We are at the beginning of zucchini season, and already we’ve sautéed, roasted and eaten summer squash raw. Such a deliciously versatile vegetable! Which also explains why I succumbed to the perennial temptation to turn the big zucchini in my fridge into sweet, moist bread. Traditional zucchini breads use a lot of oil and sugar. I decrease those and add […]

My tattered, splattered recipe, written in a handwriting I recognize as my own from those early years, says it came from Jeree’s mother. I’ve made it several times a year ever since, usually on request from someone who has had it before. […]

Whole wheat flour, honey, nuts and seeds generally find their way into our hearty breads.  All those seeds remind me of the Good Seed bread of Dave’s Killer Bread, which is a great choice if you can’t make your own, and/or don’t have a good local bakery down the street.  Dave’s story is worth reading by the way, which you can […]
