Best Ever Zucchini Bread

I do it every year.  I plant zucchini and eat them every way I can think of.  By about mid-July, I'm over them.  This year I only planted 1 plant, but I still have way more than I could ever use.   This bread recipe is our very favorite summertime staple.  

Moist and Delicious Zucchini Bread Recipe

My kids ask to make it all the time.  "Why yes son, you MAY make Zucchini Bread as long as you promise to do all the dishes afterwards and bring me a warm, buttery slice, will you?"  I mean, it works out for us.

Texas Caviar

This recipe reminds me of summer nights at my sister's house.  She always makes it when we get together, but I'm not sure if she know that I sneak spoonfuls of it.   I mean, it's great with chips, but totally uneccesary.

It's super quick to whip up a big batch of this and I love to use it the next day over a salad or on top of a grilled chicken breast.   Crisp, cold and fresh---it's a favorite around here.
