Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge Cake

This cake is similar to one I made on Top Chef that was also featured in Food & Wine magazine. In this version, Iíve cut the fat without sacrificing flavor. The secret? Greek yogurt! This cake normally contains an entire cup of oil, which is about 1,800 calories, compared to only 120 calories in a cup of Greek yogurt! Submitted by MARISACHURCHILL

Lemon Berry Tartlets

The trend of mini desserts is a healthy eater's salvation. When sweets are pre-portioned, it's harder to cheat. You can't say, "Well, I'll just have a small sliver" or "I'll just even out this side of the cake..."
These Lemon-Berry Tartlets scream summertime to me. I imagine eating them on a patio after a luncheon with my girlfriends while sipping iced mint tea and feeling the warm breeze. They're just so refreshingly clean on the tongue.
Lemon and raspberries pair well. Each has a sourness with hints of sweetness and an acidity. You could use blueberries or strawberries, but I just love this combination.
Phyllo dough is a secret weapon for the healthy baker--it even comes in whole wheat varieties. The paper-thin layers of dough are often painted in butter for pastries like baklava, but they'll serve as a low-calorie pie crust with minimal added fat. The dough itself is basically just flour and water.
The "curd" filling is basically a lemon pudding. You can serve it on scones or muffins, as a topping for ice cream or sorbet, or as a pie filling, as you see here.
