Cooking for One: 29 Insanely Easy, Healthy Meals You Can Make In Minutes In the kitchen, one can be the loneliest number.

Naked Apple Pie Recipe March 2, 2011 Here at Snack Girl headquarters clothing is optional (for the 4 and under set). This is also true of our pies. I learned of the "Naked" pie concept when I made a mistake. One night, while making an apple pie, I chopped too many apples to fit into my pie crust. So, I just tossed the apples into a bread pan and cooked them along side the pie. Guess what? I like the NAKED pie better than the real pie that I had baked. And, I learned that "going crustless" meant that I could skip an entire step of apple pie baking! Making a pastry crust is pretty easy if you have a food processor, but do I really have time to be making pie crusts? Now, you could have told me to add butter, oats, and sugar to the top to make an apple crumble. In the recipe below, I have included 3 spices to make the pie really flavorful. For Weight Watchers followers, this pie has a whopping 1 Points+ per serving. I made 2 pie plates so 1/4 pie is a serving in this recipe. print 2K+ Naked Apple Pie Recipe

Using applesauce in place of sugar can give the necessary sweetness without the extra calories and, well, sugar. 4. Don’t knock this one till you’ve tried it. 5.

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas So we’re I’m kind of flip-flopping my posts here–this recipe really belongs back in January with all the healthy recipes and Monday’s French Toast really belongs here today because, let’s face it, legumes tossed in garlic are not the most romantic little things in the world, no matter how tasty they are. Sara and I are flying to Utah and back this weekend, so we might be a little slow responding to emails and questions. Well…slow-er. I’ve also found that in the past few weeks, crowds and pants make me grumpy, so, in an effort to prevent me from saying things I might regret, I’m bringing lots of healthy snacks with me, lest I find myself foodless, trapped next to crazy people (I seem to have unbelievable luck in very often sitting next to weirdos on airplanes) in a pair of uncomfortable pants. I adapted this recipe from What’s Gaby Cooking. You’ll need some extra-virgin olive oil, kosher salt, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cumin, and a 15-ounce can of garbanzo beans.

Recipe for Meat, Tomato, and Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini Cups (For Phase One Fridays I highlight Phase One recipes from the past that have been my personal favorites. It's monster zucchini season here and last Friday I spotlighted Monster Zucchini and Basil Strata. This recipe for zucchini Meat, Tomato, and Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini Cups uses "cups" created from slices of overly-large zucchini, and this is another of my very favorite things to make when the zucchini gets out of control. Enjoy!) Despite the rather messy plating job, I'm excited about this new way of making stuffed zucchini by slicing an overly-large zucchini into two-inch slices, then hollowing out the slices to make zucchini "cups." Normally I'm a fan of round 8-ball squash for Stuffed Zucchini, but this year my 8-Ball squash hardly produced anything. Start by sauteing onion, green pepper, and garlic for a few minutes in a bit of olive oil. Then mix in about 2 cups of flavorful tomato sauce and let it simmer until all the liquid has cooked off.
