How do you get kids to eat vegetables? Put them into this decadent dessert bread – By Meredith Jacobs
One of the greatest things about having asummer garden is harvesting vegetables in the fall. But if you, like me, have an overabundance of certain vegetables like zucchini, it can be overwhelming to figure out what to do with them. One of my favorite solutions is to make zucchini bread. And trust me, your kids will love eating their vegetables when they taste like this. Also, you can easily make extra loaves to freeze and use whenever you need–fromYom Kippur break fast to dessert at your next book group.
