Ninni Zucchini Recipe

I was never a fan zucchini, but Ninni Zucchini is excellent! You ask what is ninni zucchini? It is a great easy recipe to add pizzaz to your zucchini! To see the video with step by step instructions just click on the link below. Here’s the basics:

Boiling  4 to 6 med size zucchini for about 5 minutes, just making them a little soft. Then cut them in half and clean (hull) out the seeds. In a bowl mix 1 cup of Dukes Mayonnaise , 1 cup of feta cheese, 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of garlic salt, and a tablespoon of basil. Take this well mixed filling and put it into the hull of the zucchini. then add extra parmesan cheese to the top of each and sprinkle more basil on too. As for me, I also add a little more pepper here too.  Then put them in the oven on 350′ for about 20 minutes. In the last 3 or 4 minutes you can turn the oven on broil, but watch very carefully… this trick makes the parmesan cheese on the top brown nicely. Your friends will love your ninni zucchini, and you will love me for sharing it with you! It’s one of my favorites, and remember I never liked zucchini until I had it cooked this way. Stephen

“MY” Tomato Pie Recipe

This  all started as a joke, doing a video on making my tomato pie…and we did it! I  personally like the part of the video where I reach in the oven ” bare handed” and grab the hot pie crust. Hehe! Hence the reason I am a contractor, not a cook!  Here’s the recipe, and you gotta check out the video!

Two frozen pie crusts, 4 tomatos, one cup of Dukes mayo, one half cup of feta cheese, tablespoon of  Basil, teaspoon of garlic salt, several bags of shreadded cheese (mild and sharp cheddar), and one bag of mozzarella cheese. This is all the ingredients you will need, now click on the link below to watch the video on how to put it all together..

A cup, cup and a cup…Peach Cobbler

Ok , now that I have your attention…. It’s the southern slang for the best peach cobbler recipe! I first must give credit where credit is due. On one of many trips to the wonderful seaside town of Southport NC, I attended a 4th of July cook out with my friends. I met a wonderful lady by the name of Lane Cook who brought this fantastic peach cobbler to the backyard bash! She was kind enough to share this simple recipe with me. The rest is history, as I have been making it ever since. As I said, it’s simple and takes no time to make! Here’s the cup, cup, and a cup peach cobbler!

  • a cup of sugar
  • a cup of flour (self-rising)
  • a cup of milk

     That’s all… so easy you don’t even have to write it down… well we still need the fruit, butter,and directions…

Mix your cups of sugar /flour/milk together … lumps are good. Then put a stick of  butter in a casserole/baking pan (9×14) melt the butter in the oven on 350′. On the stove top put 6 cups of fresh peaches ( you can use frozen peaches, just the one’s with no sugar added) Then add one  cup of sugar to the peaches, only need to cook til sugar has thoroughly melted (syrupy) Take the dish out of the oven with the melted butter, pour the batter into the dish, and then pour the peaches right in the center of the mix… Do Not Stir. Put in the oven for one hour at 350’… watch it toward the end as it sometimes cooks faster…Enjoy!
