One of my dreams in life is to make it to Philadelphia. I want to eat a real Philly Cheese Steak and see where Corey Matthews of Boy Meets World grew up. Until then, I will continue to dream and make my own Philly Cheese Steak. This past weekend I wanted to try something that was a little different than the traditional cheese steak. Instead of using sliced cheese, I found a recipe with a provolone cheese sauce.

Combining some of the basic flavors that were in the Blue Cheese Celery Slaw I knew it would pair perfectly. These are great with the dip or solo. They were a huge hit—and I would recommend making them as soon as possible! One of my roommates said he would eat these every day, and I absolutely believe he would (they really are that good). Make sure you have some time set aside when you decide to make these. Coating every zucchini stick separately is time...
