I love to cook and especially when I have something inspiring me. I am going to use these too big zucchini for some soup, a zucchini chocolate cake, a slice and some biscuits/cookies too.
This zucchini isn't too big so it will be served at dinner tonight. The tomatoes will go along with some parsley and other goodies to make a tabouli.
I am very much a cook who is inspired by what I have. I will first see what is in the garden or fridge and pantry and then consult the recipe books rather than find a recipe and then hope I have the ingredients. I do however on occasion see a recipe that I would like to make and then go about buying the ingredients.
Pistachio and cranberry biscotti
I saw this recipe on Viv's blog and it tempted me enough to buy some dried cranberries. I'm glad I did. My biscotti might be a little more toasted in appearance than it should be but it is delicious and it was simple to make and might just be on the healthy side as far as baked goods go.
