    Simple, delicious and wonderful.....

    The recipes in this cookbook are lightened in calorie and fat content but to taste the outcome you wouldn't know it. All the recipes I have tried are well written, simple ingredients and the outcome is delicious. You would not know to taste the recipes that they have been reworked to reduce the calorie and fat content. There are plenty of traditional recipes like Strawberry Shortcake, Red Velvet, Cheesecake and various Pound Cakes but there are some non traditional recipes that are simply fantastic, like Chocolate Chipotle Cake (try it, it is wonderful). So far the best has been the Plum Crumble Cake, yum!
