Desserts are low fat, but luscious as ever

What do upside-down apple pie, peach and tart cherry shortcakes and chocolate mousse a l'orange have in common, besides being scrumptious desserts? They're all low-fat -- and -- there are 147 more recipes where those come from, in the "The Eating Well Dessert Cookbook" (Eating Well Books, $15.95). Recipes are extensively tested and have just 3 to 7 grams of fat. A profile of Chesapeake Bay, a guide to its edible denizens such as blue crabs, rockfish and oysters, along with 12 recipes are part of an expanded brochure on Maryland seafood. For a free copy, write: "Consumer's Guide to Maryland Seafood," Maryland Seafood Marketing, 50 Harry S Truman Parkway, Annapolis, Md.
