Patty pan squash recipes aren’t nearly as numerous as zucchini recipes. But to me, summer isn’t summer without fresh patty pan squash (…and tomatoes, and zucchini, and onions, and lemonade).
Patty pans go by many names. Depending on where you’re from, you might call them sunburst squash, scallop squash, button squash, or white squash. I call them patty pans. It’s much more fun that way.
This simple patty pan squash recipe takes minutes to prepare and tastes like summer thanks to the abundance of fresh basil. (And yes, where I live, it is summer already, and will be for at least the next 4 months!)

Refried beans are one of my favorite comfort foods. They’re also cheap — dang cheap. And, they’re a tasty way to get lots of nourishing fats into you and your loved ones. The way I grew up, refried beans were one of life’s many mysteries. I ordered them at Mexican food restaurants, or my mom bought them in a large can at the supermarket.

When making the switch to real food, it is hard to envision life without your processed favorites. How many of you love jalapeno poppers? Here is a gluten and grain free recipe that you will love even better than the processed version.
There are a lot of reasons to learn how to make buttermilk. Fluffy whole wheat pancakes. Grandma’s flaky biscuits. Ranch dressing. Need I say more? This hero of cultured dairy products makes grains more digestible, salads more tempting, and white sauces more tasty. It’s a shame that it’s darn near impossible to buy. A trip…
