The Perfect Excuse to Acquire More Kitchen Treasures

A major milestone birthday is the perfect excuse to add to my kitchen collection and I didn’t mind taking full advantage of the opportunity this year.

I’d rather have a new kitchen appliance than jewelry. I’m so excited with my choices I just had to share them with you!

First, the popular “Instant Pot.” A few friends and family members already have some version of this appliance and everyone is thrilled with what they can do with it. It’s the appliance to have right now, so I’d love to hear any great stories you have to share about using yours.

This Instant Pot is a 6-in-1 and offers a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Sauté, Steamer and Warmer, with a food grade stainless steel cooking pot. It’s also available in a 7-in-1 or 8-in-1 appliance.

Finally, I’ve saved the best for last. As my collection of food photography props has grown over the last few years, I’ve found myself wasting time searching different areas of my kitchen and other parts of my house every time I do a photo shoot to find just the right props. It really does interfere with the creative flow when I can’t find what I had in my mind.

Because of that, I’ve been imagining a cabinet with glass doors to hold my props, making them easily accessible to choose from during a photo session and that’s exactly what my husband gave me for my birthday. My little brother found the cabinet at IKEA and picked it up and put it together for us.

My 65th birthday was a major milestone for sure and I want to thank my family and friends for making it a special one!
