Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Vegetable Tian

Here's another recipe that seems to have gone viral on Facebook.....and another recipe that people keep posting/sharing but no one seems to make! Well, once again, I did!!! This is really good. I asked my husband to rate it.....1 being 'yucky' and 5 being 'scrumptious'......he rated it a 4! I rated it a 5!!!

Makes 6 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

1 TBSP olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1 medium yellow squash, thinly sliced
1 medium potato, thinly sliced
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
1 tsp thyme
salt & pepper to taste
1 cup shredded Italian cheese

Preheat oven to 400ยบ.

Saute' onion & garlic in olive oil until softened, @5 minutes.

Spray the inside of an 8x8” baking dish. Spread the onion/garlic in the bottom. Place the other veggies vertically in the dish, alternating to look 'pretty'. Season with thyme, salt & pepper.

Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes.

Remove foil, top with cheese and bake uncovered for 15 – 20 minutes more or until the cheese is golden brown.

MY SPIN: I used a red onion because that's what I had on hand. I discovered that I didn't have any thyme so I used Herbes de Provence. I would use a lot more garlic....but that's a personal preference. I think I would also put some Italian seasoning on the cheese.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
