Happy Monday? Monday can be happy right? ;) I hope you all had a great weekend…I spent a busy weekend in the kitchen cooking up new posts and couldn’t be happier!
I’ve got a serious case of spring fever so I’ve busted out some great spring recipes and even one for Easter. I actually can’t wait to share my recipe for Easter…it’s one of the best side dishes in the whole wide world. It really is. So stay tuned.
But for today, I thought it would be fun to do a post that isn’t a recipe. Sometimes it’s nice to step away from the usual – I find it refreshing. So today, I’m sharing some of my favourite kitchen items! I originally shared these with Shauna over at Satori Design for Living.
It couldn’t be my favourite kitchen items list without naming a few of my favourite cookbooks! These four books are my most loved cookbooks of all time: The Joy of Cooking, Any Best of Bridge book, Looneyspoons and Chef at Home. I refer to them all the time and love them all! For me, these books are must haves!
Now there are all sorts of kitchen gadgets out there, but these are the ones that get used the most in my kitchen. I seriously would be lost without them. I use my Pampered Chef knife every day, it’s really the best! And the bag clips, these are the greatest invention ever (these are from Ikea). I also can’t live without my pan scraper, silicone spatula and my pretty measuring cups!
You may recognize some of these dishes from my blog posts. They are a recent addition to my kitchen (I bought the entire set of this ceramic bake ware from Superstore). I love them SO much. They bake everything beautifully, and they look fabulous in my blog food photos! I use these dishes everyday…they make an everyday meal look gorgeous! My favourite way to use these dishes is to roast vegetables, like this butternut squash.
I only just discovered how amazing heavy skillets are. They’re so versatile! I grill, saute, broil and bake with them…but what I love the most about them is that I can start a dish off on the stove and transfer it directly to the oven…it saves time and dirty dishes! Can’t beat that! I used these dishes recently for my Apple Baked Dutch Baby.
