Zak! Designs Moso #Giveaway!

IMG_0304For years, Zak Designs has been helping consumers become more environmentally responsible by providing reusable alternatives to disposable items as well as launching innovative eco-friendly products. With the release of its new Moso line of dinnerware and serveware, Zak is giving its consumers one more way to be fashionably green.

The Moso line from Zak Designs is made through an innovative process that combines 75 percent bamboo fiber of the giant moso bamboo plants with wheat starch. Their new Moso line durable enough to be used for years, yet is also 100 percent biodegradable! It also carries all the environmentally friendly benefits of bamboo. However, these dishes do require handwashing.

The Moso line has everything you could need. It includes a dinner plate and bowl as well as a divided plate and divided bowl while the serveware includes a 14” serve tray and a 3-piece nested bowl set. All of the pieces in the line are available in either red, orange, kiwi, or azure.

I love this brand new line. The colors are enticing. However, best of all, this stuff is good. My kids have put their plates and bowls to the test. They aren’t broken, and they aren’t wrecked. I also absolutely love that they are BPA free. You don’t have to worry about anything leaching into your food when you use the Moso line.

This Zak! Designs Moso line is a must have in your kitchen (especially if you have kids!). I have arranged for one lucky winner to win a 4pc. place setting (4 regular plates and 4 regular bowls). Here’s what you need to do:

You can seriously make pound cake now in about 10 minutes, and that’s including preheating! It took me longer to find the ingredients in my pantry than it did to make a pound cake!

Seriously! Literally, you mix the ingredients together, add to the Holstein Housewares Pound Cake Maker, wait about 8-10 minutes and done! I frosted and decorated after it cooled off. I’m including the pound cake recipe I used, because I never knew I could make chocolate pound cake! Also, let me just say, yum.
