One Bowl Zucchini Bread

One Bowl Zucchini Bread

Zucchini is one of the fastest-growing vegetables you can plant in your garden – or, at least, it certainly seems like it at times! My zucchini plants start producing beautiful zucchinis early in the season and hang in there for months. I appreciate the bounty, but it can be difficult to keep up with the crop.

Vanilla Bean Cornmeal Slice and Bake Cookies

Vanilla Bean Cornmeal Cookies

I always have a couple of logs of slice and bake cookie dough in my freezer. They keep well for months (as long as you wrap them tightly and store them in an airtight bag or other container) and they are ready to bake at a moment’s notice. Since the cookies are so uniform in size, they can be used to make ice cream sandwiches ... Read More »
