This brought a hint of Fall to a July meal…the cornbread slices(I did gluten free & Vegan ..the blueberries simmered with cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar, onions, ginger…poured over marinated cornbread-dredged & grilled, browned squash…This was TASTY.
If you are going lighter on the carbs these days, you can go without dredging the squash in cornbread mix and not having the slices of cornbread at all.
Here are pics of both versions, the first being cornbread free, with just the sweet and simmered blueberry chutney paired with the smoky grilled and marinated squash, Mmmm!
The second has been dredged through cornbread mix and then combines the richerness or cornbread slices, blueberry chutney and smoky squash IN EACH BITE IS OVER THE TOP!!
And the Recipe is Here

Oh my have I got a goodie for us!! Smokiness of a grill, sweetness, of strawberries, mint, blend in cilantro and marinated Portobello caps….all over a honey brushed lightly grilled bun..YUM!!!
Yes, it was as good as it sounds! It was delicious without the bun, very clean, and then I added the honey brushed lightly grilled bun, for a little decadence, (vegan, gluten free) and that took it over the top
Here is a pic from the grill: MMMMMmm!
Here is a pic of the finished product pre-honey-brushed-bun (I slid the bun behind the first cap when I added it)

Sweet Ohio Harvest. …..That wonderfully smoky flavor of the grill…who loves summer!?? The smokiness of the grill is high on my list of likes about this fabulous sun kissed warmth drenched season!…have a look at this
I combined the leftovers of this recipe Sautéed Squash,Tomatoes & Vegan Bacon with making this Black Beans, Whatever’s on Hand Over Rice and
….Holy OUT Of This WORLD Batman!!!
I added the sautéed squash/tomatoes/bacon recipe combo to the Black bean recipe at the point the recipe directs you to ‘add whatever veggies you have on hand’…..and Voila!..I think the red wine vinegar and bacon and added veggies of this recipe combined with all the spices and black beans with rice of the other…WHOA. All I can say is FLAVOR XPLOSION AMAZINGNESS!!!
..Took this leftover concoction to another level…Try it out..HOLY YUM!!!
Holy snikies!!….Hold onto your socks!! This recipe is awesome.
This Julia Child recipe tweaked Vegan is WOWZERS! I have images in my mind of serving this as a main course with 2 canapes (…sort of slantedly laid leaning against each other and sprinkled about with fresh parsley…) topped each with a ‘filet of beef’ (Portobello cap;) then topped with the basted & broiled artichoke bottom, crowned & polished with Bearnaise!!!
Cut it in half, to 1 canape, as an appetizer or beginning course.
My gosh, isn’t it exciting, all the options we have to cook??! I love it
The Recipe is Here….!!!
Check out the vid for info, tips, tricks…..YUM!!

MMMmmmm MMM! You can make this with the grilled pita points to add a smoky sustenance or over fresh escarole for a lighter, cleaner bit of a warm salad, by itself as a vegetable to something else…or heck over pasta if you are fine with the carbs ….SO Good!
Here’s a pic of it over fresh escarole, which is a great-fast-need-something-to-take-with Tupperware dish…and a REALLY nice pre-course for dinner or entertaining!! Everyone will be so impressed
…And you can show them how well they can eat and live VEGAN!
Here’s a pic of it over escarole

..A group of your good friends, good food and good wine..BEST recipe of all
I got to cook for my friends last night, which was super fun…super fun! A lot of times I’m cooking just for me and it is SO much fun to get to do it with friends…hear if they think things are tasty too….especially when none of them are Vegan
Each course was Vegan..AND A HIT!!
We had Spicy Moroccan Chickpeas (which I had posted on the blog in the Spring Here
We wrapped it up with Strawberry Waffles on a Stick (recipe Here)with powdered sugar & maple syrup….Everyone literally surrounded the stove lol
And we kicked it all off with this tasty little appetizer, Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos! Now these happen to be the biggest fattest jalapenos I’ve ever come across, so they happen to be SUPER STARS for stuffing!
Here’s a pic of the final product, a quick vid of friends eating them (lol) and the Recipe is Here!

Check out how BEAUTIFUL these are on the video!! I stuffed yellow zucchini, lengthwise, like a chicken breast. They’re beautiful and better yet, my friend Robin and I were like YUM!!!
This was new to me, but I always thought of green zucchini and yellow squash as the same thing, different colors. Wrong!…
I got yellow zucchini from a farmer market as well as yellow squash for this recipe. Look at the difference in the video! The yellow zucchini are VIVID yellow, like deep bright yellow. They’re a little firmer, hold their firmness a little more and were fabulous for the recipe. The squash were too though they didn’t stay as firm so the cooking time is a little less for them, keep that in mind when you make these.
But Easy, Fun, and SO TASTY!!!

Wooowoooo!!! Gosh I love great food. I heard a quote recently “..there is no purer truer love than the love for great food..”
I’ve never thought about succotash before. It never caught my attention, drew me…never occurred to me that it was right on.
….Well, working at Cypress restaurant here in Charleston SC (highly recommend you check it out! Google it. The chef is renowned.) I tried succotash for the first time. Was it the succotash…is it the amazing artistry of our chef….I don’t know, but I was inspired..AGAIN..which happens to me regularly at Cypress.
So here is my vegan version. So clean, roasted, warm, so good MMMMmmmmMM!
The recipe is Here
Check out the vid to see what it looks like MMM!!
