“I inherited a old recipe from a family friend for a traditional (read unhealthy) zucchini and set about fixing it and making it just a bit different. I use cherries as I spent my summers in Northern Michigan eating the cherries right off the trees but feel free to mix it up according to your tastes - my sons favorite is cherry and chocolate chip and my husband prefers chocolate pecan. The recipe can handle up to 2 cups of "add-ins"”
