Sourdough Zucchini Bread

Excess zucchini plus sourdough starter equals a unique quick bread. Sometimes the garden fairy (you know, the tooth fairy’s sister!) brings us too many zucchini. And sometimes she brings us only a few zucchini – but they are giants! In either case, the best thing to do is grate the whole thing and turn it […]

Lazy Night Vegetarian Pasta

Feeling lazy? Vegetarian pasta is the answer when you are just too tired to spend hours cooking. I have always found Thursday to be the toughest night of the week. We are all tired, but still have another full day to go before we can rest. When the kids were little, Thursday night was pizza […]

Dairy-Free Watermelon Sherbet

Watermelon sherbet is a refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day. It’s watermelon season. Sweet and juicy, maybe nothing says summer more than watermelon. I remember planting watermelon seeds in third grade as a school project. I babied that seedling, and with my father’s help managed to coax a small watermelon out of it before […]

It’s easy to turn fresh apricots into Honey Apricot Vanilla Sorbet or Brown Sugar Almond Apricot Sorbet. And a great way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month!   Earlier this week I mentioned that I had purchased 27 pounds of very ripe apricots. After eating my fill, my thoughts turned to canning. But after canning […]

Lentil Soup with Butternut Squash

Roasted squash and black beluga lentils combine to make a rich and filling soup.   Do you grow butternut squash? If so, you may wonder what to do with it all. Even if you have a squash-loving family like mine, night after night of mashed squash can get old. The other night was one of […]

Excess zucchini combined with leftover lasagna filling and chives from the garden turn into a tangy, moist yeast bread.   Do you still have too much zucchini? Yeah, me too. The other night I had grand plans to make grilled zucchini lasagna roll-ups. But first I went for a bike ride along the river. Then […]

Continuing on my quest to use up the zucchini before it takes over the whole garden, I devised this beautiful Mediterranean inspired bread yesterday. It combines golden semolina flour, sweet and tangy dried tomatoes, shredded zucchini and salty Parmesan in a soft, moist loaf. You […]
