Italian Zucchini Fritters Pitticelle Cucuzze (Gluten-Free, Low-Carb)

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAVE TOO MANY ZUCCHINI? MAKE ZUCCHINI FRITTERS!   Italians take their food seriously so if you ever plan to deviate from a traditional recipe do it with caution. Depending on what region of Italy you are from you may call zucchini fritters a variety of names. Perhaps your Nonna, Nonno or parents have called them one of the following names below but at the end of the day, they all taste delicious and a must-try for any zucchini lover. Zucchini fritters are a staple in just about every Italian household and just about every Italian we know has a huge garden which means, lots of zucchini. The zucchini fritters take on many Italian names, Pitticelle Cucuzze or you might have heard Pah-TAL-ee, Frittelle di Zucchine, Pitticelle di Zucchine especially if your family is from Calabria. For those of you visiting the blog from the UK or other countries you may be searching for Italian Courgette Fritters and you’ve found them.   Zucchini vs. Zucchini Blossoms   If you are fortunate to have zucchini blossoms which are orange in colour and very fragile along with organic zucchini you can make authentic fritelle (fritters).

Easy Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Bars

YOU CAN MAKE ANY FRUIT LOOK AND TASTE DELICIOUS WITH CUSTARD   Some of the best rhubarb recipes start with your imagination and that’s what I did when Mrs. CBB and I created these easy Keto Strawberry rhubarb custard bars. These are going to be the bars you will want to make the next time you have a BBQ or potluck to go to or you are hosting a dinner party. If you are hosting a garden party or participating in one you can make these a couple of days in advance which is great news. No one likes to rush around the night before or the day of. Everyone who eats a sugar-free, gluten-free, low-carb, keto diet knows that having sweets once in a while is somewhat desired just like everyone else. The great part is with nuts and coconut you are able to create so many delicious low-carb recipes from cookies, loaf breads to pretzels and so on. Nuts are the perfect substitution for flour which is a gluten nightmare. With a huge patch of fresh, organic rhubarb growing in our back garden and a recent trip to the strawberry patch we had enough fruit to start baking […]

35 Minute Zoodles Bolognese (Zucchini Pasta w/Meat Sauce)

ZOODLES ARE A GREAT SUBSTITUTE FOR HIGH CARB HEAVY PASTA. TRY FOR YOURSELF, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID   Today I’m sharing with you an easy recipe that you can have on the table in about 35 minutes working at a steady pace. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! I can now announce that I am the new King Zoodles Chef. Mrs. CBB said that I’ve finally mastered the art of zucchini noodles. That or she just wants me to keep cooking so she doesn’t have to. Nah, she meant it. Good-bye pasta. Thanks for many years of tummy filling goodness but we’re moving on to something far different and it’s gluten-free. We are a pasta loving family but in order to keep the carbs low we’ve started removing as much gluten as we can as well sugar but most of all, eating too much food. This Zoodles Bolognese is so good you’ll be telling yourself that it is on the weekly menu forever. Every bite is filled with tonnes of flavours from the spices. A dish like this in a restaurant could easily cost you $20 where I was able to make this entire recipe that serves 4-6 people for that […]
