It’s Summer and many gardens are blooming. While we had trouble with a deer at the beginning of the season and had to re-plant all of our pepper and tomato plants, our zucchini harvest is looking plentiful. With everyone’s garden goodies, it’s fun to spend some time in the kitchen creating. I shared my Chocolate Chip Zuchhini Cake Recipe last year with a Trim Healthy Mama Twist. Since it’s been such a huge hit, I’m going to share it again, this time with the typical ingredients and the THM way.

Our stove is about 12 years old but I’ve actually worn the timer button out. It no longer “reads” when that button is pushed. So I have turned to AcuRite’s Red Digital Timer to help. It’s simple to use functions allow me to easily time minutes and even seconds (since we all know that seconds matter when cooking and baking certain foods.) The display has large easy-to-read numbers and the buzzer is adequately loud as well. While it can stand upright, I love that it also contains a magnet. This timer is a great size and our kids even use it to time their instrument lessons and practices.

I’m a city girl turned country by my awesome husband and we have three busy boys and two darling daughters. I love spending time with my family, reading Karen Kingsbury novels, and catching up with friends while our kiddos have play dates. I’m blessed beyond measure and can’t wait to see what God has in store.
