I'm joining the zoodle craze! No, I'm not one of those people who thinks this is a pasta substitute (no way!) but I love zoodles on their own merits. The crunch and the texture alone convinced me! Here's a great recipe for beginning a life-long relationship with zoodles, Kung Pao Chicken Zoodles-

An Oregon Girl Taking a Bite Out of Kentucky
Introduction
I'm a 30-something food-lover, devoted to my family and fur babies. I love to be in the kitchen, I love everything about trying new flavors and foods. I graduated from college in 2005, and went straight to work for a large corporation. After 6 years of climbing the ladder, I realized that wasn't what I wanted my life to be. So here I am! In Kentucky, in the kitchen, and loving life.
