{RECIPE} Veggie Fritters

This is the time of year when I love cooking. The garden has taken a back seat this year because of the coffee shop, but we’re still getting a handful of fresh produce. My favorite thing to do with squash (and even carrots and broccoli) is to make them into veggie fritters. Shred or chop […]
