Have a lot of zucchini? Make a few loaves of this delicious bread and store it in your freezer.
This past weekend I was the recipient of some zucchini. This year, like last year, it seems I don't need to bother planting my own garden - my family and friends have an abundant supply of vegetables from their own gardens and like to share. As the zucchini keeps coming I found myself wondering just what I was going to do with it all. After going through my cookbooks and surfing the internet, I decided take a peak into my grandma's recipe box. It's an older box, dusty, and filled to the brim with all sorts of recipes handwritten in my grandma's unique scribble. My grandma, who passed away last year, used to always say her handwriting was so bad, even she couldn't read it. The first recipe in her box just so happened to be a handwritten …
