Rise & Shine!

A couple years back, we ditched the coffee pods for fresh beans and haven't looked back! To get the freshest coffee in your cup, buy your favorite whole beans & grind them yourself with a handy dandy Coffee Grinder. Your water will be boiling in no time with a Gooseneck Kettle. When it comes to brewing, we go back and forth between our Pour-Over Coffee Maker and the classic French Press

A Quick Prep Talk!

Having all of your ingredients prepped and ready before you start cooking is a great way to keep from getting behind while you're actually cooking. Some of my favorite kitchen tools for prepping ingredients include the versatile  Ninja Master Prep Chopper or the Ninja Express Chopper. These food processors make chopping, mincing, dicing and pureeing a breeze. This pretty little Salad Spinner from OXO was a wedding gift that has been put to serious good use! And if you find yourself squeezing a lot of lemons, this Chef'n Fresh Force Citrus Juicer is for you! 

Get Organized!

Adding some extra shelf space to your kitchen cabinets can instantly double your storage space and help you stay organized. Try out some shelving like the Simple Housewares Expandable Shelf Organizer  or a sliding shelf like this two tier shelf for kitchen accessories or a single shelf that works great for pots and pans. And one of these Copco 3 Tier Shelves will keep all of your spices in sight!

Treat Yo-Self! 


Some kitchen essentials are worth a little splurge! Never underestimate the power of a good multi-purpose knife, like this Global Santoku Knife! And while the Instant Pot isn't the cheapest, you will get some major bang for your buck (seriously, it can do it all!). The eye catching Cast Iron Casserole Braiser Pan won't break the bank, like some other brands.
