I usually have this as a treat (1/8 of a piece of "pie"), but today I had it for lunch instead, so I had 1/6 of a piece. It's my take on a zero point WW yogurt pie recipe that a friend of mine gave me. This version is made of plain Greek yogurt (4 C), 3 eggs, 2 boxes of sugar free Jello cheesecake pudding (mix only), and a couple scoops of vanilla Protein Powder.

it's topped with light Cool Whip and a strawberry compote I made by cooking down strawberries with some SF Torani Syrup (sometimes I use Splenda or Stevia instead) and a little vanilla and cinnamon. The strawberries kick out a lot of Water when they cook down, so I usually have to thicken it once it's done.

Fantastic looking! How long do we bake it and at what temp? Thanks.

350 F for about 40 minutes. Oh - and spray the pie pan with cooking spray before you pour the "batter" in - then it won't stick.

That reminds me of the fact that I wanted to give a vegan high Protein "cheese"cake a try since like the neolithic revolution came around or so.

I also stick it in the fridge for several hours - or overnight - before eating it. Just like a regular cheesecake...

Appreciate that you're curious about - and open to - exploring plant-based foods! That's a pretty good cookbook, too, one of a handful that we use regularly.

My kind, thoughtful daughter makes various energy bars for the family almost every week. She's only 13, but has already developed a great deal of capability in the kitchen (and elsewhere!). Years of massive kitchen waste and mess led to this point 😂, but it was all worth it because she'll carry these skills and this confidence in herself for the rest of her life. We just use a food-safe silicone mold to shape them: I've found that something like this is roughly the perfect size for virtually every kind of post-op treat.

Love the New Yorker and Bruce Kaplan. Thank you for that, and am attaching another of his cartoons in kind:

LOVE IT! A gal after my own heart. I could not live without my New Yorker magazine, cartoons + collection volumes in my library. I do cut, categorize and file them under food, relationships, design (like this one) and fashion etc. Use cartoons almost daily to share in a personal card, letter of agreements, client design notebooks, design statements and one weekly on kitchen cork board. A familiar and wonderful way of looking at life. Simply genius, really.

Does your daughter ship treats? Will place an order with her! LOL. What an amazing legacy. She sounds just like her mother - A true artisan of beauty and purpose, indeed.

We are planning to try out the blueberry chocolate bars and white bean Soup with best broth ever this weekend from www.nutritionstripped.com ;]

This was our lockdown project; repurposing an old storage shed on our property into a summer cottage-slash-studio, instead of tearing it down. It was a quick-ish job because we just wanted to be able to enjoy it this summer, but we're using it so often that we've decided we'd like to have it year-round, so are planning on insulation and drywall, new wiring, etc. as next steps. There's always tea or Soup on at the cottage!

What a rewarding project to embark upon. And, such a magical dreamy space! You must send progress pictures. Brings back very fond memories of our family northeast cabins built by my great-grandparents (unfortunately, sold off by rapacious relatives)... My favorite sleeping nook was much like above open window with cool summer breezes and fire flies flitting about. Great casement window details for such a renovation. Will you incorporate them?

Love this ❤

I have seen an influx of Fireflies recently (I have not seen so many since childhood) & I was presently surprised at the nostalgia it caused.

I've never been a huge Jello fan and hadn't had it since my surgery five years ago (the pre-op diet...), but someone on another forum eats sugar free Jello all the time - with light Cool Whip - as a snack or dessert. Since I seem to be having trouble controlling my snacking lately, I thought I'd give it a try. It's not bad - and it's sweet - and super low in calories. I picked up this coconut whipped topping that I saw the other day at Trader Joe's (I noticed that they also have it at Aldi's) - it's even lower in calories than light Cool Whip (10 calories per 2 tablespoons), and it has a nice, coconut-y taste to it. Voila! Just had this as my morning snack...

Great IDEA! And, at least you did not succumb to making Tomato aspic with meat stock! LOL.

Owned by the same family, but their parent companies split (not amicably) decades ago, became Aldi Sud & Aldi Nord. The operations of Trader Joe's & Aldi in the US are completely separate. Any overlap of products is a function of the private label industry vs. coordination. For example store brand hummus is likely to be either Tribe or Sabra. For most grocery categories there are a limited number of manufactures who have the scale to make private label in the quantities and at the price necessary.

Way more info then I'm sure anyone wanted 😂

Oh, and the Everything But The Bagel is $1.95 at my local Aldi. I have found that similar or identical items are always a bit cheaper at Aldi vs. TJ's

We miss you, Silly Kitty! Wha cha got cookin' of late?! Meow.

Today’s lunch is oatmeal banana pancakes with low cal maple Syrup, a drizzle of almond butter, walnuts, a broken down cluster of granola, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and raw cacao nibs. I also microwaved some berries and used it as a sauce. First time having pancakes in YEARS.

I'm coming over for lunch! We freeze and use our leftover pancakes made with banana, oatmeal and cottage cheese batter into quick, little sandwiches. This was lunch yesterday - egg salad with that hint of banana. Yum.
