Welcome to my kitchen! This month I am giving you a sneak peek at my kitchen. This is part of a kitchen tour series that myself and some other bloggers are participating in.
Let’s start with the fact that I am a very messy cook and this is why I don’t usually take pictures of my food while I am cooking. So here is a rare pick of my kitchen semi-clean.
You’ll notice the counter with snacks and veggies and my dog Max in his favorite spot. He likes to be in prime position in case I drop anything while cooking. My kitchen is my favorite room in our house. It was the reason we bought our house since it has been remodeled recently.
A peak at a few of my favorite kitchen items.
First my T-fal deep fryer, this was a Christmas present last year from my husband and it is amazing. Oh how I missed fried chicken! I know deep frying isn’t very healthy so I only use it once or twice a month but when I do use it-deliciousness.
Next is my mini Cuisinart food processor. This is amazing for saving a little bit of time and work when chopping veggies for soups, breads, and pureeing. I personally love it for chopping onions which is not my favorite thing to do.
Then we have my meat thermometer. I have to admit I am one of those paranoid people when it comes to my meat being done. I personally recommend splurging for the digital Cuisinart one. They are about $15 and work a lot better then the classic ones.
Last is my favorite rolling pin, my husband gave this to me last year, what a perfect gift.
Here is a look into one of my cabinets.
As you can tell I eat a lot of cereal. I also bribe my toddler with fruit snacks when we go grocery shopping. Yup proud to share that.
I try to keep some color wonder markers and paper in my kitchen and some gluten free play dough to keep my little guy entertained while I am cooking.
We do have a few gluten filled items in my house for my husband’s lunches (like Cheez-it crackers) but we keep in a cabinet in a separate from all other foods and wrap in huge plastic bags to prevent any crumbs getting in the kitchen.
In the next few months some of my blogging friends are going to be posting tours of their kitchens! Please check them out and here is last month’s kitchen- Brianna from Flippin’ Delicious.
So that’s my family’s kitchen without the dirty dishes
