Zucchini is in abundance this time of year and if you grow your own you may be standing around wondering 'what the heck do I do with all this zucchini?!'  I've got 10 sweet and satisfying zucchini recipes for you!

I have never grown my own food before.  And I guess if you want to get technical I’m not growing my own food now.  My roommate is.  But I’m enjoying the delicious bounty of home grown food and loving it!  Don’t tell my roommate but I can totally taste the difference between local non-GMO farm raised chicken and the stuff you buy at the grocery store.  I swore people were just making that stuff up but it tastes SO much better.  It’ll be our little secret.  M’kay?

Did you know zucchini done right grows like weeds?  I swear that every time I turn around she’s bringing more zucchinis in from the garden she’s got going on at her grandparent’s house.  They’re everywhere!  Like the blob.  When zucchini made the list of mystery ingredients for last week’s Chopped inspired challenge I was a little scared ’cause I don’t even like zucchini.  But when I made some zucchini brownies…ohemgee.  So good.  Now I want to make all the zucchini things!  

Wanna make all the zucchini things with your abundance, too?  Or maybe just cause you like zucchini.  Whatevs.  Here are 10 of the most deeeelicious zucchini recipes!

Ok, so there might be a decidedly chocolate feel to this post.  Totally unintentional but I am not sorry!  Maybe what the universe is really trying to tell us is Chocolate + Zucchini = <3.  At least it does in this house!  ‘Cause this might be the only way we ever eat zucchini again!

What’s your favorite way to eat zucchini?

This is perfect for me right now as we have a ton of zucchini in our garden. I made zucchini bread once a few years ago and was amazed at how good it was (I think I was expecting it to taste like steamed squash or something). Thanks for the excellent round up!

I was a little scared it would come out tasting like a steamed veggie too and was pleasantly surprised with these :) Enjoy!
