Fried Zucchini Batter

This is a super simple, very adaptable recipe to batter veggies for frying. I used zucchini, but it would work with just about anything you want to dip in a light batter and fry to airy crisp perfection. I ate these babies with (gasp!) no dipping sauce.

Zucchini “Crab” Cakes

I made these delightful "crab" cakes for my kids tonight so that my hubby and I could have Baked Salmon Cakes without worrying about my daughter's seafood allergy. Worked like a charm. Our dinner looked enough like theirs that there was no arguing or whining, and my 4 & 2-year-old chowed down on these cakes… Continue reading Zucchini “Crab” Cakes
