Today is my fifth anniversary with the Secret Recipe Club. Wow. The club has seen a lot of changes since I started. Three different head honchos, going from three to four, and then back to three groups. Add in several group coordinator changes, various bloggers leaving and new ones joining and the fifth Monday themed reveals and it looks so different than when I started.
But I adore being part of the SRC and look forward to my Monday of the month and hope to be part of the group for awhile longer.

My assignment for this month was Morsels of Life. I used to host Inspire Me Mondays with CJ and a few other bloggers. The link party is still around but I had to step down as host.

As I read through CJ’s blog looking for recipes I bookmarked chipotle mayonnaise , because we love spicy food here and yum, and chicken tortas.

I made little lasagnas because we haven’t had lasagna in forever. I will admit to being skeptical because I have tried recipes with baked wonton wrappers before and I wasn’t a fan. I also wasn’t entirely certain that a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce was going to create enough sauce.

We were quite pleasantly surprised with how delicious the finished dish was. Layering all the little cups of lasagna was a little more time consuming than I thought it would be but the short bake time still had dinner ready in about 45 minutes.

    GREAT SRC choice!
    (congrats on 5years with SRC!!!)

  2. Looks delicious. Has it been 5 years? I’ve been around almost since the beginning. I need to go look now and see when my first post was. I love this recipe, lasagne is so much work I don’t make it often but I love this version. Happy reveal day.

  3. These seem so fun and delicious.

  4. I had to check and see when my first post with the SRC happened. July 2011 so it’s been 5 years for me as well. Wow! I love that a bechamel is still used on the individual cups!

  5. This looks yummy!

    Congrats on your 5 years with SRC.
