Fizzy Freckled lemonade

Well, hello there.  It’s been awhile hasn’t it?  Life seems to be full to the brim with busy boys and their shenanigans these days.  Summer is full throttle around here and summer, of course, calls for lemonade.  I adore lemonade.  The real stuff, that is.  I also love me a nice fizzy beverage on a hot day.  Throw a few macerated strawberries in there and we’re practically having a party.

The Microplane

Best tool ever.

Do you have a Microplane?  If not, go get one.  You’ll thank me later, I promise!

If you have ever struggled to zest a lemon on a box grater, you simply must try the Microplane.  Though it may be nothing more than a glorified carpenter’s rasp with a handle, it has revolutionized the way I zest citrus and grate ginger.  Just imagine–no more picking that precious zest or stringy ginger from a grating board!

But that’s not all!  Not only does the Microplane work magic on your lemons and ginger, it also works beautifully on hard cheeses, chocolate, and whole spices.  Whether you’re seeking a fine grating of Parmigiano for your panko crust, a beautiful garnish of shaved chocolate, or a fragrant dusting of nutmeg on your latte, the Microplane does it with ease.

There’s more!
