Zucchini Cheddar Pancakes

Fresh Zucchini made into delightful fritters or pancakes!

I didn’t grow up eating zucchini pancakes. I never even had a zucchini pancake until several years after Rod and I were married. We had a bumper crop of zucchini and were trying to eat as much as possible. Rod decided to make zucchini cheddar pancakes. They were an instant hit and have become a staple every summer since.Zucchini Cheddar Pancakes

Summer is starting to wind down for us. The kids’ first day is the Tuesday after Labor Day, but I am already back at school…planning for the upcoming school year. As an elementary school principal, the start of the school year is such a busy time of the year. The tough part for me is this is just when our garden is ready to harvest.  (more…)

Years ago a friend made this dish for me for dinner. She wrote down the recipe on a realtor’s note pad (one with the realtor’s pictures and phone number). The recipe has been buried deep down in my old fashioned recipe file. I still remember how delicious this chicken was and when I stumbled upon the recipe, I knew I had to make it. The pictures of the realtors on the note pad is hilarious….totally dates the recipes back 20+ years! The hair, the mustache, the shoulder pads! It’s a good thing great recipes don’t go out of style!
