Doesn't that sound marvelous? it just rolls off the tongue... vanilla zucchini. Mmm! These were really good, and I would definitely make them again, but I actually spit them out first time I tasted them! You know how sometimes things just have to sit to allow the flavors to mellow and mingle? Well that was my experience with these vanilla zucchini muffins. I'm a vanilla fan, I am always adding extra in my recipes, and these live up to their name.

In fact, the next day they were so good that everyone in the house devoured them for breakfast. I actually used some frozen zucchini that I shredded and packed away last summer. I'm going to make this excellent zucchini bread this week too to start using some of it up. Then I can take some better pictures too! ;) Then next on the list is this chocolate zucchini bread, the best I've ever had, like eating cake!

I've been on a whole muffin kick, too! I might try this and make it a little healthier and GF. Would that be okay with you?

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies and cakes. :) I love cooking too, but I like to experiment, which can occasionally mean take out! ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in the convenience food era. My parents were divorced and I was a latch key kid. There weren't a whole lot of home cooked meals in my childhood, but lots of packaged and frozen goods. I try to make dinner every night for my family, though sometimes it's take out due to sports activities, etc. I'm envious of those that have their grandmother's recipes, I don't have anything like that.
My cooking triumphs
i've created a few recipes of my own, one I even won a contest for :) I love experimenting and finding new ways to combine flavors. I feel triumphant every time I bring something to my neighbors, they always give me rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I try to prepare whatever I can early in the day, so that the hectic afternoon is less... well, hectic! I tend to be pretty frugal, so I'm always pantry diving. I also menu plan every week, it saves me from A) running to the store in the middle of the week and B) getting take out.
