Vintage Kitchen Tools and Dishes

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware. 

On the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site.

Vintage Cookbooks

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.

You can always find treasures on sites that sell used items such as Vintage Cookbooks on eBay and Vintage Cookbooks on Etsy

I used Gefen Organic Beets. Absolutely Phenomenal! Flavor and Texture are Perfect. I used a little less sugar than called for as well as Himalayan Pink Salt. Beets are my Favorite Vegetable! So happy. Hope the bowl lasts until my guests arrive!
