Let me tell you some of the things I’ve learned, and thought interesting about the Culinary Corner bamboo cutting boards.

After I got past how gorgeous they look, I was thrilled to find out that they are made of the highest quality bamboo. These cutting boards are naturally antibacterial/antimicrobial, FDA grade, BPA and toxin free.

Cool fact: Bamboo is not a tree it’s actually a fast growing grass, by fast I’m talking several inches a day. It is ready to be harvested in 3 years so that make is a very green friendly and renewable wood source.

Bamboo cutting boards are also naturally dense making them resistant to scratches, nicks and accidental scarring, which can lead to microscopic pockets where bacteria can form and grow. These cutting boards are also resistant to staining from acidic foods such as fruits and vegetables.

It’s a beautiful cutting board, on one side there are 7.5″, 8.5″ and 9.5-inch circles for easy pie making, and 5″ circle for making tarts. I love that it’s large enough to roll out pie dough.
IMG_2240Also branded on the same side is a 16″ ruler along the top, and a 10″ ruler along the side for easy ingredient measuring. It’s amazing how they thought of everything.

The flip side is smooth and perfect for dicing, slicing, and cutting. This smoother side also has a drip groove on all 4 sides to prevent any liquid from dripping off the board. I used to have to put a paper towel or cloth underneath my old cutting board to catch the juices. Now the drip groove catches them, I love it!

IMG_2223If you are interested in purchasing the bamboo cutting board or for more information you can find Culinary Corner on Amazon. They are offering a $5 OFF coupon code (VYFB-94RM6T-S59UUS) for you so you can have your own bamboo cutting board at an even more fabulous price! I love a great deal! <3

Now on to my Simple Creamy Veggie Pasta Salad recipe.

IMG_2213You’ll need:
8 ounces small pasta shells cooked
1 cup diced zucchini
2 tomatoes chopped
4 green onions thinly sliced
1/2 cup small black olives sliced in half
1/3 cup sliced mild jalapenos
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or garlic seasoning
salt and pepper
1 cup ranch dressing, I made my own, kind of… using ranch powder and mayonnaise but you can use a bottled dressing

Cook your pasta according to the directions on the box. Drain and set aside to cool.

Chop all the vegetables. The bamboo cutting board was a very nice surface to work on, very smooth. My knife didn’t make any marks on the surface either. It cleaned up beautifully.

In a small bowl combine the ranch dressing, cayenne pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper with a whisk.
Pour over the pasta and veggies and gently combine until everything is evenly coated. Chill for a few hours or overnight is even better.
