Hello friends! Amber here, and I’m so excited to start sharing my favorite tips and ideas for being a gracious hostess. From recipes to projects to gift ideas, I look forward to regularly sharing with you how to entertain at home and add a bit of Southern hospitality to your everyday!
It’s summer in the South, which means there is a roadside stand full of fresh vegetables around every corner! It’s the perfect time to enjoy the bounty and bake up some delicious zucchini bread to give as a gift to the hosts at your next social gathering, or simply have on hand for friends that stop by.
This moist and delicious zucchini bread recipe features a hint of cinnamon and some added walnuts for crunch. It slices perfectly and is always gone in less than a day at our house! Last week, our family picked a 14″ long zucchini from our garden that was enough to double this recipe and make four loaves. Two for us and two to give away!
For transportation and gifting, wrap a bit of parchment paper around a loaf and tie it with bakers twine. I also love the idea of pairing a loaf with a Fruitful Summer Encouragement Postcard to delight someone special with!

So glad to hear this Emily! Let me know how it turns out! :)
I finally got around to trying this recipe and Amber it was so delicious!!! It’s a dense bread but was still very tasty with a crispy crust. I especially enjoyed it with some peanut butter smeared on top! Bring on more recipes to try.
Hooray Emily! So great to hear that you had the results you did. I’ve never tried peanut butter with it, but definitely going to now! Excited to share more recipes with you too in the coming months!
