BF Top 5: Single-Serving WLS-friendly Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas

One of the biggest worries I’ve heard from post-ops about making WLS-friendly desserts for Thanksgiving is getting stuck with the leftovers if nobody else likes it. It’s a valid concern. Although I’d theorize if we stop TELLING people the dessert is healthy (instead, simply put it on the table and walk away!) we’d find this is not so much a …

Mini-Caramel Cream Cakes

Ok, so I’m not into recipe plagiarism so in the interest of FULL disclosure I’ll say this is a total Hungry Girl knock-off. Not that there was anything wrong with HG’s version but…it wasn’t exactly WLS-friendly. I mean…who could eat that whole thing??? Well maybe some can. But for a good many of us it is a stretch. Plus adapting …

Sniff… “Well, it looks like regular sweet potato pie…” Holds plate closer to nose and sniffs again. “Smells like it too…” Pokes with finger then tastes fingertip. “C’mon, Nikki, what’d you do to it?
