OUT. OF. CONTROL.  That is the only thing I have to say about the zucchini in my garden.  Last year I begged and pleaded for my Dad to build me garden boxes for my really small yard! I had never gardened before so it is all trial and error and talking to some friends that have done this before.  This year, I decided to try zucchini.  With baby food making in full swing I figured we could definitely get some use out of it.  Well here is where we get to the out of control part!  I swear I barely blinked and the stuff is growing like crazy!  And they’re huge!  I can’t keep up with them.  So I went on a zucchini recipe search. Pinterest of course turned up tons of delicious looking recipes.  I decided to start with this Lemon Zucchini Bread.

It is a delicious twist on a classic favorite.  Dense and moist like you expect zucchini bread to be with a burst of citrus flavor!  I was very pleased with the result and I have a feeling this won’t be the last of the zucchini recipes from me! What are your favorite zucchini recipes?
