My Kitchen “Stuff”

Back in December of 2008, I packed up my house of stuff and the majority of it has been sitting in storage ever since.  This past week, I finally got all the boxes labeled “kitchen” and a few others that weren’t labeled at all, out of storage and into my new home.  I haven’t been able to go through all of them yet, but thus far have at least found a lot of my baking gear (YAY!) and some things that I am planning on giving over to a good friend of mine – Geek Girl.  Some of it will go to Goodwill for a donation – how many dishes and mugs do one household really need?

One item that I was super stoked to find is my garlic press.  While it’s not exactly that hard to mince or chop garlic, I’m technically lazy.  *smile*  And I finally have all my measuring cups and spoons, which makes baking more easier.  Yeah, this house had two men living in it but lacking quite a bit on cooking/baking gear that I think every house should have.

Of course, I also found my ‘man’ cake pan … which I have no idea if it’ll ever get used again.  There’s also the ‘winnie-the-pooh’ pan, which will probably never get used again either.  I think I see donations there.  I am, however, keeping the mini teddy bear cake pan.  Good for single serve cakes and other treats.

One thing I haven’t found yet and hope I will in the last few remaining boxes is my cheesecake pan.  While I don’t bake them often, I can make a mean one and I have a great recipe for a champagne-raspberry sauce to go with it.  And I’ve been craving it lately!

  1. Definitely opening up my kitchen for anything you want to send/bring/whatever. Since the Great Purge of 2011, I’ve still got some stuff that was mine and the ex’s but only stuff that I don’t associate with him specifically or with the wedding, and the rest has been replaced, down to silverware, which I recently bought. Most of my birthdays and Christmases lately have been taken up with asking for cookware, and I’m even thinking of hitting up the family for a professional set of non-stick pots and pans that are super durable (something you’d get from Bed Bath and Beyond or Kitchen Collections…nothing Wally World cheap) for graduation this year. I’m looking at replacing my knives, too, which are still excellent, but I can pass mine on to Kathy (because our aunt’s knives suck) and get a block of good knives from Walmart for not too bad a price.

    I would LOVE cheesecake recipes, esp the sauce you just mentioned. I think there’s a call for that recipe and pictures of it to go up on here at some point. I’m going to make cheesecake soon, just not sure what kind. One of the new gaming boys is allergic to strawberries, pineapple and mangoes, I think, but I was also thinking of a cheesecake with Nutella. Just not sure yet. 🙂

    1. I’ve got a block of knives that are no longer needed. Kathy and Aunt Norma are welcome to them – I’ll even make sure they’re sharpened. 🙂

      Depending on how much stuff I have for you, will depend on whether I ship it down or just bring it down myself. Or may do both!
