Living in my first apartment and newly married has proven itself wonderful but because of a limited budget and limited space my collection of kitchen items is modest. However this minimalist amount has not stopped me from creating delicious meals and experimenting with new recipes. Everything I post is made with the appliances and items listed below; therefore certain recipes and techniques that require an object I don’t own have allowed my creativity to spark and make do with what I have.

Electrical appliances include: microwave, coffee maker, rice cooker, and toaster. New additions: bread machine, blender and hand mixer (Christmas was kind to me.)

Bake/Cookware: 3 different sized rimmed baking sheets, 2 metal pizza pans, a ceramic pizza stone, 2 different sized glass baking pans, a glass bread pan, a non-stick pot, 4 skillets, 1 cooling rack,

Preparation items: grater, peeler, tea diffuser, pizza cutter, 4 plastic cutting boards, a whisk, knives, mixing bowls, and large spoons.

For photography I use a Canon Powershot SX10.
