Zucchini Bread

One final post before my staycation sadly comes to an end.  Earlier this week I bought some zucchini to try a breakfast frittata recipe.  Unfortunately, I ran out of time and when I was organizing my fridge this afternoon I noticed that they were still in my vegetable drawer.  I had seen this recipe on Pinterest (my favorite website), and thought that it would be a great way to incorporate this ingredient into a healthy breakfast treat.  The end result was fantastic and this recipe will definitely be added to my bag of tricks!  Also, if you have kids, this is a great way to sneak some veggies into a meal or snack without them even noticing.  Sneaky success 😉
