Zucchini Patties

zucchini patties-5

As anyone with a garden knows once you plant zucchini you soon have far more of it then you will ever need.  Eating zucchini quickly becomes a chore.  Time to try making Zucchini Patties.  I will be honest my zucchini recipes tend to lean towards desserts and treats with Zucchini Cake and Zucchini Crumb Muffins.

Spinach Pork Wraps

Sliced Pork Wraps-13

My second recipe for our series in 10 pork dinners from 1 pork loin is Spinach Pork Wraps.  I didn’t really plan this recipe I was too lazy to make a dinner one night and decided throwing stuff into a wrap was the best way to get out making a large dinner.  I always like […]

Parmesan Pork Chops

I had an idea a while ago.  I wanted to see how many dinners I could make from one of those whole Pork loins you can buy at the grocery store.  That was about 6 months ago and I am finally getting around to this project.  I thought I would kick off the project with […]

Blue Cheese Ribeye

Lobster Rolls

My hands down favorite way to enjoy Maine Lobster is to make Lobster Rolls.  Made at home Lobster Rolls are easy and perfect to celebrate the 4th with (I am getting a head start).  My plan is to use my frozen blanched lobster and see how it stands up taste and texture wise against my […]

Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Sometimes you need an easy, inexpensive, and delicious dinner.  In that case I like to turn to a simple Baked Chicken Drumsticks recipe.  I specifically meant to write down what I paid for 1 1/2 pounds (5 drumsticks) but of course I didn’t.  I believe it was in the $3-$4 range and with a simple […]
