The votes are in and Italian wedding soup won but unfortunately I made it on my terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad-day. So I didn't get any pictures, I can't remember exactly how I made it and honestly did not turn out "blog worthy". I apologize to change the "game" but I got this comment "Julie, I could use ideas for a healthier choice dessert. In the summer we eat fesh fruit but, that's not available. Pie has become a mainstay & it is taking a toll on the weight. Help! "
I decided to do this post on a few desserts Julified. Next week I will faithfully post the winning recipe!
