Fried Tomato And Cabbage

Fried Tomato And Cabbage

I have fried green and red tomatoes laid out flat on the plate topped with cooked cabbage with bacon and shallots. For a dressing I made a bleu cheese sauce.

Summer Squash Casserole

Summer Squash Casserole

Living in the countryside where most people garden, I am often faced with the common question of what to do with too many summer squash. I made this recipe with yellow crooknecks, but it ought to work with any firm squash, like zucchini or patty-pan. It is almost soufflé like, fluffy and creamy and cheesy all at once.

Turkey Dressing

Turkey Dressing

Here on the East Coast of Canada, and especially in the “potato belt” where I live, this Thanksgiving side dish is featured in a lot of households. It’s one of those recipes that I’ve never measured – I just eyeball it to feed whoever is showing up, plus extra for surprise drop-ins and leftovers.
Note: you’ll want to prepare this when your turkey is just about or completely done cooking so you can scoop the pan juices.

ASIAN BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND CARROT SLAW

ASIAN BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND CARROT SLAW

A beautiful autumn-hued salad, but perfect any time of year. The sweet squash and carrot mingle in a Vietnamese-style dressing, with a little kick from jalapeño.

Herbed Zucchini slices with Ricotta Dipping Sauce

Herbed Zucchini slices with Ricotta Dipping Sauce

This recipe came about because I had a large zucchini from my garden and I didn’t want it to go to waste. I love fried breaded zucchini, one of my favorites. I had left over ricotta cheese from a competition 2 days before and I didn’t want to waste it, so…. you guessed it.. my recipe was born! I fried up the zucchini and make a spicy dipping sauce with the ricotta, olive oil and Italian spices. It was gone in no time, so I guess this experiment was a big success. Not all recipes turn out that way, so I was happy to hit a home run with this one!
