Recipes shared over this week…. looks delish.
Don’t forget to pin them so you can find them later if you don’t want to try them NOW!
We like to get our fruits and veggies from Bountiful Baskets and that has caused the need for me to be creative in the usage of the veggies so they don’t spoil on us before we can eat them. I came up with this tasty vegetarian dish that goes very well with rice or on pasta. I even make up a small pan full for my lunch sometimes, it’s that good. 1T olive oil 1 yellow squash or zucchini, sliced 1 tomato, chopped 1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced or sliced (both ways are good) 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning salt and pepper to taste parmesan cheese (optional) Heat olive oil with garlic in frying pan over medium heat. That allows more of the garlic flavor to come out. When garlic is sizzling, add squash and tomatoes, and stir frequently until cooked to desired texture. (I prefer my squash and zucchini to have a little bit of firmness to them.) Serve and garnish with parmesan cheese, if desired. The above recipe serves 1 as a main dish, or 2 as a side dish.
Smores, Lighter Way to Satisfy a SweetTooth
Who doesn’t love a smore? My kids ask for them constantly but we don’t make them very often. We usually do them over the fire pit maybe a couple times each summer, but they could eat them every day if I would let them! Not to mention, they aren’t exactly the healthiest snack in the world. Sometimes you just need a treat though, right? These satisfy the craving, but the serving sizes are much smaller, and they are lighter than the original. If you are craving the classic smore taste of summer, give these a try!
You will need:
chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating
Begin by crushing up a couple of graham crackers. You don’t need very many, I used 3 and had a lot of crumbs left over. Once they are crushed, place the crumbs in a small, shallow bowl that will be easy to dip in.
Melt some chocolate. I started with 2 squares and got about 15 marshmallows out of it. Holding the end of your marshmallow, dip the other end into the chocolate. Let it drip off into your bowl.
Then quickly dip it into your graham cracker crumbs. Place it chocolate side up on wax paper to cool. The chocolate will harden.
There you have it! These would make great finger foods for a party or picnic, or use them as a party favor in a cute vellum bag! For now, my kids are just eating them. Store them in an airtight container and have them on hand when you have a craving or want to indulge a sweet tooth without the guilt!
