I love Zucchini Bread!!! Although admittedly...I have never made any. I don't really know why, 'cause it is a very easy thing to make, but I just never have. I think that I just might have to try ur recipe and actually make some. My hubby love it as well.

Hope all are happy, healthy, and blessed in your family.

Love & Prayers,

I love zucchini bread and end up making tons of it when we harvest it from the garden. I typically make the bread and freeze it - what a wonderful thing to pull out of the freezer in the winter. I often add banana to it as well...

Oh I love the idea of adding banana to it. I never thought of that. Thanks for the tip.
