Instead of cooking up a healthy minestrone with zucchini my friend Cathi grew in her garden, I baked a boozy Chocolate Kahlua Zucchini Bread. It’s already wrapped up (minus two slices) for my upcoming weekend at Camp GetAway… definitely a grownup snack, but of course, this is a grownup getaway.

PeppermintPatties.jpg
