See What I Got in My Kitchen

I want to share some cool appliances and tools that I use in my kitchen.

This page will be updated regularly so be sure to come back and look.

First I wanna start with my Keurig Coffeemaker since that is how I start my day

( Here is a site all dedicated to Keurig Coffee Makers )

I love how I can make MY favorite coffee (or hot cocoa) and have my hubby make his. I
like espresso (cappuccino) and he likes his really dark roasted, really acid and I don’t!!
It is great when we have company too, especially after dinners when everyone can have their
favorite, and at that time of the day the decaf’s are really popular 🙂




My next favorite is my KitchenAid Mixer and I DO have the “Empire Red” one and I love it 🙂

I will admit that I bought a new one when I saw that color!! I know it is silly, but sometime
you just have to combine functionality and appearance 😉

These are a Few of my Favorite Things

Sometimes I come across things that I really like. It can be appliances, food, cooks or anything that makes my life easier or more pleasant…I will share them here and update as soon as I find something.

First I want to share this with you that I got as a Christmas present and we have been using it a lot this winter:

It is called Starry Night Fire Dome!! Isn’t that cool 🙂

Starry Night FireDome

We have spent lots of evening around this fire pit making s’mores, “poking around” in the fire or just watching the flames

while drinking hot cocoa. It was a great Christmas gift and the light that is spreads is beautiful.

If you want to get one -or just take a closer look at it- you can find it HERE

Homemade Hoisin Sauce Recipe

I am so glad when I find I can make a homemade version of a commercial product

Homemade Hoisin Sauce Homemade Hoisin Sauce RecipeRecipe

(this is also Chinese barbecue sauce)

4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons natural, crunchy peanut butter (you can use black bean paste too, but I like the crunchy in the peanuts 🙂
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar (you can get away with white vinegar if you don’t have rice wine vinegar)
1 tablespoon honey or molasses or brown sugar
2 teaspoons sesame oil (a bit more if you really enjoy the sesame flavor)
1 teaspoons crushed red chili/ red chili paste
1 clove minced garlic

Put everything in a blender and give it a quick twirl. The sauce will come out really smooth with little crunchy peanut bits still
in it.
