Something other than 20th century design

We do 20th Century Design but we also live in a rural area of Virginia just off the Chesapeake Bay.  Having our business on line and on 1stdibs allows us to have a relaxed life style, that is when Lewis is not driving all across the country searching for all the wonderful pieces that we have in our shop.

This year Lewis helped me plant a mini vegetable garden.  He planted several zucchini plants. We wanted to make sure that we had enough.  How crazy is that!  Mid June the zucchini started to mature.  One day there would be a small zucchini and before we knew it it would triple over night.  I started searching for good recipes.  I have found several that I love, but I think the best by far is a recipe for zucchini muffins.

I took a basic recipe that I found on the web and did my own thing.  Lewis and our neighbor Christine loved them.

Zucchini Muffins

1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1.5 cups grated zucchini (about 2 small to medium-size zucchini’s)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla extract (or vanilla paste)
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tsp. baking powder
Cinnamon and sugar for topping

I added .....More of these would be even better.....
1/4 cup minced crystallized ginger...
1/4 chopped walnuts
1/4 golden raisins....
I substituted pumpkin pie spice for the nutmeg.

preheat oven 375

About 20 to 30 Minutes...Watch for when the look done insert a sharp knife or toothpick...
