    Last week, I found myself wanting a piece of cheesecake, but didn’t have the traditional graham crackers most people would use as a crust.  So I raided my pantry and came up with a fun and low-fat chocolate pretzel crust that tasted just as good. 

    Using a combination of low-fat and regular cream cheese with Greek yogurt, this recipe is a healthier version of the familiar (yet artery-clogging!) original.

    INGREDIENTS

    Crust
    1 cup crushed pretzels
    1 1/4 cup crushed animal crackers**

    This Thanksgiving, my husband got a little over zealous with his turkey-cooking responsibilities and smoked an extra bird.  So, with more than enough turkey in our refrigerator, we froze it in little packs and pull one out whenever I feel moved to try a new recipe.  This turkey soup was amazing!  It came out so good that my kids asked me to pack the leftovers in their lunch.  The best part is that it only took me 8 minutes to prepare and ...
