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 […]

Summer Squash with Lemon and Mint

Share

On Shelter Island, if you don’t get to the pharmacy early on Sunday morning there’s a good chance you won’t get a Sunday Times.   I didn’t get there early enough this past Sunday, so I ended up with a copy of the Wall Street Journal.   I haven’t read the Journal in a long time, and […]
