I’ve avoided venturing into the kitchen and hovering over the stove while temperatures in this area continue to climb into the unbearable. Temperatures this weekend were somewhat tolerable so I decided to show some love to my oven and bake something.
Last month I joined the Secret Recipe Club, created by Amanda of Amanda’s Cookin’. The idea behind this club is to give bloggers the chance to try each others recipes without the other bloggers knowing it until the assigned publish date. Each blogger is assigned a “secret” blog and asked to make a recipe from that blog.
This month I was assigned to make something from Debbie Does Dinner. She writes about dinners that are delicious and filling and yet simple and only around 500 calories. She also has a couple not so healthy things thrown into too. Perfect!
I had never been to Debbi’s blog before which is part of the reason why I joined the Secret Recipe Club. As I mentioned last month, I joined the club because I want to meet “new-to-me” bloggers and force myself to work with recipes outside of my normal rotation. Since I committed to using my oven I picked one of Debbi’s baked dishes.
This was only my second time making vegetable lasagna. My first attempt was when I just started blogging. I wasn’t even taking pictures of my food yet. I can’t imagine posting anything now without at least one picture of what I was writing about. Too funny.
Debbi’s lasagna was everything I was looking for. Easy to assemble, healthy and it had some ingredients I had not incorporated into my first attempt. I would highly recommend this recipe.
