I'm a retired chef, who just happens to have diabetes. So the recipies that I post here on "Just a Pinch" will be both diabetic and normal. Some will be recipies that I have collected over my 36 year career, some will be right out of my own coconut (head). This is my favorite dessert, bar none. I hope you enjoy it! Bon Appetite!
