I've only been there once for a wedding reception years ago,
it was magnificent and the food was awesome.

Using a cookie scoop, fill muffin pans lined with muffin papers with batter up to 2/3 full. Bake muffins in a pre-heated 350 degrees oven for 18-20 minutes or til tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Makes 24 muffins.
Can also use orange sugar crystals for festive looks.
Zucchini Loaf Bread with Walnuts and Chocolate Chips
I double the recipe above to make 5-4"x 8" loaves.
Spray pans with cooking spray first then equally divide the batter into prepared pans.
Bake in a pre-heated 350 degrees oven for 1 hour.

Tip from MaMely:
Do not grate zucchini in advance, otherwise it will become watery.
Grate it just before combining with the other ingredients.
