Jaclyn Bell

 I'm a blessed wife and mother with a huge love of cooking!  I'm no professional chef, photographer or web page designer, but I love food and that's what matters =)!  Food is a big part of my life.  My family often jokes around about me saying "food is my life" when I was only about 8 years old.  Food is always on my mind.  I'm always trying to think up the next great meal or dessert.  I'd have to say I'm a greater fan of desserts than the actual meal so you may find more desserts on my blog versus entrees.  Life is meant to be enjoyed and good food is a key factor in that =).

Zucchini Patties with Feta

This is the first time I’ve ever tried zucchini patties (aka fritters) and I’m happy to say I actually loved them! I adapted this recipe from Bon Appetit, and added a few of my own slight changes like adding garlic and lemon, then I topped it with a sauce that’s similar to tzatziki (minus the chunky cucumber). I definitely preferred these hot out of the skillet while the edges were still crisp and the insides were soft ....more
