I'm a new reader, and just stumbled across your site via the St Louis food bloggers list.
I've been hunting for good recipes that call for zucchini, since I'm swimming in summer squash from our CSA. These sound yummy, and it looks like if I make them while my husband's out of the house he may not notice the zucchini!
They were quite good...like a veggie dessert. Yum!
