This time of year, the herbs are growing great. And I’ve found an absolutely delicious (yet no-labor-required) way to use them. I use it on pasta, chicken, heck I’ve even topped my fresh salad with it. And to celebrate Throwback Thursday I’m sharing it with you today.
Like fresh herbs? Like garlic? Like easy & delicious recipes? Well you’re gonna LOVE this!
Many of you know we lost my brother very unexpectedly recently. It’s always so hard to grapple with the loss of a loved one in these circumstances.
My brother was an accomplished flint-knapper. He hand-made many arrowhead works of art. Of course he signed each and every one to differentiate between his perfection at his art and actual American Indian artifacts.
After his passing I wanted to make gifts for my parents from his beautiful work.
RancherMan’s a huge ice cream fan. He would eat it every day if I’d let him. LOL
But since he enjoys it so muchI try to find ways to give him healthier ‘ice cream’ options more often. Tasty ways such as my Homemade Fudgesicles. Their chocolaty deliciousness has a yogurt base. So they’re filled with healthy probiotics.
I also make a sugar free Ice Cream Substitute using frozen fruit. A few frozen bananas for sweetness and maybe a handful of berries. Just blend and enjoy!
But sometimes, ya just want real, honest-to-goodness ice cream!
I had some fresh peaches that needed to be used up before they went bad. So I decided to give ‘er a try.
Have you ever heard of zucchini boats? It’s a hollowed-out zucchini filled with hearty deliciousness and baked until tender. What a great idea for a little something different when the zucchini in your garden threatens to take over the world!LOL
Recently I found myself with some fresh zucchini. Now ordinarily I use zucchini as a veggie side dish. But I was looking for something a little more substantial this time. Something different.
I decided to make zucchini boats with them. I’ll make ’em hearty too by stuffing them with meat & cheese. Then I can use them as the main entrée.
I’m very happy to say it was not only ridiculously easy, but delicious too!
Sometimes you find yourself with food needing to be used in a different way than you intended in able to ward off food waste. That’s just what happened with these apples.
Oh they looked great. But when we got them home we just didn’t care for them. They were not granny smith, but were firm and tart all the same.
So I set out to look for things to do with them so they wouldn’t be wasted. They didn’t taste half bad peeled. So maybe I can cook with them instead of eating them fresh. I gave these chunky apple cinnamon muffins a try.
