Reviews for Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits
"This recipe is WONDERFUL!!! Strawberries... cheesecake taste... fast to make and a nice way to use strawberries! Fat is good for you as long as it's a good fat! I don't know why people write reviews on recipes based on their nutritional value. If you don't want cheesecake, which is always high in fat unless you use fat-free ingredients (NO THANKS), then look for a different dessert to suit your special diet."
"This recipe looks very pretty, but at 618 calories and 32 grams of fat for such a small dessert, you can keep it!"
