Since I’ve discovered these amazing eggs, I’ve started imagining all the great eggnog recipes I could make, recipes that will remind me of the eggnog of my childhood.
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.

The Lizard finally settled on Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for his birthday, which is just fine with me. My family’s love of chocolate and peanut butter is practically legend.
