Zucchini Cheese

Fall is a busy time.  Preparing for winter takes up a lot of that time.  Harvesting gardens also takes some time.  But what do you do with all the zucchini?  Of course you can add it into lots of things, but how about zucchini cheese?  Here’s a recipe I found that works great.

1 cup (7 oz.) Zucchini

1/4 cup Water

1 TBSP Coconut Oil

1 tsp Lemon Juice

Salt

1 1/2 tsp Agar powder

Steam the zucchini and water for five minutes, drain the water off.  Throw it in the blender along with the rest of the ingredients, and whiz.  If you want a cheezy sauce, it’s ready to go.  If you want cheese, throw it back in the pot and cook it for a few minutes.  Take it out of the pot and pour it very thinly onto a 9×13 parchment paper lined pan.  Let it set in the fridge for a couple hours or until firm.

Have fun and experiment!

Filet Crochet, (it rhymes!)

Filet Crochet, sounds complicated, doesn’t it?  Actually it’s not!  Filet crochet is making pictures out of yarn by using open and closed boxes.  Still sound complicated?  Filet crochet is really just one simple stitch along with a simple variation on that same stitch!  My latest yarn project I’m working on is a picture of a horse head using this technique.  (Pictured below)  So many things sound too complicated.  So many things aren’t attempted because they sound complicated.  When you want to try something new, don’t let a fancy name scare you off!  For those of us who knit, we know that a blanket, or sweater aren’t just thrown together.  We have to take it one stitch at a time.  A lot of hard things can be broken down into small, simple steps.  Just take it one step at a time.  Try something new!IMG_0862
