Cool off with this great addition to any taco, nacho, or southwest salad! Move over watermelon salsa because there is a new melon in town. Go ahead and give this Cantaloupe Cucumber Lime Salsa and try and fall deeply in love.
Well today was an epic baking experiment FAIL. What can I say??? You win some and you lose some. Honestly, I think the saying should be “you win some and you lose more than you can even count.”
I really had high hopes for today’s creation. I was saving a zucchini in the fridge to make a loaf of lemon zucchini bread. My vision was this lovely sweet and robust, lemony quick bread with little speckles of shredded green zucchini, topped with a tangy lemon almond glaze. Doesn’t that just sound fabulous??? If it doesn’t, pretend that it does.
Anyway, I made my test muffin and it rose beautifully. I wasn’t in the mood to actually taste the mini muffin, but since it looked so pretty I assumed that the flavor and texture was spot on. So I poured the remaining batter into a loaf pan and baked away.
That bread looked like heaven. It rose to the perfect height and created ideal little cracks along the surface of the bread. I was silently praising myself for what a genius I was, and was anticipating all the “oooh’s” and “awww’s” I would be receiving from my family after they tasted a slice of this heaven….
