Zero-Waste Wrapping: How To Wrap a Furoshiki Cloth, Step by Step

At a recent dinner party, I was entranced when a friend unpacked her backpack to reveal each of her dinner contributions: a bottle of wine, half a loaf of fresh bread, and six Bosc pears, each group intricately bundled in specifically-knotted furoshiki cloth wraps. The wrapping was not only practical, preventing the wine bottle from smashing into the delicate pears on her walk over, but also elevated the whole experience and made the packages feel like gifts. Furoshiki is a centuries-old traditi...

You Should Store Food in Clear Containers

I love my vintage fridge-to-oven Pyrex dishes. They look great on the table, in the fridge, and in photos, but there’s one small issue with them: I rarely end up eating the leftovers contained within the colorful, stackable glass rectangles.Read more...

A Functional and Truly Usable Food Storage Solution

The storage of food is a market that designers have tackled a lot in the past, but none of the solutions have looked or worked quite like this one. Slock’s designer, Minki Kim, viewed the area from a different viewpoint and identified that common food storage systems focused primarily on the functionality and overlooked the usability, making the containers difficult to carry around, especially multiple at a time.Slock’s design allows three containers to be carried using the curved, comfortable h...

Domestic Science: A Cork Lid Hack for Weck Jars

I can proudly report that my kitchen cabinet is stocked with decanted flours, lentils, and spices in perfectly aligned Weck jars. The process itself was cleansing and cathartic, but now I’m left with one issue. The little metal clamps that seal Weck glass lids are impossibly fiddly and often go MIA (they tend to fly off the jar and land in parts unknown). Enter the cork lid, made in Germany, which turn the Weck jar into an easily accessed (and sealed) storage canister. Above: Designed to fit ...

Save Yourself Some Grief by Assigning Plastic Food Containers a Meal Type

Above: The Cha Garlic Pot in Black, like the other designs in Van Heijningen’s collection, are based on traditional Thai and Bangladeshi designs.

To Keep Spices Fresh Longer, Never Sprinkle Them Directly Over a Hot Pot

Have you ever noticed that spice grinders usually come with a bossy warning to “Avoid grinding over steaming pots?” I had always assumed it had something to do with not burning the spices (or yourself,) but it’s actually for the good of the spices, not your hands.Read more...

REVIEW – Debbie Meyer Green Boxes, Bags And Cake Cutters

The product(s) featured in this post was provided free of cost to me. Please note that, as always, any personal opinions reflected in this post are my own and have not been influenced by the sponsor in any way. I love freshly baked goods. Soft, chewy cookies are a favorite around here. Sadly, usually if you don’t eat them within about 24 hours of making them they start to harden and the taste changes. Cake behaves similarly. You get a really good feeling when you make a cake that is just right,...
