Zucchini Rollups – Casserole Recipe with a Mexican Twist

I was looking for a recipe which was easy, tasty and low in carbs, so I came up with a Zucchini Rollups Casserole. This recipe resembles Stuffed Shells with a Mexican twist, as I used Mild Salsa and Mexican blend shredded cheese, and the pasta was substituted by zucchini slices. If you prefer the Italian version, all you have to do is to use different cheeses, spaghetti sauce and Italian spices.
You may pair it up with a garden salad to have a scrumptious light lunch or dinner.

Autumn Blooms in My Garden

Autumn is in a full swing already, so my flower and vegetable garden changes with the season as well.  Lots of my vegetables are done, and many of the summer flowers stopped blooming, however there are many beautiful fall flowers still sparkling in my Fall Garden.

Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shavel) – Recipe

If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).

You can find a ready made Shchav, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but it’s taste does not measure up to the fresh, home made version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.
