Call Me Master Chef…NOT!


This weekend I was going through my Pinterest food board looking for something to eat for dinner when I came across Lauren's Zucchini Muffins recipe.  She made these for me back when I visited her in Tennessee and I begged her to put the recipe on her blog.  When I saw them this weekend I craved them and knew I needed to make them.

So I looked through my kitchen and all I needed was the zucchini, which I picked up at the grocery store on Saturday.  Please make note I was proud because I thought I had bought some pretty big ones at a good price.  Fast forward to last night.

I was making the muffins and had done everything but grate the zucchini.  I find out I don't have a grater like I thought, but instead pulled out my food processor (Thanks Kel!) which worked perfectly! First problem solved.  As I continued chopping up the zucchini I started smelling it and noticing that its insides were a little different than I remember zucchini being.  Thats when I realize….. I BOUGHT CUCUMBERS!!!!

I knew that smell was familiar! I was seriously mad that I had done this! I really was craving the muffin goodness.  So I texted Lauren telling her what I did.  I didn't know if I should just wing it and have cucumber muffins or cook the rest of the batter without the "zucchini".  With Lauren's help I decided to do half and half.


So after 25 minutes I pulled them out and did a taste test……

Regular Batter: Super yummy and cinnamon but a little dense

Cucumber Muffins: Definitely have a slight test of cucumber and I would prefer the zucchini, but really not awful!

If you ever learn anything from me, let it be this: Read the directions and read the labels!!

Cucumbers??? ahaha--okay, sorry for laughing so loudly, but that was pretty funny! Thanks for sharing! I've made a lot of zucchini baked goods in the past, good to know that cucumbers work, too! :)
