Just when you think it's over...it's not! There was yet another nice sized zucchini hiding under the leaves. We thought we'd turn this one into something sweet for a dessert treat. Giving it a zesty lemon flavor, then adding a lemon glaze was just the right touch! This recipe is moist and delicious - perfect for a light after-dinner treat.
