In an imaginary world we could all have the kitchen of our dreams. We don't live in an imaginary world however, and what is . . . is. I am afraid I am stuck with my little podunk kitchen . . . and all of it's lack of space. That doesn't mean I don't have a wish list however. I think everyone has a wish list. You know what I mean. A list of things you wish you could have and hope to have one day . . . once upon a time, and happily ever after . . .
Top of my list is a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer in Candy Apple Red! My daughter has a kitchen aid in candy apple red, the lucky girl! When I cooked at the Manor down south there was a Kitchen aid in the kitchen. I just loved using it. One day I hope to have one of my very own . . . and it will be Candy Apple Red! Dreams can and do come true . . . you just have to believe that they will.
I love this set of Mason Cash pottery mixing bowls. They remind me of the mixing bowl my mum used to have and how I accidentally broke it. Of course I love Mason Cash anything. I am especially fond of their Enamour line of pottery in the white with the dark blue trim.
Love this Joseph Joseph kitchen caddy and tools set. I love Joseph Joseph anything actually. I love the bright colours and their innovative designs. I would be well pleased with anything made by Joseph Joseph.
I would really love to have a decent set of saucepans etc. I have a real mish mash at the moment. Most of them are pretty old and beat up. It would be lovely to have a set of all matching ones.
Le Creuset anything . . . I love Le Creuset and I especially love this colour. I have one small casserole that I was sent a few years ago and I use that all the time. I used to have some to use when I worked at the Manor, but those didn't belong to me. I know they are heavy, but they are very good. I miss them.
I would really love to have a decent stove to cook with. The one I have now works really well, but the oven door is on the bottom and the door to it swings open just like a real door. I am always burning myself on it because it has a tendancy to swing back on me . . . plus with it being down to low, it is really awkward for me, especially with my arthritis. One of those ovens that the door slides in underneath when you open it would be great. A self cleaning oven would be really nice also.
Can you hear me Kitchen Fairy?
While I am at it I might as well ask for a decent microwave/convection oven don't you think?
Oh, and a nice gas barbeque that actually works like I want it to . . .
A decent set of glass bakewar would also be nice. Mine is all chipped and half of the casserole dishes are missing lids or I have lids with no matching casseroles . . . sigh . . .
A decent Refrigerator/freezer would be nice, bearing in mind I have a small kitchen. The one we have now was bought at a scratch and dent sale and is falling apart, plus it had a water dispensor on the door, which I realized afterwards was not worth the loss of door storage space as it leaks and we can't use it anyways.
Katie Alice Scarlett Posy anything. I adore the bright colours and shabby chic design of it all. I think I just like red, and polka dots . . . and roses.
Adore these bowls, again Katie Alice . . . and red roses.
I am awfully fond of green gate as well. I have some of their blue pieces, but have never seen the red and white. Had I done . . . I would have fallen in love with these.
Oh My Goodness . . . can you hear my heart strings plunking???
This Mason Cash Bread Baking set. Don't you just love the bowl? Oh, and that's a baking stone on the top!
Oh what I wouldn't give to have a completely redesigned kitchen with space to move around in and lots of counter space to work on rather than the 12 inch square space I have now. With lots of cupboards so that everytime I open one I don't experience an avalanch because I just have far too much stuff stuffed into the few cupboards I do have. Oh how very wonderful it would be if someone from Wickes or Wren Kitchens, right here in Chester would wave their magic fairy wand over my kitchen and do it up nice . . . with plenty of organization and help me make the most of a small space. I think this only happens in fairy tales but . . . sigh . . . a gal can dream can't she?
I would absolutely love to have a Froothie Optimum 9400 blender. These look to be very powerful and just want I need in order to be able to make my nut butters and such. The last time I tried to make almond butter I almost burnt out the engine on my food processor.
I just adore this lovely Everhot 60 in their new colour of Sage Green. What I wouldn't do to have one of those in my little kitchen. It is just the perfect size. At present my kitchen has no heat option at all and this little baby would heat my kitchen, using electricity, which makes it easy to switch on or off, quick to install, well suited to running from renewable energy and, above all, great for cooking. With features including a grill and a state-of-the-art induction hob and a wide choice of sizes, colours and options having one of these would be an absolute dream come true.
It also comes in a larger model the Everhot 100i. It's just gorgeous, but if I got one of those . . . I would definitely need a new kitchen as I really couldn't fit one of these lovely babies into my teensie weensie cooking spot! I just adore this colour . . . sigh . . .
