One of the standout features of our new kitchen is, without a doubt, our black stainless KitchenAid appliances. We finally feel like we’re living in the 21st century because our old appliances barely turned on, ha! And don’t even get me started on the old oven… The new ones have a lot of innovative features, from complete connectivity for our Smart Oven+ with Powered Attachments via the KitchenAid app, to even heat technology built into our gas cooktop, but one of my favorite features is the color and finish. Any time we bring something new into our home (especially investment pieces), I always research how to take care of them properly. Today I’m sharing tips on how to take care of KitchenAid black stainless steel appliances.

When I think more about our zero waste goals and the small changes we’ve made to accomplish them, I immediately think of food storage. Grocery stores are bursting at the seams with plastic and excessive packaging, so I’ve changed my habits and shop at farmers markets now. But the question I’m often asked is “When it all gets home, how do you store produce without plastic?” I suppose the concern is that food could spoil more easily without plastic and lead to additional food waste. Shifting the behavior is so easy, especially with these tips to help you store produce without plastic.

While we were working on our new kitchen, all I wanted to do was finish it. First, so I could resume cooking… but mostly so I could style it!

I’ve shared so many photos of it on Instagram and I always get questions about where things are from. So I figured it was time to share a post all about how to style a kitchen with a full source list of my favorite kitchen accessories + similar items.

Paintzen Review, aka My New Home Renovation Obsession

Here’s one thing that I’ve never told you: I loathe painting rooms. I am quite literally the least patient person in the world, so doing anything that requires extensive prep work is basically an impossible task for me. When I tried to paint our bathroom white last winter to make it look less derelict, I got paint everywhere. Not only just my entire body, but the shower head, the back of our toilet (???), and the cat. BUT there is good news on the horizon: I’m here to tell you that I will never paint another room by myself again thanks to Paintzen!
