Sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding made with low-fat milk makes a good low-calorie fruit dip. I had a neighbor who prepared this as a low-cal treat for her diabetic husband. Faye H., Gresham, Oregon
""Aunt Ruth" was our nanny when I was little. She made this cheesecake often, many times as an after school project so I could help her. It was torture when my sister and I had to wait until the next day to have a piece since it had to chill overnight. Recently I visited my old neighborhood and stopped by her house. Sure enough, she offered me a piece of her wonderful cheesecake. I made sure to leave with a copy of the recipe!"
