YUM! Why don’t I cook more often? I find that I make excuses for myself.. that I don’t have enough time or I don’t think I have all the ingredients… why?? Basically what I am getting at is, when I find that I do make that extra effort to make something homemade for the family, everyone appreciates it. The house always smells delicious, the kids love eating what is fresh out of the oven and don’t even get me started on how pleased the husband is with some home cooked anything!

Today I have the pleasure of sharing Josephine’s Zucchini Loaf. I found this recipe on her blog back in August and have been wanting to try it out ever since. Boy am I glad that I didn’t wait any longer! Josephine is a very talented mother and blogger, she shares stories about motherhood and more delicious recipes on her blog, Josephine: A Creative Life. Thank you Josephine for letting me share your awesome recipe today, I hope that you all get a chance to try this one at home, and if you can’t today — pin it for another time (just don’t make too many excuses like I do, haha!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cocoa

  • 2 cups of grated zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of brown (or yellow) sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 loaf pans. Grate two cups of zucchini and set aside.
  1. In one bowl, mix flour (white and whole-wheat), salt, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and cinnamon together until all the dry ingredients are well combined.
  1. In another bowl, using a hand or stand-up mixer, beat eggs, vanilla, sugar and vegetable oil until they resemble a cream.
  1. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix until well combined.
  1. Add zucchini and dried cranberries and mix.
  1. Divide batter evenly between two pans, filling each about ¾ of the way.

  • Day 2 of Vegas today and this is literally one of the only photos I’ve taken! We’ve been busy at the kids expo, walking and chatting all day yesterday. Going to spend the morning there today and then take the rest of the day off. What I wanna know is if anyone has been on this before. It moves Soooo slowly, I’m intrigued but, is it worth it?
  • 🌴 🍹 🌊 👙 ☀️ + a lot of walking.

Paige and I are exploring the ABC kids expo today, follow along @littlebeanxco stories to check out upcoming kids gear come 2018.
  • Heading out for three nights tomorrow morning for the last trip of the year (that’s planned right now anyways 😂)Going to miss these guys, but also going to love the hot weather, uninterrupted sleep, poolside lounging, peeing (and pooping) in silence, possible daytime drinking, hmm what else...

  • My eyes keep shifting from her bright blue eyes to her really cute finger dimples, and it's as if she's thinking, "Mom. What are you looking at?"
  • Your hopes, dreams and aspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, only if you let them.

My recent trip to Ontario was a reminder of where you can go and what you can do when you follow your dreams. Which was also a repetitive theme throughout the speakers at @blogpodium •
Captured during our @flairairlines flight. More about our trip on the blog, with tips on how to save money on your next trip to Hamilton. Learn from us, @lovinglittlesblog and I learnt the hard way on a few things, haha!
