Anyone else have a crazy amount of zucchini this time of year? Get excited about your bountiful squash "problem" and make these Fried Zucchini with Chipotle Honey Dipping Sauce.
Does someone in your family have a restaurant that they always need to go to for every occasion? We sure do. My grandparents love this local Italian place. It's good, but not oh-my-gosh-this-is-spectacular-and-I-need-to-go-here-every-single-chance-I-get good.
My grandparents go every single Sunday for pizza. For birthdays, anniversaries, and the like, the entire family gets an invite to order from the "real menu". I don't even need to look at it at this point. I know my go-to order.
Chicken Parm with a side of fried zucchini. Their fried zucchini is the stuff. So freaking good. And they don't just give a few little rinky-dink pieces. It's comes as a mountain of cripsy, golden brown goodness.
And now I'm bringing that mountain to our house... trying my hand at fried zucchini for the first time. Here's my Fried Zucchini with Chipotle Honey Dipping Sauce.
We made it! The final day of the #TABASCO10 Challenge. 5 short days, 5 original recipes, and only 10 ingredients to work with (minus fennel, since it's icky).
This was so much fun. When I first agreed to take on this beastly challenge, I figured it would be a piece of cake. Then I started thinking about these little 9 ingredients, and guys... it's hard! It was like putting on a culinary straightjacket. But then this funny thing happened. I learned how to dance in my straightjacket... to get a little creative with the ingredients I had.
And I can honestly say... this was one heck of a delicious week.
