You may wonder why anyone would want to make a "cheesecake" without cheese. The answer is simple: It gives those on a nondairy diet the opportunity to indulge. This is the idea behind Snap Kitchen (3600 Kirby, 713-526-5700), a new, healthy, takeout food emporium. The peanut butter "cheesecake" ($3.75) is also gluten-free and lower in sodium than regular cheesecake. It has a wonderful bottom crust made of dates, pecans and coconut, with a layer of smooth peanut butter on top. One bite is enough to convince you that you're not missing out on a thing.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
