I have come across so many enticing recipes to try to use the giant zucchinis that I previously referenced.  I feel a personal responsibility not to let those beautiful state-fair-winning-sized veggies go to waste and so Zucchini Fest 2011 continues!  Are you excited?  I hope so!

You know that phenomenon where you write or say a word so many times that it doesn’t even sound right anymore?  Well that is what has happened to me and zucchini.  But I will press on.  Up next on the docket:  zucchini cupcakes.  These really are delish and as one of my tasters said: “It’s almost like there’s not even vegetables in these cupcakes” .  This frosting is divine and will be my go-to caramel frosting from here now on.  It is maple-y, rich and glossy.  Great characteristics for a frosting if you ask me.

P.S.  I was in Mexico for the 4th of July and my brothers were kind enough to wait to light their fireworks until I returned.  Aren’t these fun photos of the show?
