Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Zucchini cake is a delicious way to use up excess zucchini from the garden. This moist cake has hints of cinnamon and nutmeg making it flavorful in every bite. 

The shredded zucchini melts right into the cake and you don't even know it's there. Chopped walnuts bring a bit of bite to the cake and it's topped with my favorite cream cheese frosting

It's that time of year. Zucchini season. Each year we plant a zucchini plant or two. And each year the zucchini are plentiful. Usually after about a month of produce, the squash bugs come and kill off the plant. 

At that point, we're generally ok with it because we've had our fill of zucchini. However, this year there's been no sign of the bugs. So I'll be sharing my favorite zucchini recipes including zucchini muffins and zucchini bread

Fresh cherries are cooked on the stovetop with sugar and cornstarch. Once the filling has become nice and thick, it is poured into a pan and sprinkled with a delicious crumble topping and baked to crispy perfection.

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Have you ever made homemade hot fudge sauce? If not, you MUST try it. This recipe is only 5 ingredients and so quick to make.

It's so thick and delicious. I love it warm enough to start melting the ice cream a bit when I pour it on.

Last week, I bought a jar of chocolate sauce for a recipe. I got a good brand, not that chocolate syrup that parades as an ice cream topping. I'll admit, I did it for the convenience. 

I cannot tell you how disappointed I was.  Nothing can compare to real homemade chocolate sauce.
