Shaved Summer Squash Salad

I love to take advantage of summer squash while it is in abundance in our baskets, at farmer’s markets or from friends who are eager to get rid of their bumper crop.  Wherever you are getting your summer squash fix, they are perfect for blending with other ingredients or in […]

Light and Luscious Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Thanks to Bountiful Baskets I can not only make my cake I can eat it too. I used my homemade applesauce and fresh zucchini from one of my baskets to make a moist and light cake. I did a semi sweet chip frosting to keep it simple. Every one deserves […]
