Zucchini in White Sauce

Categories: Recipes.

It is zucchini season and time to come up with a different recipe for using it up. For this casserole I used a white sauce and chopped zucchini. I used my scalloped potato recipe for inspiration. I started with a medium sized zucchini. I forgot to measure it before starting so that I could create a recipe in MyFitnessPal and figure out the calories. It will be a guesstimate, if that is a word. Zucchini is low in calories, but I’m not so sure once you add the sauce. Ingredients: medium zucchini 3 tsp butter 7 tsp flour 2 tsp

Zucchini Bread

Categories: Recipes.

It’s that time of the year when zucchini are starting to be plentiful in the garden,  this year I didn’t grow my own, instead I’m relying on the farmers markets and farm road side stands.   I use a tried and true recipe from a Hasting County International Plowing Match cookery book from 1986.  These types of books are usually sold as fund raisers for various churches and organizations. I love these types of recipe books as you know that the contributors have made all the recipes many times over, perhaps they are even old family recipes passed down.  I haven’t

Zucchini Fritters

Categories: Recipes.

I am on my quest to use up the extra zucchini with my version of zucchini fritters.  I usually don’t cook anything that is fried or deep fried but these fritters only take a couple of minutes in a frypan with a bit of olive oil, so I’m not counting them as fried. I found lots of recipes on the internet, but like my knitting or crochet patterns, I always have to change it up a little bit.  I included some chopped onion and some chopped mushrooms in my fritters. Ingredients 2 cups shredded zucchini 1/3 cup flour 1 egg

Yummy Zucchini Fries

Categories: Recipes.

Zucchini is plentiful … from the garden or from the market.  I’ve been getting creative and trying out some new recipes.  I’ve got some growing in the garden, and after some little ones dropping off it looks like I might be in for a nice crop of the green ones. I love to share my garden with others and recently gave away a lot of Egyptian walking onions ready to eat and a lot of the top sets to plant.  One of the lovely people that came by to pick some up gave me a big, big bag of beans

Zucchini Casserole

Categories: Recipes.

Zucchini is just about in season.  Do you have an abundance of it from your garden?  Or do you buy fresh veggies from the farmers market?  This year I’m trying to grow my own. There have been lots of blooms but only tiny zucchini are forming.  It was such a cool and damp start to the season that a lot of the plants are behind this year. Here is a delicious tasting recipe that is quick and easy to make. Ingredients: 2 cups sliced zucchini, 1/3 of a sweet onion diced, 3 eggs well beaten, 2 cup grated mozzarella cheese, sliced mushrooms,

The Yummy BBQ Season

Categories: Recipes and Vegetables.

BBQ season is wonderful.  There are so many foods to cook outdoors.  We look forward to bbq cooking all winter.  I know some people can bbq all year round but we only do it from spring to fall.  It just gets too cold and windy and snowy and it takes ages for the bbq to reach cooking temperature. One of our favourites is to make foil packets … of potatoes, onions, mushroom, and veggies. New potatoes that are scrubbed and sliced with a dollop of butter and then wrapped in foil come out crispy and delicious. I’m sure you all
