Resolved to get more involved in the kitchen this year? You aren’t alone. It’s a pretty common goal, after all; you get to cross off “save money” and “eat better” while you do it, and efficiency like that is hard to beat. That said, if you aren’t sure where to get started, it can be a little daunting.
Do you have the right pots? Pans? Accoutrements? Are you so used to eating out of containers that you’ve forgotten where your dinner plates even are? Let me be the first to say that I get it. I recently moved, and takeout and to-go items are so much easier than finding where I put all of my stuff and figuring out my way around a new space.
So for you and for me, I pulled together this list of versatile kitchen essentials that will actually want to make us get in there and fire stuff up. From dainty place settings to Instagram-friendly cookware, here’s everything you (we) need for home cooking to be easy as pie.
Incidentally, I have a super easy pie crust recipe to share, but I’ll save that for another article.
