2nd Anniversary giveaway week: A Microplane Zester!

***Update: #6, Karol, is the lucky winner! Now you can zest that lemon like a pro! Look for more information via email from me.  Congratulations! ~Lyndi ***

Today is my blog’s 2nd birthday and that means it is time to kick-off the 2nd annual week of anniversary giveaways!  

Don’t you just LOVE this time of year?

Today’s special foodie gadget giveaway is a favorite of mine: a classic Microplane hard cheese grater/zester!  This gem of a gadget can be used for grating or zesting of chocolate, hard cheeses, citrus zest, coconut, ginger and garlic.  I use mine everyday on my parmesan block.  

I believe that any foodie’s life is not complete without one! 


A lucky someone will be getting his or her VERY OWN Microplane!   

Contest ends next Wednesday, September 7th at midnight (CDT).  I will pick a winner via randomizer.
