If you are lucky, you have someone in your life that loves to cook – and does it really well. My mother is one of the best self-taught chefs I know and I feel so fortunate that every meal she prepared was delicious. In the winter, I’d awake to the aroma of baked apples stuffed with raisins and walnuts, and as I headed downstairs for breakfast it was whisked out of the oven and placed in front of me with a small pitcher of cold whole cream to drizzle on top. Dinner was no exception. She was a single parent raising three children and keeping her family together, literally and figuratively was paramount to her. We worked around drama club, volleyball and soccer practice and once everyone was home, we sat down to dinner together as a family. Even if it was 8pm. Dinner was at least a three-course meal, sometimes more, that consisted of everything homemade. Salad, soup, an entrée and dessert – and she amazed us every day by preparing something new.
Ambience is at least half the pleasure of dining well, therefore, the dining table was always set elegantly with our best glasses, plates and flatware. There wasn’t any of the nonsense of saving “the good stuff” for special occasions, she didn’t see the point in that. Here is a roundup of some really beautiful Anthropologie cookware that are delicate and so pretty in their pastel colors and luminescent finish. I believe that they are intended for the people in your life who elevate their style and aren’t afraid of cooking with the good stuff #thanksmom #lifeisshort #usethegoodstuffnowmyfriends
