Zucchini season has arrived! So I’ve started with some awesome Zucchini Bread! You can throw in nuts or chocolate chips or nothing at all, whatever you want! But I really do love baking with vegetables because it makes it all healthy, right? So I can eat as much as I want, right?
When I was growing up, my neighbor has the most extravagant garden. She would pay me to water it while she was out of town and being a poor 10-year-old I would take the job. But I never understood her love of gardening.. until last summer.
Last year, I planted some zucchini plants, basil and mint. Let me tell you, it was the funnest thing ever! I would wake up every morning, fill up a mixing bowl (no watering can) and go out side barefoot to water the plants. I only got about 3 zucchini from my 7 plants but that’s because I didn’t pay much attention to them… whoops! I was so excited to try again this summer but my new job will be keeping me away from the garden so I couldn’t plant much this season.
I love quick bread recipes! A slice of bread with smoothie is my favorite breakfast
Remember… the smaller Zucchini have more flavor!
Looking for something a little sweeter? Try these Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes… the kids will never know they’re full of veggies :)
