Double Chocolatey Zucchini Muffins

Double Chocolatey Zucchini Muffins by Denise Sherin

These muffins are so delicious! They are great for breakfast or a snack. They freeze well, so you can pull out one at a time to throw in a lunchbox. My son loves them and he grates the zucchini! Great way to use up extra zucchini. I use the larger size on the grater, the small size turns the zucchini to a wet mush. ** Also…

Stuffed Peppers - Mexican Taco Style

Stuffed Peppers - Mexican Taco Style by Denise Sherin

Stuffed Peppers are so easy to change up flavor wise. These are made with a Mexican taco flavor. I used cous-cous instead of rice because my son doesn't really like rice. But you can use rice, cracked wheat or quinoa whatever you like. I also use mild chilies but for a spicier dish you could use jalapenos. For the meat in this…

Stuffed Peppers - BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Style

Stuffed Peppers - BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Style by Denise Sherin

I love stuffed peppers. But my son doesn't like rice and wasn't a fan of the plain flavor of the tomato sauce. So I created these peppers knowing the flavors of BBQ bacon cheeseburger would appeal to him. I used orzo in place of rice. Needless to say he ate 2 and a half at dinner and has asked for all the leftovers to be his…

Broccoli Cole Slaw with Craisins

Broccoli Cole Slaw with Craisins by Denise Sherin

This is one of those things that you throw together because it's what you have on hand. I used bottled slaw dressing because I was in a hurry, I think a creamy caeser dressing would be nice too. It turned out that we really liked it as a different type of slaw. My son can't get enough of it, so we will be making it again.
