GREEK YOGURT CREAM CHEESE LEMON COFFEE CAKE

So I’m sure you’ve heard of a sweet tooth before? In fact, you might even have one yourself. My sweet tooth really flares up when I am pregnant. With my first little guy, my sweet tooth was so bad I had a major bill to pay at the dentist when it was all said and done.

As in SEVEN cavities. Yikes.

My dentist kept trying to figure out why all of the sudden my teeth were rotting out of my head.

He asked if I drank a lot of soda. No.

How about sugary coffee? No.

Suck on a lot of mints? No.

Then I confessed, “I am mildly addicted to Jujubees.” Mystery solved.
