I Can Haz New Toyz?


So, as you may have noticed, I have a shiny new badge over on the right-hand side of my blog – yes, I am now a Foodbuzz Featured Publisher! Happy times! I’m just glad that I’ll be able to share my Feeder habits with you all with Foodbuzz behind me – I’m gon’ make you fat. Actually, one of my friends said that to me the other day – we went for a coffee and she said that if we lived together I would definitely make her put on a lot of weight because of my Feeder ways. I guess that’s a compliment to my cooking…

Anyway, Foodbuzz aside, you may have noticed that I have some new toys! There’s a fantastic cooks’ haven called Whisk where I often go to gaze upon their beautiful cookware and lust after items I can’t afford. However, thanks to the end of formalised education and my continued part-time job selling posh baby items (ooOOOooh, seriously though, you having a baby? I can hook you up with some badass stuff), I’m in the money and slowly but surely I’m working on building up my perfect kitchen.

Now I like gadgets just as much as any other aspiring Heston Blumenthall (but female. And with a much easier name to pronounce), but too many gadgets in your kitchen just screams hassle and mess to me. Sure, they may be fun to play with at first, but then you’ve gotta clean ’em up! And put ’em away! And deep down I am just far too lazy for all that hassle. And storage space?! Hello. However, the one thing I was severely lacking were measuring cups and measuring spoons. I KNOW. How does one bake without these vital items? With great deviation between recipe and product, that’s how. NO LONGER SHALL I HAVE MISSHAPEN BAKED GOODS, NO! Those inaccurately measured proportional ways are behind me! I mean, just LOOK at that beautiful set of measuring cups! Look! They’re red and gorgeous! And they come with a leveller! And they didn’t cost me an arm and a leg! I KNOW.

And how about these little measuring spoons? Are these just not ADORABLE? Also, hello, you can see my reflection in the big one as I was snapping this photo. You’ve already seen these measuring spoons in the previous post (spice montage, boom) but I just love them. I know, they’re very standard, but I am all about the functionality and clean, silvery, hygienic feel. I have issues (as the boyfriend likes to continually tell me…).

Anyway, that’s about it for now. I just wanted to share the good news. Also, something pretty exciting, this afternoon I’m going down to Mooli’s to have a chat with Mathew and Sam, the co-founders/owners, take some photos and indulge in some Mooli goodness. More about that later, but exciting times! You should check them out – not only do they seem like awesome guys but I’ve only been hearing rave reviews about their Moolis!

Right, that’s all for now, I have a really tasty entry to post for my Foodie Project competition in the next couple of days, and if you’re wondering, ‘what on earth is that?’ then you should read this page and get involved! Awesome prize up for grabs!

Okay folks, until next time – peace and love.

    Yeah for cute measuring cups! This is somewhat embarrassing, but I actually take my cups with me when I travel…you never know when you are going to want to bake a cake!

    Hi, Jax. I was planning on doing the FBFP thang, too, as they just sent me the contract today (does this make us cosmic twins now or are we just ridin' the same gustatory wavelength across oceans?). What prompted you to do FBFP?

    Now, I forgot to mention that red is my favourite colour. If I only had fewer than six or seven measuring cups, I might be able to justify this wacky set…. Dan

    I love new kitchen toys! Even if I have no immediate use for them! :-P

    Monet – that's somewhat adorable… if a little mad. Do you often bake when you're away?! I love it.

    Dan – we are most definitely twinnies. I'm convinced – our lives match up far too well! I applied for the FBFP because I was writing all these recipes and sharing photos and it just seemed like a waste to only share it with, er, me, myself and I. And as for the cups, they're RED, Dan, RED! You should definitely purchase something red for your kitchen… it needs it, I tell you!

    Jessica – I know that feeling well. The only thing that stops me from buying everything in sight, is, er, poverty. But a good thing to stop me, eh? ;) Thanks for swinging by!

    I love that of the whole post that's the phrase you like the most, Ash. It's so true though, right?
