What I’m Loving Right Now

In the interest of doing two of my very favorite things–making lists and excitedly telling others about the latest inanimate objects with which I am obsessed, eyes wide and hands flapping–I bring you a new series of posts from the POC kitchen called “What I’m Loving Right Now”**. I hope you’ll not only comment on my crazed collection of finery, but also share what little baubles and gadgets are making your life in the kitchen easier/more efficient/manically, inexplicably happier. Because we’re friends, and because we all need another reason to have that online shopping mouse-clicking finger get all itchy. You’re welcome.

A few of you sent love letters to this completely adorable cake tester after it appeared in the post about this completely delicious recipe. And I don’t blame you. It’s just so sweet I could pass out. Plus, I no longer have to deal with fumbling for a toothpick, spilling half of them on the floor in the process and then two days later getting stabbed in the foot with the one blasted toothpick that I missed during the curse-filled cleanup. I got this tester from Crate and Barrel on a whim, when I needed to spend a wee bit more to get free shipping on an order. Because I’m a sucker. But now I’m a sucker with a glee-inducing cake tester! La-la-la! Win!

I also have to shout out these awesome cutters from Fox Run. I bought them from one of my favorite shops because I was after a set of scalloped cutters for dainty roll-out cookies like shortbreads and these little gems. And that’s how I used them for a couple weeks until I realized that when you flip them over they are round cutters too! I never said I was quick on the uptake, people. So all of a sudden I had two different sets of cutters and would no longer have to use an old tuna can to cut out biscuits. What a great day that was! Pretend you understand the thrill, won’t you?

What little things are you loving right now?

**To the skeptics: I am in no way, shape or form associated with any of these companies or products. If I were, you best believe I’d make that abundantly clear. These are items from my own personal collection of stuff that I regularly use and love.

  • Pam Pan Spray with Flour. NOTHING sticks to the pans with this spray! It's not an equipment.. but a must have for me.

  • NB–You know, that's one thing I've always seen and heard about and never bought. Must fix this.

  • Ok I just love the cake tester. I have to get one. I use bamboo kabob skewers you find in the supermarket but this is just so much prettier

  • Cutest cake tester ever! I always end up using a paring knife…
    One of my favorite kitchen tools is a rice paddle–it makes fluffing and serving rice so much easier, and it's bright yellow and cute so I love it:)

  • I am in love with anthropologie's aprons! But who in the right mind isn't right? AHHH. it's like apron couture.

  • Lucie–And now I have an urge to go find a little yellow rice paddle.

    Vickys–I covet Anthro aprons. Love, love, love. Will be sharing a few of my favorites soon!

  • Late on this, but speaking of Anthropologie, I picked up a glass measuring jar from that website a few months ago. Sadly it's no longer available, but it lives on my counter. I use it constantly. There are marks for measuring flour and rice by ounce and cup, conversions at an eyeball, and it's just a pretty shade of green. It looks like an antique piece.

  • Rae–I love it!

  • Great factors…I would be aware that as somebody who really doesn’t comment to blogs much (the truth is, this may be my first put up), I don’t think the time period “lurker” could be very flattering to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault in any respect, but perhaps the blogosphere might come up with a greater, non-creepy identify for the 90% of us that get pleasure from reading the posts.

  • I would like to thanks for the efforts you will have made in penning this article. I'm hoping the same greatest work from you sooner or later as well. Actually your artistic writing abilities has inspired me to start my own BlogEngine blog now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a wonderful instance of it.
