Morning Glory Farm Cookbook Giveaway (Recipe – Zucchini Bread)

Do you remember the cookbook, Table Talk, that I blogged and blogged and blogged about last summer? I love that cookbook… it is still on the top of the list of favorite cookbooks I own. I love the Table Talk cookbook because it tells a great story, has beautiful photos and every single recipe I’ve tried has bee a hit. There hasn’t been one dud yet.

Recently, the publisher of Table Talk contacted me about another cookbook they were releasing called Morning Glory Farm. I think Table Talk may now have some competition as one of my favorite cookbooks! See, I believe that so many people can make a cookbook, but it takes a special kind of author to be able to weave personal stories in with the recipes they share. Morning Glory Farm is more than a collection of recipes. It is a tale of a husband and wife who, 30+ years ago, started a small farm. Through their hard work, dedication, ups and downs in the farming industry, and help from friends and family, they grew their farm  to be one of Martha’s Vineyards finest…where people will stand in line on any given day for a fresh loaf of zucchini bread or just picked corn. Their farmstand is bustling with customers daily, hoping to snatch up fresh produce or fruit pies. Their farm has become so popular that keeping items stocked in their retail store is a everyday challenge.

The Morning Glory Farm cookbook shares 70 recipes that are favorites of the residents of Martha’s Vineyard. The Morning Glory Farm cookbook is extra special because it separates each recipe out into the season that it would highlight the freshness of the produce available that season. For example, winter recipes include such gems as “Judy’s Simple Chicken Pot Pie” or “Baked Stuffed Winter Squash” while the summer recipes include recipes like “Chesca’s Roasted Corn Chowder” and “Fresh Green Bean Potato Salad”.

I have a huge amount of recipes from this cookbook bookmarked to try. The lovely folks at Morning Glory Farm thought that you should get in on the fun as well. I have an extra cookbook to give away to one lucky Dine & Dish reader. To qualify, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Make sure to include your email address in the form so that I know how to contact you. The random drawing will take place next Tuesday, so all entries need to be left by midnight CST on Monday, August 31st.

And, to tempt your tastebuds, I challenge you to try this Zucchini bread recipe and tell me if you have ever tasted better Zucchini bread. I am not sure what it is about it, but the light crust of this bread sets it apart from any other Zucchini bread I have tried!

Morning Glory Zucchini Bread (from the Morning Glory Farm cookbook)

2 to 2 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups sugar
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray two 9″ x 5″ bread pans with nonstick spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine zucchini, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
Beat sugar into mix until it is thoroughly creamed.
Once liquids and sugar are well mixed, add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until batter is well blended and even in texture. The batter should be smooth, outside the zucchini shreds. If it’s not, add a little juice from the zucchini.
Pour batter evenly into pans.
Bake for approximately 1 hour, or until bread is brown and springs back when gently pressed in the middle.

    Hey there – big fan of your blog and really enjoy following you on Twitter. I just made 4 dozen zucchini muffins last weekend and thought I’d give this recipe a try. I think its just as good as mine- I like the use of vegetable oil instead of butter, but I like mine with a little more spice in it hence my addition of nutmeg and a dash of cloves. But this is a very good recipe that I think I’ll hang onto :-)

    Oh – and I love to be entered to win this cookbook….though if I don’t win I think I’ll pick a copy up anyway – it looks delightful!

    I have always loved to cook but had low self-confidence when it came to baking– everything always burned, even when I watched it carefully! It turns out that I just had a screwy oven and have since discovered the absolute necessity of an oven thermometer! My baking has really start to vamp up and this zucchini bread is next on my list! Would love this cookbook!

    Conventional materials may tend to oxidize or deteriorate when exposed to temperature.

    I have always had a huge interest in alternative fuel solutions.
    However, high-performance autos used in competitive motor sports, or vehicles whose engines have to work hard to carry large weights or tow other vehicles have benefited from the installation of separate engine oil coolers.
