Delight in the summer with this appetizer for Fried Zucchini Blossoms

I have the fondest memories of my mom making Fried Zucchini Blossoms when I was a kid. Our family garden was always overflowing with zucchini in the summer, and when the golden-orange blossoms arrived, we knew we were in for a special treat. Not only did my mom fry them, but she would also coarsely chop them and add them to frittata. Yum!

These muffins (and multiple variations of them — the possibilities are endless!) have become a favorite in my house. It all started when my youngest niece came to visit last Christmas (she brought her parents, too). She was just a few months past her second birthday, and from our frequent FaceTime conversations, I knew that she loved quinoa. That was a toddler-favorite first for me, but okay!
