  1. Oh man, this looks good! I wish I had it 2 months ago when I had a ton of zucchini in the garden!

  2. I have some at my house right now if you want to come and try it out! Maybe I'll bring some by with your book:)

  3. Holy Zucchini Corie, this is ridiculous. So moist. So chocolaty. I love how the frosting gives it that slight crustiness. And the kids have no idea that they're eating zucchini!
