Being a college student, I’ve gotten really good at working with what I’ve got. Yes, I may get some grocery money from my parents, and yes, I do make a bit of money working as a research assistant, but it’s not much. Especially because I love cooking so much. My budget would be way more manageable if I could tolerate eating Top Ramen and mac ‘n’ cheese for every meal, but I just can’t. I do have a few appliances that many college students don’t (and wouldn’t know how to use anyway) such as my pride and joy- my Kitchen Aid mixer (which I inherited from my mom after she loved and cared for it for 18 years), a George Foreman grill (purchased at Good Will for $7, oh yeah!), and a small crock pot (a gift from my boyfriend for my birthday). Although these allow me to prepare just about anything, I can’t help but have my eye on a few things.
For example, this gorgeous “make and take” bakeware from Chantal.
Or this pizza stone from Williams-Sonoma.
Or their Madeleine pan.
I could really, really use a nice, big food processor, like this pink KitchenAid Cook for the Cure model.
I love this spice rack from Ikea. It would work perfectly hanging from the towel rack on my baking cart (pictures soon to come of its remodel).
