So when I was a kid, one of my dad’s favorite desserts was rice pudding. His mom always made it when he was a kid and for him, it was like the ultimate comfort food. At first, I kind of found it horrifying, but as the years went by, I learned to love it, too,…

I think I snap new photos for this post every single summer and then never update it.  Promised myself I would actually do it this year!  This is hands down, the BEST double chocolate zucchini bread, totally packed with our favorite green summer veggie, extra chocolate chips, and the most amazing crackly top that everyone…
