Happy Valentine's Day!
If you came here expecting hearts and candies, you're outta luck. DPaul and I do not really observe Valentine's Day, or at least not with the kind of fervor that maybe we once did when we first started dating. Or maybe we didn't. It's been a long time.
Not that I haven't had love and affection on the brain lately. I had the opportunity to express my devotion to an item in our kitchen for Leite's Culinaria — not a favorite item, per se, but favored, an item that has endeared itself to my heart. I wrote about our kitchen table. It's a tale of passion and conflict, and there's a happy ending to boot. Check it out.
It's not the first time I've written a mash note to an inanimate object. Time was, I used to wax rhapsodic about kitchen products all the time, from wooden spatulas to Popeners, and during my time writing for social shopping site ThisNext, I even wrote a potboiler to Recchiuti fleur de sel caramels. But can you really blame me?
What kitchen item has your undying devotion?
