Last night at a family dinner with my mom's family my aunt gave us all some vegetables out of her garden and that included some Zucchini. Here are the amazing zucchini recipes that I have collected.

This first recipe comes from B. Webb a wonderful women that serves with my mother-in-law in their ward relief society presidency. I have to say I wondered how it would be with no meat but it is totally to die for.

Zucchini Casserole

1/2 Chopped Onion
1 Cup Shredded carrots

1 Box Chicken Stove top Stuffing (We use Pork so my bother-in-law can eat it)

First melt 1/4 cup butter in the bottom of the sauté pan. Next add the Zucchini, Crock neck squash, celery, onion, and carrots. Cook until all vegetables become soft and zucchini because almost a see through color. Next Mix Sour cream and Cream soup together. You will also need to melt remaining amount of butter and mix it with your box of stove top stugging.

Snicker Salad

A couple of days ago we celebrated Ms. O's first birthday. We threw a big party complete with dinner, cake, ice cream, and presents. For dinner we had lots of different salads to go along with the pulled pork sandwiches made by my aunt and uncle. Snicker salad has always been a big hit with my dads family so I quickly threw it together before the party. Hope you and your family enjoy as much a we do.

What you need to Purchase:
6 Apples (These can be any kind. I usually choose types that are really crisp.)
6 snickers (Regular size. The more snickers the better)
Small container of Cool whip

How to make:
Cut both the apples and snickers into bite size pieces. Next combined cut up Apples and Snickers with the cool whip. Stir together and enjoy.

***Note about this salad***
This salad should be made only about an hour to and hour and a half before your event. Also it doesn't keep to well in the fridge overnight because the apples brown and the snickers tend to melt.
