Freezer Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches

I am not really a morning person. My husband gets up really, really early for work and knows better than to try to wake me up lets me sleep. In appreciation for this, I try to make sure that he has something that he can grab for breakfast. These pancake breakfast sandwiches are his favorite! It is basically like a McGriddle from McDonald’s. Except I know what is in these. I like to make a…

Easy Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Today I am sharing one of our best family recipes! We always called this “Silly Cake” because it has no eggs and mixes up right in the pan. It is perfect if you have an egg allergy or if you ran out but still want chocolate cake. Also, having no bowl to wash is great if you don’t like washing dishes. Are you sold on this cake yet? You should be. It is awesome! Also,…

The filling and zucchini/summer squash are OK, but the crust is what really makes this dish. I pinned this roasted veggie…

Baked Zucchini Gratin

I can’t believe I haven’t shared one of my FAVORITE zucchini recipes on the blog before! Baked zucchini gratin is one of the first zucchini dishes I ever tried. Yum…   Slice zucchini about 1/4″ thick or less and layer in a baking pan. You can also throw some sliced onion in there, but I usually don’t cause some people (i.e. myself) are picky. This time I was using yellow zucchini (peeled- see last sentence)…

New and Improved Zucchini Alfredo

We are continuing “Zucchini Week” here and so far it is going well! I am still freezing more than we can eat, but it will be good in casseroles and zucchini bread this winter. Tonight we had sausage, potato, and zucchini packets on the grill, but last night my husband wanted my new and improved version of zucchini alfredo. The original recipe is HERE, but we like this one better. It is creamier and the…
