I love to increase the nutrition of baked goods by adding whole grains. That's the secret to these pecan tarts.

No Bake Graham Cracker Cheesycake
Very Good 4.6/5
(471 ratings)

This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.

Silky Smooth White Icing
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

Those who know me well will say that I am not a snob--except for when it comes to icing. I want the real stuff! To me cakes are ruined with fake whippy icings made with shortening.

Chocolate Cake (gluten,soy,dairy free)
Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

I am a stay at home mom with three children. Two of them and my husband have different food allergies and intolerances. This can make cooking a challenge. I love to do experimental cooking and incorporate extra protein like beans in because my oldest doesn't like meat. I hope you enjoy this deliciously dark chocolate cake as much as we do.
