A super tall stock pot. I have nothing that comes close to this for making chicken soup!
The Dough Hooks get no rest in this house.
That’s an “Instapot” in the corner.
This incredibly well seasoned pan is a joy. Just a joy!

My mom and my nanny taught me how to cook at a very young age. This ladle had left my memory ages ago. This is one of the ‘artifacts’ that makes this feel like Home. This is a ladle I grew up with and used from my earliest days. When I found it in the drawer, I recognized it immediately. I used it for soup as a child. I used it for soup yesterday. My sister pointed out that she thought it wasn’t a soup ladle but a ladle for a gravy boat – long gone.
To me this artifact carries the weight of countless memories as I use it. It is beautiful. It is sacred. It is a sacred artifact, as the other artifacts will be sacred artifacts to my nieces in the distant future.
