Congrats on how well you've done so far! Good for you.
Check out the recipe section on the board for a few things...
Personally, I found a recipe that feels like a rich chocolate cheesecake! Essentially, you make a ricotta creme... except use half ricotta and half 1% cottage cheese, blend in the blender with a splash of vanilla, Splenda, cocoa powder. Put in oven, bake at 350 until the top cracks -- I think it was about 25 mins but you have to play it by ear, I think.
Anyway, it was as much like a "real" dessert as I've found. To die for!
