Reader requests

  • Jane is wondering: “I just got my Hormel Freebie at Kroger but they don’t carry the Celeste pizza anymore. Anyone ever see them at Jewel?”
  • Linda responds: “I just got a Celeste pizza at Jewel in Glen Ellyn on Roosevelt.  They had cheese and sausage flavors.I still get strange looks from the Jewel cashiers who say I don’t need to use my preferred card.  I tried to explain to my cashier today about my magical things that happen online when they scan it.  She didn’t get it, but was fine with scanning my card.  I usually just say “I get magical things online”, and they scan it with no problems.  ;)” I am so thankful my store has a self-checkout! And I also found the pizza at Jewel, but not at Meijer.
  • Valentina S. also found it: “Yes, got mine at Jewel at 7329 S Cass Ave, Darien, IL 60561. They have original and sausage varieties, $1.00 each.”

Recipes, etc.

  • Angie shares: “Baked Parmesan Zucchini has become a favorite here this summer. 4 Zucchini, quartered length wise, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 2 tblsp olive oil. Preheat oven to 350 coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Mix cheese and herbs in a bowl/bag, brush zucchini with olive oil. Coat zucchini with cheese mixture and place on cookie sheet. Bake until tender about 15 mins or until crisp and gold. I usually broil mine for the last 5 mins. Serve immediately.”
  • One from Fran: “This recipe is from I made it this past weekend (along with stuffed zucchini and grilled zucchini slices), and these are very good. The only thing I did different was after shredding the zucchini, I sprinkled it with salt and let it sit and drain for about 30 mins. This recipe looks to be very forgiving in that other veggies could be added based on whatever happens to be ripe in the garden at any given time Zucchini Patties
  • For your zucchini or any other use, Outlander says: “I saw somewhere that you should never buy a mandoline with a blade that’s straight across, and that the V blade is not that great either. They recommend angled blade. This is the one I have, just the older model (black and grey). It’s great.”
  • Heather posts on Facebook: “You can also shed and freeze for baking later. Just freeze in portions for your favorite muffin/bread. There will be a lot of liquid when it thaws. Just dump it all in. Haven’t had any luck freezing and cooking. Too rubbery. But baking works.


  • Valentina S. reports on Purell: “Thank you, Rachel. I got mine at Willowbrook Target, 12 oz priced $2.49 (50% more free, Refreshing Aloe).”
