That sounds really good, and timely, TS, thanks. Plus, I say you get extra credit for managing to work a "that's what she said" into a recipe, lol!! : )

Here's a simple zuchinni recipe which should be popping up in gardens.

Cut length-wise in half and brush non-skin side with oil, place face down on cookie sheet.
Place into a 425 degree oven for about 5 minutes, depending on size. You want it firm not sloppy (That's what she said)

Chop up the following, but not too fine. Only enough to fit on the zuch.

onions
peppers
mushrooms
tomatoes

Flip over zuchinni and place chopped veggies on top. Put favorite cheese on top of that. American melts well.

Place under broiler for 30 to 60 seconds until cheese is melted.

The result is crunchy, juicy and tasty.

You can also saute the chopped veggie medley if you prefer a bit more cooked.

Nutritious, tasty and relatively inexpensive side dish.


Very nice. I'm always looking for something to add to what I cook.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.

This is a modification of a Bon Appetit recipe from years ago and a favorite of mine. It’s a great one pot meal with some good bread, and fits right in this time of year. Plus it’s easy, and all the veggie amounts can be played with as needed/desired. : )

Pasta, Sausage and Bean Soup

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound spicy Italian sausages, castings removed
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1 1/2 cups diced carrots
1 celery stalk with leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic (or more, if you like garlic as I do)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
6 cups good chicken stock/broth
1 14 1/2-to 16-ounce can diced tomatoes
2 15- to 16-ounce cans white cannellini beans, drained
1/2 cup orzo
Small piece of Parmesan Reggiano rind (about 1” x 2”, optional but great)
Grated Parmesan for sprinkling when serving.

Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add sausages and sauté until beginning to brown, breaking up with back of spoon, about 5-10 minutes. Add onions, carrots, celery, garlic, basil, rosemary, crushed red pepper and sage, plus 1/2 teaspoon salt and grind or two of black pepper. Sauté until vegetables begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Add broth, tomatoes with their juices and beans. Bring soup to boil. Reduce heat, add parmesan rind and simmer until vegetables are tender and flavors blend, about 20 minutes. Add orzo to soup and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Remove parmesan rind and discard. Check soup for seasoning and serve each bowl sprinkled with some grated Parmesan. Serves about 6-8.

BROWNIES!!!! A few weeks ago I was in search for a homemade recipe for brownies. I found this one and had made at least 4 batches since! So yummy! And the frosting is amazing!!! It hardens and taste like fudge!!! Anyone got any really good fudge recipes? I'm in the mood!

Those brownies sound great, Em! I've got a recipe for truffle brownies that I've perfected over the years. I'm going to try and bring a batch out to Broomfield, if I can figure out how to fly with them.

This time of year, I'm making lots of treats for gift giving. This favorite recipe goes back to my grandmother; I can't count the number of pounds of these I've made and given away over the years. They're always a big hit, and the house smells incredible while they're baking!


GRANDMA B'S SPICED PECANS

1 pound good quality pecan halves
1 egg white
1 Tbl water

1/4 tsp salt (not coarse grained)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 cup sugar

Mix together sugar and spices in small bowl. Mix egg white and water in large bowl until foamy. Add nuts to egg white mixture and stir until nuts are coated. Add sugar mixture and stir until nuts are well coated. Spread out in single layer on well greased cookie sheet (or parchment paper on cookie sheet, then cool on parchment as well). Bake at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until nuts start to crisp (be careful they don't burn, though!). Remove from pan and cool completely before storing in air tight container.


Merry Christmas, one and all!!

The problem is that they're frosted and have to stay upright. I don't think they'd survive the shipping. Though I keep thinking about trying it. Maybe I'll use you as a guinea pig and ship a batch out and see how they do. They'd still taste good, even if they get messed up. And let me emphasize that these are non-electric brownies, but have been known to put chocoholics into orbit anyway.

Anyone ever try and ship anything with ganache on it??
