I have been following Lisa at Sall’s Country Life for a while now. I recently started following Lisa’s sister, Barb, at Knit and Pearl. I love these South Dakota gals’ photography and outlook on life. When I saw that these sisters started a blog together, I was a sure follower! Pickles and Petunias: “Just two sisters sharing simple pleasures… old fashioned ways… country cooking… yada,yada,yada.” They share old family pictures, stories and recipes.
I have to admit, I was a little stumped by zucchini and brown sugar ingredients for this months Lila’s Zucchine Bread. It was just what I was looking for.. I kind of had in the back of my head to do a quick bread recipe, as I am a huge muffin eater. I did a little searching and fell short of finding a recipe that suited me. Last week I saw this recipe called
I made a few adjustments to the original recipe. I used a half cup of the sugars vs. the one cup called for and substituted apple sauce for the salad oil. I had to google mapleine as I had never heard of it before. Good thing I have pure maple syrup in the house as a replacement.

My non zucchini bread eating Hubby walked in and told me the house smelled awesome. He then grabbed some bread and told me how delicious it was. Yea, Miss Lila maybe I can get some veggies and whole grains in the Rancher after all!
