zucchini recipes

It's the time of year when coworkers, team mates and family show up at various times with a pile of zucchini that out-weigh new born children. You hear people complain about the various incarnations of zucchini that they are currently consuming daily. So, in response to this, I thought I would share a handful of more creative zucchini recipes from one of my all-time favorite food bloggers, Deb from Smitten Kitchen.

Deb has been doing this since before most of us knew what a blog was. She is funny and honest and inspiring, one of my blogger heroes. And she had her first baby this weekend, so go to her blog for sweet baby goodness.

Without further adieu, some new ways to use the squash that is threatening to overtake your garden and kitchen...

Zucchini Latkes: These seem like the perfect fall side dish, a little heartier for the cooler days.

Zucchini Carpaccio Salad: A great way to hold on to the summer flavors just a little longer.

Ratatouille: This was the first SK recipes that I tried and I was hooked.

Lemony Goat Cheese Pizza: I love making pizza on the grill, maybe next time we will try this.

Indian-Spiced Vegetable Fritters: A more exotic way to serve your zucs.

Kefta and Zucchini Kababs: This one I really want to make this week. That yogurt sauce looks yummy!

So there you have it. Enjoy the last days of summer squash!

I tried the Zucchini Latkes last night and they were wonderful. I linked to you on my blog, as well as SmittenKitchen.com

Thanks for the ideas. I'm going to try more this week!
