The most divine Zucchini

I like zucchini but I never knew I could be in love with it until I made Zucchini Au Gratin.  I love Potato Au Gratin so why not Zucchini? I really wasn't sure what I was doing when I made the Zucchini I am not even sure you can call it Au Gratin but, Papie said it reminded him of potato Au Gratin so I went with it.  Were running out of food in the house and I needed to go to the grocery store ASAP but I had a lot of miscellaneous things in the fridge I wanted to use. So in to the baking dish it all went!


Olive Oil
4-5 Small to Medium Zucchini
1 cup cheddar cheese (I'm sure any cheese would be delicious but cheddar is all I had on hand)
1/4 Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1  teaspoon spoon salt
1/2 table spoon garlic powder
fresh cracked ground pepper
1 table spoon dried parsley flakes
1 1/2 table spoons butter.

Grease baking dish with olive oil so cheese doesn't stick.  Cut Zucchini into round slices that aren't to thin so they have a little bit of a bite to them.  Mix all ingredients except bread crumbs and butter in a medium size bowl and then transfer to baking dish. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top of zucchini and slice up butter into cubes and spread over bread crumbs so breadcrumbs will get a nice golden crunch to them.

Bake for 350 degrees for 50 min

I think this will be a great side for Thanksgiving!!  Hope you enjoy it!

Chicken Chili is a great figure friendly fall dinner

I love all things Chili especially in the fall!  I wanted to make a chili that didn't contain red meat so I took my traditional recipe and added shredded chicken instead.  It came out great!  It was so tasty and less greasy than regular chili with ground beef.  Next time I want to try to add more veggies such as carrots and zucchini.  


1 Whole cooked  roasted chicken shredded or 3-4 cooked chicken breast shredded
2 cup frozen corn
1 medium yellow onion
1 green pepper
4 stalks of celery
1 package chili seasoning
2 15 oz cans chili beans
2 15 oz cans chopped tomato's with chills

Dump all ingredients in to crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours

Book Love!

Heaven is for Real!

I just got done reading the most unique and amazing book.  My sister gave me this book to read after a friend recommended it to her.  It was not the type of book I would normally read. But it makes you appreciate life more, the title really just says it all.  I enjoyed it so much I purchased it for my mother in law.  Click HERE to get your copy now!
