More About This Recipe

  • Muffins! With sautéed garlic, garden zucchini and like, a lot of cheese. Oh dear. I made some muffins, and I need to warn you, they're VERY cheesy. Not like, it melts when you bite into it (sad face), but like, the deepest cheese flavor ever (happy faces). And also, they possess the most glorious garlic flavor you'll ever know. I say possessed like the muffins are demons. DEMON GARLIC MUFFINS. (Glee faces for life.) The best part, though (besides cheese and garlic?), is the healthy zucchini! I put an exclamation point on that sentence to get you excited about a vegetable. Did it work? You're still thinking about the cheese. Oh my gosh they're so fantastically cheesy. And the GARLIC – you'll definitely flip. Can we just get in that already? Because we should.
