Crispy Perfection

The panko and parmesan coating gets nice and crispy as does the zucchini slice, but with a slight chew in the middle. They hold up great for dipping in a thick sauce or hummus and were fabulous on top of a hearty lunch salad!

Vegetables for Picky Kids

My boys are getting pickier and pickier these days so I’m having to up my game when it comes to sneaking fruits and veggies into their meals. I’ve found that smoothies are a shoe-in for fruits. And baking veggies with a crispy coating on them tricks the boys into thinking they’re eating fries. So that’s what we do and it works. Now I can sleep at night knowing that they’re eating something other than cookies and ice cream!

A Zucchini Recipe You’ll Fall in Love With

Zucchini is coming into season so I’m dying for the boys to fall in love with it as much as I do. Sure, I’ve baked it into brownies and cakes, but that kind of defeats the purpose of striving for a well-balanced diet for all of us.

The boys are all about chips, so I thought why not bake up some thin slices of zucchini with a crispy coating so they’d think they were eating real chips, but really they’d be filling themselves with veggies! It worked and they love them!
