Hi Diane, thanks for doing the sacrificing, errr experimenting, on these goodies.  We're waiting for your word now.  :-)   When I make cheese cake, I use the Kraft 1/3 Less Fat packages because for some reason those have fewer carbs than the other cream cheese varieties, including the store brand.  I've also mixed the cream cheese with pumpkin for an interesting combo cheese cake/pumpkin pie.  I like the idea of berry squares - what's the recipe?

I'm always amazed at what a few berries and a drizzle of chocolate sauce can do for simple ice cream or profiterole/cream puff, pound cake, brownie, etc. I'm usually pretty much "done" by the time dessert rolls around so, a bite or two of something is the perfect amount. Dessert on a stick keeps popping into my head for some reason :-)

Chocolate fondue, petite fours, mini ice cream balls, mini cupcakes, baked apple (1/2 apple=serving), wine-poached pears (1/2 pear), fruit/apple gallette (a rustic, open-faced pie), cheese plate, or any of the aforementioned, are what I might serve.

Hubby & I just came back from Florida and managed to lose about 5 pounds each. Must have been the 10 hours/day of walking. All good - just in time to shovel all the snow lately. Sheesh! If it keeps up, I'll be looking for those carbs to keep me going :-)

Curious to know how your experiments go, Diane - do keep us posted, eh?
