Tuesdays With Dorie – Peanuttiest Blondies (and Broccoli Lasagna Bianca)

Hello friends! I made blondies and lasagna, and then I typed the names of them in the subject line as best I could remember.

This is the peanuttiest blondie. These came out perfectly and tasted delicious.

peanuttiest lasagna named after a rescuer

This is my first ever lasagna. The recipe that I used was from a vegetarian cookbook that fancies itself “healthy.” What that means is that you use egg beaters instead of eggs and fat-free ricotta instead of real cheese. It leaves you with something that’s kind of lacking but for 250 calories for a mighty slab of lasagna is not bad.

One essentlal missing ingredient: salt. Not in the recipe at all. As a recipe stickler, I didn’t put any in, but that was a big mistake. I shouldn’t have to garnish my food with salt later. It should come out flavorful.

I’d make it again since the prep is fairly easy and the leftovers go a long way, but I’d use some real, fatty ingredients and spice it up a bit more somehow.

My next trick will be to pull out my pasta maker and actually make the noodles myself. May Grodd have mercy on us all.

peanuttiest half-bearded man

This is my Halloween costume – I went as Good Twin/Bad Twin. My clothes also fit the bill, as Rachel ripped up one side and smeared it with all manner of foul-smelling stuff. After a work day of smelling like yellow mustard, I was ready to throw in the towel.

This is Rachel’s costume. That’s a straight-up Beetlejuice ghost, mofos.

This is Harley’s costume. Playing for the wrong team.

peanuttiest ape advice

This is APE ETIQUETTE at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Enough said.

I also spent my non-gym, non-baking portion of the night reading a chunk of Grant Morrison’s run on JLA and it’s really good and OH CRAP YOU ALL LEFT ALREADY.
