Fall Kitchen Staples
Spending more time in the kitchen became one of my “must do” things after coming back from Sweden, especially after spending so much time in the warm, cozy homes of my loved ones and spending time with my cousins.
Their homes all had something special about them. You could tell that they all absolutely loved being at home, and that they all enjoyed spending time in their kitchens. The Scandinavian “hygge” lifestyle is no joke - it’s a real thing, and I try to embrace it as much as possible. If you’re not quite sure what a “hygge life” really means, to me, it means spending more time at home, living a slow, simple life, and appreciating the things you have, rather than searching for what you don’t. Also, it screams good, wholesome home cooked meals.
My twin cousins, who I hadn’t seen since they were 14 (which was waaaay too long ago) LOVE being in the kitchen and cooking - so much so that they cook for their girlfriends everyday. Needless to say they inspired me to spend more time at home, and start spending some quality time in the kitchen, cooking wholesome meals as much as possible. So that’s exactly what I’ve been doing! And to help make time in the kitchen as enjoyable as possible, here’s a look at some of my most loved items in my kitchen.
