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?
