  1. Made as directed. What a yummy way to use zucchini.
  2. Thanks, much, for A GREAT CHOCOLATE FIX! I, too, was generous with the cinnamon (love the stuff!) & also with toasted walnuts (a nice rounded measure of 'em)! Very much enjoyed the inclusion of coconut! This recipe is now in several of my cookbooks, including the one for my Holiday Gift Ideas!

Two of my three cats. <img src=""> And my *biggest* and *BEST* cat of all: <img src=""> I am a busy mom of small children by day, and I work part-time as a doctor at night. I am trying to find the ever-elusive balance between career-track and mommy-track. Cooking and baking bring me joy, and I love to see my kids eat healthy homemade foods. I have relatives with a local organic farm, so I use their produce as much as possible. Yum! After some trial and error with rating recipes for various contests and tag games, I think I will from now on stick to the definitions provided by Zaar: 3 stars means I liked it! I might have had to make some adjustments, though. 4 stars means I LOVED it! Almost no adjusting was necessary. 5 stars means one of the most outstanding things I have ever tasted! Stands, as is, as a fabulous dish. I can't imagine giving only 1 or 2 stars -- that would mean that I either picked a recipe that I should have known wouldn't suit my taste, or that I really messed up while making the recipe. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><a href="¤t=kidfrecipeswap.jpg" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
