Welcome to The Pauley Principle!

The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!

Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.

Squash Blossoms filled with Cheese

Pick fresh blossoms in the morning while the blossom is still open. Use pumpkin or large squash blossoms for stuffing. They're equally delicious. Today I used string cheese that I cut into chunks. Sometimes, instead, I use grated cheddar mixed with chopped jalapena and it's like a jalapena popper inside!

Stuff the blossom with cheese after making sure there is no insect busy working inside.Twist the open end so that it stays shut.  Dip in a simple batter made with 1 large egg, 2 tsp. cornmeal and a dash of salt.

Saute on each side just until golden in olive oil and butter, or your favorite oil.

Stuffed squash blossoms make a great appetizer or healthy after-school treat. Serve warm. The first thing you notice is the tasty crunch and then your tongue finds the cheesy deliciousness inside the delicate blossom. It's so good! 100% pure YUM!!!
"Plant a zucchini and feed the world!" my husband used to proclaim. Not anymore. Now he realizes the potential in the beautiful blossoms as a summertime treat.
