• Crusty Parmesan-Herb Zucchini Bites

    Date: 2014.07.21 | Category: Recipes | Response: 0

    So, the garden is coming along and you’re looking for new recipes to try with those fabulous and scrumptious looking veggies. Well, here is one I came up with that gives the zucchini a zesty flare and tastes wonderful! My kiddos actually ate the zucchini.


    4 medium, fresh zucchini, washed and sliced in half, length wise

    1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    1-2 tablespoons each of fresh oregano, basil, and cilantro minced

    Olive oil enough to lightly brush over the zucchini slices

    Salt & pepper to taste


    Pre-heat your oven to 350F.

    Lightly brush both sides of the zucchini with olive oil and place the slices onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Mix the Parmesan and herbs together in a small bowl and sprinkle over the zucchini. Then, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

    Bake for 10 minutes, and then broil for an additional 3-5 minutes or until cheese is crispy and light golden brown.

    There you have it ~ Enjoy!

  • Lucia, Lucia ~ The Book Review

    I have finished the book! I must say, Lucia’s character is strong and independent. Her character goes through the glamour of being a ‘career’ girl in the 1950′s and the promises of a life of uptown luxury. All to come down on her. The story plays into the choice career vs. having a family, a topic that rages on even today.

    The book does a good job of describing the sadness involved with her choices. I couldn’t put the book down, and the ending was perfect…but I won’t give it away.

    Basically, materials mean nothing, people and love do.

    A great read! Please share your comments, I would love to hear your opinions!

    Okay, so I want to try something new and hopefully readers will jump on board. I would like to start an online book club.

    The first book that I will be reading is Lucia, Lucia by Adriana Trigiani.

    If you are interested in reading the book and joining, please pick up a copy. My goal is to have it read by the end of this month, and to discuss/review my thoughts of the book. I would love to hear your comments and thoughts about the book and book recommendations for the next read, as well.

    Happy reading!
