Whole Foods had some beautiful, boned legs of lamb recently and I thought about the different recipes I might make. I don’t make a big roast any more as there are not enough people to eat it. I thought about a curry recipe I wanted to try, maybe an Irish stew and since it’s still … Continue reading
This is the time of the year when there is an abundance of fresh vegetables and herbs in my garden and the markets. When I first saw this recipe I was immediately drawn in at the word “pesto”. A flavorful ingredient to perk up a side dish like this. What a perfect way to use … Continue reading
This squash is often a good substitute for pasta in a recipe such as this one. You could easily make this vegetarian by leaving out the turkey and adding another vegetable instead. Since Loretta of Safari of the Mind introduced me to this lovely squash I have made an effort to cook with it.
At my Farmer’s Market recently a farmer was selling these two-toned crookneck zucchini called Zephyr and I just had to buy some.

This combination of flavors always goes well together especially with a balsamic vinaigrette – my favorite vinegar!
We all have zucchini bread recipes and this is the one I have been using when there was extra zucchini in the garden, or as below when they got too big. No, I would not use them when they got that big! Or you can use zucchini as weights… Or perhaps just decorate them for Halloween! … Continue reading
This is a great recipe you can serve year round. I like to serve this over pasta for a light dinner but it is also good served as a side dish to grilled meat. I made this a lot when the tomatoes and zucchini were producing in great quantities in my garden. 4 small zucchini (do not use … Continue reading
