Grandma's Zucchini Bread

This weekend, I got a gorgeous new Nikon DSLR camera for my birthday.  It is beyond awesome and I am so excited for you all to see the improvement in the pictures on the blog, though of course it will be a work in progress.  So, I took some time out from celebrating my birthday weekend in Toronto to test out the camera on some food.

Grandma Betty contributed this recipe to the cookbook my mom made for my sister and me.  I used freshly squeezed orange juice in mine instead of orange extract. We also didn't have any nuts in the house.  N might disagree because he is a crazy person that doesn't like nuts in baked goods, but I think the bread would have been even better if I had just gone to the store to get some nuts.  It was delicious though just the way it was!
