i heart paula

And so does the carnivore. And our little omnivore too. And you know why? Well, in truth there are lots of reasons. The carnivore's crush goes back to a trip to her buffet at a casino in Tunica, Mississippi. There he learned about the wonder that is her hoe cakes. Even I have to admit that they were the best I ever had. Every month or so he still gets these day dreamy eyes and asks if we can go back. To be fair, I am not immune. The mac and cheese I had there was marvelous. And so was the peach cobbler. Lord knows how may calories it had in it!

But, little omnivore likes Paula for a whole different reason. It is because she came up with a wonderful recipe for zucchini bread. When we were loaded down with this green veggie this summer in our CSA share I knew I would have to find a new way to get my guys to eat it other than my usual side dishes. And who else could I to look to when in need of a delicious disguise for this vegetable but Paula Deen?

But, even I have to admit I was shocked at how incredible this bread was. Sweet, buttery, and nutty. I almost didn't want to share. You can find a link to it here. Please note this makes two loaves. This works great for expectant moms like me - one for now and one in the freezer for after baby comes.

Best of all, my boys and I are getting veggies at breakfast! I heart Paula.


  1. I love zucchini bread and Paula! I recently put zucchini (secretly, of course) in my son's super chocolate-y 16th birthday cake and he loved it! Gotta get the veggies in somehow!

  2. Zucchini in chocolate cake is genius! I will
    Have to remember that for the next bday bash around here.

  3. This looks lovey, I'm craving some right now!
