Our Giveaway Winner Shares Her Orange Recipes!

A while back we hosted a giveaway with Breville and the lucky winner received a new juicer and fresh oranges and citrus from us, heres what Judy the winner had to say:

Did the oranges arrive in good condition ?

One of the first things I noticed when I opened the box of oranges was the smell. I'm not used to the smell of fresh oranges and it reminded me of when I was a little girl. The oranges arrived in great condition.

Did you like the taste?

Juicy! Juicy! Juicy!  I loved it that I was drinking the orange.  I certainly wasn't dried up at all and the taste was delicious. 

How easy was the juicer to use and do you like the design?

I love the design of the juicer. It looks really pretty and it was easy to use.
What are you planning on making with the oranges anything creative !

On Mother's Day my mother made Belgian waffles and we made orange butter.
It was yummy and it made Mother's Day a little more special.

Orange Butter
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tsp grated orange peel


Combine butter, orange juice, and orange peel; blend well.

After my daughter's 1st year birthday party, we had vanilla ice cream left over and we combined OJ with ice cream.  

Very good!
