What I do while I figure out what to do next . . .

Well this is just crazy!!!

I don’t really have a green thumb, but apparently once you put a whole lot of effort into building raised beds and hauling really, really awesome dirt from really far away in your yard (trip, after trip, after trip) you can be a rather negligent gardener and then still reap the benefits for a good portion of the summer.  I do try to plant things my family likes, green beans, corn, broccoli, basil etc.  I also plant things I like and will eat daily or will can like pickles and tomatoes.  But then I get suckered into planting things like squash and zucchini (which I like drizzled with olive oil and grilled) which my family just tolerates and unfortunately, those plants tend to be the things that I am shockingly most successful at growing (see above picture for proof).  Hence my quest for the ultimate zucchini bread recipe.  Stay tuned for that recipe, plus bread and butter pickles, a pesto straight from the Ligurian coast (via my backyard) and an awesome go-to dip that will take you from summer barbeques to football tailgates and beyond! 🙂

  1. Zucchinis grow so easily, and so few children like them! Why do you think so many recipes exist for hiding them in cakes and breads? My friend makes a great zucchini relish recipe which uses quite a few of them.

      I love grilled zucchini brushed with just olive oil and sea salt, but you are right – not a huge hit with any other member of my family. I think it is a texture thing. Too mushy for most kids, but all that moisture works so well in sweet breads and cakes. What is a zucchini relish used on/with?
