Spaghetti and Meatballs

So I think I have stressed how much I love taking fatty food and making it low fat and healthy but have I stressed my other passion?  I love getting this done in under an hour!  That’s right; spaghetti and meatballs that are low fat and done in under an hour.  I’m the modern day nonna except I’m 34 … and blond!  Besides being healthy… this is a great dish for a special occasion, like say, New Years Eve!  Happy New Year everyone!

Cinnamon Buns with a Sticky, Yummy, Unforgettable Glaze that makes you Glad You’re Alive, Glaze

Tis the season for baking but the amount of butter and sugar in cinnamon buns is really, really not helping anyone's waistline.   So I set out to change the world of naughty cinnamon buns and this is what I came up with.   These are gooey and yummy without being overly sweet.  Since I added a super sweet glaze, I was able to cut a lot of sugar out of the dough and the rolls, and you can't even tell!

Good Old Fashioned Meatloaf
