Hi everyone! it has been a while - busy summer! I hope you are all having a blast this summer and that your days are filled with great friends, family and food! I have a recipe to share with you which is so easy, but, sooo good - and it is all based around the zucchini! My son does not eat them, unless I cook them this way - so try it, even if you think you don't like zucchini!

You will need:

1 large zucchini (go to your local market and buy one or two - they are in season, and taste fantastic!)
2 cups or so of Italian style bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper
vegetable oil

In a bowl, beat the eggs and set aside. In a separate flat bottomed container, sprinkle the bread crumbs. On the stove, over med heat, place a non stick pan and fill the bottom with oil.

Slice the zucchini to about 1/4 " thickness. Dip the zucchini in the egg, then the bread crumbs, and then, dip into the oil and shallow fry for a few minutes on each side (they should be a golden brown in colour) sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve!

They also make a great appetizer - cut them a little thinker, and cook a little longer and top with your favourite toppping such as ricotta mixed with a little parmesan, salt and pepper, or a slice of tomato topped with a little mozzarella and basil.

You may also use them to decorate your favourite salad by putting them on top of a salad plate - they also add a little crunch!

Try them - you will love them!
