New recipes and a new baby

He's a new baby. The tubes have made ALL the difference. Very limited screaming and LOTs of playing. I'm so happy for him!
Did I mention I'm a soccer coach? Yes, that's right and no, I've never played a day in my life.

I love cooking w/o recipes. Herein is the joy of cooking. I hope you cook w/o recipes too. There is no need-well--except for with desserts! Follow recipes to a T with desserts!

Eggplant Parmesan--easy style and SO good for you.

Slice desired amount of eggplant--I did 4 medium sized eggplants--about 1/3 inch thick. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 400* for 6 minutes a side. Add salt and pepper before roasting.

Layer roasted eggplant with jarred marinara sauce in greased 9X13, alternating layers, starting and beginning with sauce. (I used about 1/2 jar of sauce). Sprinkle top with Italian seasoning and black pepper. Top with shredded mozarella---however much you like. ( I do believe in shredding my own cheese--don't buy the pre-shredded if you can help it. The blocks are SO much better and you can use less). Seal with foil and bake at 350* for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Remove foil. Top with desired amount of grated Parmesan cheese. DON'T replace foil. Return to oven for 10 more minutes. So DELICIOUS and SO GOOD for ya!

Mo (a.k.a. Satch)meter--He gave this one a 10 before he started breaking out!
