I know that many of you are health conscious and shy away from carb filled dishes, which is why tonight's dinner is a perfect quick fix meal for those weary of extra carbs. It takes a highly familiar concept, chicken salad, and lightens it up. Instead of serving the salad slapped between two pieces of carb heavy bread, my recipe mounds the salad on top of an avocado half. The result makes for a light, summer meal that is ready in minutes.

I am definitely of two minds when it comes to baking "lite" desserts. While I am all for dessert it better be worth it. Plus, I fear that if a dessert is "lite" I just might think I can over indulge. With all that in mind, I took on the task of "cleaning up" the Coconut Cream Cake posted by PartySugar. I must say the cake tasted great. My husband loved it. I served it to guests and they too were complimentary (or maybe just being polite - who knows!!!)
While my cake did not quite look like the cake pictured (I just made a two layer cake), the frosting was lumpier since it contained pecan pieces, it didn't photograph well. I need to work on my food styling skills.
I hope you try the recipe and if you do I would love to hear about your results. To see the recipe just read more
