So I will admit... I have a thing for dessert. We go way back, dessert and I, back to the good old times when I could inhale oreos by the sleeve in a single sitting and then run around for an hour or two afterward.
I miss those days.
Well, since then my love of oreos or anything with chocolate, peanut butter, frosting or fat for that matter has not changed one bit. But, admittedly, my self-control has. Thank goodness.
Yes, you CAN have your dessert and eat it too, if you are smart about it! There are plenty of after-dinner snacks that are guilt-free and fabulous. I think I might make a post about some of my favorites in the near future.
This yummy grape dessert is one idea- not too hard to make at all, and- TRUST ME- it's a lot better than it looks AND sounds! I know the picture is really suffering (after I make something I get really antsy to try it and, in all the excitement, I nearly forget to take a picture- thus the lack of quality photography skills on my blog- which I am working on!), but just take my word for it: this is one recipe you've got to try! The recipe is originally from recipezaar.com but i found it on Gina's Weight Watcher Skinny Recipes blog- a fabulous blog, by the way.
