Product Review: CSN Grain and Nut Grinder

by heather
 Recently CSN Store contacted me to do a product review. They provide a gift certificate, I choose an item and review it here on my blog.

(Yes, I know not my most brilliant move.) It wasn't long before said glass of water was knocked onto my laptop (and no I can't even blame the kids.)
