Nutty Zucchini Bread

You know it’s July in New England when the zucchini abundantly starts growing from the garden & you just don’t even know where it is all coming from! I have been making a lot of zucchini dishes lately (more to come), but when my Nana put me up to the challenge to make her some zucchini bread, off I went. I actually made not one, but two, zucchini breads before this that failed miserably. This one came out great. Very tasty & I loved the texture – & Nana approved!
