OOOh , I like the idea of a zuchini in there!!! BRILLIANT!!!
Your blog has displayed a little funny for me today, it's about a third or more your side bar, and some of your writing is hard to read to try to see it. How does mine look?

You know, I'm liking the blog design but the font is irritating me, too small. I am not smart enough to know how to fix that, so I may end up choosing a new template. In all my free time!!

I love book reviews with recipes :) The cookies look delicious! Were you able to get 48 cookies out of it?
