A skinny blueberry cheesecake and a fig jam!

Have i got a cheesecake recipe that is low in fat, easy to make and if possible use fresh blueberries for the best and freshest flavor. Allow cheesecake to set overnight in the fridge, top with more fresh blueberries, a sprig of fresh mint and no one will know that this rich dessert is only 5.9 grams of fat!

Next i made a fig jam, and not your grandma’s jam either.

Fig jam is very popular among Lebanese people

It can be made from fresh or dried figs, honey, Sesame seeds,walnuts, fresh lemon juice, ground star anise, and mastic extract that comes from the pistachio tree. Fig jam can be spread on just about everything from brie or goat cheese, spread on a crusty baguette, add a few slices of smoked cheese

i’ll be posting these two delightful dishes tomorrow. So stay tuned!!!

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Cordero grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.

  1. I am not sure who created it, but a couple of weeks ago I had Baklava cheese cake!
    Baklava crust on the bottom and on the top too! So rich that three of us shared this one piece!

    as a child I once had fig jam. I wanted to eat the whole jar, but the gal who made it quiclky grabbed the jar and said a little goes a long way. Jam is like that. A little does go a long way :)
