Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5
(83 ratings)

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.

Cinnamon Chocolate Shortbread
Good 3.9/5
(37 ratings)

This almond shortbread recipe replaces my mom's buttery shortbread. My new and improved version has less than half the calories and fat.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

My version of a "Squidoo" website recipe. As the website promises, these are filled with fruity, nutty goodness. It's left up to the baker for what fruits and nuts to use. I chose dried apricots, prunes and dried cherries. Splendid combination! Much better than store-bought granola! Only 68 calories per cookie!

Finally, a strawberry cake that doesn't call for gelatin or pre-packaged cake mix! Yes, I do bake with butter, but feel free to sub margarine if you so desire.

Note about using cake flour: You can use all-purpose flour in place of cake flour, substituting 2T cornstarch for 2T AP flour for each cup used (in this recipe, you will use 4.25 T cornstarch and remove 4.25 T AP flour from the measurements listed). Sift, sift sift your dry ingredients!

This tastes great with a lemon icing, or topped with some homemade glaze made with fresh strawberries, cornstarch, a little Splenda or sugar.

This is the healthiest ice-cream ever... all my friends were dubious about it at first but loved it after they tatsed it. Good for those nights when you feel like treating yourself to something sweet. A great recipe to make in bulk and have a few of these already frozen for treats when you need them

This is a delicious way of making a healthier cake! You will not be able to tell the difference from a regular egg and oil cake.

Whole Grain & Honey Blueberry Muffins
Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

These muffins are not only good for you, but are filled with berry goodness from peak-season berries. Not berry season frozen will do. Be sure to add flour to the blueberries before you fold them into the batter so that they will not all fall to the bottom.

Soft-Serve Banana 'Ice Cream'
Very Good 4.5/5

Frozen bananas rival soft serve when given a whirl in the food processor. No cholesterol and no added sugar, just creamy and sweet bananas!
