These Are the Last Measuring Spoons I’ll Ever Need to Buy (And They’re Only $10)
When I give decluttering advice, I will always give you permission to get rid of duplicate kitchen tools. That’s because it’s a purchasing problem I always seem to fall victim to myself. I’ve had my fair share of kitchen tools that I don’t love, that I get new versions of, and that I keep all versions of for all the usual reasons: What if one breaks? What if I have people helping me in the kitchen and we both need it?

Among the shelves stocked with quirky snacks, irresistible cheesesdesserts Found in the produce section, this riced cauliflower wins us over with convenience. When it’s a race against the clock to get dinner on the table, this bag is way faster than blitzing a head of cauliflower in the food processor or shredding it on a box grater. It’s also a win for the uniform-sized “grains” that keep their shape without getting too soggy or watery during cooking.

Here’s Why I’m Actually Excited About Amazon’s New Alexa-Enabled Microwave
Last week, Amazon announced 14 new devices, including the next-generation Echo Dot, a smart plug (which can turn any appliance, like a coffee maker, into a smart device), and even an Alexa-enabled microwave. The $60 microwave — a product from the site’s private-label brand, AmazonBasics — elicited some interesting responses. The New York Times asked, “Hey, Alexa, Why Is Amazon Making a Microwave?” and Techcrunch called it outlandish.

Having clutter-free countertops is one of the easiest ways to fake a clean kitchen. I’m not advocating for never rolling up your sleeves and scrubbing down your cookspace.

Finally Ready to Get a Cast Iron Skillet? Get This One

The No-Commitment Way to Redecorate Your Kitchen
As much as I love the Sarah Sherman Sameuls and Shea McGees of the world, we don’t all have the budget (or even the homeownership, in my case) to splurge on a fantastic Cle or Granada Tiles kitchen backsplash. A girl can dream right? And save, of course. But until then, I’ve been toying with the idea of a stick-on solution. My kitchen is tiny, so it wouldn’t take much.

The One Thing I’ll Never Buy at Anthropologie Ever Again

That said, there is one thing I will never buy or even consider buying at Anthro ever again. It might come as a surprise, but the one thing I’ll never buy at Anthropologie again is their measuring cups. You know that whole fool-me-once saying? That’s exactly what happened here.

My Apartment Doesn’t Have a Dishwasher—This $5 Find is a Huge Help
There’s a reason I’ve been living in the same apartment for nearly five years. My studio apartment is in a great location, has plenty of storage for all my stuff (read: two closets!), and even boasts a cute outdoor space, which I admittedly don’t use as much as I should. I love my apartment, but of course, no home is perfect. My space has a bulky, built-in media center and a mini fridge instead of a full-sized one (really).

I Finally Bought This $20 Thing for My Kitchen and I Can’t Believe I Didn’t Get One Sooner
I stand at about five feet and three inches, and I’ve yet to live in a house with a kitchen designed for not-so-tall people. While I appreciate maximizing wall space with cabinets that reach the ceiling, over the years it has become incredibly annoying to drag a chair away from my kitchen table or climb onto the counter to get something down from the top shelf.

The One Thing That Finally Got Me Excited About the Instant Pot
It finally happened—I am obsessed with my Instant Pot. In the past four days I’ve made six dishes in it, and I can’t stop. I’m about to pressure cook everything in the house that isn’t nailed down. I admit that I was a late adopter to the Instant Pot. I got one a few months ago and made rice and lentil soup. Honestly, it just wasn’t super exciting (dear reader, is lentil soup ever that exciting?).

These Amazon Dining Room Buys Are Great for First Apartments–And Beyond
When it comes to buying furniture, some pieces stay with you for a year or two, and some for a lifetime. But when it comes to buying furniture on a budget, more can fall into the former camp.

The $10 Kitchen Gadget I Can’t Live Without
I love garlic, and I’m a big fan of Anthony Bourdain, but when I read that he called my beloved garlic press an abomination, my heart shattered into a million pieces. In his book Kitchen Confidential, Bourdain calls the misuse of garlic a crime. “Old garlic, burnt garlic, garlic cut too long ago, and garlic that has been tragically smashed through one of those abominations, the garlic press, are all disgusting,” he says. After reading this, first I felt embarrassment.

10 Beautiful (& Handmade!) Etsy Finds for Your Kitchen
Though we can totally see the appeal of mass-produced goods (easy to come by, usually pretty affordable), no space is really complete without a dash of the handmade. The character that an artisanal product lends to an interior far and beyond outdoes anything you can find at a big box store. Hence, why we love Etsy and all its indie makers, particularly those making goods for the kitchen.
