When my husband, Rick, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, we started paying more attention to portion control and healthier meals. At first, I bought every diabetic cookbook I could find to support our new way of eating. I soon realized, with a few tweaks and a little creatively, I could adapt many of my own recipes without sacrificing the great taste. What follows is my version of the popular Heaven in Bowl recipe. It is rich, devilishly delicious, and sugar-free and can be found in our cookbook Sugar-Free and Simply Delicious
