Dear blog;

I am terribly sorry, I have been enjoying my summer far too much and thinking about you far too little. Having surgery, logging embarrassing pinterest hours, and enjoying some beautiful weather have taken your place. I apologize. I made you cake. Are we friends again? Good.

Oh, zucchini. Everyone who has ever grown zucchini has a love-hate relationship with the club-like vegetable. First comes the “oh! my zucchini is growing! Yay!”, then “there are so many blossoms, where is the vegetable already?” finally, “Good freaking heavens! Why is there so MUCH!” You know how it is. And then all the food bloggers who have been trying to stay no-bake throughout the summer turn on their ovens and give you some delicious zucchini recipes to use up your bumper crop.

Choc. Zucchini Cake

And you make them. You make them all. And, guess what? You still have zucchini. Oh, well. Hopefully you have obliging neighbors!
