Zucchini-Cinnamon Freezer Muffins

zucchini muffin

…the recipe I alluded to in the Tuesday Garden Party from a few weeks ago as a way I was using up the last of the zucchini that had been sitting in the fridge for a few weeks (zucchini keeps for a surprisingly long time in the fridge, but boy when it goes…). Now, freezing breads and muffins after they have been baked is nothing new to me and, in fact, is the way I traditionally use up zucchini. I found that we used it more if I made a bunch…

Zucchini Recipes

zucchini recipes

I’ve had some people ask recently if I had any ideas for what to do with all the zucchini coming in from gardens right now. So I’m listing some of my favorite ways to use this prolific vegetable. Updated summer 2011 to include even more recipes! Zucchini is usually a vegetable that will produce no matter what the rest of the garden is doing. Believe it or not, I’ve had years where I had trouble getting enoug…

Sausage and Corn Stuffed Zucchini

stuffed zucchini

Sausage and corn stuffed zucchini is one of those recipes I make only once or twice a year when the zucchini are in season and I’m not tired of them yet. Because we all know how fast that can happen when the zukes are arriving daily. But I love this recipe because it removes the part of the vegetable that is my least favorite- the smushy inside -and leaves only the firm outside. Well, and plus the fact that it’s g…

No Fail Zucchini Bread

zucchini bread

One way a lot of people use up their garden zucchini is by making zucchini bread. I know that my children wish I would just use the zucchini to make this tasty (and, um, sweet) bread instead of actually trying to cook with it. Over the years I have tried many different recipes like Pear Zucchini Bread, Zucchini Orange Bread, Zucchini Bread with Sour Cream, and others, only to come back to the very first recipe I made with zuc…

Zucchini and Feta Fritters

…ese to a potluck at my in-laws neighborhood, they are still requested each year. Even those who don’t like zucchini have told me they like these. Except for my kids. *Sigh* And my husband can get tired of them. But I like them… no, I really like them, so we have them a number of times during zucchini season. And then I put the recipe away for the rest of the year and my family breathes a sigh of relief. Make them and see if you can ge…

Dark Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes


Chocolate and zucchini are a match made in heaven, as far as I’m concerned! I love the way that zucchini adds moisture to baked goods (evidenced by my other recipes for Zucchini Lemon Bread, No Fail Zucchini Bread, and Zucchini Cinnamon  Freezer Muffins!) and these dark chocolate zucchini cupcakes are no exception. Of course we probably all hope that adding zucchini also adds a bit of nutritional value – but, hey…

Zucchini Lemon Bread


I’ve been wanting to share this Zucchini Lemon Bread recipe with you for awhile and since there’s still a couple of fresh zucchini from the garden that I’ve been storing in the refrigerator, today’s the day! When we want a really good regular zucchini bread, I make my favorite basic No-Fail Zucchini Bread. And at the end of the gardening season, I usually make a number of loaves to keep in the freezer….

Zucchini-Feta Fritters – Updated

Zucchini feta fritters

This is a post from my archives – it is a summer tradition at our house when the zucchini are producing like crazy, so it seems appropriate to republish it, complete with new-and-improved photos. Serving these with a squirt of lime is what elevates them from the regular zucchini fritter/pancake.  Zucchini and feta make a great combination and when lightly pan-fried, these little fritters (pancakes, really, since they a…

Zucchini, Corn, and Tomato Saute

Zucchini, corn, and tomato saute

…This was a surprise that I really liked this dish, because there are only a few ways I like cooked zucchini and the one thing they have in common is the zucchini stays mostly crisp. This is important, otherwise I’m transported back to my childhood where the vegetables on my plate were often mushy. I can’t get past it, and any recipe that calls for more than 5 minutes of cooking usually falls into the “mushy”…

White Zucchini Cake with Broiled Frosting


…21; ingredient. Mayonnaise? No. Since it was the time of year we were trying to use up garden produce, I guessed zucchini, to which she smiled and said yes. It was hard to believe – I couldn’t see it, couldn’t feel it. By this time the whole family was trying to find the zucchini in the cake. Couldn’t be done. And then she shared the secret to the secret ingredient: the zucchini is peeled and some of the juice pressed out…
