Zucchini Noodles

I found pre-made zucchini noodles at the store and I had to try it.

I did mix the the zucchini noodles with regular spaghetti noodles. I was thinking there wasn't going to be enough for everyone. I was also thinking that my family was going to be turned off by veggie noodles. I thought it was tasty. Next time I would like to make my own noodles, but I don't have the tools to make veggie noodles.

Ashley's Chocolate Chip Cookies

My daughter Ashley had modified a soft sugar cookie recipe into a chocolate chip cookie recipe.
This cookie has been a big hit. It does take more like a sugar cookie to me.

So here is the recipe

3/4 cup (6 oz) butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla
6 oz chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 t salt

1. Mix butter and sugars until fluffy.
2. Add egg, beat until incorporated.
3. Stir in egg yolk and vanilla until combined.
4. Scrapping the sides, add the chocolate chips, flour, baking soda, and salt.
5. Bake 8-12 minutes.

Greek Frozen Yogurt

I had whipped up some frozen yogurt by combining what I had left from a 1 quart container of Greek yogurt, 1 cup of sugar, about 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/3 baking cocoa, and a teaspoon of vanilla and churned it in my ice cream machine.

I thought it was pretty good, my husband hated it

Tasty Eats

This is a Food Network worthy meal. The Italian Gyro recipe came from Chopped cookbook I got at Christmas time.
The pasta salad is from the current issue of Food Network Magazine.

The brownie is from a brownie mix. However, I had some coffee flour from Trader Joe's and there is a recipe for these brownies on the coffee flour bag.

What I have is a 🥕 carrot that was starting to go bad and started to sprout, so I decided to plant the carrot. In the fall it would be interesting to see what the carrot has become.
