Health Twist:
Desserts don't have to be eaten after a meal. Sometimes having a small sweet as a between-meal snack can be more satisfying if you are hungry, advises noted cardiologist, Dr. Roger Blumenthal, Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Health Twist:
Combining reduced-fat and fat-free ingredients with small amounts of full-fat ingredients (butter and coconut) results in the best of both worlds--tasty treats without guilt!
