Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini bread is always the favorite option for an excess of garden squash in the summer.

Chocolate chips are optional. I prefer it without, but many in our family like a generous studding of chocolate chips in their zucchini bread.

Chicken Souvlaki Kabobs

Chicken Souvlaki Kabobs

Souvlaki chicken is a flavorful Mediterranean dish. The chicken is marinated overnight in a mixture of Greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, and Greek herbs. During summer months I love to add fresh lemon thyme from my garden to the marinade and as a garnish on the cooked kabobs.

If you don’t want to prepare kabobs, you can also marinate the chicken thighs or breasts whole, and grill or roast the whole pieces of chicken until cooked through.

We like to serve these kabobs with roasted zucchini or asparagus, and with hummus and tzatziki dips. You can also serve these kabobs with warm pita bread, if desired.

Lemon Meringue No-Bake Cheesecake

Lemon Meringue No-Bake Cheesecake

A delicious marriage of lemon meringue pie and no-bake cheesecake!

If you make your own lemon curd, you will come out about even on the eggs, since lemon curd only uses yolks and the meringue topping only uses whites.

Lemon Meringue No-Bake Cheesecake 2

I like to line the inside of my springform pan with a 4” high acetate strip before adding the cheesecake filling (after cooking the crust). Sometimes these are called “cake collars.” This will help keep the sides of your cheesecake smooth when removing it from the pan. The strip will just peel off of the cheesecake after taking off the side of the springform pan.

Skillet Cod in Scallion Lemon Butter Sauce

Skillet Cod in Scallion Lemon Butter Sauce

I love to cook fish in a cast iron skillet. The filets get a nice sear, cook very quickly, and don’t stick. Deglazing the pan with an easy lemon butter sauce makes a quick and delicious meal.

I used fresh lemon thyme from my garden instead of parsley when I made it this time. If I didn’t have fresh thyme, I would have just used the parsley.
