Classic Zucchini Bread
One of the absolute best things about this time of year is all the fresh produce. Is anyone else a huge fan of farmers markets? As I do not have a green thumb or any free time to garden even if I did, I am ever so thankful for the locals who bring their harvest to the town square every Saturday morning. I soak in the smells and sounds and tastes and pretty colors. 

One of my favorite things to buy fresh from the farmers market is zucchini. This is such a versatile vegetable. I sauté it in olive oil with caramelized onions and eat it in a big bowl; serving after serving with no guilt!

Another fantastic way to use all the summer zucchini is to make homemade Classic Zucchini Bread. The sweet cinnamon aroma of this piping hot bread is a thing of beauty, second only to the delicious taste!

Classic Zucchini Bread

This recipe makes two loaves of zucchini bread, so wrap one up and deliver it to a friend along with a gallon of Tradewinds Slow Brewed Iced Tea! Now wouldn’t that be a sweet surprise? I love Tradewinds teas for its fresh taste and variety of flavors. It’s so easy to find in the grocery store drink isle whenever I need a gallon for home.

    This sounds delicious. I have my grandmother’s recipe and it has pineapple in it which makes it super yummy! Are the 47 carbs for the whole loaf or just a slice? I recently found date sugar which I want to try because it is more glycemic friendly. I think I will give that a try! I love Tradewinds Tea! Thanks for sharing!

    Mmm! I love Zucchini Bread — it’s a delicious way to get my kids to eat their veggies and they don’t even know it! Makes a great food gift for friends, too.
