Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Zucchini Muffins (Bread)

This was another hit.  However, for taste testing, I made them close their eyes.  I was afraid that the green from the zucchini might change their minds about the taste.  It worked!  and since today is St. Patrick's Day, I just told them it was my adding in green.  However, next time I will probably take the peel off before grating them.  I did make one change in the recipe.  The original recipe called for 1/4 c. oil - I substituted 1/4 cup applesause.
