

Sitting on an orange cloud!

ORANGE CHIFFON PIE I don’t know if you love soft, fluffy, airy, light, sweet, simple, gorgeous desserts…(!)…if not, this may change your mind. This pie is not heavy or dense, so after a protein meal it’s wonderfully wonderful! (If you don’t like the thought of using raw egg whites, the powdered meringue would work, also….
