The Garden Is Producing-Time for Baked Goods

So we have garden success, thank God! It has been years since we have been able to control the weeds well enough to actually produce anything worthwhile. Last years surprise of 40 gourds just didn't cut it! Cole and I picked the zucchinis and went in search of a sweet way to use them. Everything tastes better with a little chocolate so we made Chocolate chip zucchini muffins. We used the recipe here. They were a huge success considering Cole ate nearly half the batch by the end of the day. Next time we'll double it and add more zucchini and considering how much the kids loved them there will surely be a next time. Bonus is that Cole and I had a fun activity to do while Cecily was napping, trying to spend engaged one on one time with him is a big priority for me right now since Cecily is taking most of my energy.


  1. oooo graet idea! We just started getting a few things from our garden this week including zucchinis! Becka has also eaten a few strawberries from the garden too. I love that she can see where fruits and vegetables actually come from!

  2. Ooooh, I forgot all about zucchini chocolate chip goodies! Time to start baking.....
