Description: Light Desserts serves up nearly 150 recipes for elegant, mouth-watering desserts that are low in calories, salt, fat, and cholesterol. Deborah Kidushim-Allen, co-author of the popular Light Style: The New American Cuisine, shares a world of flavorful desserts that will gratify your sweet tooth and help keep you slim and healthy. These kitchen-tested, foolproof, diet-minded recipes offer an easy, step-by-step guide to preparing such delectable goodies as creamy Lemon Cheesecake, luscious Chocolate Mousse for fewer than 150 calories per serving, Bourma for half the calories and one-fourth the salt, souffles without cholesterol, Oranges in Grand Marnier, Strawberries Romanoff Supreme, Poached Pears in Chocolate Sauce, ice cream bombes, and old-fashioned sorbet -- all minus the extra calories, salt, fat, and cholesterol. 

Feast your eyes and tempt your palate with Profiteroles in Chocolate Sauce (small cream puffs filled with low-calorie vanilla ice cream from a simple, Light Desserts recipe, topped with a rich chocolate sauce and almonds), Glazed Summer- or Winter-Fruit Tartlets, Chocolate-Glazed Strawberry Meringues, Bavarian Mocha Cream, Crepes Suzette, and Peach Mousse -- and, in every case, one serving is low enough to fit comfortably into a weight-reducing plan of 1200 calories a day. 

Deborah Kidushim-Allen, a dietitian and nutrition consultant, provides calorie, salt, cholesterol, protein, fat, and carbohydrate content for each recipe, as well as a nutrient counter for all foods used. She also offers advice on equipment, cooking, and finishing touches; the secrets of sweetening with little or no sugar; and tips to help you "decalorize" your favorite dessert recipes and eliminate extra pounds. 

Light Desserts has the perfect dessert for every occasion in its traditional, seasonal, and festive recipes. Whether delighting your guests, treating your family, or simply indulging a craving for a rich dessert, you'll do it in the most delicious and healthful way with Light Desserts as your guide.
