All about Zucchini

I love zucchini and during the summer there is an abundance this fresh vegetable. You can find them in different sizes.  I like mine in a medium size and a darker green yet firm.  I have noticed the smaller zucchini are sweeter in flavor and the super large ones do tend to taste bitter.

Zucchini can be consumed raw or cooked and there are so many ways to enjoy and I will share my recipes with you for anytime!

Are you talking cabbage about me?

Let’s talk about cabbage.

It’s not really the hot topic of Friday night get-togethers these days but I bet you didn't know all the interesting things about it and fun and yummy ways you can use it in the kitchen.

It also comes in green, purple and white, which makes it a fun and easy way to add some colorful garnish to your finished meal.

Healthy Holiday Eating

There is nothing I love more about the holidays than enjoying the fabulous foods that flow out of the kitchen and onto my dinner plate. Unfortunately, most of the delicious foods my family makes for the holidays are not very healthy. Almost every holiday I struggle to resist my grandmother’s cheese and ham filled rice balls, her warm meat pie smothered with gravy, and most of all her soft, fresh baked seven layer cookies.
