Zucchini Recipes: Round 1

Zucchini Recipes: Round 1

There once was a barren land with nothing growing but grass and wild thyme around our house. Soon, we started mapping out a plan to put in a vegetable garden. Great idea! I thought we would have a quaint little garden. We have been caring for this (not-so-quaint) garden all summer and things are flourishing. Especially zucchini and cucumbers. Whoa. Next year, we are planting far less of these abundant crops! So, what can you do with all that zucchini?

Simple Snack: Kale Chips

Simple Snack: Kale Chips

Kale chips. Did you know just how easy they can be? I have always used the oven to bake them and the results were consistent and always delicious. Recently, I was crunching on some kale chips that my mother-in-law made. We were talking about how easy they were. I asked if she baked them in the oven? No, she said. What was her secret? I had to find out!

Time Out: Winter Fruit Salad

Time Out: Winter Fruit Salad

I have put myself in a quick timeout (NQGBebe is napping!)  to let you in on how to make a delicious winter fruit salad! I have never really been fond of fruit salad. Browned bananas, canned peaches and fruit cocktail come to mind. That was before this recipe came across my radar screen. Bosc pears, tart apple, figs, apricots, raspberries marry up and settle in a warmly, spiced syrup made with a vanilla bean, star anise pods, lemon peel…oh, please! All the delicious flavors in one giant bowl. Join me as I walk you through the easy steps!

Baking Bootcamp Challenge: Gruyere & Green Olive Rolls

Baking Bootcamp Challenge: Gruyere & Green Olive Rolls

 

Gruyere & Olive Stuffed Rolls The third baking bootcamp challenge by Joy the Baker & King Arthur Flour was to bake up a few gruyere and green olive stuffed rolls. I am not going to drag this out – I was intimidated. So, so scared to work with yeast which is super sensitive to the environment, time and temperature. Add in a slightly cranky (yet still adorable) baby and we just have ourselves a full day of entertainment!

Energize! No Bake Coconut Date Balls

Energize! No Bake Coconut Date Balls

coconut date balls  I made a batch of coconut date balls recently for a friend. She was in need of some energy as she had recently had a baby. I wanted to give her something that was nutritious, easy to eat single  handedly when she was in need of a snack, and something that packs a bit of fuel is a bonus. Welcome, coconut date energy balls! Let’s go!
