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!

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!

My Thoughts:

Wow! What a week for me. I have been pretty busy at my job. I know I mentioned that in my last post about my job but I am known to repeat myself a little. I had to work this Friday so I missed out on helping my daughter at the local farmer's market. I feel bad about that but she is very understanding. She is such a sweet girl.

I also wanted to share here about a former co-worker. He is a young man I had the pleasure of working with who has turned his hobby into a business. He has made soft plastic fishing lures for several years now and even made them when he was in public school. He would sell his fishing lures to his classmates and even his teachers. After he graduated he took a job where I work and for the past year has had his business on a part-time basis. He has set up a booth at the same farmer's market my daughter sells her baked goods.

He has done very on a part-time basis with his job and decided to leave where I work to pursue his business full-time. I tried talking him into staying where I work for another year or so and continuing to work his business part-time while setting up his website to sell lures on. I couldn't talk him into staying so he has left working full-time with me. I completely understand him doing that and he has support from his parents.

He is currently making the same amount of money from his business as he was making from working at the factory with me. I am proud of him and will blog more about his progress in his business as I hear about it from him. I know he will do very well in the sporting goods industry. He is very motivated and a hard worker. He has a very good character and morals. I don't see too many young men like him today.

I decided to share a picture of us both in this post. I hope you enjoy the picture. When he has his website up and his store completely going I will do a post on all those details. His business is Bubba Reds Bait Co. If you are on Facebook you can follow him on his Facebook business page called Bubba Reds Baid Co.

Now allow me to share my thoughts on cinnamon rolls. I absolutely love those cinnamon rolls. There is something about the cinnamon and sugar with the icing that my tastebuds love. I love cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven. My daughter has a cinnamon roll cookie she makes and sells at the farmer's market and they always sell fast. They are one of my favorite cookies she makes. When they are warm they take just like fresh cinnamon rolls. I love to have hot coffee with fresh cinnamon rolls. 

More Thoughts On Cinnamon Rolls:

The history of the cinnamon roll or cinnamon bun is something that many will debate about. The Swedes claim that the cinnamon-baked delight originated there in the 1920s. You can read more interesting facts about cinnamon rolls at The Sussex Kitchen.

Extra:

Do you love cinnamon rolls? What do you think about my low-fat cinnamon roll easy recipe?

Quick Question:

Do you like chopped nuts on your cinnamon rolls? I love nuts but I do not really like them on my cinnamon rolls. I believe chopped nuts can give your baked cinnamon rolls an extra texture many enjoy. Another quick question, do you think that roasting nuts to put on cinnamon rolls would add something special to the taste? It is just an idea I have and I have not tried it but I do think it is worth a try. If I do try this I will share it here on my blog.

Thank you for taking the time to read my easy recipe. Please leave a comment and share it with your friends who might enjoy a low-fat recipe.
