Parmesan Zucchini

I found these little gems at Trader Joe’s the other day.  Aren’t they just the cutest things?  How come the baby version of anything becomes cuter?  I mean baby clothes and shoes, adorable!  Well heck,  babies are much cutier than their adult counterparts (human and animal…puppies!)  OK back to vegetables.  I love zucchini.  It makes a quickContinue reading “Parmesan Zucchini”

Steak Salad (my first)

  So after nearly two weeks of cookies, muffins, and cheesecakes…I have regained my senses (a reaction to the fright of the looming swimsuit season…) and returned to the perimeter of the grocery .  I hope the baking isle doesn’t feel neglected, I’ll be back soon!  Spring/soon to be summer has finally arrived!  Wahoo!  This is the first fullContinue reading “Steak Salad (my first)”

Chorizo and Goat Cheese Frittata

Eggs!  I love eggs.  Cooked, baked, pickled…all wonderful ways to enjoy an egg.  Last spring, about this time of the year, I spent a wonderful week in Hilton Head, SC.  The weather was wonderful, the ocean warm, and the food delicious.  Each morning we ended up at Signes Bakery to break our fast.  We lounged on theContinue reading “Chorizo and Goat Cheese Frittata”

Roasted Vegetable Panini

As of late, I have no desire to eat meat.  Its not that I am going vegetarian, but the thought of chicken, beef, or pork just does not sound appetizing.  What’s wrong with me!?!  I mean tuna doesn’t even sound great and I LOVE TUNA…seriously, I should probably have my mecury levels checked from theContinue reading “Roasted Vegetable Panini”
