Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is a favorite in my house!

A new season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey has started.
I live in New Jersey and wasn’t asked to be part of the cast…which is, I know, I know, really unbelievable.
I think it might be because I am not Italian.
Or maybe because I don’t live in a ginormous house with lots of marble.
…or maybe because I have nice friends…
you know, not the kind of friends that pull out my “weave” or call me a “prostitution whore”.
MAYBE it’s because I have never use the word “matriarch” to describe myself or because I’ve never called my husband “juicy”.
Or it could be because I drive a minivan, not a Range Rover.
Possibly it’s because I don’t attend events that require me to “walk the runway” in feathered accessories
…or because I don’t have a lot of bedazzled clothing.
Maybe I wasn’t considered because I am not tan all year long, or have super long french manicured nails?
Should I start practicing the table flip?  or ask my husband to get a questionable job in “real estate development”…you think?
Any way you slice it I don’t think I am in the running for newest cast member.
Speaking of slicing…do you guys have a good kitchen knife?
Wait…maybe that’s why Bravo hasn’t called yet…because I can be trusted with a knife!
Yes, that’s totally why…because ya know, those Housewives are crazy y’all!
Anyways, you guys have GOT to try this knife
It’s the 7″ Santoku Knife from Ergo Chef.
The people over Ergo Chef have, in my opinion, developed the perfect go-to kitchen knife.
Their line of knives have the most ideal shape, angle and design for slicing, dicing and chopping.
The ergonomic handle fits perfect in your hand…it just FEELS good to hold.
I think every kitchen needs a good knife..and I wouldn’t say this unless I meant it..the Santoku knife has become a staple in my kitchen.
It’s like all sciencey and stuff.
Now onto the Zucchini bread…
Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread, actually

You’ll need some grated zucchini…

Mix up your batter and don’t forget the chocolate chips!

Bake and drizzle some glaze.  Glaze is good.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    Trish here…I follow and tweeted on twitter (that was a mouthful or handful I guess since I am typing). Shared on FB too. I love Teresa on the RHONJ…but all time fav is Tamara, no wait..Kim Z…no maybe I need a life. But seriously, from Bev Hills those ladies rock. We were in CA and ate at Villa Blanca and her hubby was there and was very very nice to all the "groupies"..of which I was one.

    Did it! And this post is sooo meant to be for me. I just grated like 4 zucchini yesterday and hadn't decided what to do with them yet AND I have a random 6 ounces of cream cheese in the fridge that needs to be used. Double batch? I think so.

    I shared on facebook!!

    I LOVE the Real Housewives shows (except Atlanta). They are like watching a train wreck and I find that my mouth starts to hang open at the atrocious things that come out of their mouths.

    I (@alexisadidier) follow you on twitter!!

    Darn…now I wish I would have bought zucchini the other day instead of summer squash. 🙁 That looks really good right now.

  8. Lori

    That Zucchini bread looks delicious! I shared the giveaway on fb, I'd love some new kitchen knives!

  9. FromTheHeartsOf

    OMG I love the Real Housewives, especially Jersey, boy what does that say about me. Oh well, I love Zucchini Bread even more, and chocolate even more than that lol. Do I redeem myself? 🙂

  10. Lori

    My husband and I (who will be married for 9 years in July) are still using the same hand-me-down knives I got from my grandma when I started grad school 12 YEARS AGO!!! We definitely need new knives (it's on our Christmas lists this year 🙂 )

  11. Karen

    I also have just one good knife to use in the kitchen. I'd love to expand that! And I love chocolate chips in banana bread, so I'm sure this recipe would be just as good.

  12. Lauren at Keep It Sweet

    I love the look of that zuccini bread! I need a new knife to give to my sister who doesn't have any good knives in her collection!

  13. Colleen

    Oh, pick me! I have basically one kitchen knife. I make it do for everything. And let me tell you, it's just not cutting it! (yes, pun was definitely intended.)

  14. Jennifurla

    This looks fantastic. I need new knives because my current set is about 9 years old and from Target…it is in a world of hurt these days.
