Friday Foodday

Happy Friday lovebugs! 
Here are my favorite recipes this week.

The Boca Shake
c/o Stir and Strain
1 ounce Licor 43
4-6 ounces Orange Crush soda pop
1 ounce heavy cream
In a highball glass filled with ice. Build the drink by pouring in the Licor 43. Add soda and cream. Stir to combine. 


  • 2 cups zucchini, grated and squeezed
  • 1/4 cup of feta, crumbled
  • 1 splash ouzo (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 handful herbs (such as mint, dill and parsley), chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ~1/2 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
  • breadcrumbs (I use whole wheat)
  • oil for frying

  • Directions

  • Mix the zucchini, feta, ouzo, garlic, green onion, herbs and egg and season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix in enough flour and breadcrumbs that you can work with the mixture to form balls.
  • Form the mixture into balls and dust in flour.
  • Fry in oil until golden brown and set aside to cool.

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup + 1/3 cup peanut butter
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 cup quick cooking oats
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp baking powder
    1/3 cup jelly
    Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
    Begin by creaming the butters and sugars for the cookies. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
    In a small bowl mix together your flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix into the creamed butter and sugars.
    Mix in the oats and stir until combined.
    Drop teaspoonfuls (or use a small cookie scoop) of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Make a criss cross with a fork to flatten the cookies.
    Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool.
    When cookies are completely cooled, flip half of them over. Spread each cookie with peanut butter and jelly. Top with the remaining cookies.
