Cranberry Orange Muffins

Sweet oranges and tart cranberries are a pretty pair! I always keep a bag of cranberries in my freezer year-round since they disappear from the produce isle after the winter holidays.

Chocolate Sour Cream Icing

Hands down, this smear beats the plastic tub icing that comes from the grocery store. Easy to spread, it works on almost any cake and is ideal for icing cupcakes.

Spinach Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Sweet and tangy poppy seed dressing works with any salad but is especially good with summer ripe strawberries and nutrient-packed spinach. Ideal for an outdoor summer or late spring brunch.

Chocolate Sorbet

Low in fat but high in cocoa powder, this bittersweet chocolate sorbet is for true chocolate lovers only. Spread it between two low-fat grahams to make it into an ice cream sandwich.

Red Velvet Cheesecake with Beets

Traditional red velvet cake calls for tons of red food coloring dye. My version uses beets to color this cheesecake naturally while adding extra nutrition

Buttermilk Ice Cream

Buttermilk is one of my favorite things to use in the kitchen. It has a strong, cheesy taste if you drink it from the carton, but turns magically into a rich lemony cool treat when frozen.

Bitter Frenchie

The tang of bitters is just the trick to get your mouth watering before dinner. I serve this to guests when I pull out the martini glasses and turn on the jazz!

Spiced Hot Cocoa

This low-fat version of hot cocoa has a Mexican twist! I add lots of spices and a hint of chili pepper to give it that extra warm flavor.
