Wow, I have only recently come across your blog and LOVE everything you do!! (I'm now a daily visitor) Your "Just Rite" projects are awesome...I think I may have to do some shopping. :) Here's a recipe I've made using zuccini ~ it definitely tastes better with chocolate!

Preheat oven to 350°, grease and flour two 8 inch cake pans
Sift together:
2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C cocoa
2 2/1 t baking powder
1 1/2 t soda
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
In another bowl, cream together:
2 C sugar
3/4 C butter or shortening (at room temp.)
Beat into the creamed butter and sugar:
3 eggs
Stir in:
1/2 C warm milk
2 t vanilla
2 C zucchini, shredded (packed)
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into pans, and bake for about approx. 1 hour, or when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Frost this cake with chocolate ganache frosting, chocolate syrup, or dust w/powdered sugar.


Looks like you have been having fun with the JustRite stampers! Great projects!!! I love zucchini bread and so does my DS-he would eat the whole loaf if I let him! :)
Have a wonderful weekend! :)

I just made this yesterday--kids and I all think it is WONDERFUL!!
In fact, I think I am going to go have a piece, now. ;)
Great project--that would make Christmas projects so fun and easy!!

Whoohoo Tammy, fabulous stuff, my friend!!! I love zucchini bread so I am going to try some of these fabulous recipes - YUMMY!!!! Your projects ROCK!!!! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex


Hi Tammy, these are wonderful! I can just see so many possibilities with this stamper!
My favorite is zucchini bread, although I did make zucchini lasagne last night in the microwave, and it wasn't too bad, esp. since I didn't have to turn on the oven. Although throwing them away at this point sounds rather tempting....there are a few in my fridge that are wizened and growing old! Yuck!

I love all your cards - thanks for sharing!!! I'll try out your recipe too. We love zucchini and our favorite way is to saute it and then add stewed or chopped tomatoes with seasonings.


Love the projects made with the Just Rite stamper! It is on my list to get :D. Our favorite zuchinni recipe is fried zuchinni :D.

1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 cup of parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 eggs beaten with a touch of milk
olive oil

Mix the first three ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Beat the eggs and milk in another bowl. Slice the zuchinni into 1/4" slices. Dip each slice into the egg mixture and then coat well with the bread crumb mixture. Fry in olive oil until golden brown and tender inside. MMMMM! I have a zuchinni sitting on my counter fresh from the garden too :D!


Thanks Tammy for such inspiring projects! And, Cuttlebug folders vs zuchinni??? hmmmmm... let's see... I'd take the fresh zuchinni if I won the blog candy! hehehe. That's the one thing I miss since my dad passed away - his garden was tremendous and we always grew up with fresh vegetables. I have fond memories of helping him turn the soil and finding worms! I don't have the time or the space to have a huge garden, so I plant a few tomatoes in a pot and two pepper plants and that's the extent of my harvesting!! Enjoy your fresh veggies.


I don't "do" zuchinni but you know I love your blog, LOL!!

Tracy the set you made is sooooo cute. I saw a monogrammed set on another blog and I realize now I just HAVE to have the set!!! Thanks for more inspiration!

PS: My favorite recipe for zuchinni bread has zuchinni, carrots, walnuts and currants. It is the mostest bread I have EVER eaten and you use very little sugar (my parents are both diabetic) so it's really good for you too!

Have a great weekend,


Tammy -

Love the cards - both the recipe and the note cards!! I actually made zucchini bread for the first time last year and loved it! I do not, unfortunately, know where the recipe went!!

thanks for your constant inspiration!

Stephanie Hargis

Yay! Congrats on all your hits girl! 100K is HUGE! I can only dream of numbers like that! Anyway...your zucchini bread looks delicious! I have to honestly tell you have I have never made anything with zucchini but I do LOVE zucchini bread! Sorry I couldn't be of more help in that area!


Charmaine Ikach

These are just fabulous, Tammy! I LOVE what you did with the Just Rite stamper!


You've been on a roll lately! Your creations have been things of pure beauty. We had one of our favorite zucchini dishes last night. Grilled sun-dried tomato chicken sausages, zucchini, onions, peppers and tomatoes that had all been tossed with a bit of olive oil. Cut everything up and toss with about a 1/2 c. of fresh herbs, salt, pepper and garlic bread...YUM!! Low fat, low cal and lots of flavor.

Love Love Love Zucchini Bread -- but sometimes it's fun to take the batter and make big cookies - a little crisper that bread but with the same flavor.

Cindy Vernon

My favorite is fried zucchini. I dredg thinly cut zucchini in flour, egg and then panko bread crumbs and fry. I season with salt and pepper right when they get out of the oil. Yummy. My baby thinks they're french fries! Thanks for showing these samples, I just got some Just Rite stamps but I haven't used them yet, some of the ones aren't out yet and are on B/O but Ican't wait until they get here.


Congrats on all your blogosphere successes!

I have so many zucchini recipes that I love... Double chocolate zuc bread is my fave, my kids really like zucchini chocolate chip cookies. They actually like them better than the regular kind of choc chip cookies! Crazy thing is, my row of zucchini plants is doing poorly and I don't have enough zucchini! How is that possible?!?

Keep up your great work, Tammy.


Super cute set of projects---love the recipe cards and how you decorated the bread!!! Awesome! (and yummy!)


I love zucchini! I love it raw, dipped in ranch dressing. Also, I love it steamed with a little bit of butter and salt. And finally, my favorite is my grandma's chocolate zuchini muffins. She uses whole wheat flour and a few other things to make it healthy.


I love zuchinni slice, but don't have the recipe sorry.
Congrats on 100K!! That's amazing ;)

Kristen Dyer

Well I have to be honest and say that I have never tried zuchini. (sp?) I am sure I will at least one time in my life but no one in my family ever made is so I never had the chance to try it. eh... hehe.. anyways I love the cards you made with the JustRite. I have seen it EVERYWHERES!!!!! I will get one eventually to fit in with the crowd. lol. But, anywho congrats on making it to 100k. That is so huge! I can't imagine wait it is like to know how many "fans" you have that check in on you all the time! :)

Joanne Johnson

I love how you've used the Just Rite Stamps! I've been fighting the urge to start buying them but it's getting harder and harder...

JustRite Stampers

Tammy, Thanks for sharing these and sharing the JustRite news with everyone! The fact that you sold out is so awesome! You must have a super demonstration. Thanks,Denise


I've been resisting the Just Rite stampers, but you are certainly making it hard, girl! Love your recipe cards. We used to garden when the kids were young, and one year we had a bumper crop of zucchini. I had run out of ideas to use it all, and one day at a supper of stuffed zucchini, our son said he had a great idea of what to do with the rest of the zucchini on the vine -- "Let it rot!" My fav is raw, either in sticks for dipping or sliced in salad, but I made a delicious ratatouille with it a couple of weeks ago.


I love the Choc. Zucchini cake as well... But, then there is the zucchini, onion, tomato, garlic sauted in evoo then add baked halibut... Yummy...
