Getting Creative in the Kitchen

It’s that time of year when everyone has an excess of zucchini. I’ve been getting wonderful squash from my mom’s garden and my neighbor, Sylvia. I decided to use some of it for zucchini bread. I don’t yet have an art studio, but I can be creative in other ways, right?!! Like cooking.

I tried a super healthy zucchini bread recipe from Cathy Fisher’s Straight Up Food blog. Her recipes are all vegan and sugar, oil and salt free. This zucchini bread uses oat and millet flour, which I made by grinding the whole grains in my Vitamix. You can use other grains and substitute already ground flours. It’s sweetened with dates and grated apple. It’s very good, and only slightly sweet, which I like. If you want it sweeter, add a few more dates.

    Quality ingredients combined create culinary art!
    Your pics, a.k.a. “food porn”, have me contemplating firing up the oven :-)

      I highly recommend the zucchini bread! Too bad I can’t send you a few slices of this one. :(

    Appreciate your intentions, Cassie! I fear this cook must bake :-(

    Thanks for the link to the zucchini bread. I printed it off and our zucchini will be large enough to use by next week.
