Culinary Conversation: Reader shares more of her favorite recipes.

NEW CASTLE — I think — no, I know  — that I want to eat at Kristine Suber’s house.

The busy wife and mother submitted eight recipes to Culinary Conversation this week. Eight. But today, there’s room for six of Kristine’s selections.

Now it’s your turn. There are so, so many wonderful cooks out there and lots of ethnic recipes to boot.

It just takes a few minutes to send in your recipes and tell us how you came upon them. Is it a family tradition? Did you find it on a Website? And most importantly, what did those who tasted think of it?

Get your name in The News’ spotlight when you share.

Kristine’s is quite the selection.

She wrote that it just wouldn’t be summer without the recipe for zucchini fritters that has been passed on from generation to generation.

“My grandfather, Bruno Romeo, had the most phenomenal and bountiful garden complete with pole beans, lettuce, zucchini and much more. My grandfather always made zucchini fritters, using the flowers of the zucchini. When you walked into his kitchen and smelled the aroma of fresh sweet basil, you just knew he was making the fritters.”

Kristine added that it has become more difficult to find the flowers, especially if you aren’t growing your own vegetables.

She tweaked the recipe to utilize shredded zucchini, “and it tastes great.”

There are also recipes for spinach stuffed portobello mushrooms, cheesesteak and pastrami stuffed peppers and roasted vegetables with sausage. The latter is one to utilize when you harvest vegetables from the garden, she said.

“My husband enjoys it, and it keeps very well when he takes some to work for his lunch.”

Tuna wraps and creamy scalloped potatoes that don’t have an ounce of cheese in them are another hit with Kristine’s family.

“This is a huge family favorite and there are never any leftovers. This is one of those recipes to utilize when you’ve got potatoes on hand, and if you are generous enough to bring it to a family gathering, you will surely have several requests for the recipe, as have I.”

So jump on the Culinary Conversation bandwagon like Kristine, and share, share, share.
