I'm searching all kinds of cookbooks for low-fat and no-fat variations of the foods I love so I can make this a plan for life instead of a "Diet".

I am a snacker, a muncher,a drooler over rich,gooey,salty,crunchy and yes...SWEET stuff.

So thought I would share some of my favorites with all you people who are in this same crowded boat with me,
