Next time you visit your local farmers market, don’t pass on the zucchini!
Normally, every summer I start a small patch of produce in my backyard. Simple things like tomatoes, cucumbers, and summer squash that are easy to grow. This year, I didn’t have the time to get things started in the spring and I’m totally regretting it.
Typically by this time of summer, I’d be up to my ears in zucchini! Maybe it’s because I’m not that I’m hankering for these zucchini recipes so bad. That’s usually how it works, isn’t it?
Well, while I head over to my local farmers market to stock up, enjoy these 5 tasty zucchini recipes from the blog – they’re my favorite!!
