We find a new family of non-supersymmetric numerical solutions of IIB supergravity which are dual to the N = 1 cascading "conifold" theory perturbed by certain combinations of relevant single trace and marginal double trace operators with non innitesimal couplings. The SUSY is broken but the resulting ground states, and their gravity duals, remain stable, at least perturbatively. Despite the complicated field theory dynamics the gravity solutions have a simple structure. They feature the Ricci-flat non-Kähler metric on the deformed conifold and the imaginary self-dual three-form flux accompanied by a constant dilaton.
