A great use for overgrown zucchini, this zucchini apple pie (zapple pie) is a twist on the classic mock apple pie using sliced zucchini. The first time I made zapple pie, I served it for dessert when the neighbors came to visit. They didn't believe that the pie was made with zucchini and not apples. It's a great way to use up those giant club-sized zucchini. One zucchini about a foot long should be enough for one nine inch pie. Don't use young zucchini – they taste too much like veggies.
Need a new easy zucchini recipe? Make some zucchini gummy candy! This zucchini gummy candy recipe is made without jello or pectin tastes like commercial gummy treats with no artificial flavors, colors or refined sugar.

Cheesy garlic zucchini bread is a recipe I often make when summer squash are abundant, but it also works just fine with frozen shredded squash. It's a quick bread recipe, not a yeast bread, so it goes together in a flash. The texture is nice and moist, and the garlic gives it real “pop”.
