Zucchini Bread

I enjoy fresh baked fruit or vegetable quick breads. (Quick breads are made without yeast.) One of the bonuses you get from baking is having a breakfast ready to eat with a hot beverage. Let’s face it, a lot of mornings I don’t want to spend a lot of time fixing my first meal of the day.  Today’s recipe is a moist zucchini quick bread with lots of flavor.  Zucchini not only has a ton of health benefits, but it is composed largely of water which release during baking to keep your baking extra moist. You can’t taste any zucchini in this recipe but you will get the most delicious bread.

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Al Fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon has 70% less fat and 40% less sodium than pork bacon.  Now I’ve tried turkey bacon before and expected something similar. I stand corrected. Tasted like regular bacon with great flavor. It comes both uncooked and precooked and ready to use. Oh my I’m going to be experimenting with more ways to use it.
