Oven Fried Zucchini

Oven Fried Zucchini | Mini Van Dreams #recipes #easyrecipes #vegetarian

There is nothing I love more than zucchini, especially garden-fresh zucchini.  Usually, I just saute it with some onions and garlic and chow down.  This time, however, I thought I wanted to come up with something similar to the fried zucchini you get in Chinese restaurants.  This is what I came up with… super delicious.  Now, I just need to come up with some sort of dipping sauce and I will be set.  The best part is… they aren’t fried, they are baked!  You can’t beat that!

Cowboy Casserole

Cowboy Casserole | Mini Van Dreams
 My recipe for Cowboy Casserole is my go-to recipe for carry ins, get togethers, holidays, and any other excuse I can come up with to make it.  It is so darn good… its good hot, cold, and even better the next day!  I know this is the world’s worst picture… but it is soooo good.  Feel free to buy generic or “off-brand” potatoes to make this… it cooks up deliciously.  If you are taking it for a carry-in, make the potatoes on the stove, stir in all the cheese and the chives, then throw it in your crock pot on low.  This is a perfect side for Thanksgiving too!

Best Darn Baked Beans

The Best Darn Baked Beans | Mini Van Dreams

I made these delicious baked beans for the 4th of July bash we have at our house every year.  Everyone said they were the “best darn baked beans,” so I decided to call them that.  They started more as a “creation” and morphed into these deliciously sweet and tangy baked beans that our guests were begging to take home.  I hope you enjoy them!
