Vegan and delicious!

I have the best recipe for vegan(!) chocolate chip zucchini banana walnut bread. Find it here! Remember - the chocolate has to be vegan for this to be a truly vegan bread. I do believe (but don't quote me on this) that Ghirardelli's dark chocolate is vegan.

I use a whole grated medium zucchini. It works out to a bit more than a cup, but the bread still works well and you don't have any leftover zucchini sitting in your fridge. To be fair, I also add more than one half cup chocolate chips! When is more chocolate a bad thing?

Tomorrow, I'll be putting this excellent bread as well as some mint chocolate cupcakes in the OSU Anthropology Grad Lab. Bring a few quarters to throw in my donation box for Team in Training or donate on my super spiffy website here! Donations are tax deductible.


Welcome to the next installment of the Boulangerie St. Louis website! I've decided to merge two things I love, baking and running, into this one blog! I'll be baking small cakes, cookies, and cupcakes throughout training and selling them at the Ohio State University to help fundraise for my Team in Training event - the Cleveland Marathon next spring.

Team in Training raises money and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This society strives to find cures for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma. The Columbus, OH team is particularly lucky - the money we raise goes directly to the James Cancer Center on campus. Our money makes a difference right in our own backyard!

The fabulous coaches at TinT have suggested that I keep you all up-to-date on my training efforts. Team training starts in December, but I'm still out hitting the road several times every week. Yesterday I ran an easy, breezy 5k on the Olentangy Trail and tried to imagine what the last 5k of a marathon would feel like.
