I did let this one rest, and it wasn't watery, and even better the next day! I also cooked the sauce much longer than called for, witch simmered much of the liquid away. This is so easy to assemble, I'll be making variations on the theme again.

I don't like it when my lasagna is watery either. I've found that if I let it rest a little before I cut it, that helps. What a sweet friend! I need a friend with a garden!

I had made this Fresh Tomato Lasagna www.myrecipes.com/recipe/fresh-tomat
o-
lasagna-10000000604718/
from a Cooking Light recipe a few weeks ago, and it was really good, but a bit watery. I probably should have cooked the sauce longer, but since I was using no boil noodles, I figured they would absorb the extra moisture.

So yesterday I used the basic recipe, but put in some fresh veggies a Spark friend had given me last weekend from her garden, some Japanese eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes along with some canned peeled tomatoes. This one was much less watery and also tasty! I didn't have the basil, so used an Italian seasoning I had made from the Sparkpeople cookbook awhile back. This is a really easy lasagna to make, since it's only 3 layers, and using the no boil noodles worked fine, but I did bake it longer than it says, just to make sure the noodles were soft.

I'm looking forward to perusing the blogs and posted recipes, they all sounds great!

I'm also going to try to make another lasange this week (or weekend), a Spark friend gave me a bunch of produce from her garden, so I think I can make a sauce out of it, lots of peppers, tomatoes and some eggplant....

Mock Coconut Custard Pie

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an oven tempered glass 9” pie plate with non-stick spray and set aside.

Ingredients:

2 cups of milk
3 large eggs
2 to 3 cups of cooked spaghetti squash
¾ cup Splenda (or other sweetener to equal ¾ cup sugar)
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (optional)
2 Tablespoons + coconut extract OR 1 Tablespoon Lorann coconut flavoring oil*

With a whisk, beat eggs thoroughly. Add milk, sweetener, salt and flavoring and mix well. Run a sharp knife through the strands of spaghetti squash several times to cut strands into smaller, coconut sized pieces. Place spaghetti squash in bottom of pie plate, spreading to cover bottom of pie plate. Pour custard mixture over squash. Place pie plate in preheated oven, and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until the pie is golden and passes the knife test (a clean knife inserted in pie comes out clean) or the jiggle test (with a pot holder, slightly shake the pie pan from side to side – the middle of the pie should jiggle slightly, and will continue to cook as pie cools). Remove pie from oven and let cool.

*Coconut extract is not concentrated, and “bakes out” of the pie. Lorann food and candy flavoring oils makes a Coconut flavoring oil that is very concentrated, and has no alcohol and will not bake out.

I've been sorta obsessed with Moroccan recipes lately--because they're so dang delicious! I've actually put a couple of Moroccan cookbooks on my wish list; probably one would be adequate, but I couldn't decide between them.

In the meantime, I've been saving this one, for spicy carrot & chickpea tagine. Tonight I'm taking dinner to a Nepali couple from my church who just had a baby. Going to double the recipe--or at least multiply it x 1.5--so I have some left for the coming week! As usual, I'll post a link to my blog once I review it. I'll probably serve over quinoa to up the protein.

IAMAGEMLOVER you might like the SparkPeople cookbook or look up clean eating on YouTube and you'll find a lot of easy and very good recipes that do save well OR that are just for one person. The site I have been using does have meals for one person. Go to youtube and look up leansecrets. Some good videos are the best pizza ever, 5 Dinners, 5 breakfasts, etc. All portioned out for one person

I was looking for an eggplant bread recipe, but only found two, one that uses a whole cup of honey and I have no idea if I can use splenda rather than honey. The other was more of a savory eggplant bread with garlic, and such. Anyone have a good eggplant bread recipe?

I love cooking and make a variety of recipes and post them on my website, I also write about my journey with weight loss. In 2010 I lost 75 pounds, but in the past year I have regained 35 pounds and my blood count for pre diabetes sky rocketed. Since June I have been on a mission to lose that 35 pounds and have succeeded in losing 21.4 as of today. I found that blogging on my website about my journey has helped me face my unhealthy relationship with food. I would love for you to join me on my journey.

I eat most meats. The only thing I will never eat is seafood. The only fish I eat is tuna and that is very rarely because I have to drown it in mayonnaise like 1/2 c or more. I would not eat fish if it was to save my life. Even the smell makes me sick. I have made a few of the SP recipes and love the turkey meatloaf. I have the cookbook and tried some of the recipes but they seemed very bland to me and unfulfilling. I tried roasting potatoes once in my oven and almost set the kitchen on fire. I miss my son, he was a chef, not professionally but a great cook. He cooked and I cleaned up..

I won't be able to participate in the game much as I'm working a new job where I'm crazy busy! I'll try to pop in and share new recipes though.

