  • Ecks, that zucchini spaghetti sounds intriguing. How do you do it? I was thinking of using zucchini to do a lasagna type dish...

    • Use a julienne peeler to julienne zuchinni into strips (Amazon.com: OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler: Kitchen & Dining)

      You can find them at most kitchen stores or home outfitter type places. (Bed bath and beyond is where I got mine)

      For a lazaugna just use a regular peeler to cut thin strips of zuchinni and layer it with whatever you were going to put in.

      • I love zucchini 'pasta!' And spaghetti squash too. Have you checked out Mark's recipes for sauces he posted the other day? Really, really good. They would be great on zucchini.

          • That's crazy! Is it because you're in Canada? Although I don't know why that makes any difference.

            • It isn't actually available from amazon's book store. I had to use one of their third party sellers. But I think it's just the christmas rush and that it's a little late in the season to be buying stuff.

              So quick sidebar- found a paleo brownie recipe. Delicious! I wish I could take credit for it but I can't.

              Here's a shot of one that I made last night. Well I made a batch... but still...



              I swapped the agave for honey. Used only a cup of honey. And I swapped the chocolate chips for bakers chocolate. I added a banana but I can't taste it so it wasn't worth adding it in. Either way I'm very happy with how this turned out.

                          • Maple syrup is still sugar. Better sugar, but sugar. As is honey. (Yes, I know, I'm being a grinch.) To be consumed in small quantities, and only occasionally, to avoid falling back into sugar addiction.

                            • :P My batch made 18 brownies. That's 1/18th of a cup of honey per brownie as I used bakers chocolate instead of chocolate chips. *playing devils advocate*

                              • LOL! Hey, I've made brownies too. And being in a rebellious frame of mind, I ate them all in two days... Next time I'll try to pace myself better.

                                I didn't gain weight though, as I considered them meals instead of snacks. Not good as a regular regime for sure, but seeing as I only did that piece of stupidity once, it hasn't ruined my life.
