This was delicious! Almost as good as Grandma's. I used Jimmy Dean HOT sausage-- we like it with the extra kick.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Ok, wow! I used 3 cups of zucchini. This kept so well in the fridge, after 7 days it was still fresh. I use half brown sugar and half white. I also substituted half the oil for applesauce but I think next time I will use all oil as I did not like how it altered the texture. ***UPDATE*** I believe I found the perfect alterations in order to make this a lil' more nutritious-- I used half whole wheat flour and half AP. I used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup (lightly packed) brown sugar. 3/4 canola oil, 1/4 cup applesauce. I also added about a half tsp of nutmeg. I poured about 3/4 full into a bread pan and poured the rest into a muffin pan (8 muffins). These came out so, so good and moist! Still totally sweet-- in fact, I may try and cut the sugar by another quarter cup next time. :)

These were a hit! I used orange juice instead of water and also made an orange glaze for the icing which was OJ concentrate, powdered sugar and vanilla. I can't wait to make these again!

This was delicious! I did add some broccoli and doubled the water. I used 2 cups milk and extra flour. I will definitely make this again. I have a feeling it will taste even better as left overs.

yummy! these are really good, kind of any easy version of the chocolate crackles my mom makes. I did add the suggested 2 tbsp of canola oil and 1 tsp vanilla. I also tried both rolling them in powedered sugar and sifting p.sugar after they were done baking, both turned out great tasting.

I made these as written but I added a bit of vanilla and before baking I dipped a fork in sugar and did the crisscross thing. YUMMY! Please make these-- you must love the taste of peanut butter though. I found that they held up ok still the next day (and tasted wonderful still) but really started to fall apart thereafter. Next time I make them, I will try 3/4 cup of sugar just to see if I like them as much.

Though dough was really yummy, but I did not think the cookie was anything special.
