Last week my co-worker, Loren, brought me a colorful array of fresh veggies from his garden including some zuchinni, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and small yellow tomatoes in the shape of a pear (fittingly named yellow pear tomatoes). I usually don’t eat tomatoes unless they’re in a dish or on a sandwich but the yellow pear tomatoes were so good and sweet I could eat them alone!
I’ve always had a thing for carrot cake but my obsession for it grew after I had some of the most AMAZING carrot cake from Papa Haydns on NW 23rd Street in Portland. After that experience I can whole heartedly confirm that carrots have the potential for an amazing dessert but what about that extra zuchinni I had lying around? I turned to google and found Paula Deen’s Chocolate Chip Zuchinni Bread recipe so I thought I’d give it a shot.
