There’s nothing quite like whipping up a loaf of homemade zucchini bread, slathering it with butter, and sitting down to enjoy it around the table with family and friends. I remember doing just that every summer of my childhood when my mom would make this exact recipe with ripe zucchinis. This time around, we were lucky enough to have a massive garden-grown zucchini from our employee’s garden and we munched on this loaf during our weekly team meeting. It’s been a favorite of my family’s for so long, I’m excited to finally share it with the Lime Ricki team – and you! I hope you have someone special to share it with, whether that’s your coworkers, family, or a couple close friends while you chat or watch the latest show on Netflix.
