Delicious 100-Calorie Snacks

I finished reviewing the 100-Calorie Snack Cookbook yesterday. A great helpful little weight loss tool, the 100-Calorie Snack Cookbook by Sally Sampson contains tasty and inventive low-cal recipes. For instance, Sally's recipe for Lemon Meringue Cookies makes 4 servings of 4 cookies each. Four cookies for 100 calories! Yeah!

I'd never tried a Greek Pizza before - anywhere - and was really impressed by the flavor. I decided to try to make my own low-calorie version. And I did! It weighs in at a slim 165 calories. I like that!

Helpful tip - Blackberry Curve

Do you have a Blackberry Curve? Are you having trackball issues? I've had my Blackberry Curve for quite a few months now, and I started having issues with the trackball being able to track left. Then, I started having issues with the trackball being able to track down. I realized I'd have to remove the trackball and clean it. Thankfully, the designers of the Blackberry Curve had made that quite simple:

Cookies, pie and tarts - oh my!

When Larabar sent me a sample pack to review, I was delighted. I have always liked Larabars. They're made with quality ingredients and contain no added sugars. For someone like me who cannot eat refined sugars, they are a real find.
