Who knows.. you may find a new favorite here or
come across an old favorite you've misplaced..

them so check back again to see the new ones.
My gang eats this as quickly as I bake it.
Usually make a double batch in the small
loaves and it makes about 10 to 12 loaves.
Freezes very well. While zucchini is available
in abundance right now, I go ahead and grate it
and freeze it in baggies (2 cups). This way I
have it ready to make bread or whatever.
