Chocolate Nut Zucchini Bread

Share

One of my favorite cooking magazines is called Fine Cooking. I subscribe to their email newsletter, which is where I found this recipe. Having made it several times now, it’s being officially added to my rotation of quick breads. It’s not overly sweet, and it’s not overly chocolatey either, with just 1/3 cup of chocolate. […]

Shrimp Scampi with Spiralized Zucchini

Share

We have friends visiting from Atlanta and one of them prefers to avoid gluten, so I have been making some gluten-free dishes. As I mentioned in another post, I have found that Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour is a very good substitute for regular flour. In lieu of flour in some of […]

Garbanzo Bean and Zucchini Salad

Share

But for a little chopping, this is a very simple salad to make. It’s light and fresh and a perfect addition to a summer meal. The dressing is very light, but tasty. I made the mistake of serving this with a shrimp orzo dish that had a lot of feta in it, so this salad […]

Crispy Quinoa Sliders

Share

These are perfect for a meatless Monday dinner. You can serve these on buns just like you’d serve a hamburger, with all the classic condiments – lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc. You can also serve them as a side dish if you’re not having a meatless meal. I ate mine without a bun and with […]

Mediterranean Eggplant and Barley Salad

Share

This salad is delicious, but I won’t lie, it’s fairly time-consuming to make.  There are lots of steps, lots of chopping and quite a bit of time needed. This is not something you’re going to throw together on a weekday night after work, unless you’re planning to eat it the next day.

I found this recipe […]

Zucchini Tart with Lemon Thyme and Ricotta

Share

This tart looks beautiful when served and tastes as good as it looks. It’s like a veggie pizza with a much firmer crust.

The original recipe called for goat cheese, but I substituted homemade ricotta with a little bit of garlic added for flavor. I’m not huge goat cheese fan. The taste is much too strong […]

Orzo and Zucchini Salad

Share

As I’ve mentioned, zucchini is plentiful at our CSA this year and I’m always looking for new ways to cook it. This is a simple summer preparation that’s delicious served either cold or at room temperature. It’s both light and fresh. It’s a perfect picnic salad, if you picnic. Next time I make it, I […]

Chocolate Fudge Zucchini Cookies

Share

I received quite a few zucchini last week at my CSA, so I searched for something fun to do with them. We have eaten so many zucchini salads this summer, and quite a bit of grilled zucchini, so I searched for a sweet recipe.

I tried zucchini bread last week, which the boys rejected, so I […]

Zucchini Bread With Dried Cranberries and Vanilla Glaze

Share

I have been receiving a LOT of squash from my CSA, so you’re going to see quite a few new squash recipes in the upcoming days.

I can honestly say that this is the best zucchini bread that I have ever had. It’s incredibly moist and flavorful. I almost made it with chocolate chips instead of […]

Zucchini Fritters

Share

 

Towards the summer you find a lot of interesting squash hanging around farmers markets.  I think the prettiest ones are two-toned Zephyr squash.   I used them in another great recipe, but they would have been just as good turned into fritters. You can use any type of squash found at the end of the […]
