Adventures in Cooking

This week I plan to share a few recipes Ryan and I have made since we moved in together. Our taste palate is relatively similar- if not spot on, and we are both willing to experiment.

This is Zucchini Bread IV. I
modified the recipe a little, I took out nuts and cut down on sugar and oil. Here's what I did.
