A Solution to the Zucchini Problem

Plant just one zucchini plant and you are in for a bumper crop. Ignore them for a few days and you have a 10 pound monster the next time you look!

Here is my family's favourite way to use up zucchini:

Cream Cheese Zucchini Cake

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 8 ounces cream cheese

Mix these 4 ingredients together well.



Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing

This is my favourite salad dressing recipe:


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp celery seeds
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 cup oil

Put egg, mustard, salt, celery seeds, honey, garlic, vinegar and 1/2 cup of oil in a blender.

Blend until smooth, then gradually add the remaining oil.

I use a hand blender to do this and it works just as well.
