Kelly's Yummy Zucchini Bread

Zucchini may be at the back of the alphabet, but it's at the front of our minds when it comes to summer vegetables. 

This miracle squash is so easy to grow, you can easily end up with a bumper crop. But don't let it go to has lots of vitamin A, few calories, and it's simple to cook. 

When the abundant zucchini harvest has you stumped, try this hearty Zucchini Bread.
It is incredibly moist and it stays that way (I can’t verify how long exactly because a loaf only lasts at most three days in my house). But I can tell you that it’s just as soft and fluffy on day three as it was the day I baked it.

This recipe is super easy and makes 3 loaves to share or keep for yourself!
Bread can be frozen for up to 3 months

  • 3 Beaten Eggs
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tbls Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tsps Vanilla
  • 2 Cups packed Grated Zucchini
  • 1 Carrot Grated
  • 3 Cups Cake Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Cardamom
  • 1 Tsp dried Valencia Orange Peel
  • 1/2 Tsp Allspice
  • 3/4 Cup Pecan Pieces

Add grated Zucchini and all other ingredients into a bowl. Use a mixer until well blended. Pour into greased and floured bread pan. Bake about 1 hour at 350 degree's. Use a toothpick to determine if bread is fully cooked. Remove from oven. Once cooled, flip bread onto cooling rack to finish cooling.

Top with whipped butter or whipped cream cheese.

It doesn't get any easier than that!

Kelly's Valentine Love Potion

We love celebrating every holiday with family and friends, and Valentines Day is no exception.  This year my husband and I will be celebrating on Valentines day our own way, but on Sunday, the day after Valentines, we will be celebrating with 9 of our family members.  And if you know me, I have to create a hostess cocktail.  This year I have put my own spin on the traditional Long Island Iced Tea.  These are just as potent as the original, so please drink responsibly. 


1 shot white Barcardi Rum
1 shot Smirnoff Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate Vodka
1 shot white Tequila
1 shot Seagrams Extra Dry Gin
1 shot Dekuyper Triple Sec
1 shot Sweet & Sour

Combine ingredients in a shaker and give it a good shake with a piece of ice.  (Anything with Sweet and Sour should be my opinion.)

Strain into a tall cocktail glass with ice and lemon slices. ( I made heart shaped ice cubes with Strawberry Lemonade Crystal Light)  Top with Pink Lemonade and a splash of LemonLime soda.
Garnish with a Strawberry.  Now that's Sexy!

Happy Valentine's Day Y'all

Sorry about the phone pic, but I was too lazy to pull out the big guns.  :P
