Zucchini Fries with Marinara Sauce

1 Sep

I officially have way more zucchini than we can possibly consume.  After doing very little over the summer my veggie patch has gone into overdrive producing femur sized zucchini, football cukes, and cherry tomatoes galore.

Healthy Chicken Salad and Assorted Goodies For Ravinia

24 Aug

I am way behind on blogging but I have a ton of things in the can- a trip to Door County, a trip to Michigan, and of course the typical shenanigans that occur in my kitchen- but lets start here.  A little while back the hubby and I hopped on a Metra that was on its way to Ravinia to see Lord of the Rings on the big screen accompanied by live orchestra and choir.  In a word? Awesome.

Hellooooooooooo? hello….hello…hello… Is anyone there? there…there…there…

It’s been a while since my last post but I have a good excuse.  I was spending a fabulous weekend away with hubby and family up in Door County.  More on that later as I am still sorting through all my pics (I took a lot).  We had a wonderful time enjoying the weather, nature, the lake and all the great things in Door Country including the food so if you are a foodie heading to Door County I have some rec’s for you!  Stay tuned!

7 Aug

Saturday was my husband and my 6th wedding anniversary.  I can’t believe it has been that long- time sure flies!  He hasn’t kicked me to the curb yet but I suspect that might have something to do with the large percentage of my downtime that is dedicated to feeding him.

And today was no exception…

How to Make Your Own Hummus!

5 Aug

Before I get to my basic hummus recipe and the cost savings it will bring you, I must comment on the book I am currently devouring.  Mike picked me up a copy of The Help by Kathryn Stockett for my birthday and since I started reading I cannot put it down.  I am very excited that it has also been made into a movie although movies versions rarely do the books justice.

You can check out the movie trailer here.
