For the past few months I have been trying to organize my recipes. I have stacks upon stacks of books, printed off recipes, and binders of typed up or clipped recipes that need to be consolidated, broken up into categories, and just put in some sort of order so I can find what I’m looking for without having to go through everything. It never fails, no matter what recipe I am looking for, a new one, a tried and true one, or one that I’m still trying to perfect, it will be the very last recipe in the very last pile I look.

Zucchini is excellent in breads, muffins, cakes, scones, and even cookies. There are so many recipes out there that I have never understood how anyone can complain about having too much zucchini when they plant it in their garden.
