Yet whether it's Lemon Chess Pie from the 1820s, Black and White Cookies first baked up in the Roaring 1920s or Frozen Grasshopper Pie from the 1950s, some desserts have stood the test of time. Now you can enjoy them with a modern in- fluence thanks to Canola- Info's =Decades of Decadence" recipe collection by Ellie Krieger, M.S., R.D., host of the Cooking Channel's "Healthy Appetite." Krieger updates six iconic desserts with heart-healthy ingredients such as canola oil, low-fat yogurt and whole- grain flour to help keep calo- ries in check and saturated fat content low. Each deca- dent dessert has less than 400 calories per serving and is made with canola oil, which has the least saturated fat and most omegao3 fat of all common culinary oils. "Simple ingredient swaps like canola oil for butter and Greek yogurt for cream lighten up desserts without taking away from their indulgent taste,  says Krieger. "Everyone should be able to enjoy a dessert once in a while and these recipes make it easy to do so. Recipes from different eras help us remember and celebrate those times. Such culinary traditions are a huge part of the joy of cook- ing and baking.  The classic cake here was made famous by women's magazines after canned pineapple became available in slices. The recipe here gets a fresh, healthy update with canola oil keeping it moist, The upside of dessert: Pineapple Upside Down Cake may have first become popular in the 1930s, but a more health- ful version is a treat today. light and low in saturated fat; the addition of tender, whole grain pastry flour;, and a lovely kick of crystallized ginger to mingle with the pineapple in the caramelized topping.
