What about a recipe for stuffed with goat cheese? You mention that and it sounds so tasty!

Ok. Open the flower of the squash blossom carefully and fill it with goat cheese. Then twist up the ends of the flower so that it stays in there. I then dip it in a beaten egg and some bread crumbs and fry in olive oil till lightly browned. They are so good. Oh and I leave the zucchini attached to the flower.
