Vegetarian lasagna rolls

Hello Readers and Happy Monday,

Over the next few weeks I will be sharing with you amazing vegetarian recipes that will take a creative spin on some classics.

The first recipe I have for you I actually made for a client last week and it was yummy! Slightly time consuming in the beginning, but worth the effort.

Here is what you will need:

  • 6 Zucchini
  • 1 small container of ricotta
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 1 can crushed tomato
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 cup of shiraz
  • olive oil
  • salt/pepper

Before anything, make your tomato sauce. Take the crushed tomato and pour it into a pot on medium high, add garlic and shiraz season with salt and pepper let boil. Once it boils reduce to a simmer for about 10 mins until slightly reduced and turn off heat.

First you will need about 6 zucchini’s, your choice of green or yellow (aka summer squash).

Next cut them into medium thick strips. You should be able to get about 5 strips out of each zucchini.

Now, toss the strips in a bowl with a splash of olive oil, salt and pepper.

After the strips are seasoned, place them in a hot pan and cook on each side for about 2 mins. Flip only once. You want them soft to stuff and roll but firm enough so they don not fall apart.

Cook off all the strips and let them cool, once they are cooled you can stuff them and roll them up. I used ricotta and basil ( but here is a good place to insert your own creative twist)


Here are the zucchini rolls before baking them with sauce and extra cheese.

After you have made your rolls, get a baking pan and pour sauce on the bottom.

Place your rolls on top of the sauce and sprinkle extra cheese on top.

Here is the end result!

Thank you for reading, Until next time, Cheers!

Stuffed French Toast

Hello Readers, and Happy Monday,

French toast, a staple at the breakfast/brunch scene and receives other flavors very well. This particular style of French toast was designed to be tart and sweet. To accomplish that I took texas toast with cranberry relish cream cheese filling, using the cranberry relish recipe from a previous post.

Check out the recipe for this French toast on the From my notebook page.

ooey gooey cheese sauce

Hello Readers and Happy Monday,

My question to you this week is do you love macaroni and cheese? Alfredo sauce? Cheese and its gloriousness in general? well then let me tell you how to make the most silky cheese sauce from scratch at home.

Step 1 select your cheese. this step is crucial depending on what you are making and who it is for will determine the cheese you select.

Step 2 make a roux- take a half a stick of butter and melt it in a pot. next add about 1/4 cup of flour or more if needed and cook the flour with the melted butter. after about 2 or 3 mins of cooking slowly start to whisk in bout 2 cups of milk ( heavy cream works also) and add salt and pepper. Next add in your selected shredded cheese and gently whisk until combined. If you want to loosen your sauce just add more milk.

Step3 pour over your dish or mix it into cooked pasta.

Step 4 completely indulge in amazingly ooey gooey cheese sauce.
