My mom makes chocolate zucchini bread. Well, she did when we were kids. I don’t think they eat so much dessert foods now that we’re grown. Regardless, I asked her to send me the old recipe. The poor card has seen better days!
I’ll do my best to get those interpreted correctly here.
2 ½ C flour (unsifted)
2 C sugar
½ C cocoa [presumably Dutch processed but certainly powder]
2 ½ t baking powder
2 t vanilla
1 ½ t [baking] soda
2 t orange peel (grated) [zest]
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
2 C zucchini (shredded)
¾ C butter or margarine [seriously, butter though]
½ C milk
[ewe] 1 C pecans or walnuts (chopped) [No nuts! obviously optional]
Pour [something] greased and floured [something] [maybe cake] pan or Bundt pan
Bake 350° for 1 hr
Cool in pan for 15 min
Turn out on wire rack
2 C powdered sugar
3 T milk
1 t vanilla
I have no specific memory have actually eating it, but I know we greatly enjoyed doing so.

In explaining his unhappiness he told Gertrude Stein, they talk about the sorrows of great artists. A little artist has all the tragic unhappiness and the sorrows of a great artist and he is not a great artist.

My neighbor is a hunter and a fisher which has been a boon for my access to random unexpected proteins. We were talking the other day about the jerky he makes (nearly all of his goose breast ends this way). He uses a recipe from a friend of his and I told him I could post it to my blog so it would be easier for him to find. So, here it is.
3T coarse salt
1C brown sugar
3/4C soy sauce
3/4C Worcestershire sauce
2T chili powder
3T ground (black) pepper
2T (red) pepper flakes
I am going to try it out at some point. From there I will likely play with it and see what works for me. Anyway, perhaps it will be a good starting point for you as well.
