If Loving Dessert Is Wrong, I Don't Wanna Be Right.

Please don't tell me not to love dessert. I've eaten my salads, watched my calories, cut way down on sodium and carbs, and I excercise daily (almost).  After finishing a skimpy little healthy dinner, my mouth is begging for more, for something sweet.  Not much, just a couple of yummy little bites will do it.  Now folks, if that's wrong, I honestly don't want to hear about it!...more
