Thoughts On Zucchini Bread:

When I was a kid I was used to having lots of banana bread and one day I had zucchini bread offered to me. It looked so much like banana bread I was immediately interested how it tasted. The similarity between the two breads is difficult to ignore. Banana bread it slightly sweeter to me and it has a banana flavor. I love sweet breads so I naturally liked zucchini bread also. I like to put a little butter on the sweet breads that are fresh from the oven so the butter melts into the bread. My grandmother taught to me sprinkle a little salt on top of the melted butter. That is a nostalgic food memory for me.

More Information For You:

Zucchini bread has it's own national day in the United States and it is April 25th. Even though we are into May at this point in time you can still bake some zucchini bread to celebrate any occasion. The first time zucchini bread recipes began showing up in cook book was in the 1950's. You can learn more interesting historical facts about zucchini bread by visiting Holiday Calendar

Some Questions For You:

Have you baked zucchini bread in the past? Maybe your grandmother, mother, or aunt made a loaf for you to try. Do you have a nostalgic memory surrounding this bread recipe? Please share it with me. Did you see my last recipe? It's not a bread recipe to speak of but it is called Taco Burger Pizza Easy Recipe and if that sounds good to you the easy recipe will not dissapoint.

My Thoughts For Today:

Meme by Animal Feed on Facebook

I enjoy funny food memes I find across the Internet. I came across this meme and thought to share some thoughts on it. Life has a way of putting us through trials and tribulations. As we go through these trials we build up protective layers to guard us from potential threats that may come our way. It's good to learn from our experiences that make us better. Naturaly we want to prevent ourselves from going through the same mistakes again and again. We have only so many trips around the sun and while writing this I am aware that statement may sound negative but in my opinion I think life should be lived for the best. I would like to encourage you to keep love at the center of your life.

If someone has hurt you and you think there is a potential for them to hurt you again, of course avoid it at all costs to protect yourself, but try to find it in your heart to keep love at the center and not hate. Do I sound a little preachy here? It is only my intentions to encourage you for the better. I hope you find this food meme a little funny and get a positive message from it. If you've read my post this far, thank you. I hope this zucchini bread recipe and blog post brightens your day.

Keep on cooking!

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Ingredients: (Chili)

3 tablespoons butter
1 yellow onion (diced)
1 jalapeno pepper (large, seeded and diced)
1 teaspoon of minced garlic

6 cups of chicken broth
1/3 cup of half & half milk
2 regular cans of cannellini drained beans

1 regular can of sweet corn whole kernel (use frozen if you like)
1 (8oz.) cream cheese, soft
1 1/2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breast

Put in the flour and cook for 2 minutes while stirring well. Next, add the chicken broth and stir while pouring it in. Add in the half & half next the same way. Stir in the chili seasonings along with the Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and green chilies. Next, let it boil for about 15 minutes without a lid and then reduce to a simmer.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of the chicken. Put the chicken and the corn in the pot and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes without the lid. Cook it slow so the chicken will be tender.

My Thoughts On White Chicken Chili:

See my recipe videos!

You can see my White Chicken Chili Easy Recipe here on my YouTube channel and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE so you never miss a recipe!

You will love this recipe and if you have never tried White Chicken Chili I am sure you will be a fan of this dish. As I mentioned in my video, a friend of mine shared this recipe with me. I had never tried it before and was excited to cook it and share it with my family. I decided not to go with a White Chicken Chili season packet and mix up my own seasons. I was very glad I decided to do that. Cooking should be fun and challenging but also easy. I love to take my time when cooking and enjoy the process. I love to have cornbread with my chili and this recipe tastes especially good with warm cornbread.

Extra Information For You:

I am not quite sure where White Chicken Chili originated from but if you have some information on the subject I would love to hear from you. Southern Kitchen has a great article on the subject and you can give it a read. They share some history on chili in general. My best guess is that it is an American chili recipe that may have originated in the Midwest. I say that because I am from Missouri and want to claim that many great recipes came from my area. Can you blame me?

A Question Or Two For You:

Have you ever tried White Chicken Chili? If you haven't tried it, when did you first hear of this tasty recipe? Have you ever cooked White Chicken Chili? Needless to say, I am hopelessly addicted to this food and crave it often. I want to give a shout-out to my friend who shared this recipe with me.

Personal Thoughts To Share With You:

Homemade sourdough Jalapeno Cheddar!


My oldest daughter is baking sourdough bread and she is getting good at it. She currently has her hands very busy with three little children and they are such a blessing. She is a stay-at-home mom and has decided to start selling her sourdough bread. She has a culture she keeps and uses it to make her bread. It is very interesting to see her creations and she uses us as tasters of her bread. That is just fine with me because it is very delicious. I am sure she will start selling her bread on Facebook for local marketing. I hope she does well. I will share the future progress of her bread-baking journey and some pictures too.

Please leave a comment below and share your thoughts on this recipe post. I would love to hear from you and as always, thank you for visiting my recipe blog. Be sure to share with your friends and keep on cooking!

3 cups sugar
1 cup salad oil
4 eggs
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup water
2 cups pumpkin
3 1/2 cup flour
3 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Thoughts On Pumpkin Bread:

At the time of this recipe blog post, we are coming to the close of the summer months. It is still warm during the day here in Missouri, but it is nice and cool at night. This pumpkin bread will almost make you think of banana bread when you bite into it, but it has a really nice pumpkin flavor. If you have never had pumpkin bread, you are in for a treat with this recipe. You might never think of pumpkins the same way again after trying it. During the fall time, I always try to get at least one pumpkin for decorating but this recipe makes me want to use it for cooking again. I also like saving the seeds for roasting in the oven. You can add any season you like for that and I may share a recipe I like later on.

Extra Information:

Did you know that pumpkins originated from central America and they began being used for cooking as far back as before the birth of Christ? You can learn more about the history of pumpkins by visiting Classic History. They also share a great recipe as well.

Quick Question:

Have you ever made pumpkin bread? Have you ever eaten pumpkin seeds? I am sure you have been involved in making a jack-o-lantern or just used a pumpkin as outdoor decoration. What are your thoughts on this recipe? If you missed my last recipe I will share it here. It is not a sweet recipe but it is one that will go well with fall weather. It is called Tortilla Soup Easy Recipe and I am sure you will like it if you have not tried it before.

My Thoughts:


I wanted to share a picture of a KitchenAid stand mixer my daughter is wanting to purchase. If you have been reading my posts you will know that she is quite the baker. She mostly focuses on cookies and browning and sells them at the local farmer's market. I haven't been able to get her to several of the last markets because I have had to work on Fridays. The market hours are from 2:30pm to 6:30pm on Fridays. I work a sencon shift job and we start at 3:15pm so when I work that makes it impossible for me to help my daughter get to market. She has been saving her money for a mixer but she is not met her goal yet. She loves the yellow mixer. I think that one is the best too.

I just wanted to say thank you for reading my recipe blog post and to let you know that it helps. If you are interested in helping me to help my daughter reach her goal you can share this post with your friends. It is my goal to share great recipes and entertaining content. I might share trivial information about my life but I am always looking for great people to share with. I am very interested in your comments or opinions. Please feel free to share.

I hope you have a happy Friday and a great weekend. Thank you very much for visiting!
