any wicker hanging faux plants now, nor any plastic dish drainers, but I do clearly
remember how thrilled I was with my first tiny apartment kitchen. Like then, I still
thoroughly enjoy working in the kitchen. It struck me recently, that I have been working
in my kitchens(since I have had several since l975), for 40 some years.
Recently, I wanted to use the many zucchini that were in my refrigerator. I did find another
new recipe to try. It was "pineapple zucchini cake with cream cheese frosting.
You too can find it here;
Apparently, it was first posted by the Pioneer Woman. She called it " a cake of such
unfathomable deliciousness" that it couldn't be resisted:). Well, of course I wanted to
try a recipe like that.
I partially shredded the zucchini. I also added chopped glazed walnuts to the recipe.
I made the sheet cake into small loaves. They looked so good when they came out of the oven.
Unfortunately, I did not take pictures after I added the frosting. I did taste it though, and
thought it tasted quite delicious!
When totally cooled, I covered one loaf with plastic and then wrapped it in a new, colorful
tea towel. It will serve as a small gift that I need now. The rest of the small loaves will be
wrapped tightly, and go into my freezer for future uses. I am happy because I don't need to
see the many green zucchini staring at me from my refrigerator shelf now:)
When I am not cooking or baking, I like to dress up my kitchen island for the season. You all
know that Fall is one of my favorites. These small touches and the aroma of apple candles
burning, make my kitchen an even happier place for me. I do kind of miss the tan wicker
plant hanger though:).
And...by my sink, there are still roses from my garden to bring in, and take their
place of honor. I am not sure how much longer that will go on, but for now,
it is about the most interesting thing going on here, at just a little something for you.
I wish I could offer you a slice of this zucchini pineapple cake.
It is chock full of fresh zucchini and pineapple. It must be good for you...right?
Thanks for stopping by. I should say, thanks for remembering that I still have
a blog. It has been a long time since I posted.
