I'm intrigued. I never would have thought of pairing zucchini and pineapple. :p


This sounds a lot like my grandma's zucchini bread recipe:

Beat 3 eggs, 1 c. of oil and 2 c. sugar. Stir into above mixture 2 c. peeled and grated zucchini and 3 tsp. vanilla. Sift together the following (or if you're like me and don't want to bother, just stir) and add to the above mixture: 3 c. flour, 1 t. salt, 1 t. baking soda, 2 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. baking powder, and 1/2 c. walnuts or pecans (optional). Bake in 2 standard loaf pans in 325 degree oven for 1 h.

I don't know how you feel about all of that oil, but it usually doesn't stop me from slathering a slice with butter afterward. :p
Intriguing. I'll take note.

Bratwurst glazed with beer jelly in a pretzel roll, carrots with dill, and golden beets marinated in a fantastic vinaigrette.

I slow cooked some ribs a few weeks a go. They were that tender that the meat fell off the bones when I tried to pick them up. Awesome :)

I had to stop making curry, my apartment would stink for weeks after. Tonight was rosemary lamb chops and mushroom risotto.

gef...do you like cooking on the gf grill? do you use it alot? hub had one when we first got married but it was such a pain in the butt to clean that we got rid of it. plus it seemed like if i cooked anything below 93/7 on there it would flood out the little catcher thing with grease. do you use super lean meat?

I made 12 patties....six at a time (big grill). I emptied the drip catcher before tossing on the next six and that was sufficient. Not super lean patties- I bought one of those frozen bags at Aldi.....85 percent if memory serves me right.

I like the grill- cleaning is easier when I slide it to the edge of the counter and use an old rag or disposable wipes to slide the mess into the trash can. It cleans easier when warm. Just a matter of wiping it and the surroundings down good- which is what I usually have to so when I use a pan.

Grilling chicken breasts then adding them to a mac and cheese dinner. I know, lazy, but we like it...

That's an autumn dinner. And I'd add frozen peas and carrots, mix bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese and butter, then bake.

Sauteed chicken breast cutlets served on big tortilla wraps with shredded cheddar cheese with tomatoes and sour cream. I made steamed brussel sprouts to go with it.
