A Little Reminder - Bunch of Zucchini recipe ideas!

Things get evaporated out of my brain easily, wanted to make series of zucchini post, but couldn't get it done. Moreover the fact that I'm organizing an event flushed out of my brain...oh btw hello peeps.....

I'm heavily clouded at work, so unfortunately kept my blog starving! Thought instead of making a full post on one recipe, here are pic's of all recipes I wanted to share, promise to post few of those in following days...

Sail in zucchini boat with shrimp, pine nuts, rosemary, cherry tomatoes and parmesan cheese on top!

                                                 Zucchini chocolate cake with walnuts


So guys, so far I have 5 interesting entries, make my life more tough to choose the best one, send in yours for Zucchini Battle. Here some ideas for you, you never know may be it can help you to formulate (physics is running high in my blood) kick ass recipe.

                                   Spiced ricotta cheese zucchini rolls with olive oil and balsamic vinegar

                                                         Simple zucchini shrimp masala

Guess wat? I completed my first cake order. Yes first cake order for my colleague defence party on Saturday, was pretty excited, since whole group and few other from the department were present. It went fine, made choc caramel cake and black forest cake. Now after completing my PhD if I don't find a job, I know what to do! 

                                                                       Chocolate caramel cake

                                                                      Black-forest cake

And Devaki darling from Weave Thousand Flavors is organising a exciting food trip to Sicily : An Epicurean Voyage to Sicily, sounds fun right. Hop into her blog and join all the foodies on a fantastic journey to Sicily!! 


                                                  Cheery tomatoes, prawns zucchini pasta 

                                                                     Want some?

Oh wow! These are all lovely pictures. I can't wait for your gorgeous cake recipes.

I know what you mean, as physicists, doing research is just addictive. I sometimes wish there are more than 24 hours in a day so I have some time for blogging. Whenever I have an hour to spare mostly during lunchtime, I blog as much as possible. All I can say, just keep it simple. Hope it helps.:)
