A Summer Recipe Roundup

It has been quite some time since I’ve gotten around to posting some recipes on the blog. I wanted to share both some recipes I’ve tried as well as our Saturday Sampler recipes from this year.

This is one of the recipes that Denise sampled on Saturday for our Saturday Sampler. The pizza crust is made with zucchini! It was a big hit. Here are links to this year’s Saturday Sampler Recipes:


Swiss Chard

Summer Squash

It wouldn’t be summer without some sort of tomato salad! This simple salad didn’t even have a recipe. I just sliced up cherry tomatoes, cubed up some lemon-basil bread from the store, added mozzarella cheese, basil, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Then I gave it all a mix! Yum!

A while back I tried this recipe. Skillet Gnocchi with Chard, White Beans, and Tomatoes. It was a delicious and filling vegetarian meal. I used some frozen roma tomatoes I had from last year, fresh chard, and canned beans. Yum!

This is another recipe that I just kind of threw together this spring with what I had on hand. There’s some leftover ham and brats, boiled potatoes (turned fried potatoes), sugar snap peas, asparagus, and some herbs all sauteed in a little bit of oil.

Have you tried any delicious recipes with your home grown produce this year?
