Yogurt ‘Cheesecake’ Souffles

Can a dessert be a cheesecake when it doesn’t start with cheese? My gut feeling tells me that it can’t. In spite of that, I can’t resist calling these little yogurt-based souffles, “cheesecake souffles” because they taste exactly like a light and fluffy cheesecake – only without all the calories and fat of a “real cheesecake.” When I first set about making these, I was ...

Soft Yogurt Sandwich Rolls

Soft Yogurt Sandwich Rolls, interior shot

One of my favorite parts about breads – especially homemade bread – is the crispy crust that forms in the oven, but a crispy-crust bread isn’t always ideal for all applications. Sandwiches and hamburgers, for instance, usually do better with something a little softer. I love my standard hamburger bun recipes, but lately, I’ve been on a bit of a mission to come up with ...

Yogurt Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is a favorite dish of mine, though I don’t have all that often.

Chocolate Marble Yogurt Pound Cake

Looking at the picture of Rorie‘s recently baked marble bundt cake inspired me to pull out my copy of Alice Medrich’s Chocolate and the Art of Low Fat Desserts to make the very same recipe. I won’t go on about how much I love this cookbook (again), but I will say that this is an excellent cake and all the better because it’s actually quite ... Read More »

Fruit Kebabs and Honey Yogurt Dip

Fruit is something that we could all eat a little more of. As much as I love fruit, I tend to think of it as a morning or early afternoon snack, not as something substantial. For serious snacking, I generally turn towards savory foods, like pita chips, crackers and hummus. Fruit can be filling though, and it is likely to satisfy both your hunger and ... Read More »

Yogurt Panna Cotta

As much as Valentine’s Day is know for its decadent and indulgent desserts, I still like something light after a delicious meal. Heck, I’m not averse to a light dessert at any time, since I am much more likely to have room to fit it in. Panna cotta is often regarded as a light dessert, in the sense that it is incredibly delicate and really ... Read More »
