Zucchini Bites

Zucchini slice in its original form is one of those meals that i remember regularly having as a kid.  We’d eat it fresh for dinner with a green salad and then the left overs would be sliced up and served cold in a roll with mayonnaise and homegrown alfalfa sprouts.  I’m pretty sure that my…

Make Your Own Pizza From Scratch
