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!!
