  1. I actually found this recipe on another website and was going to post it on zaar, but did a quick search and here it is! Now I have the nutritional info! Anyhow--this is a fantastic recipe...only a couple suggestions--up the cheese by about 1/2 cup and you'll probably need a full pound of yellow squash. Oh, and I just had this for lunch--it reheats so well!
  2. Yooper, how do you keep finding these? This was really good! I halved the recipe for the two of us. I didn't have any thyme so I used fresh dried sage. Mine wouldn't stay in the wedges, it just kind of fell apart but when it tastes this yummy, who cares!?! I will definately make this many,many more times. Thanks


What can I say about myself that hasn't already been mentioned in the police reports? Just kidding! I'm a single guy who loves to cook! Good thing, or I'd starve or go broke eating out! I love to read, horror and mysteries are my favorite. Love music, (except rap) and I'm a huge Green Bay Packer Fan!
