For us, summer means salad season – greens, pasta, cheese, fruits, veggies, pancetta – you name it and we’ve probably had it in a summer salad. Over and over again I find myself reaching for a Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl. They are so useful and there is really no end to their utility, just ask my kiddos – they have been known to use them as hats, bathtubs for toys, and of course, noise makers. We like them so much that we wanted to highlight how we use them on a daily basis.
It feels like we’ve been staying at home forever and we’ve been spending more time in the kitchen than ever before (sometimes cooking and mostly eating). Baking bread has become America’s new favorite pastime. But for us, it’s desserts. So many delicious desserts. Here’s a quick look at three of our new favorites.
We love Hôtel Silver. It’s made to last a lifetime – and we use our favorite pieces all the time. Many of the pieces we offer at Cassandra’s Kitchen are vintage finds from European hotels, restaurants, and ships. We often get asked about the best way to care for Hotel Silver and keep it shiny and looking good. Here’s our simple 'how to' with Twinkle Silver Polish.
One of the most popular items in our shop is our set of Mini Skillets – we use them to make Ina’s famous Skillet Brownies, which is probably why they are so loved! We found this set of 5-inch skillets to be so useful, from breakfast to dessert, so last year we added a 12-inch Cast Iron Skillet to the shop as well. Whenever we post about these skillets, we always get questions about how to properly clean them – so we wanted to give some pointers on how to care for them and we even added a few of our favorite skillet recipes for you to try!
