Recipes you can read made easy while cooking in the kitchen - from Etsy! When creating a recipe in the kitchen a device to hold a phone or tablet can be a so helpful. In the past few years there have been a few options but they all seem a bit bulky.

Helpful Kitchen hints for 2017 - Clean Slate The New Year is a great time to start a “Clean Slate” especially in the kitchen. My first plan of attack is to go from cabinet to cabinet and empty everything out. I usually find expired snacks and drinking glasses that never get used anymore or even glasses that are chipped. I toss the chipped glasses and old snacks then donate anything I don’t use or need. This always gets me in the right direction of going clutter free and organized for the New Year.
