This book is fabulous. If I hadn't seen in the title that it was lower in fat and better for you I would have thought the desserts were from the full fat foods. These were easy and tasty.

This book is great! As a co-recipe developer on this book I am proud to say that i had a part in the fantastic recipes. Try the pecan cookies or the german chocolate cake. The Orange Bread pudding with sauce is so rich you will need a glass of milk. I have been teaching "fattening" pastry classes for years and this year I replaced a few of the recipes with these and people do not even know. Try it on your family!

My husband had a heart attack recently and I wanted recipes for desserts he could enjoy at special occasions, that the rest of the family would too. There is no scrimping of flavor in the recipes I have tried so far! And it's great for the whole family to be eating desserts that not only taste wonderful but have some added nutrition without unnecessary fats. Highly recommend!

I bought this dessert cookbook because I like desserts. But I need to watch my diet so when I started using this specialized dessert book I was in for a wonderful surprise. There is such a wide variety of choices it makes for a tough time of deciding what to make. The recipies are welll laid out and easy to follow, even for a clutz like me!
I think you will enjoy it as much s I do.