I will say, I cook for one all the time since my other half travels on weekdays. What I do is make a 4 serving batch of something on Sunday night, and that becomes Sunday night dinner, plus lunch for 3 days that week. Then, I cook other meals throughout the week that are either meals for 4 cut in half (very easy to do), or meals that are designed for two people to begin with. It's not difficult to just add a pinch of something instead of dividing up a teaspoon. (BTW, 4 servings of 1tsp is 1/4 tsp, which most measuring spoon sets have a spoon for :)). I also find it easy to cook up an individual chicken breast or pork chop (I marinate often in buttermilk, yum!), and have it with a handful of fresh green beans that I've blanched, and a single red skin potato that I've chopped up and roasted. You just have to pick items that are easy to have for one. Frozen veggies work well for this too.

I also sometimes freeze portions of what I make. Like, I made some lasagna rolls 2 weeks ago that makes 6 servings. I ate 4 of them throughout the week, and froze the other 2. Now I have 2 servings ready to go in the freezer for when I get home late and am too tired to cook, or when I find I don't have enough leftovers for a lunch.

Working on maintaining at 140!

I often batch cook and freeze meals ahead. In between those meals I make one-night meals like fish or an occasional steak. I also only make homemade pizza - healthier and use it for a couple evenings (can also be frozen but it doesn't happen in my house - pizza is gone)!

What about freezing the leftovers to use instead of your Lean Cuisines? It would taste better and probably be healthier food as well. I take my leftovers to work, and have not had a frozen entree (I used to eat quite a few!) in months now. Casseroles freeze well, lasagna, etc. You could make your own lean cuisines...just be creative, and use ingredients that are like the frozen dinners you enjoy.

Today I made butternut squash soup, the butternut, an onion, low sodium chicken stock, curry powder, salt and pepper. Cooked it up, pureed in the blender and it's done!

I eat frozen dinners, Lean Cuisine, Healthy Choice, Smart Ones, you get the idea. I need to start cooking, but I don't like left overs. How do you take a recipe for 4 and make it for one. You can't take 1 tsp of something and divide by 4 or a pinch of something. How does this work. I don't have any recipes because I don't cook.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust - a friend made it and sent me the picture, omg did it look deliicious. One cauliflower makes one pizza, I make it rectangular on a baking sheet since I don't own a pizza stone. I calculated that each piece was 90 calories before you put toppings on it. Along with the veggies and olives, I put a cup of shredded cheese on the pizza (divide that by six and you've got your calorie count - I thought that was very reasonable for getting to eat pizza!) I did have two pieces and made a Moroccan lentil soup as well which I didn't need since I found this to be very satisfying. I will definitely be making this again.

Kids and hubby had some, they liked it.

I will be making these pumpkin cookies this weekend. My daughter's birthday is on Monday and she asked for the cookies instead of a cake, but wants chocolate chips instead of the raisins, so I will use mini chocolate chips so that they go farther. Calorie count will be about the same.

Sounds like it will be right up my alley and pretty easy to put together. I'll post a link to my review once I make and sample it!

This looks like a great idea! I'm looking forward to getting some new recipes and meal ideas because meal planning is a challenge for me.

I've missed this--thanks for starting it back up, Amanda! I'm living (deliciously) by myself now, so I'm not cooking quite as often. A monthly format will work well for me.

Healthy urban living in Chicago (Central Time)--lots of walking, train & bus commuting, CSA freggies in the summer & fall!

This is a fun way to try new healthy recipes and to get ideas by seeing what everyone else tried. You are all welcome to participate (or lurk!). We used to do this every couple weeks, but I've decided to try a monthly format.

Step 1 - Pick and post a recipe!
This can be a recipe from an online source, a cook book, or a magazine. Post the link here or if you are reproducing it from a paper source, do that here. The general idea is to try something new. This round can be any recipe you like. In other rounds we may do categories (beef, soup, dessert, etc.) Here are some great websites to browse...
www.sparkrecipes.com
ww-recipes.net/
www.3fatchicks.com/diet-recipes/
www.skinnytaste.com/
www.cookinglight.com/

Step 2 - Make recipe and EAT!! emoticon
My favorite step by far! This step will also include some prep work for your review. Ask your family (if applicable) what they thought of the recipe. Note any changes that you made or would make if you were to prepare the recipe again. Maybe even snap a pic of your delicious dish.

Step 3 - Review!
On your sparkpeople blog, review your recipe. Include a link to your recipe for folks who aren't playing the game. Post the picture if you took one. Describe any changes you made or would make if you made it again. Was it a hit with the kids? Would the leftovers make a great lunch? Maybe it was a flop and you ended up throwing it all out. You get the gist. Come back to this thread and post a link to your blog so we all can "Ooooh and Aaaah" over your recipe! If the website that you got the recipe from has reviews, comment there so that even more folks can benefit from your awesomeness. Read other people's reviews and comment on their blogs. You never know, you might stumble across your new favorite recipe!

The idea is to post a recipe, make, and review in October. Then I will start a new thread for November and we will start all over! You may have so much fun that you do several recipes in October. Have at it!!

Let's have fun trying new recipes! If you have any questions, be sure to ask! You can ask here or sparkmail me.

~Mandy~
