I first discovered panko bread crumbs back in 1999. Please don’t ask me how I know that; I just do. I remember vividly reading a recipe that contained panko bread crumbs, and I remember vividly that I was nursing my second baby, and I remember vividly that I was hormonal and desperate, and the next thing I knew I was ordering panko bread crumbs from some market in Chelsea that the magazine recommended. On the phone, of course, because although I had a computer at the time, I certainly wouldn’t have been cool enough to use it to order panko bread crumbs.
In the realm of Scalloped Potatoes, this recipe is the winner . . . at least in my book. It’s a Family Favorite. We make these for almost every holiday dinner, and in between. When I was younger, we would devour these very quickly at the dinner table. If there were any left-overs, we would fight for them!
How about a couple of cupcakes for dinner? I haven’t made lasagna in ages but after seeing the oh-so-cute Petite Lasagnas at Can You Stay For Dinner? , I just had to make a vegan version. Super easy to make using wonton wrappers, the mini lasagnas bake in about ten minutes or so. I didn’t bother to replace the meat in the sauce called for in the original recipe, I just went with vegetables – fresh shiitake mushrooms and baby zucchini from the farmers market.
My garden is overflowing with cucumbers, so I thought I’d use them to make an easy appetizer this weekend. I like using cucumber slices instead of toast because it cuts carbs and looks pretty. Ingredients
Today, class, it being late July and all, we’re going to examine our zucchini facts: •Zucchini is always at the end of any A-to-Z food list; •Zucchini and fruitcake are the undeserving targets of many a joke; •The zucchini plant literally grows like a weed, making it absolutely ubiquitous in vegetable gardens across America; •And for that reason, enterprising cooks have discovered ways to turn it into muffins, and cake, and pancakes, and… Baked Zucchini Sticks. You know that onion appetizer that came into bloom back in the late ’80s?
I eat Crab Rangoons nearly every time I go to the buffet – they are definitely one of my favorite things to eat there. One problem I have is the crab Rangoons at some buffets don’t even have crab in them, just cream cheese. In my honest opinion they still taste good with just cream cheese and green onions though but the buffets shouldn’t have them labeled as “Crab Rangoon” if there is no crab in them. So if you don’t eat seafood or you don’t like crab meat then just leave it out. Crab Rangoons are fairly easy to make, if you’re making a large batch taking time to stuff and fold them all might take awhile.
