Today is my birthday and a National Holiday: Sneak zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch day!
I have my share of zucchini in the garden and with vacation coming, my neighbors may be the recipient of some of these squash babies.
If you gifted with a few zucchini – here are some new recipes I have tried this season.
Quinoa-Rice salad with cherries and feta adapted from the Weight Watchers July/August 2016 edition.
1. The all recipes! website is a great resource to look for recipes for the home cook. AND always read the reviews by the readers to see the pitfalls and triumphs of the recipe.
2. Here are a few cookbooks to sample:
3.The Chocolate Zucchini Cake is a winner! It is a great cake to make and store in the freezer and pull out for a potluck or picnic. Chocolate Cheese Frosting is an awesome addition to this cake. Super!
4.Zucchini can be used to substitute for pickles in relishes – made sweet or dill – and canned. I tried a recipe through the Ball Canning Cookbook summer and they were awesome as hot dog condiments.
5. Invest in a food processor with a shredder. Place the zucchini in a colander/strainer to get the water content out before cooking with it.
Get on with it now. It’s Zucchini Day!
