Zucchini Wheat Germ Bread

Aaron's Grandma's recipe Smile

Use two 5" x 9" pans
Bake at 350 for 1 hour
Use toothpick test for "doneness"...stick toothpick in center and if it comes out clean it is done!

3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tsp maple flavoring
2 cups coarsely grated zucchini
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 tsps baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsps salt
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/3 cup sesame seeds for the top

Grease and flour bread pans by covering bottom and sides with butter and then flour.

Grate zucchini and set aside. Whip eggs, add oil, sugar, and maple. Mix until
foamy. Add zucchini and stir.

Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl, except sesame.

Add dry flour mixture to wet mixture and stir until blended.

Make a crazy face (baking is fun!)

Pour into pans

Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and pop into the oven.

Cool in pans for 10 minutes and turn upside down on racks to finish cooling.

I Pulsing Love frozen mango chunks! available in the frozen foods section at the grocery store.
I swear they are so good... the consistency of a mango lends itself to freezing quite well, they don't get all hard the way some frozen fruits do. Just thought I'd share that since I'm about to explode with delight.

Savory Sauce:

very similar to the sauce used on EVERYTHING at one of our favorite restaurants in Redondo Beach called the GREEN TEMPLE.

The Green Temple
1700 S Catalina Ave
Redondo Beach, CA 90277
(310) 944-4525

(it is vegan, but they have real cheese for some dishes if you ask for it)

my good friend justin is now taking over the raw items on the menu

this sauce is good on everything. we usually make brown rice with black or pinto beans with whatever vegetables in a huge bowl and drench it in the sauce. my favorite vege is white corn because it makes everything roughly the same size. hee hee


3/4 c. safflower oil
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. Braggs Liquid Aminos
1/8 c. Brewer's yeast flakes
1/4 tsp. kelp powder
1/4 tsp. spike seasoning
1/4 tsp. basil
1 tsp. parsley
1/8 tsp. granulated garlic
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. Tamari sauce
1 pkg. firm tofu (16oz)

Put in the Blender! thats it!

( i like to puree the tofu in a food processor first, because it makes sure its really creamy...the blender is not as good)

It lasts a while in the fridge and it reheats well.

the TL agrees.

The Green Temple is more than enough to satisfy my carnivorous desires, and the Savory sauce they use is the bizomb.

Go fourth and produce thy wonderous savory creations and rejoice!

I don't follow recipies often. except when baking. but here's a neato idea that you might dig.

What you'll need:

Some of them really large Cali Strawberries
1 Mango (i love mango tooooo)
1 Papaya
Some heavy cream
A healthy amount of chocolate

a double boiler
sauce pan
sharp knife
parchment paper
some toothpicks

What to do:

Da Berries

1. Cut off tops of strawberries.

2. carve out the whiteish centre of the berry to create a cavity.

3. Dice Mango and papaya into small iddy bity cubes. A sharp knife is a must

4. "Stuff" mango and papaya into the cavity of strawberry

Da Chocolate, mmm chocolate

1. Heat chocolate until melted in a double boiler

2. Warm up equal part cream in a sauce pan. careful don't let it burn. there's nothing worse than burnt cream.

3. Add Cream to Chocolate in Double boiler. Fold in with spatula. If the cream is warm enough it should mix quite well, and become real glossy and sexy. You just made Ganoche. if you did it wrong, it'll be a matte finish. but don't worry its still chocolate. Nothing wrong with that.

Put 'm Togetha

1. Dip strawberries in chocolate, and place on parchment paper. Stick a toothpick through the berry on an angle for better dipping prowess

2. Set the berries in fridge to let the chocolate harden. It might not get solid and hard but don't worry thats the goodness of Ganoche.

I recomend this recipe for an evening of romance. It'll get any partner salivatin. that is of course if you don't end up hiding in the bathroom eatin em all your self.
