Things don’t always work as planned…


Tonight we had roast pork loin and cabbage for dinner.  It was too spicy so I have to continue to work on this recipe before I share it with you.  I did, however, bake a low fat cheesecake that I think is worth your time to try.  I am not a big fan of cheesecake but I really enjoy this because it is nothing like the dense kind that makes me feel like I am eating cream cheese from the tub.  Enjoy & Happy Cooking!!
