Stuffed Zucchini

Stuffed Zucchini
I like the simple things in life. Simple ingredients, simple techniques, maximum flavor. But I guess you know that by now. Especially when you hand me a recipe that doubles as an appetizer or side dish, you just reel me in. Stuffed zucchinis are so versatile. It creates an endless amount of possibilities because almost anything goes with the smooth and silky flavor (and texture) of the zucchinis. So lately I’ve been wondering if there are easier and faster ways to prepare them. Now please, please, don’t tell me you’ve been doing it like this for 10 years straight! Ingredients: 1 tbsp sour cream 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp curry powder 1/2 tomato 1 tsp thyme 2 zucchinis 1 onion cheese pepper Optional: bacon Directions: Preheat your oven to 400 (200C). Give the zucchini a good scrub. Slice them in half length-ways. Spoon out the guts. See the pink ‘bracelet’ I’m wearing? Now give the zucchini pulp a good chop, also chop a small onion and 1/2 a tomato while you’re at it. Hello, my pretties!

It’s all about the side dishes Hi Everyone, they can make or break a meal. Very often, they are the most memorable things about a meal; without them, let’s just say that your meal will be average with the ham, turkey, roast pork, beef or chicken all standing alone. Lonely. Side dishes are headliners in their own right. Roasted Garlic Pizza I had originally un-published this post as part of the purge but after repeated emails asking where the post went, I decided to re publish. Ever since I tried kickpleat's pizza dough recipe, we've had different pizzas probably once a week. Our favorite, however, is the roasted garlic. It's incredibly simple, very tasty, and deliciously inexpensive. You probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now. Try it - and please, let me know what you think!!

Coconut Lime Noodle Soup Even though Southern California enjoys warmth and eternal sunshine most of the year, it’s beginning to get colder, especially in the mornings and nights. In colder days, I love preparing myself a piping hot noodle soup or rice dishes. The warmth from cooking in the kitchen and the noodles or rice never fail to warm me up. One of the recipes that I have meant to try is this coconut lime noodle soup. Its taste is very similar to tom kha gai or Thai chicken and coconut soup. Peppermint Mocha Frappe with Coconut Milk I used to be an absolute mint-chocolate hater. Anything containing any semblance of that flavor combination sent me running, especially when it came to desserts. No, I wouldn’t like any peppermint patties, thank you very much. But then, something happened. Crispy Parmesan Asparagus Sticks Who would have ever thought I would get excited about seeing something green on sale in the grocery store? Not me. But that’s what happened when I walked by these super thin asparagus spears. How often do I find thin asparagus that doesn’t look half dead and is on sale?

Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta Do you ever look in your pantry and have an ingredient that you tend to use for the same dish every single time? When it comes to Marsala wine, my go to dish is naturally Chicken Marsala. I've made a few different versions but this Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta is the most favorite of my husband. Buffalo Chicken Bites Buffalo Chicken Bites We continue onto Week 4 of College Football, which means another delicious Football bite! These bite-sized Buffalo Chicken Bites are oven baked, not fried, so not only do they taste great, but are so much healthier for you. These crispy bites are crusted in corn flakes and baked to crispy perfection.

Roasted Broccoli Recipe Kids don’t usually beg for broccoli, at least not the kids I know. So I was quite pleasantly surprised when my goddaughter Piper and her sisters Alden and Reilly not only raved about roasted broccoli, but insisted on making a batch for me during a recent visit. We sort of threw it together and the oven wasn’t working very well, so that particular incarnation of roasted broccoli wasn’t a raging success, but it was eaten with great enthusiasm nonetheless. Now home with a more reliable oven, I’ve recreated what I think the girls were trying to achieve. And if this were how broccoli was always served, I would beg for it too.

Leftover Turkey Lasagna Roll Recipe w/ Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Spinach When you have leftover turkey (or chicken), try these lasagna rolls, filled with sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. The low-fat mix is tucked inside whole wheat pasta and baked until bubbling and golden brown. What happens when one little family of four cooks a 20 pound turkey at Thanksgiving? Potato and Cheese Pierogi Recipe Pierogi are traditional Polish noodle dumplings, filled with a variety of classic sweet and savory mixtures. For this recipe, we've chosen to make a basic potato-cheese filling and serve them as a side dish topped with sour cream, garlic and chive sauce. Our family recipe, combined with a fairly standard dough preparation method, produces an exceptionally light and tender finished product.

Kicked Up Tuna Melts Is there something in your life that comes up seemingly out of the blue, but strangely happens every year? Ash Wednesday is like that for me. I know, there’s really no excuse, but I'm surprised every year. Jar of Happiness for my Birthday Tuesday is my thirty-something birthday and I wanted to make something fun for myself.

Homemade Apple Chips Well, the holidays are over and what a whirlwind it was. And so much fun. My brothers and their families came to visit and I did a ton of cooking for that, including an enormous batch of chicken ragu, which I smartly froze ahead of time. That was a timesaver. I made big pork loins stuffed with one of my favorite stuffings.
