The Ingredient: Zucchini

I had a learning experience when I chose this as the next ingredient.  A friend emailed me asking if I knew any recipes that used squash.  I said, I was clueless, but would like to feature squash as the next ingredient to throw in the crock.

Tiffany needed to know what type of squash we wanted to use so I Googled it,  and discovered the squash family is a lot bigger than I thought! I had no idea cucumbers and zucchini were considered a squash.

I have cooked zucchini so many differnet ways:  grilled, sauteed and baked.  I cannot wait to see how it cooks in the crock!
