Not your usual Zucchini Recipe

What does one do with all of those Zucchini's that come from the garden?   To often I get stuck in a rut making the same old recipes because they are tried and true and family favorites.   Yes, I have made zucchini bread a lot of times.  The one with cinnamon and chocolate chips is our favorite.  Coming in second is Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread.   Then of course there are savory dishes of Zucchini Stew and Stuffed Zucchini.   Not to mention sautéed and pickled.    

This year I researched the recipe's for Lemon Zucchini Bread. I even had a few sent to me.   The combination of the two made perfect sense to me.   I have always liked the flavor of lemon and this recipe does not disappoint.  The lemon flavor is not over bearing and the cake isn't overly sweet, making for a nice snack with a glass of milk or cup of tea.   

This recipe is very versatile.  I made cupcakes, but you could easily make it in a loaf pan or a cake pan.  It tastes great plain or frosted.   You could even use a glaze if you like.

Its all Gravy

Its all gravy,  chocolate gravy!







Tired of the same old leftovers?  Well freshen them up by changing them into something different and new and delicious.

Sunday we had sausage gravy over biscuits which is one of our favorite breakfast items.    However, when I made biscuits I made a few extra for strawberry shortcake, which my husband had for an after dinner, but before bedtime snack.    But this morning, I thought why not try making Chocolate Gravy for one of those extra leftover biscuits.

Yet another Chocolate recipe that doesn't disappoint.   Imagine surprising someone with this for breakfast.   It would make their day.   To bad I had to eat it alone as everyone else is at work or moved away (sometimes it is very difficult to be home alone).

There will be no recipe for biscuits today.   I don't always bake from scratch and one of my favorite cheats is Bisquick Mix.   I use it to make, pancakes, waffles and baking powder biscuits.    You can use your favorite recipe to make the biscuits.    The possibilities are endless.

The recipe for Chocolate Gravy is below.   Click on the image, it will open in a new window.  Right click on the image and a drop down will appear.  Scroll down to print image.
