Summer Baking

Today I was extra productive. Not only did I accomplish my to do list for work, I also went to the grocery store, got in a good swimming work out and made zucchini bread muffins.

Whenever I make zucchini bread muffins it reminds me of being in college. My roommate and good friend, Dara’s great grandmother used to send her boxes of zucchini bread muffins. I remember snacking on the best homemade muffins while listening to Norah Jones and studying.

I try to make these muffins on a regular basis. If you have never tried them, you should! They are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack, plus you just feel like your making a healthy choice when you pick up a muffin with veggies in it, right? :)

I have a good recipe for the muffins that I have used for the last few years, but today I decided to try something new. Last night I was searching for some new dinner recipes online…I tend to get stuck making the same things for dinner week after week. Anyway, I came across this recipe for blueberry zucchini bread and decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did! It is so good! I made a dozen muffins and then I used the rest of the batter to make a loaf of bread. Jon was a little skeptical of the blueberry addition to my muffins but since he has eaten 3 this afternoon, I am thinking he approves of them too! I think this will become my go to recipe from now on.
