What’s Cookin’…Best Blogger Zucchini Recipes


Bloggers around the web are up to the challenge of cooking up summer’s most prolific vegetable…zucchini. Here is a collection of inspired and inspiring recipes.

If there was IOC-sanctioned steroid testing at the local farmer’s stand, the zucchini would most certainly be disqualified and stripped of their medals. This is the time of year when zucchini threaten to overtake every vegetable patch, in both number and size. A few days ago, I saw a zucchini that was easily as big as my calf. That lends a whole new meaning to zucchini boats…one big enough to feed a family of twelve.

It may sound as though I’m complaining, but I promise that nothing could be farther from the truth. I truly love squash in every form (my childhood self – and my parents – are gasping in shock).

So, what do we do with all of this zucchini?

Food bloggers everywhere are rising to the challenge and posting their best zucchini recipes, and I thought it was high time to share some of those inspired recipes with you. And yes, I included my favorites from Cookin’ Canuck.

Let’s dive in…

Ah this is great and such a wonderful post for summer zucchinis! I wish you knew about my blog – a site dedicated to spiralizing – especially zucchinis!

I happen to love zucchini; maybe it is the versatility…look at that list; from salads to desserts!

I hope you won’t mind a link. This dish is from one of the oldest cookbooks I own called ‘The Artist in the Kitchen.’ It’s a plain dish yet it has two claims to fame. First…my friends husband stated that he did not like zucchini and yet he must have had 4 servings of this last week at dinner and 2nd? It’s simple, uncluttered…so old school…and just so dang good!
