Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

zucchini cake blog

Just when you thought the zucchini and summer squash recipes were over for the season…

Out comes one more zucchini recipe!

Yes, I’m kind of in a zucchini rut. But there’s just so much of it, and it’s so versatile. Already this summer I’ve made a quinoa-stuffed patty pan squash and a delicious zucchini dip. I also made a zucchini ribbon salad. And that’s just in 2014. Search through the archives, and there’s even more zucchini goodness.

The way I figured it,…continue reading.

Pickled Banana Peppers

pickled peppers blog

‘Tis the time of year where canning and pickling is on every gardener’s mind. While my garden is not having its best year ever (my pepper plants are just now starting to produce), I’m still benefiting from others’ surplus.

A friend of ours gave us a large amount of various peppers – namely Santa Fe and banana – a…continue reading.

stuffed squash blog

Okay, I know that my previous post was a zucchini recipe, and here we are with yet another variation on summer squash. It’s kind of everywhere at the moment, and I couldn’t pass up these absolutely adorable little sunburst patty pan squash at the farmer’s market this past weekend.

I mean really, aren’t they the sweetest?

They’re remarkably…continue reading.

zucchini yogurt dip blog

Surely I’m not the only one that has experienced the conundrum of “too much zucchini”. In fact, I can imagine several of you reading this are looking at your gardens right now, wondering what you will possibly do with ALL OF THIS ZUCCHINI. Two loaves of zucchini bread every week couldn’t begin to make a dent in…continue reading.

creamed grilled corn blog

There is an elderly couple that runs a booth at the farmer’s market, and along with (I presume) their granddaughter, they sell organic produce. They are so sweet and kind, and while I don’t buy all of our produce from them, I do make it a point to purchase sweet corn while they have it available. It’s the…continue reading.

strawberry frozen yogurt blog

Confession: I’ve never made frozen yogurt. Not until this recipe, that is. Truth be told, I’ve tended towards the belief that frozen yogurt was inferior to ice cream. It’s lower in fat. That automatically means it can’t be good, right?

Well, I was wrong.

I didn’t set out with the intention of making something lighter. This was born more out…continue reading.

pickled blog

Beets have made plenty of appearances here before. I love them. They’re gorgeous, for starters. Most are an unbelievably intense red, but some varieties are golden, or even striped like candy canes. How could it not be love at first sight? But beyond their good looks, they’re deliciously sweet and earthy. I enjoy them raw, steamed, continue reading.

Cheerios has another delicious option out there for those of you looking to add a bit of sneaky protein into your day. Their new Cheerios Protein line, which comes in Oats and Honey and Cinnamon Almond, have 7…continue reading.

With the kids home for the summer, hungry, and all-too-often bored, I’m certain you’re lLooking for some treats to make for (or with!) your kids this summer that are delicious and gluten-free. Am I right?

Well, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve come to the right place!

If you’re stuck in a rut with what to feed the kids this time of year, here is some awesome…continue reading.

zucchini ribbon salad fg

It’s that time of year around here – time for everyone to unload their massive bounty of zucchini and summer squash upon their friends, family, and neighbors! Everyone except me, that is.

You see, as soon as I plant any squash plant, every squash bug within a 10-mile radius comes to visit. It’s insanity. I’ve tried every organic deterrent…continue reading.

Spiralized Hash Browns

spiralized hash browns blog

Confession time.

For over a year, my spiral slicer sat tucked away in a cabinet, unused. I originally bought it back when I was neck-deep in a lot of paleo insanity, briefly interrupted by a few weeks of some random raw vegan diet I tried to follow. I wanted to make noodles out of zucchini with…continue reading.
