ZUCCHINI BREAD

 

Zucchini Bread - TSLC

This quick bread made with zucchini is so good it will not last long. The recipe makes two loaves and it freezes well.  It will keep in the refrigerator for a week, too. This bread always gets great reviews. I just made it today because I have tons of zucchini and it is already half gone.  I am tweaking and updating some photos on the site and reposting this bread since it is that time of the year for zucchini!  You can leave out the nuts or you can add chocolate chips to this recipe, too.  I always make one with chocolate chips and one loaf without.  Just stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips to the batter in one of your loaf pans. Either way is delicious!

2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups zucchini, unpeeled,  shredded and drained.  (Pack as much shredded zucchini into the cup as you can. If your shredded zucchini is very wet you can drain in a colander, too)
1 cup walnuts or pecans (Optional)
 
In a large bowl mix sugar, eggs, and oil with mixer.  Add remaining ingredients except nuts and continue mixing. Fold in nuts. Pour into two greased or sprayed 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.  Cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes. ENJOY!

SPICY TUNA PASTA SALAD

Tuna Pasta Salad TSLC

My family loves salads and pasta salad is always a favorite in my home.  This Spicy Tuna Pasta Salad recipe is good by itself or with a meal.  Great to take to pot lucks, too. I like it for lunch and it keeps for several days in the fridge.

3 cups rotini pasta, cooked al dente according to package directions (could use macaroni or shell pasta, too)

2 boiled eggs, chopped

1 small green pepper, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup chopped onion or 3 or 4 green onions

1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped

1 large firm tomato, chopped

2 (5 ounce) cans tuna, drained

1 1/2 cups sour cream

1 (1 ounce) package Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch Dressing Mix (If you don’t like spicy try the original ranch)

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

Pinch of cayenne, Optional

1/2 cup mayonnaise (could use Miracle Whip, too)

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice,  Optional

In a large mixing bowl combine pasta, eggs, green pepper, onion, cucumber, tomato and tuna.   Mix together the sour cream,  dry spicy ranch dressing,  black pepper, salt, cayenne and  mayonnaise. Combine with salad ingredients. Fold in cheese.  Refrigerate several hours or overnight.  Makes 10 to 12 servings. Enjoy!

Note:  You can make this salad using ham, chicken or any meat you like, too.
