Giveaway & Cranberry Orange Bread!
Have you ever noticed that once fall is in the air your eating habits change? Instead, you find yourself gravitating towards hot soups, breads, oven cooked savory dishes and baked desserts. Well, maybe not all of you, but definitely “yours truly.”
I love that it zests without getting the pith – this is because of the v-etched teeth
that just skim across the surface of the citrus. Plus, it has a measuring compartment so you don’t have to fuss with shoving it into a measuring spoon only to get 1/2 of the zest stuck to your fingers. Even better, when I went to clean it, I didn’t have to worry about shaving my fingers, which I found incredible. No Band-Aids needed!
The Better Zester can be found at Williams-Sonoma and online, and retails for $14.95. However, I have an extra one to GIVEAWAY to one very lucky person. All you have to do is post a comment telling me why you’d love to win the Better Zester, and:
