Grilled Zucchini Low-Carb Lasagna with Italian Sausage, Tomato, and Basil Sauce (Gluten-Free)


Grilled Zucchin Slices made into Lasagna for a low-carb and gluten-free treat! (For Phase One Fridays I feature Phase One Recipes from the past that have been my personal favorites.  Phase One Recipes are also Low-Carb and Gluten-Free.  I love this method of making lasagna with thick slices of barely-grilled zucchini replacing the noodles, and this is a favorite zucchini dish I look forward to every fall.  This post was updated with better photos and instructions in September 2014.) This recipe is for vegetable gardeners in the northern hemisphere who might be wondering how to use those huge zucchinis that suddenly seem to appear overnight when the garden is winding down For years I've been making "lasagna" using zucchini in place of the lasagna noodles, and this is one of my favorite uses for those monster zucchinis that are inevitable if you have a garden.  Now that I am temporarily without a garden, I buy giant zucchini at the farmers market to make this !

Low-Carb Cauliflower Rice Southwestern Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Poblanos (Gluten-Free)


Delicious Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers with Southwestern Flavors! It's been more than four years since I first tried Cauliflower Rice, but I'm barely starting to explore the possibilities with this idea of substituting low-carb grated cauliflower for rice.  (So many recipes; so little time!

Parmesan Encrusted Zucchini Recipe


Parmesan Encrusted Zucchini is easy, quick, and delicious! (Updated with better photos and improved instructions, September 2014.)  This recipe for Parmesan Encrusted Zucchini is something I first made in September 2007, and it's been a favorite way to cook zucchini ever since then.  The recipe came from Vegetables Every Day by Jack Bishop, a very old book that I still use all the time to look for ideas for cooking vegetables.  When I first made this I used Jack Bishop's instructions for blanching the zucchini before broiling it with the cheese, but then a smart reader told me they just skipped the blanching and cooked the zucchini under the broiler as well.  That's the way I've been doing it for a few years now, so I am updating the instructions to change that step.  I like the zucchini to still have a tiny bit of crispness, and broilers can vary, so you may have to make this a couple of times to get the timing just right for your own taste.  Luckily this delicious zucchini coated with melted Parmesan is so delicious that you won't mind experimenting, and if you have any kids in the house I promise they will gobble up the experiments!

Rustic Pasta Sauce Recipe with Italian Sausage, Zucchini, and Sage


Rustic Pasta Sauce with Italian Sausage, Zucchini, and Sage is quick and delicious. (Updated with better photos and step-by-step instructions, September 2014.)  For a few weeks now I've been ignoring my gardenless situation and buying zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers at the farmers market.  Since I grew my own veggies for so many years, the archives on Kalyn's Kitchen has a lot of recipes for those garden veggies, and I've been making some of my favorites and updating the photos.  It's been fun eating those old favorite dishes again, but now there are only a few more weeks until the arrival of fall, and I'm realizing I better get some of those updated recipes posted while summer vegetables are still abundant!

Al's Hungarian Summer Squash with Sour Cream, Paprika, and Dill (Low-Carb)


This Hungarian Summer Squash with Sour Cream, Paprika, and Dill is another great recipe from Al! A few years ago I shared  Al's Famous Hngarian Cucumber Salad, and that amazing recipe from my friend Al has been a huge hit with everyone who tries it.  When I made that salad with Al, we talked about cooking together again, but I'm sorry to report that it's taken us nearly two years to tackle another Hungarian dish together.  Then I saw Al and his girlfriend Judy at a party recently and we made a plan for them to come over and make Hungarian Summer Squash with Sour Cream, Paprika, and Dill.  This Hungarian dish uses a combination of  zucchini and yellow squash with all those Hungarian flavors I like so much, and it turned out to be just as good as the cucumber salad.  We had a great time making it a few days ago, and if you have summer squash in the garden, you must try this recipe!

Kalyn's Kitchen Picks: Herb Scissors


If you're growing herbs, you'll love herb scissors!

Artichoke-Rosemary Frittata Recipe (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)


Artichoke hearts and cheese flavored with a bit of rosemary make this frittata extra flavorful. (Updated with better photos and step-by-step instructions, August 2014.)   I'm back from a wonderful cruise to Alaska, and ready to get back to sharing recipes.  When I looked at the photos of things I cooked before the trip, I thought maybe I'd have to give the Meatless Monday fans a raincheck this week, but then I remembered this delicious recipe for Artichoke-Rosemary Frittata that I made a couple of weeks ago to update the photos.

Vegan Tomato Salad with Cucumber, Avocado, Cilantro, and Lime (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, Paleo)


This combination of tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, and cilantro is one of my favorites! (Updated with step-by-step instructions and better photos, July 2014.)  This simple but perfect Vegan Tomato Salad with Cucumber, Avocado, Cilantro, and Lime is a favorite summer combination I came up with on a hot summer day in 2008, and when my former neighbor Carol stopped by I shared some with her.  Carol loved this combination just as much as I did, and even though it's a spin-off from my Summer Tomato Salad with Tuna, Avocado, Cilantro, and Lime, I decided that vegetarians were never going to look at that salad so this one deserved a post of its own.

Vegan Tomato Salad with Cucumber, Avocado, Cilantro, and Lime (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)


This combination of tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, and cilantro is one of my favorites! (Updated with step-by-step instructions and better photos, July 2014.)  This simple but perfect Vegan Tomato Salad with Cucumber, Avocado, Cilantro, and Lime is a favorite summer combination I came up with on a hot summer day in 2008, and when my former neighbor Carol stopped by I shared some with her.  Carol loved this combination just as much as I did, and even though it's a spin-off from my Summer Tomato Salad with Tuna, Avocado, Cilantro, and Lime, I decided that vegetarians were never going to look at that salad so this one deserved a post of its own.  The recipe calls for a lot of cilantro, which is no doubt one of the reasons I'm so enamored with the salad, but if cilantro is not your thing I think thinly sliced green onion would also be great.  And if you're lucky enough to have fresh garden tomatoes and cucumbers at this time of year, this salad is a perfect way to use them!

Cucumber Ribbon Salad with Peppers, Radishes, and Thai Dressing (Low-Carb, Can Be Paleo)


It took a few tries to perfect this Cucumber Ribbon Salad with Peppers, Radishes, and Thai Dressing! I'm back home for a few days, and what an amazing weekend I had in California where I ate at a couple of my favorite restaurants, hung out with some of my favorite bloggers, and attended BlogHer14.  At the conference I had a chance to re-connect with so many friends I've made from blogging and also hear from some incredibly inspiring women as well.  As I shared on Twitter, the biggest take-away for me from the BlogHer14 conference was that 10 years of women sharing our lives online has empowered all of us.  (If you want to see more about why I'm such a BlogHer fan, watch this video.)  As I mentioned in my last post, this week I'm leaving on a cruise to Alaska (!
