On a recent visit to a friend’s house, she gave me some huge zucchinis from her garden. Her family doesn’t like them! But I knew exactly what to do with them.
Growing up, my mom was a wonderful baker. During the Fall, we would enjoy apple pies, pumpkin bread, and my favorite zucchini bread. The recipe is a little timing consuming because of the grating zucchini but it is worth it.
Thereceipe freezes well after it is baked and cooled. I made muffins so my sunshine could take some to school and get some yummy veg into his body! He thinks it’s a cupcake :)
