I think everyone has his or her favorite lemon cookie recipe. Well, here's one of mine. This particular recipe is a softer more cake-like cookie. Soft with a nice lemon flavor. These are made with mostly whole-wheat pastry flour, which is a nice light flour and has fiber as well. These are easy to make and really delicious. Hope you give them a try and maybe they will become one of your fa

Eva the little one is the same age as my Josh. Both will be turning seven this summer. They were born four days apart. (I know my big sister wished she could have been in two places at once that year) We celebrate their birthdays to

If you have been on our blog, you will see we have a few French toast recipes. They were a huge hit with viewers.

This recipe was inspired by a trip I took with my girlfriends when we were in our twenties while I was living in Atlanta. My roommate Jenny was a manager of a gourmet chocolate shop so she would bring home chocolates almost every day! Can you imagine eating a different kind of yummy, decadent chocolate every single day!? One weekend Jenny and a few of my friends took a trip to Hilton H

Do you remember going to the bakery and seeing those pretty lace cookies staring at you though the glass showcase with all the other pretty cookies? One of my favorites was always the lace ones. They had dark, milk or white chocolate in the middle. Once in a while they came with jam in the middle. My mom always liked to buy lace cookies because she told me they made a nice presentation and we
These are so gooey and sticky! I added some wheat germ with the oatmeal for some added texture and flavor. Great for a special breakfast or ready for the kids when they get off the bus. The house smells so wonderful when I bake these treats.

A quick story behind these muffins: my husband loves carrot cake. He asked me to make some carrot muffins to take to his office for everyone to snack on throughout the day. I also thought this would be good for the kids as well because it is great way to get veggies into their diet. I happened to have a small zucchini in the fridge at the time and decided to grate that into the b
Hi All, I wanted to make this recipe for friends that are on a gluten free diet. I worked on this a long time before it was good enough to share. Gluten free is not always low in fat, so, it was a challenge again (See our other Gluten Free recipes) to make a great cookie that everyone can enjoy. From the positive response I got from family and friends, it's a go! These cookies come out ni
My husband and I were having dinner in a really nice restaurant recently, I wanted something light for dessert, the waiter suggested I try strawberries with balsamic glaze. I said I always wanted to know what that would taste like but never could understand the combination between the two flavors. Oh my gosh! It was so decadent and light all at the same time. Here is my very easy versi
I recently made these around Easter. They reminded me of the Cadbury chocolate eggs. I wanted to make this into a cookie with a candy filling and this is what I came up with. I'm using one of my favorite products. Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. We all liked the slightly salty cookie crust with the sweet and creamy filling. On top of all that, they are so cute!

Hello friends, here is another granola bar recipe that was a huge hit with my family. I made these the other night. The whole family went to bed and I just was not tired. I went to the pantry and thought about making one of the granola bars that's already on the blog. I started taking out ingredients and saw a brand new bag of organic sunflower seeds. So, I took it from there. My whole fam
This is another great smoothie that I love. I used fresh spinach just like I did in a prior smoothie recipe I posted. Why not add some fresh veggies whenever possible, even in a smoothie? I know what you’re thinking, “spinach in a smoothie?” You won't taste the spinach -- I promise. Everyone who I have made this for (and my other smoothies with spinach) does not taste it. The onl
When you take a bite of this cheesecake, you will not believe it is lower in fat and calories than a full fat version.

You have probably seen similar twists in the mall but those are loaded with much more fat and calories than in my twists. This recipe is very easy, and skinny! You can serve it for breakfast, brunch or with a hot cup of tea. When I make these cinnamon twists they are gone in minutes and are best when they are warm from the oven. If you eat them later on, warm up in the microwave for
You will love how easy and delish this cake is. Since this cake is made with baby food carrots, you don't even need to grate any carrots for this cake (but if you want to grate carrots, check out our healthy zucchini carrot muffins). Carrots are loaded with antioxidants and there is a nice amount of fiber per piece of cake. I didn't add any oil or butter to this recipe and it

Whenever we go out for dinner with the kids, my son Josh always asks for seltzer with 2 Maraschino cherries. So this recipe was made especially for him. When I gave him a brownie, I didn't tell him what was in them. He took one bite and said " mommy, it's cherries, the ones I love in my seltzer! " Well, needless to say, he loved them and so did my daughter Tori and my husband

So friends, here is another Nutella recipe. Come on... is there anything better? I just gave a friend a small spoonful of Nutella right out of the jar. She had never even heard of it (imagine that!) and she went crazy for it! I told her everything in moderation; don't make this a habit but use this great product in some of her desserts. While she was here, I whipped this up and I ended up
We all have our own recipe for popcorn balls. So why not one that is a little more skinny but still sassy and full of the gooey rich tastes as always? Here is my version.

I got an extra popcorn ball out

I recently made these while my whole family was home and my niece Cara and her longtime boyfriend John were over. Since we recently moved into our new home, John offered to help my husband hang some of our paintings. I knew I had to make him something special. Cara always told me he has a real sweet tooth and loves peanut butter. So I thought this one up while they were doing their hanging.

I have wanted to make another peanut butter cookie for you that would be gluten free, since our first PB cookie has been a huge hit. The problem is peanut butter does have a lot of fat. I needed to cut the fat to be able to put this recipe up on Skinny Sweets Daily.

Well, I said to my husband and kids that I know I can figure out a way to make this luscious s
I first saw a similar recipe to this on one of Sandra Lee's Food Network shows. The only problem is she used full fat cream cheese and lots of butter. I liked the idea of the cookie but needed to work on getting the fat and calories way down without compromising the taste and texture of the cookie. So here is my skinny version that doesn't taste skinny at all, but it is! Yay!
