Zucchini Sticks~

  I followed the recipe from the cookbook, "The Illustrated Kitchen Bible" by Victoria Blashford-Snell. It is a great book, I love it, many recipes contained inside as well as pictures of foods (It might make you starve XD), useful techniques, tips and more! It has 546 pages. And now I'll show one of the recipe from that cookbook which is Zucchini Sticks! It is great for party snack. I served them with some hot sauce, or you can serve them with any other sauce.
