Closely related to zucchini are Lebanese summer squash or kusa (not to be confused with cushaw ), but they often are lighter green or even white. Some seed catalogs do not distinguish them. Various varieties of round zucchinis are grown in different countries under different names, such as "Tondo di Piacenza" in Italy and "Ronde de Nice" in France.  In the late 1990s, American producers in California cultivated and began marketing round yellow and green zucchini known as "8-ball" squash (the yellow ones are sometimes known as "1-ball" or "gold ball").  White zucchini (summer squash) is sometimes seen as a mutation and can appear on the same plant as its green counterpart.
FRESH CHICKEN In 2008 and 2009, I cooked one chicken after another, frying chicken one week, roasting chicken the next, baking chicken the next, grilling chicken after that. I tested free-range chickens, organic chickens, branded chickens, grocery-store chickens, warehouse-club chickens, anything with breasts and wings, basically. In the end, I became much partial to the taste and texture of fresh chicken, that is, chicken that's never been frozen . The only place I can find fresh never-frozen chicken is Whole Foods, for me, it's worth an extra trip.
I had to stop keeping Nutella in the house because it had become an addiction around here. I didn't warn my sweet hubby that I planned to stop buying it. I really felt bad the night I watched him methodically going though my pantry with a spoon in his hand the whole time. To this day I still believe I saw his bottom lip trembling when I told him we didn't have any and why. For this recipe, I will make a trip to the store today. What a beautiful loaf of desert bread. Thanks to you Elaine, I will definitely get a foot rub tonight! I love your website. Thank you ever so much for sharing your recipes will all of us.
