Roasted Maple Sriracha Broccoli ~ There are some days that it seems I am just surrounded by kids and they appear to be crawling out of the woodwork. I mean … they are everywhere. The house, the car, the yard and of course, at school when I am spending time on campus. Don’t get me wrong, […]

Baked Sesame Zucchini Chips ~ A few years ago our garden was over flowing with zucchini. This was a good problem to have at first but then it took a turn for the worst when it seemed every meal for weeks had some form of those long greenies in them and we couldn’t give them […]
