I missed Zucchini Day. It just passed me right by. Several of my friends have asked me for more zucchini recipes. So, here I am. I’ve put together an amazing collection of recipes that will be perfect for using your bounteous harvest.
It seems like cheesecake bars are like the cool kid on the block these days. Everyone is making them. You name it, you can make it into a cheesecake bar.
When I told Robb I intended to make Strawberry Pudding, he wondered aloud whether it even existed. It will when I make it, I replied. He should just trust me, because it’s one of the tastiest and creamiest desserts I’ve had in a long time!
You should know that it doesn’t bother me ONE BIT to have cobbler instead of cake. In fact, I bought the biggest Costco-sized box of blackberries I could find, and made this cobbler twice. Once for me, and once for Carla.
Not too long ago, we went to this fancy donut place in town, and Robb got a toasted coconut donut, which is one of the best things in the entire world. I wanted to capture that same flavor in this milkshake. I knew I hit a home run when I heard Robb shout from the other room, “Are you kidding me?!”
The book says it’s called a visiting cake because you can see your neighbors coming up the road, and throw this cake together before they get to the front door. It’s just about right, too. This thing was easy like Sunday morning.
When I informed Robb of an upcoming dinner get-together, and asked what I should make for dessert, cake and dip was his idea. Changing the chocolate dip to caramel dip was his idea, too. Changing the white cake to brown sugar cake was my idea, though. I’m taking full credit.
Since the neighbor and long time friend of the Hippie Chick was having a birthday, we wanted to celebrate with something, well… fun. And, obviously it’s more fun if it has the word “fun” in it. Or if it has Oreos. And so I used both.
Then I remembered the time I made Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies and decided I needed that flavor combination in my life again. So it really could not be a lime poke cake. It HAD to be a Coconut Lime Poke Cake. It was the only choice.
I learned a lesson from this cheesecake. If I keep a few items on hand, I can always have a quick and easy dessert, no matter how unprepared I feel. Having just a little foresight can save you a ton of worry and stress.
