Okay, so does anyone else wait until they are on a diet to go totally cookbook crazy? As soon as I think I'm on a diet, I start thinking about everything I can bake! Particularly pie. Lately, it's really been hard to not think about pie. Sometimes it's cake or cookies, but this week, pie. There's even a cookbook called Pie! With a lattice-crust one on the cover. And all it has in it is, you guessed it, pie. I've never even made a pie. I don't even have a rolling pin. And I have no idea why I'm so obsessed with pie lately. I am thinking of getting some apples and sauteing them with a little butter and cinnamon sugar to take the edge off this craving.

On the healthy side, Cooking Light's cookbook Fresh Food Fast looks very good, and there are pictures of all of the food, even including some desserts. Sadly, there is no pie. But there is a very nice-looking raspberry-lemon parfait that uses lemon yogurt. I'm leaving the angel food cake out of it because I'd probably scarf down most of the cake with the carbolicious mood I'm in lately. Just to clarify, I am not on a low-carb diet, I just try to eat sensible portions of refined carbs and make most of my grains whole grains.

And a shout out to present and future SparkFriends: Any healthy cookbook recommendations are always a plus, leave your faves in the comments!

    Sigh!! Darn you! I see the word PIE and what do I do? I come running over red rover!
    I totally understand. It's like cravings are unearthed from who knows where!?!
    Cooking Light- when I was able to bake, I liked their stuff, but the recipes were soooo complicated. And having 12 servings of pie on my fridge was not good!

    About 10 years ago I found the Hungry Girl site and love how they revamp stuff fairly easily.
    I KNOW you can find a simple apple pie (single serving) dessert that wont break the calorie bank!
    Good luck and ...let me know how it goes ok?
