Another Recipe from Janice’s Kitchen Corner – Zucchini Bread!

This is the ninth installment of Janice’s Kitchen Corner.

Now that our zucchini plant is producing some beautiful vegetables I have been coming up with my recipes. Today I will be sharing my recipe for Zucchini Bread. This is quick, easy and delicious. I love easy and delicious recipes. Don’t you?

Do you want your kids to eat veggies? Bake them in a bread! That works every time! Add a little spices and sugar and they will eat every bite! Try it out! It doesn’t work for every vegetable but you can use butternut squash, carrots, or pumpkin.

Here are the other recipes Zucchini Italiano, Grapenut Custard, Spinach Pita PizzaPortuguese Seafood StewMarinated Mushrooms, Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, Chicken Marsala, and Rice Paper Veggie Shrimp Wraps. In the past I have also shared recipes for Portuguese Bisquits and Drunken Chicken.

Zucchini from our garden (I used one for Zucchini Bread and the other in a previous recipe for Zucchini Italiano.)
