Out with the old…In with the Yellow

unnamedIf you are like me, you have been in clean out mode for the New Year and it is the best feeling!  I get this amazing energy when I start cleaning out the closets, drawers and cabinets, but after my clean out, my next favorite thing to do is to refresh some of my must haves.  This year, I am excited to vamp up my kitchen with some fresh yellow items that will inspire me to cook and spend more time in the kitchen.

My Favorite Yellows…
1. Colander-because everyone needs one….so you might as well make it a cute one!
2. Bubble Water Bottle-you can never drink enough
3.Storage Containers-leftovers always taste better in fun and fresh containers!
4. Simplified Recipe Binder-gets those recipes organized and start your ovens
5.Yellow Mug-who doesn’t love a perfect cup of coffee or tea on a cold morning
6.Egg Crate-just because it is so cute!  ink-foods_signature  

Thanksgiving Table Design….

Be Thankful

15 days away….are you ready to decorate your Thanksgiving table?  In our family we rotate homes for the holidays and this year, I get to host everyone for Thanksgiving and I am so excited about it.  Not only is Thanksgiving my favorite holiday, I love all the decorations that go along with it.  The menu is really important to me, but as important is how my table is going to look because we tend to spend the entire day around the table.  The “I’m Thankful For…” placemat is one of my favorites and it is a DIY project, so you can design it to coordinate with your table design.  For the last 7-8 years we have had a tradition of “I’m Thankful For…” round table with the family, we all have so much to be thankful for and this is our way to let the family share our blessings with each other.   This placemat will be such a great addition to our table so that we can write our thoughts down before sharing them with everyone.   Here are some of my other favorites for this year….what will your Thanksgiving table look like?

Have fun with your Thanksgiving table…this is where your family traditions and memories happen.  Here are some beautiful tablescapes of all different styles.

Life of Pie…Baking Essentials

Life of Pie

What would life be without pie? …I can’t even think about it.  Now that we are deep into fall and pumpkin, apples and all the spices are in the air, it is time to start thinking about holiday baking and all the essentials you will need!  These items are my favorite pie baking tools that allow me to make the perfect pie + a special taste tester (my husbands favorite part).  Start your shopping now and keep your holidays calm and your kitchen smelling like fall.  These are also great gift items for your favorite baker in the family!
