As a child, my Gram used to make delicious treats for me using zucchinis from her own garden: zucchini bread, zucchini pancakes, pretty much anything she had a fancy to make. I used to love to pick the zucchinis for her and then sit in one of the tall chairs at the kitchen bar while she baked just for me. We ate our fill and then wandered up to her craft room to do china painting, knitting, doll-making, or whatever craft Gram was working on at the time.
This is why I love The Comfort of Cooking blogger Georgia’s recipe for baked zucchini fries: as soon as I read her post, I recalled sunny California days full of zucchini and crafts with Gram. Her talk about fresh produce in California also made me long for a trip to the Hollywood farmer’s market, where the watermelon tasted better than any watermelon I’d ever had before. “The Comfort of Cooking” is certainly the perfect name for Georgia’s blog, because her writing and her recipes bring up memories of home and wonderful, home-cooked food.
Georgia’s fries sound like the perfect new recipe to try with zucchini, and now I’m actually excited to eat my vegetables!
