Juli of Pandemonium Noshery invited the Foodie Extravaganza gang to join her this month in celebrating this summer squash that is in abundance right now. I'm certainly excited to get some new recipes. Let's take a look at what everyone is sharing..........

As you can see, zucchini has much more to offer than just sweet bread, as good as that is. One of my husbands favorite ways to have zucchini is in this delicious Chocolate Cake. Your family and friends will never guess that it contains a vegetable.
During the season I always have several on my counter and grab them while cooking, figuring out what to do with them as I go. This Greek Inspired Breakfast Casserole is a great way to use them. They are a tasty snack when you put them into the dehydrator to make Zucchini Chips and they also make a pretty good Dip to serve with bread or crackers.
This summer squash soup is a wonderful way to start a meal, this zoodle slaw is a perfect side dish and this cream pie can be dessert for a zucchini centric meal.
Agrodolce means sweet and sour and it is the perfect sauce for these little squash coins that lend themselves to whatever flavors you desire. I simply seasoned them with salt, pepper and a little Italian herb mixture before tossing them in a sauce made from a little brown sugar and balsamic vinegar.
