My Favorite Zucchini Bread (Our Family Recipe)


My family is fortunate to have some of the best home cooks. Many in my family still plant, grow, and harvest their own fruits and vegetables from their amazing gardens each year. With every stir of the spoon or chop of the knife, love is abundant in our cooking.

A few in my family have even ventured out and are successful bakery owners/entrepreneurs. This recipe was passed down to me by my mother from her mother Doe Tooley. It brings me joy to sift through my recipe cards and find hand-written recipes. This is one of my favorites this time of year using frozen zucchini that were harvested from the summer.
