For those of you who do the yogurt trick, that one where you pretend that eating a yogurt is just as good as a delicious piece of chocolate cake (it so doesn't work does it?), try Yoplait's Red Velvet Cake variety. I was skeptical at first - I mean, a cake in a yogurt? But yum, yum, yummy. It's no Stefanie's Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake, but it has far less calories and works as well as any cake avoiding trick I know. (Meaning that most tricks don't work. Let's be honest.)
For those of you who don't have to count calories, please go try Stefanie's Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake. And eat a piece for me. Heaven. (Seriously - just click that link. And try resisting.) And for those of you who aren't near a Cheesecake Factory, my condolences.
For those of you who like salt and vinegar potato chips, try Lay's Dill Pickle version (really similar - with a little extra flavor to go with all that salt). I thought my sister-in-law was nuts - eating chips flavored like pickles. Ew? But it's one of those things where you try one, and you can't stop. The salt may be burning a hole through your tongue, yet your hand just keeps dipping into that bag of salty goodness.
For those of you (like me) who are obsessed with Johnson's Bedtime Bath soap - Belle will be bathed in it until she's thirty - try Johnson's Melt Away Stress Moisturizer. Yes, I realize that they just re-packaged the scent into an adult container, but I FELL FOR IT. AND I SMELL DELICIOUS.
And for those of you who forgot how stinking cute this kid is...
