Peach and tomato season are in full force, and I couldn’t be more excited. OH and figs, aka the perfect ingredient to make any dish feel a little fancy. Plus #AKZucchiniWeek starts tomorrow, so I’ve got you covered on sneaking zucchini into pretty much any recipe you can think of.

Start with these zucchini brownies, and thank me later. SERIOUSLY THANK ME LATER.
