At this point I’m adding avid baker to my resume. Something about baking is therapeutic for me. Believe it or not I don’t always bake but when I do I’m usually reaching for the zucchini to make bread. Can you blame me? Theres a full cup of veggies in each loaf. I’m all for adding those veggies in any way possible.
While recipe testing I made several loaves. My very first loaf I gave to my family to test. Slowly they’ve been more open in trying whatever recipes I seem to whip up in the kitchen. To my surprise they all loved it! It wasn’t until after they had a taste that I disclosed that it had zucchini. You really can’t taste any zucchini at all.
