Oven-Baked Summer Squash Fries (Should Be in Your Winter Recipes)

A summer squash has a strong resemblance, in flavor and texture, to a zucchini. You can, in fact, substitute zucchini in this recipe, but it will probably bake a bit more quickly.



Ingredients:


1 medium summer squash
2 eggs
1 ½ cups breadcrumbs (try panko breadcrumbs for a crunchier texture)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon mustard powder
Salt and pepper
Olive oil


How to Make It:


Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a large baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.


Cut your summer squash into wedges. Remove the seeds if they are quite large and set wedges aside.


Whisk the eggs in a dish and set aside.


In another dish, combine the breadcrumbs, paprika, mustard powder and salt and pepper.


Start by dipping the wedges, one by one, into the egg mixture and then the breadcrumb mixture. Place each wedge on the greased baking sheet. Continue until all the wedges are done.


You can bake the wedges as is for about 30-40 (until soft inside and golden brown on the outside) as is, but if you want a more golden texture, drizzle or spray some olive oil on top of the wedges. Flip halfway through baking.


Serve with ranch or another favorite dip.

Deviled Eggs Recipes for Halloween

It's that time of the year again. This is the week to make your final preparations to celebrate the Halloween holiday! When not working on my blogs, my online activity sometimes involves chatting with friends on myLot.com, a social network that pays you to make friends and engage in friendly banter.


A member at that site asked what would I bring to a party. My response was two things: a fruit platter and deviled eggs. The question brought back a a memory about all the church fellowships I've attended and all the office parties at my old jobs. Somebody always remembered to bring deviled eggs and that tray was usually the first party food to disappear! Decided to find some Halloween themed deviled eggs recipes to share. Hope you like them!!

Care To Share Your Eggplant (Aubergine) Recipe?

Love to watch cooking shows on TV. One of my favorite TV chefs is Nigella Lawson (nigella.com). She taught me what an aubergine was. Aubergine?? Oh! You mean eggplant!! :)

On the hunt for eggplant recipes.

Shared a few recipes via my foodie blog for roasted eggplant, ratatouille, marinated eggplant, eggplant patties, and a salad recipe made with eggplant and zucchini.

Want more eggplant recipes! More! More!!

Why?
The food experts say that for 2017 and beyond, “purple is the new green” and everybody is supposed to be eating more purple veggies. Sure! Eggplants are not the only purple plants out there. But it's a good purple food to start with! Agree?  :)

One quick question:
  • Do you eat eggplant cooked or raw?


My husband and I enjoy listening to the music of smooth jazz vocalist Michael Franks. One of his songs that we really like is called “Eggplant”.

When my baby cooks her eggplant.
She don't read no book!


Yeah OK. He's not really singing about eggplant. But the lyrics are inspiring and might make you want to cook eggplant, even if you do have to read “how to” in a book!

Green Leafy Vegetables : On a Roll With Escarole

Made a New Year's Resolution for 2017 to eat more green leafy vegetables.  Been doing pretty good too!  It's September and this is, I confess, the only resolution I have managed to keep.  However, there is one green leafy vegetable I have yet to try.  So I collected some recipes.


Escarole a.k.a. common chicory, broad chicory, or Batavian endive, is a vegetable that I recently discovered can be cooked in a variety of delicious recipes.  Here is my collection.  If you have more please feel free to share in the comments.







Escarole and Bell Peppers With Olive Oil
  • By MARK BITTMAN
    New York Times Diner’s Journal
    ”This classic braised escarole dish, which uses a series of techniques that can be applied to almost any green vegetable, relies on a hefty amount of garlic and olive oil, which are added both at the beginning and at the end of cooking, the final additions to freshen and intensify flavors.”


Escarole and Beans

  • By: KristaP: "This is a creamy concoction of escarole and beans. It's rich, and it's divine! It's also best served with a warm crusty Italian bread."


: Fettuccine with Escarole and Brie

  • Food & Wine's Grace Parisi use of escarole and brie in this recipe is masterful.


Escarole Sausage Soup

  • "I’m a fan of escarole. It’s a crunchy green with a bit more heft than lettuce, and it makes a great salad: on it’sown simply dressed or tossed with 10 other things to make a grand main course salad. In my heart though I’m a cooked greens fan, always. I like escarole cooked up with garlic in my Standard Cooked Greens Recipe: garlic oil heat cleaned cooking green: apply together and you have a great side dish or taco stuffing." –Julia


Chickpea Escarole Stew

  • By Molly Watson, About.com Guide "Loosely based on leblebi, a Tunisian breakfast soup, this chickpeas and escarole stew is a quick and easy one-dish dinner. …"


Escarole Siciliano
  • By: Tammy
    "This lemony salad is served hot from the wok. Escarole is a bitter green, but can be less so when grown shielded from the sun. In general, lighter green leaves indicate a milder flavor. Thinly sliced tomatoes are a great accompaniment. This recipe can be doubled. For a larger party, cook in batches."




* * *  So many fabulous ways to enjoy this vegetable.  If these recipes are not enough there are lots more Escarole OR Endive Recipes.  * * *

Foodie Friday : Experiencing the Joy of Salsa

This week's Foodie Friday focus is on salsa!

* * *
There was once a time when the recipe for fresh salsa was simply diced tomatoes, onions, green bell peppers, lime juice, red pepper or a jalapeno, salt to taste; cilantro, optional. I love salsa!  It's a great way to eat your veggies.  Several years back, moved into a new neighborhood and was at the local grocery store. Walked down an aisle and on the shelves were bottles of every kind of salsa imaginable.





Some of them were made with sweet fruits like mangoes and peaches! Oh the wonder of it all! Had no idea salsa came in that many flavors. Gave me all kinds of foodie ideas. Sharing some recipes .

Why keep all these delicious delights to myself?
