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 […]

Apricot Sorbet Recipes

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 […]

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 […]

Norwegian Apple Pie

More like a cake than a traditional pie, this Norwegian Apple Pie recipe can be made quickly with items you already have in the cupboard.   My first food related job (many, many years ago) was working in the kitchen of a high-end seasonal restaurant. For most of the day it was just me, the […]

Zucchini Ricotta Chive Bread

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 […]

When life gives you zucchini overload, make brownies! As I mentioned in an earlier post, the zucchini patch is prolific as usual this year. We’ve been harvesting green, black, and yellow zucchini for weeks now. We’ve grilled it, stir-fried it, stuffed it, and stewed it (see ratatouille recipe here). The children aren’t allowed to visit […]

Ratatouille

Late summer harvest brings some of my favorite foods; dark, flavorful eggplant, ripe, juicy tomatoes, crisp bell peppers, and an abundance of zucchini. It’s the best time of year to make ratatouille! Sometimes, when I am yearning for summer days deep in the dark of winter, I purchase all these ingredients at the grocery store […]
