We’re officially in May.

MY OTHER RECIPES


Summer begins on June 20th.

Which means we’re getting really close to bikini season.

So I’ve put down the donuts.

No wait.

I’ve just put down one of the donuts.

And instead.

I’ve picked this up.

Zucchini noodles!

With a garlic butter sauce.

DUH.

But don’t worry.

I added more garlic, and made it a teensy bit healthier with less butter and a bit of olive oil.

You can’t tell the difference.

And that freshly grated Parmesan on top is LIFE, guys.
