Zucchini Harvest

This week I am in charge of my parent's garden while they are out of town. They have a vegetable garden as well as lovely, carefully tended flower gardens. Guess what is producing in abundance? Zucchini, carrots and tomatoes, of course.

I haven't made zucchini bread since going gluten-free so I had to do a search for a new recipe. I found a lot of yummy-looking ones online but they all involved ingredients that I don't currently have in my kitchen and I was not interested in dragging the boys off to the grocery store on the spur of the moment.

I ended up using the recipe for carrot cake on the back of the Pamela's Gluten Free Ultimate Baking Mix with a few modifications. I doubled the recipe, included zucchini, carrots and raisins, and used nutmeg instead of all spice with the cinnamon. It is so delicious even Buster, who hates eating all things green, said it was "pretty good". Spread with cream cheese it is the perfect breakfast (or any time) treat.

Mmmm. We made zucchini bread recently, too, but I've never thought of spreading cream cheese on it. Yum.

mmm...the bread looks delicious, and with fresh-from-the-garden ingredients, I bet it tasted even better!
