Little Things: From the Kitchen

When I was growing up the kitchen was the hub in our household. On any given day you'd find 3 or 4 of us huddled around the center island making snacks and catching up. To this day, while our kitchen is quite petite, it's still where we spend most of our time cooking and congregating. I have a measly set of pots and pans (with limited space I have pared it down to the necessities) but when it comes to gadgets, sauces, spices, and tools I'll cram in as much as I can! Here are a few of my all time favorites... 

{W├╝sthof 7" Santoku Knife - the only one I ever need}

{Squeeze Bottle - makes pouring syrup easy for little hands}

{Maldon Sea Salt - light and flaky with just the right amount of crunch}

{Joseph Scoop Colander - perfect for straining small portions}


{Oxo Good Grips Tongs - used daily for everything from tossing salad to flipping steaks}


{Peter Luger Steak Sauce - it's almost tough for me to enjoy steak without it}

{Chef'n Salad Dressing Mixer - I alway have homemade dressing on hand for impromptu requests}
