Zucchini Slice

I have been making this Zucchini Slice for years. I’ve made it countless times, and often can make it from memory. It’s adaptable and can easily suit vegetables you have. It’s also perfect to make the day before and take into work for lunch. I prefer to serve it warm, but it can easily be…

Caramel Pecan Slice
