Eggless Cookie Dough

So don’t get me wrong, salmonella is very scary, but who can resist chocolate chip cookie dough? I am not advocating eating cookie dough with raw eggs, but I have done it since childhood and there have been no side effects; except weight gain.  Nowadays though, you have to be more careful.  So I have…

Its my favorite food site.  Anyway, I didn’t have any spinach but I had some zucchini and then I began to springboard from there. I paired it with seared sea scallops with a simple white…
