“My mom used to make a recipe like this when I was younger. I decided to make some healthy changes, and this version is as good, if not better than the original. Being a dietitian, I love to come up with ways to lighten up recipes. I would bake all the time if I could!” Jackie Termont - Elkhart, Indiana
