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.

Chubaty Fruit Squares – Ukrainian Recipe

We have a lot of super talented bakers in our parish, and they all love to share their favorite recipes.
This is one of those yummy recipes I received, since I really loved this dessert.
I cut down on the original amount of sugar, since the ready made pie filling I used, is quite sweet. 
If you wish to make your own filling, which most likely will be less sweet than this one, you may want to add an extra 1/2 cup of sugar to the dough.  I prefer it just the way I posted it.
