Zucchini Chip Recipe

Coming up on Ludlow's famous Zucchini Festival this Saturday I see zucchinis everywhere around me but mostly spilling out of our garden!  It seems that every night Jaycob & I are out picking more zucchinis & summer squash so I've gone in search of zucchini and summer squash recipes.  I found this one this morning on for zucchini chips:

2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 egg whites


1.Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).

2.In one small bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Place the egg whites in a separate bowl. Dip zucchini slices into the egg whites, then coat the breadcrumb mixture. Place on a greased baking sheet.

3.Bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn over and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until browned and crispy.

Looking forward to trying it out!

The ladies of leisure

The ladies of leisure at our house.  Thirteen chickens altogether, 4 roosters and 9 hens.  Soon to be laying eggs (we hope) and running free range around our yard (we have very patient neighbors).  Lots of great entertainment!

Confessions of a bad blogger......

Ok, sigh, I admit it, I'm a terrible blogger. We get so caught up in our daily activities that when I sit down to blog and share what's been happening my husband finds me slumped over my keyboard fast asleep.

So what do we do daily that poops me out so you might ask? We've been busy adding a flock of chickens to our yard, a 45 x 20 foot veggie garden and a starting (40+ plants) strawberry patch. That would be after chasing down 2 kids, Jaycob's weekly softball schedule and oh, well, work and working to expand our business.

Long Trail Ale Soap

Stop by and check out our newest soap made with LONG TRAIL ALE! Using ale from one of Vermont's favorite breweries, this soap is a toast to a dear old friend and Summit Soapworks' neighbor, Craig Goodman, in honor of his 40th birthday! We've been friends a long time and it's been a long, fun trail! Cheers to those friends that turn into family!
Ale lends a super creamy lather. Scented with sandalwood and musk.

February Monthly Special

Happy Ground Hog day!!! It's said that Punxsutawney Phil will determine how much is left of winter today......those of us who live in the Northeast know that winter will continue on for what seems like forever, at least another 2 months.

Our February monthly special offers a bath treat to yourself in these cold winter months. We've changed the recipe of our Fizzy Bath Bombs to even better soothe dry, itchy skin with baking soda, epsom salts, shea butter and sweet almond oil. 50% off - $1.75 each.

Playin' in the Snow & February's Monthly Special

January brought us a general slow down of life after the busy months of October through December, foliage and then the holiday season at Summit Soapworks. We close the store on Tuesdays & Wednesdays and head out for "family day", like snowshoeing, bowling, and soon maybe some skiing and skating.

January also brought a time of revamping and updating. We've worked hard on our website to update it and add lots of new pictures and extra items that I've sold at the store but hadn't posted yet to the website. A huge "THANK YOU" and shout out to my husband, Jaycob Palmer, for all of the product shots he took.
