Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

I am absolutely in love with zucchini, but my four boys are begging for something else for dinner. My garden is going crazy producing and since no one else will take my zucchini (I tried putting it in front seats of cars at the grocery store and set off a few alarms) I've resorted to hiding it in everything from pancakes to cookies. Our favorite - zucchini pumpkin bread. I stole the recipe from Taste of Home, but of course I adapted it (I can't follow a recipe to save my life). Pumpkin Zucchini Bread Recipe
Ingredients
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup shredded zucchini
12 ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (it's a lot of chocolate, but we had to negate the health benefits of zucchini and pumpkin somehow)
Directions
In a bowl, combine eggs and sugar. Add pumpkin, butter and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Stir in zucchini and nuts. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until breads test done. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack. Yield: 2 loaves.

I also had to share about my darling friends' new book release. I love Jennifer and Sandra's suspense books and this romance was every bit as good! The heroine is such a sweetheart and is willing to sacrifice herself for her family. The hero is... dreamy. Loved him! Also, the setting - Hawaii - surf lessons, walks on the beach. Can we go there, please?

The only problem is the overconfident and much too good-looking Isaac Turnbow. Protecting identity has become second nature, but Isaac poses a threat to her heart.
Isaac Turnbow has an undeniable need to convince MacKenzie he’s someone she can trust and kiss, but when well-armed men arrive to disturb their budding relationship, he must prove to her and himself that he can protect her.
