We're slowly inching toward the holidays and I've started to think about what I may want this year. I really don't need anything, and we have an itsy house, so I can't fit much in here...but there are some things I want for my kitchen. Since doing the Whole30 and leading a paleo lifestyle, I've been doing lots and lots of cooking. I pretty much spend my days in the kitchen (besides the classroom, obviously!). I love, love, love the Cooking Guide Apron from Gent Supply Co; it has tons of cooking information on the apron, upside down, so you can hold up the apron and read it! Adorable. I also want the apron with built in oven mitts! I so need this, as I use my Williams Sonoma apron to hold hot dishes all the time (not safe). And, I've come to realize I really need a mandolin (kitchen gadget, not the instrument...in my house you have to always make this point), and I love any OXO gadget.
And, there's a few cookbooks I can't wait to get my hands on! Well Fed by Melissa Joulwan is on the top of my list; not only have I heard the book is awesome, but Kathleen Shannon designed it, and Melissa is my twitter friend and a really cool person! Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfillippo is a staple in every Paleo kitchen, and she has a ton of great advice about living a paleo lifestyle, not just delicious recipes. And last, but not least, another great book by Mr. Mark Bittman. I already own 3 of his cookbooks, but I've come to realize I need some practice in cooking basics an who better to turn to than the master himself? How to Cook Everything, The Basics will definitely improve my kitchen skills.
