  8. The chocolate crumb is ingenious, Serena. There is something about the texture of wheat flour that adds something je ne sais quo. But I do know your whole creation looks yummy!

  17. This looks delicious! I am bummed because zucchini season here is apparently coming to a close and I used my last two from the farmer's market tonight for zoodles. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will have some this weekend. I know I could use one from the grocery store, but I try to stick to my CSA and the farmer's market this time of year. If you have a moment, I would love it if you would link it up with us at Foodie Fridays...our party this week is closed, but our next one starts at 9 pm Thursday night, EST. Regardless, I'm pinning this. :)

My biggest dislike is lima beans, please don't ask for a recipe... My husband Colt regularly joins me in the kitchen and has become the primary photographer of our site. I hope you'll join us on our fun cooking adventure!
