Greek Yogurt Zucchini Bread with Walnuts

The Greek yogurt in this recipe caught my eye for the love of zucchini bread. With summer temps headed towards triple digits these weeks, who really wants to turn on the oven during the day? This is a great recipe – producing a moist, no-nonsense quick bread, without the need for mixers and such. Bake it up early in the morning or in the evening when it gets cooler.

Double Chocolate Ricotta Muffins with Kumquats & Walnuts

Meyer Lemon Curd - Teenie Cakes

Foolproof and Luscious, Light Meyer Lemon Curd

As our fruit trees start sharing more of their gifts and with every season of bountiful harvests from the garden and markets, I want to steal a bit of the season and extend it through homemade goodness like curds, preserves, jams, jellies, butters, and marmalades...goodies in a jar(s)!
