In Need of a Zester...

Mother's Day is coming up, right? Do you hear me Steve??? I need a zester. And then I would not have near the stress in making these types of recipes. Granted, Steve, if you've already bought me some jewelry, I will get my own zester.

Why do I need a zester? Because I have been zesting with my grater now for the last year. PW keeps talking about a "microplane zester" and I am sitting here with my grater--green with envy. I am going to have to find me one of those. That, or quit making recipes that require zest. And that wouldn't be fun!

This morning I was looking for a new muffin recipe to try and Orange Mini-Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze is one I have been wanting to try. Let me tell you all, the batter was delicious. I could not quit licking my fingers--and that is big for me because there are raw eggs in that batter. Gag me!

I had 4 grumpies sitting at the bar watching me zest and whip up Orange Mini-Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze as they longingly looked at the cereal boxes. Not this morning baby critics!! Mommy is making Orange Mini-Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze and you WILL try them. And hopefully WILL like them.

Well not the case for the youngest two. I missed my opportunity to get a picture of their faces. I am going to attribute their dislike to immature taste buds. Because Orange Mini-Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze were really good and the older two thought they were good. Especially after the shock of citrus flavor that surprised them all. Maybe that is what did it to the younger two. Who knows. But those cereal boxes they were longingly looking at? Quickly became their breakfast this morning.

Will I make Orange Mini-Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze again? I think they'd be a great addition to a brunch menu. Especially if you are having different types of muffins. They are an interesting citrus flavor that are soaked with a yummy brown sugar glaze. Best served warm, although these leftovers are good as well.

Worth making for my children for breakfast? Maybe with a microplane zester and cereal on the side...
