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.

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…

Foodbuzz 24x24: A Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party

It's hard to believe that my baby boy is technically no longer a baby anymore!  It seems like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck on our way to the hospital, and now all of a sudden I'm planning a birthday party!

Even before Ty was born though, I knew I wanted to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar party.  I'm not exactly sure what made me think of it, but one day I was sitting in his room and imagining reading him the first book I bought for him.  Yep - The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

There is something about the classic children's book that lends itself very well to entertaining.  Generally speaking, the focal point of any event (aside from the reason for celebration), is the food.    For those not familiar with the book - The Hungry Caterpillar is all about food!  He eats is way through many different foods, until he's big and strong and becomes a beautiful butterfly.  A perfect metaphor for a young baby.  It's amazing how much such a little guy can eat - but at th…

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too!
