Thanks to my daughter-in-law’s sweet grandfather (who is 86 years old and keeps a GIANT garden!), I inherited this GYNORMOUS ZUCCHINI! It measured a whopping 16 inches tall, and was about 6 inches across! I happen to love fresh garden vegetables, and zucchini is one of those that I typically prefer just steamed or stir-fried, but you can see that this green giant was going to be more than the two of us could eat all in one sitting (or even two or three!)
I always feel guilty wasting any of these mouth-watering veggies, so I made a phone call to the one person I knew that had lots of experience using up garden vegetables: My mother-in-law. She has had a garden off and on for decades, and is an excellent cook, so I knew she could help me out, and sure enough, she came through! Here are two of the recipes I tried:
I have to say, the zucchini really makes the cake come out moist, and this particular one is brownie-like.
The zucchini crisp tastes a lot like apple crisp, and both are best warm and a-la-mode! (But what isn’t?!)
As a special thanks for all the veggies, I made this for my sweet daughter-in-law, who just happens to be a vegetarian!
