Rebecca's journey into the food world was a little different than that of her coworkers. She didn't grow up in her grandmother's kitchen and there was no secret spaghetti sauce recipe. Her mother, who owned a home daycare center, needed to prepare large quantities of kid-friendly food as quickly as possible.

I made this recipe for a birthday party. Instead of lining the bowl with lettuce leaves, I lined the rim of the bowl with some of the zucchini slices. Everyone tried it, liked it, and asked for the recipe. I will definitely make it again.
It is way too hot to grill outside or cook long big heavy meals. This is a delicious, easy, healthy, and inexpensive dish. I love making these types of dishes during the summer because everything is so fresh this time of year. I make this as a complement side dish to marinated grilled boneless chicken breast that I cook on my George.

If you’ve ever spent hours sitting hunched over a table, hands cramped from squeezing a piping bag, with a pile of paper towels and toothpicks that are now permanently stuck together, you’ll understand what I mean when I say that royal icing is not my best friend.
