Zucchini bread is one of my favorite things to bake in the summer! Even the pickiest eater in the house (who was reluctant to try it at first since it had “zucchini” in the name) could eat an entire loaf in one sitting if I let her! Lol! This bread is not difficult to make at all and the kids love to help make this! We include cinnamon chips into our recipe instead of chocolate […]
When Dale first mentioned trying zucchini grilled cheese, I thought that he was a little crazy! It definitely did not sound super appetizing to me in the beginning. I decided I would give it a try one day when we were craving grilled cheese sandwiches, but we were out of our homemade bread. This easy lunch recipe was super fast and I was so surprised by how amazing it tasted! We ate it several more […]

Here’s a video Brooklyn and Daphney recorded showing how to make them! Note: Although this recipe can certainly be made without a stand mixer & shredding attachment, we’ve found ours to be a valuable part of our kitchen and it saves us a ton of time. […]

It never fails that at least once a season there is a zucchini hiding underneath that grows to the size of a baseball bat. I have heard so many people say that the zucchini loses their flavor when they get this big and they should be thrown out. Do not do this!! I have found one of the best ways to use these baseball bats in the kitchen (without my kids even knowing!). I make […]
