Oven Baked Zucchini Chips


I'll admit that we don't eat a lot of vegetables in our house; however this is something I've been trying to rectify.  I don't really mind zucchini but it's a kind of "new" vegetable to me.  Seeing recipes like this have made me think this looks like a good way to reintroduce the summer vegetable in to our meals.  Because they're coated with a breadcrumb and cheese mixture before being baked into "chips" they're like a masked version of the vegetable.  These will be something I keep in my back pocket if we end up having picky kids!  They could make a great side-dish with some burgers (which is how we enjoyed them), or a good after school snack for kids perhaps!

Oven Baked Zucchini Chips
Ingredients:
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons water
1 egg, beaten
2 1/2 cups 1/4 inch sliced zucchini (about 2 small)
Cooking Spray

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, garlic powder and pepper in a medium bowl.  Place egg and water in a shallow bowl and whisk together.  Dip zucchini slices in egg mixture and then dredge in breadcrumb mixture.  Place coated slices on an oven-proof wire rack coated with cooking spray, placed on a baking sheet.  Bake for 30 minutes or until browned and crisp.

Beach Party Cupcakes AND 100th Blog Post

I saw these cupcake pops on Bakerella's site and just knew I had to use the idea sometime. When thinking about something fun to make for 4th of July I thought about something summery that the kids would enjoy so obviously a cute cupcake would do the trick and what's more fun in the summer than fireworks and swimming? Not much, I'll tell you that! Knowing that everything is fireworks galore on the 4th I decided to go the swimming route and make these cupcakes. Not only were they adorable, it really only took an extra 10 minutes to decorate than if I were to frost a plain-jane cupcake. Surf's Up! (aw man, I wish I had made some surfin little dudes! I'll have to remember that for next time!)

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.
