Zucchini Boats

Zucchini season will be here before you know it. Especially if you live or spend your winters in the warmer climates like I do here in Arizona. These were fun to make a just delicious, even my main man liked them and he has extremely discriminating tastes. Try this when zucchini season hits I think you will like them too. One last thing, just bake them to el dente’ otherwise they get mushy. Hope you enjoy them.

Marge taught LooksLikeHomemade founder, Carrie how to cook while standing on a chair in the kitchen and cracking eggs and stirring batter. She also taught her how to shop on a budget, repurpose things into new things, and what little "craftiness" Carrie has, mom is responsible.

Now she's contributing to LooksLikeHomemade, because Carrie taught Mom how to blog. Looks like things are coming full circle!
