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!

Crispy Roast Pork Belly ‘Tacos’

Crispy Roast Pork Belly ‘Tacos’

A unctuously rich pork belly balanced with a crisp, bright herb salad over a scallion pancake. Although from start to finish the dish will take 4 hours, over 3 and a half hours are occupied by pre-roasting the pork belly, making this dish incredibly fast to make for family or friends. This dish is incredibly welcome at parties or dinners as a novel finger food, and celebrates a combination of my favorite things that my mom made — an homage to my childhood comfort foods with a healthy twist.
