Happy 2015, everyone! Hard to believe that the holidays are already behind us, isn’t it? I’m sure I say this every year, but they seem to have flown by especially fast this time around.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is this week?! I certainly can’t– I feel like Memorial Day was last week!

As you’re probably able to tell by now, my garden is producing a ton of zucchinis this season…. which is great! Not only are they tasty grilled, steamed, or baked, but they are incredibly moist (and healthy!) in baked goods (just check out my Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf.) Perhaps the most famous […]
This easy late summer dinner is a perfect way to use the tomatoes and zucchini currently at peak season, while keeping your calories low, your protein high, and your tummy full!
