More zucchini recipes! Because we are getting to the part of summer (where the end is in sight…sad) where zucchini is plentiful and you can put zucchini in all the things.
You just can’t go wrong with a recipe from Ambitious Kitchen. These are so soft and pillowy, and you can be sure they are full of healthy ingredients! Highly recommend :)
