Ah!  The plenitude of zucchinis this time of year. Every morning you’re surprised when you go to garden by the 2 giant zucchinis that just magically appeared overnight.

I’ve left them on doorsteps.  I’ve had them left on my patio table.  I’ve seen them at the Book Club.  They’re at every table at the Farmer’s Market.  And my kitchen counter is buried under piles of them!

Be prepared…here come the repertoire of delicious recipes with zucchini in them!

This first in the line-up is a doozy.

It is delicious, nutritious and easy to whip up.  A favorite breakfast item for those trying to maintain healthy diets for their little ones…

Let the sweet adventure begin!
