Recipe

Sometimes we all need a little extra motivation to get out of bed, especially this time of year when it is easier to stay cuddled up than brave the cold air waiting for you the minute you get up. Ugh, I just want to stay in bed all day. My new strategy – make something delicious that I am excited to eat in the morning and program the coffee machine so that I can smell fresh coffee before even getting up. It’s kind of working, and this delicious zucchini and carrot bread is helping. It’s the perfect blend of traditional zucchini bread and carrot cake, and tastes great with a light spread of cream cheese warmed up in the morning.
