  1. Day, so glad you liked it!

  2. Kalyn, I made the marinated zucchini salad and it was awesome! I added some lemon zest for extra zing! Thanks for all the great ideas!

  3. PJ, just picked a bunch more zucchini yesterday, so I'm going to be making something with zucchini myself today (probably "creamed" zucchini for my dad!)

  4. i have lots of zucchinis from farmer's market sitting in my fridge now, so i am glad to have seen this post. I think the breakfast casserole is whats on my mind next.

  5. Julia, thanks for sharing.

  6. Wow thanks for all the zucchini recipes. This is great. We have been getting an abundance of them in our CSA, and so are always looking for new ways to use them. Here's a recipe we put up that you might like as well:

  7. Thanks Kevin! I'm giving it away (literally) at my house!

  8. Great collection of zucchini recipes! The farmers are practically giving it away at the markets thee days.

  9. Karina, thanks!

  10. So many fabulous zucchini recipes- so little time. I want to try every one.

  11. Mama Peck, how I wish I could give you some!

  12. These ALL look wonderful! Makes me homesick for my garden in Utah. Unfortunately, we haven't learned the trick of growing zucchini in Az and it kills me to have to BUY it! I would love to have someone leave some on my porch… come on over! 🙂

  13. Shirley, thanks for helping me find it. (Unfortunately I have a conflict for BlogHer food so I won't be there, sigh.)

  14. Hey Kalyn, here's the link to Ali's original recipe: http://www.nourishingmeals.com/2009/08/zucchini-baketastes-like-cheese.html Not sure why it wouldn't show up in the search (I looked, too). I found it on her sidebar links. 🙂 Glad you subscribed! You'll love her recipes. She'll be at BlogHer Food again this year, so I'll be sure to introduce you. 😉

    Shirley

  15. Dara, it must have been great zucchini weather lately in Utah, because the plants are going wild here too.

    Best Cook, thanks! (I do work hard on the photos, although I still have a lot to learn.)

    Shirley, love the sound of that recipe, but I couldn't seem to find it when I searched on that blog. (Did subscribe to her blog though, thanks for introducing me to it!)

    Amanda, thanks!

  16. Wow fabulous round up Kalyn, thanks!

  17. Now, that's some zucchini love, Kalyn! That zucchini bread with the blueberries popped out at me. 😉 All look great though. I'm making a zucchini bake this evening for our support group meeting: zucchini, sweet onion, almond flour, olive oil, and seasonings. It's a recipe from Ali at Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen. Everyone loves it. I even added some chicken, cheese, and tomato sauce, and turned it into a main dish as Cheesy Chicken Zucchini Bake. One needs never be short on ideas with your listing. I especially love your numerous salad ones–thank you!

    Shirley

  18. Love all your recipes and the pictures look great!!

  19. Perfect timing for this post. Our plant is producing huge zucchini right now and we're doing everything we can to keep up with it. That zucchini bake is particularly enticing.

  20. Tanna, that would be a fun idea! Glad you liked the post.
