Sugar-free cake and pudding mixes are the secrets to making this cherry-studded dessert recipe low in calories, fat, and carbs.
Like roasting a whole goose or constructing an entire village out of gingerbread, making a trifle for Christmas seems like part of some storybook holiday fantasy, old-timey yet kind of decadent, the sort of thing one might do if one lived in Downton Abbey (or was starring in one's own food TV Christmas special). Plus, a trifle has its own special bowl -- and nothing says "this is a recipe for only the truly food-obsessed" like something that requires a large piece of servingware that you're only liable to use once a year. Yet we're here to let youread more
The holidays are a golden ticket to indulge a little, so don't waste your Christmas dessert hour on ho-hum sweets. We like Christmas cookies as much as the next person, but who wouldn't bypass a sugar cookie for a plate of rich, gooey Black Forest trifle? With all of the dazzle and sparkle of the season, you have to make a little magic in the kitchen to get noticed.
There are few fruits quite as stunning as blood oranges. Enjoy them in some favorite recipes before their short season is over.
We've got a one-word rule when it comes to summer entertaining: easy. Six months from now (can you believe it?), we'll be as happy as Santa's elves holed up in the kitchen frosting Christmas cookies, but come the 4th of July, we want to be outside, writing our name in the thick evening air with sparklers like everyone else. How convenient, then, that summer makes entertaining so easy. Better yet, some distant patriot had the good sense to choose red, white and blue as our national colors. That means by now Mother Nature (bless her heart) has done moreread more
I am one of those people who needs to have something sweet at the end of dinner. But normally, on weeknights at least, that sweetness comes in the form of either fruit (clementines and pineapple chunks are my two current must-haves) or dark chocolate. Then the holidays came, and I had a sweet surprise.
Bananas--in a cake, in a pudding, in ice cream--I'll take them anyway I can get them. Coming in at seven-and-a-half-months pregnant, I'm on a fruit kick (not such a bad craving), and the colder the fruit is, the more I like it. And yes, I know that putting bananas into the fridge to chill is a big no-no, but have you had a cold banana lately?
When it comes to healthy eating, summer gives us a split personality. On one hand, we all want to eat healthy to ensure plenty of hours outside enjoying our favorite sun-splashed activities (in other words, we want to look better in our swimsuits). On the other hand, it seems like summer and treats are synonymous: fruit pies, buttery shortcakes, and of course, ice cream (lots and lots of ice cream!). Summertime is loaded with diet-busting dessert options. For those of us who feel torn between these two summer extremes, there is a third option! Fresh, tasty, healthy summerread more
Strawberries are ripe and delicious straight from the box during summer but are made even more sweet in these 10 tasty dessert recipes.
When the temperature starts to soar, the last thing you need is a hot oven to make things worse. But, hey, the family's gotta have dessert, right? (And maybe the guests, too.)
Waaaaaaaah. It's time for healthy eating, diets, no more pasta, getting back in shape. The holidays are over, and we're at the point where everything starts to feel like one long sick day. We're in our PJs until 5 in the afternoon. We're eating candy all day long. There are toys scattered everywhere. Worst of all, we're just sick and tired of fun. Yearning for some discipline. Discipline, people! Fresh air and a fresh start can't come soon enough! Bring on those healthy dinners -- every day from now on! Wait, what's all this "we" stuff? For allread more
Everybody loves dessert, and backyard cookouts are no exception. And, just as every party has its most-popular guest -- the guy with the great stories; the gal who can make everyone laugh -- the most popular person at the cookout is the smart cookie who brings the best dessert. This summer, cookouts and potlucks provide plenty of opportunities to dazzle with summer desserts, and all you need to do is follow a few easy guidelines to ensure success. Since many summer festivities are outside, the key is to find a dessert that tastes delicious but is also able toread more
Pumpkin pie, we love you. But when it's fall party time (whether it's an autumn dinner party, a Halloween hoedown, or a Thanksgiving spread), we'd like to shake up the dessert table with some pumpkin sweets that are a little unexpected. Pumpkin is one of those ingredients that bring out bragging rights, and rightfully so. For some gardeners, it's the urge to grow mega-pumpkins: the largest pumpkin ever grown (according to the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension weighed 1,140 pounds). And for big-thinking bakers, it's the yen to concoct monster pies: the largest pumpkin pie ever made was moreread more
