Funny thing, my daughter started making some Zuc bread right before I saw this post. Pretty much same recipe. Looking forward to having some in an hour or so.

Ruth, everything (one) tastes better with mustard! That zucchini pie sounds divine. Sure wish I was your neighbor! I bet that pie would freeze well for the winter months. Yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipes.

Chele,
I thought about freezing a few but I really did not know how the dough would do. Guess I could try it and see how it fares...

I am not a mustard fan but trust me, it makes the z. pie! and doug likes it too!! :lol: :lol:

Oh Ruth I just love Zucchini! Personally I like it seamed with a little butter, but I tell you what, zucchini bread could be mistaken for banana bread, if it wasn't for those green flecks (my dh doesn't like it... :( )

Peel the zucchini Elizabeth. The rest you liquify in the blender. Trust me, there is no green in it. I have 3 boys and if they saw green, they'd run :wink:

LOL! :lol: I was seriously thinking about maybe pealing it as I was typing, don't know why it never dawned on me before! :D I wonder how much nutrition it looses doing that? Surely better to have SOME in there, than none. :D

Here are two zucchini recipes from the Summer 2008 Kraft Food and Family magazine. They are really good!!!

I am growing zucchini and crook neck squash in my garden, along with cucumbers, green beans and bell peppers. Second crop of corn is growing too.

The Kraft magazine is free, has coupons, and is really full of good ideas!
