My Colorful Kitchen Gadgets


I find most of my colorful tools and gadgets at Sur La Table, Pier One, World Market, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, Walmart, and even some drug stores, hardware stores and vintage shops. I’d rather go shopping for spatulas than shoes!

    Hi jenny.

    Wondering your opinion or prefernce on cooking pans?

    • Jenny

      I use so many brands, some expensive, some not, but I always like Berndes.

    There is a fry pan which is large and deep which you use alot to brown and braise, you mentioned you bought it at Target but i can’t recall the brand. BTW..great recipes !!!!!

    Your recipe for the crusty top bread in the yellow dutch oven. What size dutch oven and if I wanted to make it sourdough or honey wheat how would I do that. So glad I found your channel. My disabled 11 year old son and I watch it and love making your recipes. Congrats on your success.

    I could really use your suggestion on good kitchen knives. We have sharpened ours till we couldn’t anymore and have since bought 2 sets that were not even sharp that we had to return! One costed over $200 while the other was on sale for $30.

    Oh Jenny, I just discovered your videos and website and I am thrilled! Not only do you cook like I do, your comments and presentation are so “friendly” but most of all, you’re Polish!! I also am and was raised on the south side of Chicago. I just wanted to thank you for your amazing productions. I haven’t even seen more than two or three of your videos and just now found your website and blog.
    You are just wonderful and I know I have many happy hours of watching you cook. And I love your sense of humor….fantastic!

    Help! Jenny, when I made your pie crust for the pumpkin pie recipe it turned out crispy and not flaky. I followed your easy steps of 1 2/3 cups of all purpose flour, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/3 cup of olive oil and 1/3 cup of 1% milk. Not sure what happened. Could it be that I used Bertolli extra virgin olive oil and not the light version? Also, after placing it in the deep dish pie plate I perhaps overworked it by pressing it too much to get more up the sides? Would that make it crispy by overworking it? Thanks in advance!

    • Jenny

      I don’t think an oil crust will be as flaky as a shortening crust but it’s possible overworking the dough could have made it a little tough. I suggest trying it again with a light, flavorless oil, and handle it as little as possible and see if you’re happy with it.

    I see you say you have not made good pork chop dinner. This recipe has been given to me by a relative. I’m new to your site, but have been on it all day, printing your recipes to try. Love your videos.
    6 or more pork chops with bone in
    Brown in frying pan
    Put in roasting pan with lil olive oil in bottom
    add fresh minced garlic, salt, pepper, one cup water, one cup of white wine, fresh parsley. Cover pan very tightly with aluminum foil, bake on 250 for at least 4 hours or longer. Comes out pull apart delicious. Can pour juices over chops.

    I love your colorful kitchen gadgets, but especially your beautiful aprons! Do you make them yourself? I grew up always wearing an apron in the kitchen, but nice ones are getting hard to find nowadays. Thank you for your wonderful recipies and cooking tips.
    Your fan, Lizbeth

    • Jenny

      I’ve made a few but Anthropologie has nice aprons.

    • Mamamimi

      I just love wearing aprons…find them indispensable and fun at the same time. All the major pattern companies have dozens and dozens of neat patterns to make them. If you watch their sales, JoAnn’s frequently has pattern sales for $1 each.
