"Well, you won't starve..." Fridays

I am surrounded by creative people.  Musicians.  Artists.  Writers.  and Thinkers.  Yes....Thinkers.

And being a deep thinker myself, I enjoy reading the musings and ponderings of other deep thinkers.  So, a few years ago, my dear son started taking guitar lessons from a great musician who happens to be married to a great thinker. Someone sent me a link to her "thinking blog" and I began to quietly stalk follow her and appreciate her thoughts as she processed some deep subjects.  Then, out of nowhere, she surprises with a new food blog entitled "Well, you won't starve!"  What irony!

And oh how I loved it!  The title stuck with me (as did some of her recipes) and so out of honor for her creativity and humor, I have "borrowed" her blog title and started a Friday series.

It is here where I will post Newbie recipes (meaning those recipes we have tried and liked) or our current Family Favs (those recipes that get a thumb's up).  I would love to maybe have a "Recipe Party" where we can share some Family Favs and possibly get new ideas from each other.  Of course, that means everyone needs to be cooking....and have a blog to post the recipe so you have a place to link.  Oh well...maybe in the future.....

NEWBIE RECIPE:  Zucchini Fries

This is a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables!  And some adults too:)!


  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable cooking spray


Preheat oven to 425°. Cut zucchini into 3-inch sticks. Whisk an egg white in a small bowl, and add milk. Combine Parmesan and seasoned breadcrumbs in a separate bowl. Dip zucchini sticks into egg mixture, and then roll in breadcrumb mixture. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray, and place zucchini on sheet. Bake for 25–30 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. You are so so kind! I am blushing! :) And I had 4 zucchini on my counter that I couldn't get to and had to throw them away (!) since we were going on vacation. I wish I had this recipe then!

    Looking forward to Fridays!!!!

    And thank you!

  2. YUM! I love fried Zucchini, so I like the idea of doing it a bit healthier. We may just have to try this next week!!

  3. Amy...I have been there - looking at zucchini and wondering what I was going to do with them! Hence the desperation to find a new recipe!

    And Rachel...I have never fried zucchini - do you mean like Fried Okra or Fried Squash?

  4. Yup - just like Fried Squash.

    I made this recipe last night - they were delicious!! Chris and I loved them, and Ali marginally liked them with Ketchup. :) And I figured the calories on them, and they were VERY low cal!

    Thanks for the idea!


We love please feel free to leave some:)....
