Dean got his cholesterol checked and has since been eating low cholesterol and low fat foods. He has been REALLY good the last few weeks. I hadn't made his dessert for this month and wanted to make him something special for his being so good. I thought of something (fairly uninspiring) and then decided to try to find a low fat cheesecake recipe.
I thought finding a good recipe was going to be a huge challenge but I was lucky. After playing around for a short while online, I found this recipe at miss make. I made it and my family LOVED it! (Since I don't eat cheesecake, I'll just have to take their word for it.)
Mine isn't as pretty as the one on her blog, but it disappeared quickly!
Matt had seconds....and thirds...
I followed the recipe but used pre-made pie crusts (to the delight of my family, the filling was enough for 2 crusts.)
I also made a really good southern pound cake . Afterall, I needed a dessert too...but don't worry, I gave half the cake away....
When I cut the cake in half to give some away, here is what the swirled chocolate part looked like....
