Today is another recipe that you can use with the soft wrap bread, but pitas work well if you don’t want to make the wrap bread. A little while ago I was contacted by a company called Barhyte Specialty Foods who produces a food line called “Saucy Mama”. They sent some of their products to... Read More

So I have seen Greek places in the mall’s food court that sell gyros, but I’ve never had one before. When I saw this recipe on My Kitchen Cafe using the soft wrap bread recipe I shared yesterday, I had to try it. So this is my first experience with a gyro. Melanie at My... Read More

Soft Wrap Bread

When I saw this recipe for soft wrap bread on the King Arthur’s Flour, I absolutely had to give this recipe a try. It looked and sounded fabulous. It isn’t hard to make either, it just takes time. You need about 2 hours to make this but it is so worth it. Most of that... Read More

Lemon Blueberry Zucchini Cake

Here is another new way I found to use up my zucchini. I love lemon and blueberries together so why not add zucchini. I found this recipe at Kara’s Kitchen Creations. This cake turned out delicious. It was dense and moist. I don’t think you’d ever guess it was made with zucchini. My only complaint... Read More

Pork Skewers and Summer Social Retreat ’09

Today’s recipe was one I found in a Rachel Ray magazine. She has a section in there called the $10 Spot where they give you a recipe for a meal to feed four. The recipe included a rice side dish, but I am leaving that out of the recipe. The rice was really bland and... Read More

Today I an actually sharing 2 recipes. The first is a squash casserole. I found it on Southern Plate. Christy makes it with yellow squash, which I also did, but zucchini would work also. Christy even makes this sometimes with frozen squash. Now I only made a half a recipe because I’m the only one... Read More

Hummus Sandwich

I had never heard of a hummus sandwich until recently. I follow Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod on twitter. One day she tweeted that she had a hummus and veggie sandwich for lunch. I had never heard of such a thing. So I asked her about it. It’s basically a veggie sandwich. However,... Read More
