On our most recent trip to Paris, Cate and I were lucky enough to snag reservations at four of the hottest restaurants in town: Chateaubriand, Septime, Frenchie, and 6 Paul Bert.  All four were unique experiences and each is worthy of a visit while in Paris.  But if we had to pick a favorite, it would be Septime.  This was actually our second dinner at Septime – Cate and I went for the first time on our last trip to Paris and loved it so much we had to go back.  And it was just as amazing as we remembered.

Perhaps because it’s not as exotic as Marrakech nor as familiar as Paris, Madrid took a slight backseat in the planning process.

It is no surprise that I have a HUGE sweet tooth.  I love anything sweet and eat dessert pretty much every night.  I just can’t resist sugar!  And that is why skinny desserts are my best friend.  I love lightening up classic dessert recipes whenever I can.  I’m always subbing in Greek yogurt, applesauce, and almond milk in my recipes.  This collection of recipes is full of healthier versions of classic desserts.   You won’t even miss the fat or calories – all of them taste absolutely delicious!  And since they are skinny, you can have seconds :)
