  1. RJ, I have heard of people freezing shredded zucchini and baking with it in the winter, but I haven't tried it. If you have a FoodSaver, sealing it in a bag would be the way I would do it.

  2. Wow — that's a lotta zucchini! So many great ideas here; I'm printing this updated post to keep on my fridge during zucchini season. Thanks so much for mentioning my zucchini e-book.

  3. I am swooning over this list of recipes. I think I just may need to go on a zucchini diet. Goodness knows I'd always be satisfied with something delicious — yes, even for breakfast. Wonderful!

  4. Thanks Kelly! I have to admit I was kind of stunned to realize that I had over 50 zucchini recipes, and once I got started I found so many good ones!

  5. Hi Kalyn!

    You've quickly become one of my favorite food bloggers. I don't follow South Beach to a tee anymore but reading your blog helped me to remember how tasty and healthy the meal plans are. I just save your zucchini roundup on my desktop. The meals are VERY doable yet healthy. I can't wait to try them.

  6. I finally have time to grow a garden since retiring in March. Of course the zucchini and yellow squash are prolific. I have tried your recipes but find they are soupy. Do you cook the zucchini first? Additionally, I have made bread and butter pickles with my zucchini, yellow squash, onions, and pimentos…delicious. You can't tell they are not cucumbers

  7. Mickey, have fun gardening. I don't really know how to reply to that, since I have no idea what recipe you're referring to. If it's a question on a specific recipe, you can click through and ask it on that post.

  8. Wow,
    These recipes look amazing. I can't wait to try some. I've bookmarked your page. I love to cook and you've got great ideas that I can share with my readers. Thanks so much. Lisa

  9. Love your recipes. Just trying your zucchini muffins tonight.

    Here's something to try with zucchini, if you haven't. My brother told me about a dish he had in Italy with burned zucchini and tomatoes. Slice up your zucchini as you would to cook it for a side dish and put it in a frying pan with a little olive oil. Cook over medium-high heat until the zucchini chars some on the outside. (Not just a golden brown, really dark.) Add tomatoes ( I just use canned Italian Seasoned ones.) and warm through. This really does something for the zucchini, making it somehow better than ever.

  10. Its been among the best use of the sources.
