Pcakes Strawberry Cupcakes

When I was pregnant with 'Cupcakes', I wanted all things strawberry; trifles, smoothies, cupcakes, frosting.....yum! For her first birthday it only made sense to create a strawberry cupcake, and I wanted it refined sugar free, 100% natural and delicious. I created these for her little party and have sense made them whenever the strawberry craving hits!

Key Lime Pie Tartlets

Key Lime Pie Tartlets

I made these for a get together with some friends and they were a huge hit. I had AJ try the filling as I was making it because he is more of an authority on key lime pies than I, and he said “Mmmm, that’s really good, but I thought you were going to make something healthy to take?”. By my smile/smirk he construed he should then ask, “What’s in this?”.  At the party, one friend ran over to her husband after trying a bite and said “Oh my gosh taste this, you won’t believe whats in it!” Another was thrilled he could eat his favorite dessert for under 150 calories. Try making this once, don’t be put-off...

Lemon Sugar Bread

This is a delicious summery quick bread scented with lemon zest and juice. It is coated in a light lemon sugar glaze, giving it a slight crunch. I  modified “Glazed Lemon Loaf” from Essentials of Healthful Cooking by William Sonoma to create it. It is lovely on a brunch menu or as a light dessert for a supper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Spray two small 5″x 3″ pans or one large 9″x 5″. 1 1/2 cups flour (ground Prairie White Wheat) 2/4 cup organic cane sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda finely shredded zest of 1 organic lemon kosher salt 1. Whisk together in a large bowl. 2 eggs juice from 1/2 lemon 1/2...

Low Fat Fudgy Chocolate Bread

This is taken from Bethenny Frankel’s recipe. The first time I stayed close to her original recipe but made it into a quick bread that my husband and I ate warm from the oven like a molten fudge cake; digging our spoons into before it made it to the cooling rack…YUM. No wonder this is a favorite of Marissa Hargitay’s (Law & Order SVU ; ). The second time I added some shredded zucchini (too much!) and it wasn’t quite as fudgy, but warm and dense and crumbly. My 3rd attempt (coming soon with pictues) I will add about 1/2 cup of zucchini and it should be almost perfect! I took out the oil, cut the sugar a little and sprinkled a bit of cinnamon...
