Chocolate - How To Make it Sugar-Free and Low Carb
The health benefits of chocolate, and how to use it to make sugar-free and low carb treats.

Snow Pudding
Light, delicious, and almost no carbs, fat, or calories. One of my favorite special desserts as a child, only without the sugar.

Almond Spice Cookies
I was going for the flavors in hermit cookies with these sugar-free and low-carb cookies. They are slightly chewy. With few ingredients, they are very simple to make. Made with almond meal, they are wheat-free, sugar-free, and milk-free.

Microwave Apple Almond Dessert
For me, baked apple is a comfort food. Regular recipes are full of sugar and raisins. This is sort of a cross between baked apple and an individual apple crisp, but it's done in the microwave, so it isn't crispy. Sometimes I top it with yogurt, or mascarpone cheese mixed with the flavored sugar-free syrup.

Sugar Free Torta del Re - King's Cake
This is a low carb, sugar-free version of a Northern Italian almond cake with lemon flavoring.

Sugar-Free EASY Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
You won't believe how easy this fudge is to make - no cooking, and it is so good!

Raspberry Vanilla Cream Recipe
It's not cold enough to be ice cream, but it's a similar consistency as soft-serve ice cream. Use low fat ricotta ffor South Beach or Zone.

Italian Bounet (Almond Cocoa Pudding)
It is sort of like a thick flan, served in slices. Use milk instead of cream.

Sugar-Free Instant Pumpkin Pudding
This pumpkin pudding can be made in a flash. It's high in nutrition while being low in calories and sugar-free. 8 grams of carb per serving.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pie
People love this pie. People have told me it was the best they've even had, and they didn't know it was low carb or sugar-free. It could also be a custard-type pudding. Use milk instead of cream and soy milk.

Sugar-free Candied Peanuts
These peanuts aren't nearly as candy-like as peanut brittle, but they are in the same family.
