Le Creuset has had a big sale going on at amazon.com for a while now and it made me wonder if perhaps, just maybe, that might possibly mean they’re going to introduce a new color. And wouldn’t it be a lovely thing if that meant they finally released a pink version of their dutch oven for Spring?! I’d die and go straight to pastel heaven if that happened. Come on Le Creuset! Make a girl’s dreams come true! My KitchenAid needs a friend.
Everyone’s favorite Food Network hottie, Giada De Laurentiis, graces the cover of the latest Crate and Barrel catalog that arrived in my mailbox this week. She’s rolling out speciality oils and spices and grinning all the way to the bank. I poke fun now, but I’m a total celebrity chef junkie so no doubt a bottle of that oil will inevitably find its way into my kitchen. I truly don’t have any self-control whatsoever.
That same catalog got me ridiculously over excited about a so-called cookware stand that could potentially cure the mess that is my pot and pan cupboard. Then I flipped out over a set of pristine bowls printed with fresh herbs that look so real I did a double take. In addition, these tomato and lettuce dish towels printed in vibrant red and green would be the perfect purchase for any cook in need of a little winter cheer. That means me. I looked like a drowned rat by the time I got home last night after a day of traipsing to and from the office in torrential downpours.
