Garden Recipes: Zucchini Bread

Zucchini is a versatile vegetable that can be used in everthing  from breads, soups, chips or salad,  highlighting a sweet or savory taste. 

Zucchini is a low calorie vegetable but who can resist a nice cream cheese frosting for your sweet tooth or a pad of butter if made as a comfort bread.

Mom has a variety of bread recipes that she uses, some has nuts, raisins or just plain. It all depends on what she has in the pantry, and she knows this time of year this is the first of many that are made during the fall season. 

These days mom can be up and down with her health so she is always looking for items that she can batch cook and freeze.  My sister and I are out of state so our bread goes into the freezer until our next visit. The other loaves if not eaten hot out of the oven are shared with family, visitors or at church functions.

As we mentioned in previous posts mom shares her love by cooking and we share our love by giving you simple solutions to everyday problems.
