Y’all are going to LOVE this recipe!  It uses up 2 1/2 cups of that zucchini that’s starting to grow of control out in the garden AND it tastes AH-mazing!  Oh my.

Look at those stinking adorable loaf pans from IKEA!  You know you love them 🙂  Last week I attended the IKEA blogger catalog launch and got those adorable loaf pans.
