Carrot & Zucchini Loaf

Since I've recently found a love for zucchinis, I wanted to give this classic recipe a try. I wasn't in the mood for experimenting with baking so I decided to look for a Carrot & Zucchini Loaf recipe on the internet. I fell upon this recipe on Joyful Healthy Eats and it is perfect! This is a great way to hide vegetable for those picky eaters out there! I accidentally added two tablespoons of cinnamon instead of 2 teaspoons and let me tell you, it was delicious! This loaf was moist and had a nice sweet spice to it. Perfect to share over the holidays.

A dish that I always look forward to having during the holidays is a delicious and cheesy hash brown casserole. This dish is a family favorite during gatherings however, it is very fatty and high in calories. This Ham & Cheese Spaghetti Squash Casserole is my healthy take on this dish while keeping the delicious cheesy flavor!
