All Good Things Must Come to An End. Damn.
I biked around Cedar Lake this morning and am sad to report…it smelled like autumn. Lots of fallen leaves, sigh. But hey, swarms of gnats (I discovered several stuck to the sweat on my face when I got home, pretty; I was afraid to check my teeth) keepin’ it summer-real. Thank goodness.
So, I did experiment with making summer squash (as a substitute for zucchini) bread. I baked both a sweet and savory version. The sweet version is fantastic, moist and cinnamon-y, delicious with coffee; the savory was just meh. (Recipe posted for sweet version in comments, below; use summer squash or zucchini, they’re deliciously interchangeable).
Moderate it: many short bread and muffin recipes call for way too much sugar. It’s worth experimenting with cutting it back a bit – I find it hurts neither texture nor flavor, while reducing the calorie/carb profile at least slightly. Hey, every little bit helps.
