Measure Away: A Giveaway!

So you know that I like to write about stuff that I find neat or very useful, and I had said that I would do a giveaway after my 100th follower. Well, that happened a while back, and I have racked my brain for a giveaway-worthy item! Finally, it came to me while I was grabbing one of my most used kitchen tools the other day – my measuring cups.

These are not just any old measuring cups. These are special measuring cups because they measure ODD amounts.

Meet Williams-Sonoma’s All-Clad Odd-Measure cups and spoons.

I use these cups almost daily. Not a necessity, but I sure do like ‘em! The cups measure 1 1/2 cups, 3/4 cup and 2/3 cup. The spoons measure 2 tsp, 1 1/2 tbsp, and 2 tbsp. I bought these years ago with a gift certificate from my friend, and I have loved them from day one. I actually have a 2 cup as well, but for some reason that set is not made anymore.

So I’m going to give these measuring cups away, and I’m going to throw in a bottle of honey from our watermelon bees!

You can enter the giveaway like this:

  1. Comment on this post. Any old comment will do!
  2. Be a blog follower of Across the Branch, and leave me another comment to tell me.
  3. Post about my giveaway on your blog or facebook (or both, but only one entry please), and leave me another comment to tell me that too!

The giveaway ends Monday, August 22 at 7pm est. Happy weekend!

I follow your blog, and actually refer to it for recipes and cooking tricks. One I've yet to try is that chicken spice you like from the Mexican food section... my favorite, strawberry cake, of course! :)

Eureka!! How fantastic! I have never though about odd size measuring cups! I always need 1 1/2 cups. This would make measuring one step quicker!
