 KitchenAid Collection at Best Buy

Have you ever walked into the kitchen only to find yourself wishing it was different? I think we all, at one point or another, wish for an amazing kitchen that looks like it came out of a movie. Or a cooking show. Or your best friend’s cousin’s brother’s kitchen. Sometimes anything seems better than what it is.

The apartment we just move into has a decent kitchen, but definitely outdated. The stove looks like it’s straight out of 1972 while the refrigerator is blah at best. I can’t help but wonder what it would be like with some of the awesome KitchenAid appliances from Best Buy.

What’s your favorite room in your home? The bedroom? Maybe the living room? For me it’s the kitchen. That’s where I do some of my best work and I guess you can say it’s where the magic happens. I love to cook and bake, whether I’m creating a new recipe or following a tried and true one. I get excited over refrigerator magnets and new dish towels. Heck, I even enjoy hand washing the dishes! There isn’t much I don’t love about being in the kitchen which is why I’m always hunting for ways to spruce it up a bit.

I daydream often about what my dream kitchen would look like and include. It changes often but a few things stay the same: an island big enough to seat four, cabinets for days, and appliances that meet my demands. What would your dream kitchen look like?

I do a lot of window shopping when it comes to major home purchases like appliances. With refrigerators and cooking surfaces always advancing it’s hard not to fall in love over and over again. My latest love interests come from KitchenAid and their new lines of ranges and refrigerators. I’m a huge KitchenAid fan with their stand mixers being my long-time BFF.

Did you know KitchenAid offers large kitchen appliances?

For starters, there’s their new, all new Slide-in Ranges. They fit the traditional freestanding cut-out for a seamless look that provides exceptional cooking and baking. The new Slide-In Downdraft Range comes in Electric and Dual Fuel for more ways to cook. These include Even-Heat™ Technology which means flawless results in their wall ovens and ranges.

More features of these drool-worthy ranges include exclusive Steam Rack and Steam Bake cooking options that are designed for amazing performance. Also, a Baking Drawer for cooking flexibility to keep dishes warm, slow cook, or simply bake at a different temperature than the main oven cavity.

That will come in handy for holiday gatherings for sure!

Jazz Up Your Kitchen with Hen House Linens

Products below were received for editorial consideration – all opinions remain my own.

Are you getting bored with your kitchen? Do you need a quick and easy way to spruce it up without going overboard or investing a ton of time and money? Sometimes all it takes is new kitchen linens to take that room from drab to fab. Hen House Linens has a huge selection of gorgeous household linens that come in a variety of colors and patterns. I think that is what makes them so great; regardless of your style preference you’re sure to find something you love.

We received the Filigree Claret cocktail napkins and a latticework aubergine potholder and they are perfect for warming up your kitchen during the cold winter.

The cocktail napkins are generously sized which makes them great for any situation – parties or dinner. They are sold in sets of six and come tied with a saddle-stitched ribbon. If you’re hosting a get together or just like the idea of hosting then these are a must have. With the abundance of patterns mixing them up is going to be a blast! Especially if you have a quirky side like I do. I’m all about mixing and matching patterns and it’s totally doable with Hen House Linens.

Their potholders are great as well.

Whenever I’m reaching into the oven I have it on hand to help keep my hands protected. Then I use it to keep my table protected! The potholders are lined with heat resistant padding so you won’t burn yourself when taking anything out of the oven. That’s crucial for me; I can’t tell you how many blisters I’ve had because a potholder has failed me. Thankfully I have yet to even feel the heat through this potholder.

I’m extremely happy with everything I have seen from Hen House Linens. Browsing around the Hen House Linens website left me yearning for pretty much everything I saw. They are a great resource for your entertaining needs as well as sprucing up your home. They offer more than just kitchen linens so be sure to browse around.

HABA Silicone Molds Review

Holiday baking is a big thing, regardless of skill or really desire. I do not know anyone that doesn’t break out the recipe box at least once during the holidays. I think it is an unspoken fact that desserts baked in fun shapes are better than those cut into boring squares. HABA makes baking exceptionally fun with their Silicone molds. We received 2 of these molds for review and we couldn’t be happier.

Imagine cute Princess inspired brownies or fun Safari themed cupcakes. They are super simple to create with the Silicone molds (along with several other shape options from HABA.) I can think of so many uses for these molds and each of them would come out ridiculously cute. Can you imagine the fun kids would have decorating these? Kind of like a coloring book but with colored icing and candies.

Princess Silicone Cupcake Mold

With winter break coming the kids may be asking for sleepovers and these silicone molds would make a wonderful activity. Not only will they get some yummy treats but with the DIY decorating feel to it they will be entertained. The unisex themes are perfect for co-ed sleepovers or for younger/older siblings who shouldn’t be left out. The DIY decorating shouldn’t be hard or expensive to do at all. You can fill ziploc bags with colored icing and cut off a tiny bit of the corner.

Safari Silicone Cupcake MoldThat will allow for piping the icing. Alternatively you can use paint brushes for a younger group. You can really go all out and offer both options but be prepared for a potential mess and/or sugar hyped up kiddos.

The Silicone molds are exceptionally sturdy which makes moving them around with batter a lot safer than flimsier options. I am not sure if the molds are dishwasher safe, but I have been hand washing them and they are super easy to clean. I have yet to see anything stick which is, as you know, a huge bonus. I can’t think of much worse in the doing dishes world than caked on food that won’t budge.HABA Silicone Molds Review

I’m loving the Haba Silicone Molds we received. They are so cute!! I definitely think they are worth picking up a few and checking out everything HABA offers. They rock for your cute kid stuff needs.
