Here’s what I made from the August Paint Bucket

the flavor/theme of the month was Keeping Cool

Zucchini & Pimiento Cheese Strata from the Painted Apron archives

is one of my favorite recipes

it’s sort of like pizza meets quiche

Vegetable Sushi and

Stuffed Napa Cabbage Leaves with Peanut Sauce

from Dorothy’s Vintage Kitchen were on the bucket list last month

and they reminded me of another favorite from the archives,

Spring Roll Wraps with Sweet Chili Peanut Paste

I simplified Healthy Baked Cheesy Zucchini Bites

from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe

Instead of grating zucchini,

I cut it into thin slices

and baked it topped with seasonings and Parmesan

You can serve these as an appetizer or a side dish

Golden Zucchini Chips with Garlic and Parmesan

BLT Tortellini Salad with Pinot Grigio Dressing

from the Painted Apron archives is a great summer side or meal

I still want to make Browned Garlic Butter Creamed Corn Cheese Ravioli

from Half Baked Harvest

but since I had asparagus ravioli in my freezer

it inspired me to make a veggie filled ravioli bake

This is so good, I will be making it again soon!

Rainbow Ravioli Bake

Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Sandwiches were not on my bucket list,

but they’re perfect for busy back to school nights

Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Bars from the Gunny Sack inspired

Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cups Cookie Bars

No Churn Key Lime Pie Ice Cream from Southern Living

was the inspiration for this

5 minute Key Lime Ice Cream Pie

It was a delicious month!

  2. Happy Thursday, Jenna. I am excited about football season…Roll Tide! Finger foods are always a treat and I look forward to see what you will be making. Apple nachos sound interesting.

    I still plan on making the peanut butter cup cookies bars. Wish I had one now!

    Jenna, this is an extravaganza of delicious snacks but I hope you have some energy left to watch the game after whipping all those tasty dishes.
