Morning Muffins

Ok guys, don’t laugh, but I am seriously loving these measuring cups!

They’re from Zyliss and have this nifty little spot for your thumb. It sounds strange but they’re really comfortable to grip!

We started using Zyliss tools when we were teaching kids cooking classes as they have these super kid-friendly knives. I reached out to the company to learn more and they sent me these measuring cups, and ever since then these are the only ones I use.

One thing the marketing representative at Zyliss said about their company that really made sense to me is that they sell tools, not gadgets. Kitchen tools are things that help you become more efficient in the kitchen or help you get the job done. And gadgets are more like toys and aren’t always necessary.

These measuring cups are definitely a tool in our kitchen… a very comfortable tool that is;)

We love a good muffin… especially one that includes, Cranberries, Chocolate Chips, Oatmeal, and little Flax….

Get your measuring cups out, it’s baking time!
