Zucchini, blueberries...

The garden was loaded with zucchini when we returned from vacation. I gave some away and have pulled out all my zucchini recipes to try and use some up. For tea today I had a zucchini cranberry muffin which is one of my favorites.
The blue willow salt & pepper shakers were a gift from my sister ~ I just love them!

Zucchini Cranberry Muffins

1 c. canola oil 1 c. whole wheat flour
4 eggs 1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 c. sugar ½ tsp sea salt
2 c. grated zucchini 1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 c. craisins ¾ tsp baking powder
2 ½ c. unbleached flour

Combine oil, eggs, and sugar. Add zucchini and craisins. Combine dry ingredients, then add to wet ingredients; stir just to mix. Fill muffin cups and bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes (depending upon the size of your muffins).

*Sorry about the way this came out...I can't seem to get it to line up properly!

There were also blueberries ready, so last night my daughter helped me pick them and today I baked a pie for our dessert.

Tomorrow, blueberry pancakes and maybe stuffed zucchini for dinner...


  1. Debbie, I was so happy to see your post on zucchinis! I did a post several weeks ago about the same thing. The zucchini were producing faster than than ways I could think of to prepare them. Your muffin recipe sounds so yummy, a "definite keeper!" I will be trying it tomorrow. BTW, I just love how you do all of the presentations in your pictures. Everything always looks just wonderful. One day you will have to show us how you set your dinner table!

  2. Yum! I was just complaining about the cost of blueberries yesterday and wondering about growing my own...wondering how many people do that, so I'm especially glad to read your post on that.

    I did yellow crookneck squash this year but next year I'm definitely going to add zucchini. I had no idea you could do so many things (like desserts!) with zucchini.

    I agree with Susan...I always love your pictures.

  3. The muffins and pie look absolutely YUMMY!

    I love your Blue Willow salt and pepper shakers.

  4. Yummy! the muffins looks so delicious! :)
