Zucchini Casserole

 Zucchini is perfectly cooked in a deliciously creamy sauce, between two layers of crispy stuffing, in this comforting summer casserole.





Woooo, is it hot out. Everyone here tells us to quit complaining since winter and snow will be here in no time. I'm not complaining, I'm just making an observation. I LOVE summer! I love spending our days at the cottage getting some sun, canoeing and fishing . I just wish I'd stop burning already, LOL. 

Another thing I like about summer is all the fresh vegetables! I love that stores finally carry local produce. I love stopping by farm stands and supporting local farms. I love that we planted our own little garden this year.  I LOVE eating garden fresh veggies and fruit. I was super excited when we finally grew a HUGE zucchini in the garden about a week ago. 

A while back I stumbled on this zucchini casserole recipe. I snapped a picture of it, to make at a later date. With our delicious zucchini ready to be eaten,  I took the opportunity to finally make it.I really love how this casserole turned out. It was creamy, the zucchini was cooked tender crisp and the stuffing added a nice crunchy heartiness to it. This would make a great side dish, but I decided to serve this as a meatless meal, with some slice tomato on the side.






Zucchini Casserole

1 large zucchini (mine was about 6 inches long and 3-4 inches in diameter)
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 large carrot, grated
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 can cream of chicken soup (or homemade equivalent)
1 C sour cream (I ended up using Bison's French Onion Dip)
1 box stuffing mix
1/2 C butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cut zucchini in half and then cut each half into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place zucchini and onion into boiling water and cook 5 minutes. 

In a large mixing bowl combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, garlic and carrot. Using a slotted spoon, remove zucchini and onion from the water and place into sour cream mixture. Toss to combine and set aside. 

In a separate bowl, combine the stuffing mix with the melted butter. Spread half the stuffing mixture into a 9 inch casserole dish. Top with the zucchini mixture and sprinkle remaining stuffing mixture on top. 

Bake for 20 minutes; until top is a deep golden colour. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
