    I love the idea of pumpkin pie spice. Does anyone add cloves to theirs? Just wondering. I add it to my pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies. Oh.... I LOVE pumpkin!

    You can shredd your zuchinni and freeze in 2 cup batches. Defrost and dump into your bread mix. We always make 6 loaves at once then freeze it and thaw 20 minutes before slicing and serving cold.

    My mom makes these awesome zuchinni brownies. I just texted her for the recipe. You can make them blondies or brownies actually. All kids seem to love them. I will post it as soon as she sends it.
