If you’re looking for a simple appetizer or snack when tomatoes are in season, these tasty little bites are a great way to enjoy the harvest. Even off season, cherry tomatoes have the best flavour so you don’t have to wait until your garden is overflowing to make Cream Cheese and Olive Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes.
I would love to take credit for this recipe but it’s not mine. I found it on the internet last year and made the loaf. It was so good I couldn’t believe it was packed full of zucchini! The concept of delicious and nutritious is a joke, right? But in this case, I have to say….there is some nutritional value with all that zucchini. I made another batch and used some whole wheat flour and reduced the sugar so now it’s even MORE nutritional. This version of the recipe makes 12 perfect Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins.
Chunks of farmers sausages in a sweet and sour sauce, Baked Sausage with Peaches is sweet, sour and really really good. After all, pork and fruit are perfect companions. Think pork chops and apple sauce. And sweet plus heat? Besties.
The local corn and tomatoes are in full swing! Sometimes our eyes are bigger than our stomachs when we buy corn. This is an excellent recipe to use up leftover cooked corn. It’s also a great idea when you have different sizes of tomatoes ripe in the garden at the same time.
There are a variety of fish species in Lake Erie and pike is one of our favourites. They’re best caught in very cold water so spring is a great time to enjoy some fresh caught pike. You can make Blackened Pike Tacos with any type of fish that’s thick and dense enough to stand up to the blackening process without falling apart.
