zucchini bread.

my garden is over flowing with zucchini.  there was a time, about 3 weeks ago, when i was convinced my garden stopped and boycotted the growth of fruits and veggies.  so imagine my surprise when i moved a few leaves and found a zucchini the size of a small animal.  

i spent the better part of the evening scouring the internet for zucchini recipes and after considering fritters and stuffed zucchini, i settled on an oldie but goodie: zucchini bread.  i've never made zucchini bread.  in fact, up until my bread making craze these past couple months, i'd never made anything more than banana bread.  

so i picked this recipe from smitten kitchen and went to town.  a. was shocked because i don't bake.  i generally despise it.  there's something about precisely measuring and doing things in a specific order that drives me crazy.  i prefer a freestyle form of cooking- where anything goes.
substitutions: i didn't have enough sugar and added a 1/4 cup of white sugar and a 1/4 cup of brown sugar.  in my opinion, this ended up being more than enough.  i also added 1/8 cup of chai seeds for a little extra fiber and dried cranberries.

review: overall, i think it turned out pretty good.  the bread is very moist and has a ton of flavor.  next time, i'd add walnuts and a bit more zucchini.
