This week, I want to share a couple of my new favorites. One is a wonderful measuring spoon set from Kitchen Zest and the other is a set of beautiful, light-weight bamboo cutting boards from Just Bamboo.
Kitchen Zest Measuring Spoon Set:
A good set of measuring spoons is an essential both for cooking and for portion control. I recently upgraded my old set to this set from Kitchen Zest. I love these attractive and practical measuring spoons.
The set contains all the standard sizes for a set of kitchen spoons and each spoon is clearly labelled with metric measures and in teaspoon and tablespoons (and fractions of). While this is in the descriptions, I will mention it just in case. The measures include: Includes 1 tablespoon, 1/2 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon and 1/4 tablespoon. The measures are engraved on each spoon.
The handle is silicone so you can hold the spoon when measuring hot or cold ingredients (this is an upgrade over my old set). It comes in green or black, I chose the black handled set.
The spoons are held together by a large removable ring — like a key ring. I like this as I have been able to hang them up on my utensil organizer. This allows easy access to the spoons so I am not searching a full kitchen drawer for the spoon that I need.
All in all, I am very satisfied with this set of measuring spoons. They do exactly what I need with the added benefit of the comfortable silicone handle. I find them easy to use, clean and store. They seem well made and I expect to be using them for a long time.

Just Bamboo Cutting Board Set:
If you read my recipe posts, you just may have seen this set of bamboo cutting boards in the back ground. They have a nice multi-tone woody look of the bamboo grain. I like the appearance and have been using them for food and recipe photographs on my blog and Instagram accounts.
When I received the set, I conditioned the boards with coconut oil and have been using them for a couple of weeks (I use coconut oil like the father on My Big Fat Greek Wedding uses Windex!). I replaced my previous older cutting boards with these attractive, light weight boards.
They are thinner than my previous cutting boards, I am not sure whether that is a pro or con long-term as they already started to warp a little. If I find they wear out faster than expected I will update. But for now I am very happy with the boards and consider them a good value at their current retail price. I would prefer that the largest board be slightly larger–the one board I kept was my biggest. However, I can’t fault the seller as the board sizes are listed in the description.
These are great for smaller prep work tasks like chopping vegetables, cheese, fruit and herbs. They work well for 90% of my chopping. They are light weight and sleek size make them easy to store.
