Vegetable with a Plot (Don't trust the zucchini!)

Ah, summer. One of my favourite things this time of year is shopping at the Farmer's Market on Friday mornings. By now, in late July, all the stands are loaded with fresh, colourful fruit and vegetables and the air fairly zings with the pungent scent of basil. It feels good to support local growers while stocking my pantry with feasts for a week....more

Fantastic 100% whole grain zucchini bread recipe: food allergy-friendly and still so good!

I’ve been unable to make much zucchini bread this season, which is terribly sad since it freezes really well and can be made in a zillion delicious varieties and all things being equal is a pretty healthy dessert option. Today however the stars aligned and I was able to knock out a few batches of zucchini bread with the last of the summer squash from the farm. My recipe eats up a good amount of zucchini, uses 100% organic whole grains, is lower in fat than traditional recipes, and is wheat free, dairy free, and soy free (it is not gluten free or sugar free, and if you add in chocolate chips, all bets are off). ...more

It does sound good and full of healthy ingredients.
