A baking kinda day

Not sure I would be posting today, I used my time wisely this morning and took pics as I prepared for a morning of baking. Using my brother's fresh zucchini , I baked some bread and a batch of chocolate chip cookies before throwing in a roast. It is cold outside but the sun is so bright it is impossible not to feel happy and motivated to fill the house with yummy aromas from the kitchen.
I started one medium zucchini..... shredded in food processor.

.....don't forget the raisins!

Mix it good!

 DH had nabbed a sample before I photographed it,LOL. Good thing there are two loaves!!!!

Moist and healthier than the chocolate chip cookies!

But everyone needs a choice of treats on a cold Autumn day right? After all, there is a new gal of milk in the fridge!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Thanks for all the kind notes :-)  We will get results on Friday....Hugs!


  1. Hi Pat

    I missed seeing your last post until today. I sure hope all is well and you will get some good results. Better to check everything out then they know how to help him.

    I think your house smells better then mine today. I have spent the day cleaning out the pantry and a few cupboards. It is amazing what you accumulate after 10 years. Yes it has been 10 years in our new florida home. Not so new any more I guess.

    Try not to worry.

  2. Looks so good-almost makes me want to cook--almost! Never was good at cooking although I have a good zucchini bread recipe. May have to get ambitious. It is a beautiful sunny day but I just got done mowing and it is cold! Hope we get some indian summer,I need to clean the garage out. So much to do, time seems to go so fast these day-Good luck this week-Hugs and prayers-Leslie

  3. I have never used courgettes (as we call them over here) in a cake - would love to try out that recipe - it looks delicious.

    You are a woman of my own heart - I love backing and cooking - makes a home welcoming, and comforting, relaxing - and just nice and cosy.

    Really cold here too today - not had time to blog - but there is always tomorrow.

    Praying the results are good ones on Friday

  4. Chocolate chip cookies and zucchini bread! Nummy aroma! I thought about baking today but have sat on the deck reading in the sunshine instead!!! Warm 62 degrees!

  5. Lovely blog, and in purple too, my favorite color!

    I wandered over to your blog. Found you on the 2009 One World One Heart Giveaway site. After watching the movie Julie and Julia recently, I've decided to try and go through the ENTIRE OWOH list, from beginning to end, in 90 days and connect/reconnect with all the artists and blogs that truly inspire me! Your blog is amazing and really resonated with me!

    A bit about me. I'm a mystery writer, jewelry artist, and college professor. Yes, and a Gemini, if you couldn't tell! Here is my blog, where I blend my mystery writing and jewelry craft:
    My first mystery Keeping House: A Madame President mystery just came out on Amazon.
    Take care and as Julia Child might say, "Bon Blogging!"

  6. Been thinking of you off and on all day!I cleared some crows from your farm in Farmville! On Farmtown ~ it always says your farm was hit by a tornado but no worries ~ got that all cleared as well!
    Keep Smilin'
