I take all the fresh zucchini from my parents bountiful garden that I can...because it's such a tasty veggie and you can do so much with it! I'm in full baking mode right now; trying variations of different zucchini bread recipes...and this just might be my favorite. It's definitely been a hit with my Co-Workers...who have been so kind with their thank yous for sharing mini loaves with them.  Of course...I have to thank my parents, for sharing their hard worked on garden goods.
