Sweet Lemon Delights
My neighbor is an awesome cook. Just look at what she brought me today! They are filled with a creamy lemon filling & topped with a tart lemon glaze. Don’t we all wish we were this creative! She promises the recipe, so I will post it soon on: Get Off Your Butt & Bake!
In the mean time…..just drool over the picture.
I ate all of these, yes….all three of them. It’s a good thing I ran on the treadmill, and also did pilates this morning. My hubby is out of town, but he probably wouldn’t have eaten any of them anyway! He is a healthy eater, not much for sweets. You could call him a “fruit-a-holic!” Is that a word? I came across this article, and thought I’d share these uplifting thoughts:

We all know that ice cream is fatty. I read recently, that when you are licking an ice cream cone, you are essentially licking a ball of fat!!

Oh…..that totally ruined my day.

I’m not a total ice cream lover, however I still like it once in a while. My favorite is the No Fat Vanilla at Cold Stone. I still don’t believe that it’s NO FAT…..it would have to be proven. It doesn’t matter that I have them add a Skor Candy bar to the mix. That wouldn’t add anymore calories…..would it?

In that light, I present you with Newsweek’s list of six of the most fattening ice creams – all nutrition information is for a serving size of a half cup.

1. Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter (360 calories, 24 grams of fat)
2. Ben and Jerry’s Chubby Hubby (330 calories, 20 grams of fat)
3. Häagen-Dazs Butter Pecan (310 calories, 23 grams of fat)
4. Sheer Bliss Pomegranate with chocolate chips (320 calories, 20 grams fat)
5. Ben and Jerry’s Vermonty Python (300 calories, 19 grams of fat)
6. Coldstone Cookie Batter (300 calories, 16 grams of fat)

Check out the complete Newsweek article for a breakdown of what makes each one as bad as it is and some ideas for healthier alternatives

Now that I’ve ruined your day…….you might as well bake something yummy! Check out the new recipes at
