Lemon Zucchini Cake Recipe

Easy Lemon Zucchini Cake Recipe 2

A few days ago, I was out in the garden and discovered a huge zucchini.  It was the first of the season and had tried to hide from me under the leaves.  My children were less than thrilled when I brought my giant zucchini into the house.  It is not their favorite vegetable!  I decided to check out Pinterest to see if there were any unique zucchini recipes that my children would enjoy.  I stumbled upon a ton of zucchini recipes that I want to try but the one I chose for this weekend was a lemon zucchini cake recipe with a lemon glaze on … [Read more...]

This easy hush puppies recipe is part of an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation When I was growing up in New England,  I rarely ventured into 'ethnic' cuisine.  New England baked beans and pot roast were staples in our house.  Tasty but not exactly exciting.  Occasionally we got wild and crazy and went out for pizza or Chinese Food.  It didn't happen often and my taste buds languished from lack of flavor.  When I … [Read more...]

Cranberry and Macadamia Nut Pancake Recipe with White Chocolate Chips

Cranberry and Macadamia Nut Pancake Recipe with White Chocolate Chips 2

Last week, my husband was out of town. As a result of his absence, I adopted the 'eat whatever the heck we want for dinner' rule.  I just hate going through a lot of work for a big dinner when it is just me and the kids eating!  One night, I decided we were doing breakfast for dinner and out of sheer laziness I grabbed for the box of premade pancake mix in the pantry.  Only to find it almost completely empty.  Great.  Now I need to find a pancake recipe that is quick and easy.  I also wanted to find one that added in fruit and nuts to alleviate … [Read more...]
