Just a recipe I came up with while trying different ways to cook squash.

Chilled Yellow Squash Soup with Dill

I make this soup with small yellow squash from my yard and leave the skin on. They give the soup a wonderful color and a mild buttery flavor. You can also make them with zucchini, but pick small, young ones with small seeds.

Blueberry Summer Squash Bread

I started this bread because I needed to bake something to bring as a gift to someone's house and quickly found that my ingredients were limited to a few summertime fruits and veggies and not much else. As such, I improvised and changed a few things around from a zucchini bread recipe and created this healthy, hearty, summertime bread. It has a slightly different flavor than zucchini bread but the same moist consistency and sweet, summery taste and smell. Note: it is not very sweet and does taste 'healthy', so it's probably not a big hit for kids unless chocolate chips are added.

This recipe is a Southern favorite. Try it; you won't regret it! This recipe is perfect for any occasion and has more nutritional value compared to most other desserts. Adjust pan size for thicker or thinner bars (I prefer mine thinner). Cover and refrigerate leftovers. Best served chilled.

Tender squash, gooey cheese and crunchy crackers make this a memorable side dish or a hearty main course. This is a great dish that can be made with low-fat ingredients and is still just as good!

Air-Fryer Roasted Veggies

Air fryers are taking over kitchens nationwide. They're basically mini convection ovens that 'fry' foods with little to no oil, less fat, and fewer calories. A heating element and fan bathe the food in hot air to produce a crispy finished product. Use 3 cups of assorted vegetables, cut into 1-inch pieces. Serve with desired dipping sauce.

This is a tasty way to use up all the yellow squash you have pouring out of your garden every summer. I also do this same thing with zucchini.

"Very good! I do these on the grill. Just wrap veggies in foil and when they are close to done throw the wrap on the grill until browned on both sides." -- Danielle H.
