Chop, chop, chop and get your frustrations out making this pasta salad with south-of-the-border appeal. Choose your heat level by amount of peppers, hot sauce and chilies you add. This yields a generous bowl and serves 12-14. Make this ahead of time and chill ~ if you can wait and can keep everyone out too!

This is cooking school 101. Easy - and impressive, which takes it to graduate school! Besides, I also have blueberries to use before this year's crop begins to fruit out. The end result is every bit as delicious as the photo appears.

Zucchini Chocolate Cake

Zucchini Chocolate Cake by Salad Foodie

If there's a most-requested recipe for my year this would be it. Mini-chocolate chips and chopped pecans serve as the "frosting" for this cake. I like to make this a day or night ahead, because I like the mini-chips to harden but if you like them soft and a little gooey, serve the same day.
