150 Amazing Zucchini Recipes to try out this Fall!

Zucchini Parmesan Crisps! Hmmm... This is one of those healthy cooking recipes I will be sure to save. Zucchini recipes have been on my mind quite a bit recently. I have been shredding, slicing, freezing, baking zucchini casseroles, chocolate zucchini muffins, zucchini bread, trying all sorts of ideas to subdue the season’s surplus from my mother’s garden. I never particularly liked zucchini… I ate them anyway, but they were never a part of the meal I enjoyed.

Baked chips are such a great idea. Here's the dish! I'm still saving this one for later... 

The last zucchini of the year just arrived. The sucker is nearly twice the size of the last one my mother gave me. Recently, I tried zucchini muffins, which ending up being more of a chocolate, zucchini, banana, and raisin muffin/ cake creation. I guess that would be a cupcake, now wouldn't it. Regardless of the name, they were yummy! I cannot say they were “healthy”, by any means... 

Hunting again for some yummy, healthy, quick, and easy ways to prepare and store the last zucchini, I found these four highly recommendable recipe collections. Yes, I have for you 'a collection of great collections'. Thank you, in advance, to those who compiled these huge zucchini recipe resources!

Originally, I was planning a Top 10 Zucchini Recipe Collection. Once realizing these four sites listed below contained over 150 recipes in whole, I thought to add any more would be maybe a little overkill. I couldn't narrow down these four recipe collections due to their sheer greatness.

Instead, I thought what could be better than finding more than 150 Scrumptious Zucchini Recipes all in one place!

Warning: Do not proceed on an empty stomach, explicit images of food ahead!

5 Easy #DIY Raised #Garden Bed Projects that are Attractive and Practical!

Raised garden beds are a fantastic way to utilize yard spaces, large and small. Whether, planning to add new vegetable beds, a herb garden, or flowers for you, the #hummingbirds, butterflies, and #bees, the plants (and insects) will thank you as they flourish from the many benefits of growing in raised gardens.


Raised garden designs can be as simple and inexpensive of a #DIY project, as an arrangement of straw bales, recycled wood, or basic pallet garden, to more ‘concrete’ options including the use of cinder blocks, paving stones, bricks, and rock.

In all reality, wild and crazy gardeners out there will make a raised garden bed from just about anything they can get their dirty gloves on, that will hold soil! Design ideas are endless.

In my search for raised garden ideas to incorporate into my own edible garden designs for the upcoming growing season, a handful of basic ideas have moved into my “Favorite” pile. These guys made the cut primarily because of the cost, labor intensity (or lack, there of…), sustainable attributes, and overall, attractiveness.
