roasted veggie tacos

I saw this recipe in Martha Stewart Living and immediately thought it sounded amazing. Roasted vegetables on a taco, why had I never thought of this before? It’s simple enough: roast veggies, slap them on a tortilla. Her recipe was for portobello and zucchini tacos and don’t they look amazing? I didn’t just stop at [...]

bikini bread

The title of this post is a little misleading, this bread is in no way bikini-related. Bikini bread is what Sam’s little brother used to call Zucchini Bread and I think it’s cute so I’m sticking with it. My dad gave me 2 GIANT zucchinis (is that the correct plural version or is it zucchin-I, [...]

menu recap [week 9]

Sunday: Stuffed Zucchini with Cheesy Breadcrumbs I received my first produce bag from the Natural Farms co-op I joined. It was packed full of zucchini so I decided to try this stuffed zucchini recipe. We paired it with some leftover steak we had, but it’d be great with just about anything or by itself if you’re vegetarian. Monday: [...]

Indian Pizza

Last week, I made an Indian Pizza inspired by this Rachael Ray recipe. I say “inspired by” because I changed a lot of it to suit my personal tastes. The result was an exotic, flavorful pizza. Feel free to try my version or hers, I’m positive you’ll love them both. It was also a very [...]
