If time is short, bake a pan full of moist, flavorful sweet bites. Dessert is served or snack time is taken care of. Share with friends, coworkers, or cut and freeze for an icy-cold foundation for a scoop of ice cream. As zucchini comes on in the garden, plan on shredding some for freezing. Just thaw, drain and add to cookie or bar dough for an added boost of moisture and goodness.
