IMG_6460 Zucchini's are plentiful this time O' year. (Funny thing happened to me in my gardening adventure this year. I thought I bought, planted and nurtured a zucchini plant for my garden...but instead I got a yellow summer squash. Equally as yummy, but not what I thought or intended. Ha!) My Dad saved the day. Dad has a garden and he planted zucchini. So, have no fear Dad has supplied me with more than I know what to do with zucchini's. Let's make zucchini bread! This recipe is easy and has a nice twist with the applesauce, orange juice and almonds...YUM! xox lisA What you need: 2 c sugar 1c vegetable oil 3 eggs 2 tsp vanilla 2 c shredded zucchini 1/2 c applesauce 1/3 c orange juice 3 cup whole wheat flour 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 3/4 tsp cinnamon 1 cup sliced almonds What to do: 1.
