Zucchini Brownies
Someone gave me a monster zucchini and I was surfing for recipes to use it up when I stumbled upon this one. SO GOOD. Don't be fooled into adding an egg! The batter was REALLY dry and crumbly before adding the zucchini, almost like graham cracker crust, but it moistened up once I folded in the shredded zucchini. It was still really thick, but they baked up moist and fudgy and awesome. I spread the frosting on while they were still warm so it would melt and cool into a nice crust. My 6 year old WATCHED me put zucchini in these and she still gobbled it down. She said it changed her life, but then she's a little dramatic. Recipe is great as written! NO EGGS

Easy Tomato Sauce
Someone gave me fresh tomatoes and I needed a way to prepare them (I won't eat them plain), and this recipe was great! As other reviewers stated it's a good base that can be dressed up any number of ways. I personally added minced garlic, basil, oregano, peppers, a little sugar and salt, and 1 cup of chicken broth, then let it simmer and reduce and thicken for a few hours. It was great with spaghetti and meatballs!!

Wacky Cake VIII
I was low on ingredients and wanted a good dessert so I thought I'd give this a try. I didn't have cider vinegar, so I used regular white vinegar and per other reviewers I made it with coffee instead of plain of water. I've also made it per the recipe, and either way it was great. I was so surprised. I baked it in an 8 inch round pan and then iced it with the creamy chocolate frosting from this site. It made for a really rich, decadent, and most importantly EASY dessert. This is now my family's favorite cake!
