I usually cook a Rachel Ray’s recipe but I had to take a break. Why? Well, My friend posted her amazing soup recipe on Facebook. I asked if I could share it with you. This is the best soup I have ever had using squash and it freezes well.
If you have a garden or belong to a CSA, I am sure you have an over abundance of squash at this point! You can prepare squash for the freezer. I wrote a guest post on Mama Bzz this week about freezing vegetables. My favorite way to freeze zucchini is shredded for future zucchini bread. Cream of Zucchini is new recipe to me and I will give it a try!
Summer squash and zucchini squash are here. Both of these classic summer veggies are abundant this time of year and are quite inexpensive. Problem is…it is difficult to preserve them by freezing or canning since they tend to get soggy and lose that fresh-from-the-garden flavor once preserved. So, a friend shared with me a cream of zucchini recipe that I just love. It freezes beautifully, it uses 2 lbs of zucchini, doubles or triples easily, and it is tasty. Don’t skip the bleu cheese; it adds such a wonderful flavor to this soup. Try it even if you think you don’t like bleu cheese. To freeze, cool completely. Pour 4 cups of soup into a quart-size freezer bag. Seal and store flat in freezer. Give this recipe a try when you have plenty zucchini, freeze a batch, and you’ll be enjoying the fresh summer flavor all year long.

Thanks to Connie for this recipe.
Dry beans are a money saver. Aside from having a large yield when cooked, they have a long shelf life and are nutrient-rich. Beans are also a wonderful source of protein, fiber, and iron and they are naturally low in sodium and calories, unlike their canned counterparts which sometimes have up to 15% of the daily value of sodium. The only challenge with dry beans is the fact that you do have to plan ahead when preparing them. They need to be soaked overnight before proceeding with a recipe, or at the very least, quick soaked. If you don’t have overnight, you can “quick soak” them. Rinse and sort ½ pound of beans; place in pot and cover with 3-4 cups hot water. Bring water to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 1 hour. Drain soak water and rinse beans before proceeding with recipe.Continue reading
