Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I've been wanting to try chocolate zucchini bread for a while now. I had it in my head that there's no way it could taste like a dessert with zucchini in it. Not that I have anything against zucchini. I love zucchini!! But...when I want chocolate, I want chocolate. You know what I mean?? So not the case here! For one thing, you can't even tell that there is zucchini in here, let alone 1 1/2 cups! And, it comes out of the oven all warm and melty thanks to some chocolate chips mixed into the batter.

Real talk...I DID NOT make these from scratch. I [...]

Can I just say, infant sleep training is not for the faint of heart. I'm probably taking longer with each stage because once he masters one part, I just want to sleep at night so I am hesitant to move on to the next stage. We've only been working on it for a week and [...]

I had such a great weekend! Some of my best girlfriends came down from Seattle with their hubbies for some wine tasting in the Columbia Gorge. The weather could not have been more perfect, the wineries were stunning, the wine was fabulous (correction...is fabulous, as I'm drinking some right now) and the company, amazing. I [...]
