How rude of me! How long have we been friends and I still haven’t given you a tour?! Excuse my lapse of hospitality for a quick tour of my little kitchen!
As you can see, it is a very narrow kitchen. The kitchen can barely handle having two people.. so you can imagine how crazy it gets when I’m trying to bake and my apartment-mates are trying to cook their dinner. It’s not pretty.
Needless to say, I have managed to somehow survive despite the cramped conditions. Thanks largely in part to the large dining table that also serves as my storage/work space. Perfect for rolling out dough and an ideal space to stack/pile my baking junk! 🙂
This table is technically our dining table… but since we don’t own chairs, I have laid claim to it. hehe. It’s usually this messy. Unfortunately. I can only keep it clean on average for about 2 days. 😦 I am not the neatest kid on the block. That’s for sure.
Also, in the back corner you can see my pantry/pseudo-cupboard for all my ingredients and supplies and bakeware. It is full to the brim and yet.. you see how messy the table is. YIKES. I need more storage space!
You like my creative use of space? Yeah. My stove is usually that messy too. Gotta use all the counter-space I can get!
Brilliant, isn’t it? Where else could I store my 25 lb bags of sugar and flour without fear of mess or pests? My cooler, of course! 🙂
Here are some of my most favorite tools! 🙂
I obviously have other tools that are indispensable for my baking adventures. I unfortunately do not have pictures and you probably wouldn’t care to see them. 🙂 But I am hoping to get some new cupcake tins and cookie sheets soon, because some of them are 3 years old and starting to rust… (don’t worry, I usually cover with foil or parchment paper!). Yes yes. And one can never have too many mixing bowls or rubber spatulas. hehe. I can’t wait to hit up Surfas in a couple weeks! Shopping spreeeee!
I hope everyone is enjoying their sunny and warm 3-day weekend! 😀
