What To Do With All That Zucchini

Another friend is helping me out here while we are still in full babysitting mode. Talley and I went to college together and then both worked as home economists for the same Agricultural Extension Service.

This time of year zucchini is plentiful. If you don't have a garden, it's often easy to find someone who is trying to give their extra zucchini away.

Thanks to Talley for sharing these recipes. She even included a gluten-free recipe!
