Garden Squares

Garden Squares / {i love} my disorganized life #BrunchWeek

My mom loves cookbooks and magazines. She’s been collecting them for as long as I can remember. Any time we were at the store she would always go to the book/magazine section. She could spend hours looking at them, and she usually ended up buying at least one. She had so many magazines that sometimes she would forget that she had a particular issue and buy it again. To this day she has several bookshelves that are filled with cookbooks. And when I say filled, I mean filled. She started clipping recipes out of them, too. And actually still has most of them.
This is one of those recipes. My sisters and I made it a couple of times with her over the years. In fact, I still have the copy that she made for me. Garden Squares are rich and creamy, and the vegetables add a delightful crunch. They are perfect for snacking on while waiting for the meal to be ready or as part of a brunch and they are quick and easy to make, which is always a plus.
