Quarantine Cuisine: 20 Recipes for a Memorial Day in Lockdown

Let's face it: this Memorial Day weekend will not be like any we've had before. Sure, it's the first signal of summer, but kids have been home for the last 3 months. Summer seems like it started in March this year because of the pandemic. Not only that, but you can rule out any large… Continue reading Quarantine Cuisine: 20 Recipes for a Memorial Day in Lockdown

Shrimp Scampi Spaghetti Squash

That's a lot of alliteration right there in the title. Shrimp. Scampi. Spaghetti. Squash. I swear it was unintentional. It just happened. I just had a spaghetti squash ready to go the other day and shrimp scampi sounded like the perfect meal to make with it. I love that buttery, garlicky dish. It's so rich… Continue reading Shrimp Scampi Spaghetti Squash

Caprese Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

I thought I was done experimenting with spaghetti squash. I thought I had done all that I could with that gourd. I've made spaghetti (obviously), chicken parm, alfredo, lo mein, primavera, BBQ chicken, cajun chicken, chicken piccata, chicken marsala...all with that bright yellow squash. What's left to do?!

Chicken Bacon Ranch Stuffed Zucchini

I've been up since about 2:45 this morning. What have I been doing in the 3ish hours I've been up? Freaking myself out by watching old episodes of Unsolved Mysteries. I remember watching this show as a kid with my mom and scaring myself to death. Once, there was an episode about a man spontaneously… Continue reading Chicken Bacon Ranch Stuffed Zucchini

Bacon & Spaghetti Squash Fritters

When I was a kid, my mom would make two types of "fritters" (or as we would call them, "patties"): tuna and squash. I would also be so giddy when she made these special patties. I've shared with you the squash patty recipe before, but I honestly can't remember how my mom made the tuna… Continue reading Bacon & Spaghetti Squash Fritters
