The Lushest, Yummiest Cheesecake Ever!
This no-bake cheesecake is quite simply one of the best tastes ever. It's rich, decadent, creamy and ooey-gooey good. Make it a day ahead so that it has a chance to firm up in the refrigerator and then serve it with a big pot of coffee or tea.

Low Fat/Low Sugar Orange Cranberry Bread
One of my favorite holiday tastes is the refreshing way tart cranberries are offset by the sweetness of orange and wrapped together in buttery dough. It can make a nice change from the endless parade of overly sweet holiday candies and the cookie blitz that hits my office at this time every year.

Low-Fat Creamy Spinach
Even many non-veggie lovers like creamed spinach. What's not to like? It's creamy and rich and...a blocked artery waiting to happen. Obviously you can eat anything once in a while and creamed spinach is Brian's particular indulgence on our rare outings to steak houses. But this version is so light it can be eaten every day and so tasty that you'll want to.

The Annual Latke Fry
It's the happy Jewish festival of light, Chanukah, and that means a celebration filled with delicious fried potato pancakes. Known as latkes, these crispy fried potatoes rank as one of the tastiest foods we've ever eaten. Recipe variations abound and include the addition of sweet potatoes, zucchini and other root vegetables. All of those would be wonderful, we're sure, but the pure potato latke is a heavenly creation and, if you only eat them rarely (as the calorie content would dictate) then we say go for the original.
