Thinking Valentines…Chocolate Silk Tart
Valentines Day is just around the corner and I found a recipe for a Chocolate Silk Tart that is low in calories, fat, and even carbs. Most women I know love chocolate. Instead of giving that box of chocolate, make a chocolate recipe that will suit her waist line. As much as I love chocolate, I do not want a box of chocolate for valentines Day.
