Dessert of the month

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....

a TREE!


neat, huh!?

Hey! Since there's a tree in your pound cake, doesn't that mean it's uh...er...a VEGETABLE? And, therefore, HEALTHY for you? :-)

You are so creative....I know the cake middle was not intentional but isn't it amazing.... Love it!!!

My family loves cheesecake but I don't make it, though I have been doing a lot of baking lately. My co-workers are certainly happy. :) That pound cake looks good. I printed out an orange olive oil poundcake recipe that I want to try soon. Hubby came home early today as he though his blood pressure was through the roof. Think he just had a stressful day. He went out and bought a new digital machine so we've all been checking our blood pressure. Mine is at optimal level. :) Best wishes to you for a great week. Tammy

The desserts look yummy! The tree design is very cool! I'm surprised that you don't like cheesecake. My daughter asks for it as her birthday dessert instead of a birthday cake. Since she just turned 8 we've been eating a lot of cheesecake around here.

Now that is very cool, just never know what will bloom.
