Hawaiian Zucchini Bread

I love baking quick breads. This recipe comes together quickly with ingredients you probably have in your pantry.

Adding wet to dry
Freshly grated zucchini
Don’t skimp on the zucchini
Pineapple makes this bread
Ready for the oven

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 medium size zucchini, you will want 1 cup grated

1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained well

1/2 cup golden raisins

1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

Hot from the oven
Watch out! It vanishes before your eyes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf pan with nonstick spray.

Whisk together dry ingredients. Beat eggs and vanilla and add them to flour mixture. Add grated zucchini (I used a box grater but good processor will do). Incorporate pineapple, raisins and pecans. Pour into loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool in pan about 15 minutes and place on a plate/tray. Slice and serve.

It’s absolutely delicious warm from the oven, just as tasty cool. Enjoy! This recipe can easily be doubled. Make this recipe and put one loaf in the freezer for later.

Copycat Chicken Salad Chick Broccoli Salad

Copycat Chicken Salad Broccoli Salad

Ingredients:

2 bunches of broccoli or 2 packages of raw broccoli florets

1 cup of grated cheese

1 cup Bacon Bits, I refuse to buy those so I used real bacon

Place in a large bowl.

Dressing:

1 cup of mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup sugar or Splenda

Combine in a separate bowl. Add to broccoli salad and toss well.

That’s the Chicken Salad Chick Broccoli Salad. Broccoli, fake bacon and cheese. You decide.

Below is my broccoli salad recipe recipe that I have been making for my family for years. I actually prefer my recipe because it has more yummy ingredients.

Cydnee’s Broccoli Salad Recipe

Ingredients:

2 bunches of broccoli or 2 packages of broccoli florets

1 cup grated cheese

1 cup of nuts, I used dried roasted peanuts but cashews, slivered almonds or sunflower seeds work too.

1/2 cup red onion, chopped

1 cup of golden raisins or Craisins

1 pound bacon, cooked crisp * and crumbled

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Dressing:

1 cup of mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup sugar or Splenda

Mix dressing ingredients in a separate bowl and add to broccoli salad. Toss to combine. Enjoy!

*I microwaved my bacon on a plate lined with paper towels about a minute per slice depending on the wats of your microwave.

This recipe can easily be a low carb/Keto recipe if the raisins or craisins are omitted.
