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!

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese: Now here is a delicious sandwich. And my friends… you’re gonna love this one! It came to me… after watching Guy Fieri in Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Is it me? Or, does all that grilled, fried and smoked food get anyone else extremely hungry while watching the show? I think it’s pure strategy… because why would the Food Network air that show late at night!

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.

Recipe for Grilled Zucchini Pizza Slices This idea of grilled zucchini used as a base for pizza toppings is one of those cooking ideas that swirl around in my head, and sometimes I'm never sure if I thought of it or saw it somewhere else. I kept wondering how it would work to arrange a marriage between Grilled Zucchini and Val's Kid-Friendly Broiled Zucchini Rounds with Cheese, with the offspring having a little pizza personality, and when I saw Alea's Eggplant Pizza Bites on $5 Dinners, it convinced me to try it. Even so, this is only a recipe in the very loosest sense of the word, because anything you like on pizza could be cooked on top of a thick slice of grilled or broiled zucchini. I'm a pepperoni girl, so of course I had to have that, but the topping options are endless here. Admittedly, this is not a pizza in the truest sense of the word, but if you'd like pizza flavors with a "crust" that's gluten-free, low-glycemic, and low-carb, this is an idea you may end up liking just as much as I did!

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. Chicken Chimichangas Recipe Chicken chimichangas require a little work but they are definitely worth it. I actually prefer these over the beef chimichangas. Tortillas are filled with a mixture, rolled, and then fried in oil. The filling mixture consists of ingredients such as chicken, rice, refried beans, and black olives. After the chimichangas are fried they are topped with a avocado mixture. This mixture is very similar to guacamole.

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. The Sriracha Cookbook Blog As you may recall (or maybe you saw it in the new Sriracha documentary), I co-hosted the 1st Annual LA Sriracha Festival back in October with my good friend Josh Lurie from Josh was kind enough to put together a great slideshow from the event with pics from our good friend Bernie Wire, and I invite you to check it out! (There are photos on both pages!) It was an incredible experience, and we’ll absolutely be doing it again in 2014… and expanding it to other cities! While I loved it all, my favorite part was knowing that a portion of all proceeds was going to Food Forward, a North Hollywood-based charity whose mission is to rescue and donate fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste. Over 1.7 million pounds of food has been gleaned since 2009, and given to local food pantries, helping feed over 40,000 hungry Southern Californians each month.
