Pesto Spaghetti Zoodles with Heirloom Tomatoes

Here’s a recipe that can help you use up garden zucchini:  Pesto Spaghetti Zoodles with Heirloom Tomatoes

Pesto Spaghetti with Heirloom Grape Tomatoes

I have been totally enamored with zoodles these days.  It turns out that zoodles (zucchini noodles) are a great way to satisfy the craving for actual “noodles.”  They spiral up just like classic noodles, but the carbs are magically not there at all!  Your brain is tricked into thinking that it’s eating pasta, but you’re really eating zucchini… and it’s delicious!

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bars

Here’s a simple recipe that is always a big hit at a BBQ: No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bars

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bars

As it turns out, there are very few summer days left in this season.  Just a few more weekends to go, and then we’ll be grabbing sweaters in the morning and thinking about putting our patio furniture away.  I plan on milking every last drop of sunshine out of it and enjoying our backyard for as long as we can stand it.  Eating outdoors is our favorite.  And we love having friends over to enjoy it with us.  This so simple dessert is a good one to serve at a barbecue where there are plenty of kiddos around.  Kids love the Oreos in this dessert, but I think you’ll find that the adults like them too!

Summer Macaroni Salad

Need an easy side dish for all those great barbecued dinner recipes? This Summer Macaroni Salad is the perfect complement to all those grilling dishes.

Simple Macaroni Salad

We love to grill our dinner as often as possible. It’s still warm enough that we don’t want to turn on the oven if it can be avoided. So the grill is in heavy use now and will still be for at least another couple months. That means I am always looking to create great side dishes that are minimal prep and keep the kitchen cool too. It’s even better if they require very little clean up. This simple Summer Macaroni Salad is definitely all those things and so delicious that rarely do we have leftovers.

Zucchini Baking Recipes

Here are a couple of delicious recipes I shared on Parade Magazine’s blog recently:  BLUEBERRY ZUCCHINI BREAD and CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI CAKE.  You’d never know there was zucchini inside.  Zucchini acts much like bananas do in banana bread- they provide some great moisture for the baked good.  These are both really great recipes.
