Get Cookin’
  • Oil the grill grates (tip: use oil on a paper towel), then preheat grill to medium-high.
  • Cut the zucchini into thick slices about 3/4 inch think.
  • Grill the zucchini 7-8 minutes, or until there are some grill marks and it’s starting to be tender.  – Remove the zucchini from the grill, putting them grilled-side up on a cutting board you can use to take them to the kitchen.  
  • Add sauce, cheese and other topping as desired. 
  • Put loaded zucchini slices back on the grill and cook 7-8 minutes more with grill lid closed. (check them every few minutes to see when the cheese is melted and the toppings are lightly browned) 
  • Remove zucchini pizzas from grill and serve hot. 
  • Bon appetit!

"sunshine" in a jar

While I have yet to find sunshine in a jar, I came pretty close to discovering it when I stumbled upon these little recipes containing baked sweetness and yummy treats in mason jars. 

cupcake in a jar 
chili & cornbread in a jar

margaritas in a jar
rainbow cake in a jar
peach cobbler in a jar 
Cakes baked in jars can be topped with traditional metal canning lids and stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. What a terrific idea! These personal-sized treats would make the perfect gift to ship to someone or to be used as party favors.  Afterall, who doesn’t love sunshine in a jar?
