I love this time of year when the Farm stands are brimming with wonderful fresh vegetables.  One of my favorites to grab is zucchini.  It’s cheap, it’s good and there are so many ways to prepare it.  If you are like a lot of people you may have a “go to” recipe for it and that’s about it.  This post has my favorite zucchini recipes all in one place, so you can get a little crazy and try something new!
