It’s inevitable that, as a sitter, curiosity has me compare what I have in my home in the way of kitchen gadgets and cooking supplies with that of the homeowners. I love to learn from them, and use some of the methods, tools, and foods. I have adopted some things I’ve learned from being in other people’s kitchens. Here are some examples, although I’m sure I have many more:
Le Creuset cast iron cookware - a French oven that never leaves my stovetop as it’s so beautiful.
A mini Instant Pot, once I learned how simple it is to make ‘Cold Start’ yogurt. I now use it for so many other things that I’d never considered.
Simple maybe, but a brush for washing dishes - I’d only ever used a cloth, but it often comes in useful.
My latest - balsamic drizzle (not vinegar) that is oh so delicious.
There are also various housekeeping ‘tricks’ that I’ve adopted, but I’ll stay with food as we all seem to love that topic.
