*I Cook Barefooted!* ~ Zucchini Brownies

Barefoot Love!   

I have an odd confession to make.
Store-bought brownies often taste to me like Play-doh.


Oh, yeah!

And there's THIS GUY.

Apparently, I'm not alone in this weirdness.

A friend gave me this recipe years ago. 
They're better than chocolate.
They're chocolate veggies!
Incredibly moist, and not like Play-doh at all.

Did you know zucchini sometimes grow to three feet long?

Don't like 'em boiled, fried or cooked up in a casserole?
I promise you.
What they don't know... makes you the winner.
Well, them too. 

By the time they realize there's 
"somethin' different" about those brownies,
they'll already be stuffing a second into their mouth!
