Banana zucchini bread

We planted our first garden this year (and by “we” I mean my husband). Let’s just say we’re hoping for a better turnout next year, but one thing that seemed to really take off was zucchini!

Garlic Herb Bread

Take a look at the long list of ingredients to see what I mean....more
