I’ve been cooking up all kinds of tasty goodness using produce from the garden this summer. Normally I make a crazy-good zucchini bread, but tonight I decided to change up my recipe a bit and use pattypan squash and pecans instead of zucchini and walnuts. I must say, the results were certainly worth the effort! It’s a squash bread recipe worthy of sharing. Enjoy!
