How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Chris-N-Kim's Zucchini Bread

As a high school gymnast, my coaches used to make this bread for special treats and roadtrips.

Mix in a large bowl:

3 cups flour
2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp baking powder

In a bowl, with an electric mixer:

1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 oil (or 1/2 cup applesauce with 1/4 cup oil)

Add 3 eggs, one at a time.
Add 3/4 can of a 15 oz can of crushed pineapple.  Do NOT drain.
Add 2 cups of grated zucchini.

Gradually add 2 tsp vanilla and flour mixture.  Add nuts, if desired.

Bake in greased pans or cups @ 350 for an hour (for loaves) or until done.   Cool.  Remove from pans.

Optional glaze:  1 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 3 tbsp apple juice.  Mix and pour over cool bread.
