Zucchini Bread

So. We have a garden.  Matthew has planted a plethora of vegetables in said garden, one class of which was zucchini.  We have harvested two batches of three zucchinis each.  Sounds minimal, no?


Need perspective?  I placed a pop can next to the legumes.


The good news is, you can grate it and freeze it for up to six months.  I spent two hours (!) grating zucchini and placing 2-cup portions into Ziploc bags.

I also made some zucchini bread and muffins.

My original recipe is this one:

3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups peeled and grated zucchini
3 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup nuts or chocolate chips
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder

Stir together eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add to zucchini mixture.

Stir in vanilla and nuts or chocolate chips.

*** Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour, but it may take longer.  Check with a knife.

*** I had used my loaf pans for a batch of banana bread.  I instead used an 8×8 pan and a muffin tin.  The baking time was approximately 40 minutes.

My Auntie Judy. She is my mom’s older sister, and is a FANTASTIC cook. Thanksgiving dinner at her place involves the turkey (of course), stuffing done inside and outside the bird, 3 kinds of cranberry sauce, and I’m not kidding, 6 or 7 vegetables. This is all followed by 2 or 3 desserts, and you leave their house VERY full.
Every once in a while, she will email me recipes that I have come to love. A while ago, I had asked her permission to put some of them on our site so I could share them with you all, and she graciously allowed me to do so. This is on one condition, though. If she ever comes out with a cookbook, you must promise to buy it.
I know I will!

Anyways, try and enjoy, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

A Brilliant Idea

Well, Karen & I were talking (which we do AT LEAST once a day), and we got talking about recipes. And blogging. Both are interests of ours. As are our kids, but we have separate blogs for them. See the links to the right.
Karen told me that she had thought of starting a Blog just for recipes. I told her that I had thought the SAME THING. We also do that AT LEAST once a day.
So, we created a blog we can both post to. Well, I told her I would create it tonight & then email her the details so we can both post to it.
I thought the title was cool. Kind of like Break A Leg.
Enjoy! And email us with cool recipes!
